Hydrogen is the smallest and lightest element in the Periodic Table. Hydrogen Therapy is emerging as an important new branch of Medicine. Recent understanding suggests it can even be used to help treat a cytokine storm.


Research into medical uses for Hydrogen has shown benefits in many different areas of health in recent years. It improves athletic performance, and helps protect against CTE.



With its ability to penetrate the Blood Brain Barrier and enter Mitochondria, Hydrogen Therapy has great potential to prevent and treat many difficult to treat conditions.


In the beginning ...

Hydrogen is the first and most abundant element in the Universe. Two atoms combine to form hydrogen gas, H2, the smallest, lightest and most mobile molecule. Approximately 3.6 billion years ago molecular hydrogen served as the original energy source for primordial cellular life, fuelling its metabolic processes and neutralising harmful chemicals alike. Recent research has shown that cells have not lost this ability to utilise molecular hydrogen.

Health researchers worldwide are rediscovering these forgotten benefits in a big way. There are now more than 1500 research papers and clinical studies with animals and people showing that molecular hydrogen can be a beneficial nutrient in nearly every facet of human physiology, especially at the cellular level. Molecular hydrogen's physical properties give it greater cellular bio-availability than any other nutrient or nutraceutical. It can rapidly diffuse into cells, mitochondria and throughout the body to deliver its unique and abundant benefits. These include but are not limited to

  • a potent antioxidant that selectively scavenges hydroxyl radicals, the most dangerous and destructive free radicals, converting them to harmless water molecules that contribute to cellular hydration which has its own benefits.
  • boosting levels of other important anti-oxidants such as glutathione, superoxide dismutase, catalase etc .
  • assisting in modulating cell signalling and gene expression, including pathways that dampen inflammation, allergies and obesity.
  • stimulating production of ghrelin, a hormone involved in appetite control that also protects organs such as the brain and liver.
