H2

Simple but Remarkable

"It is not an overstatement to say that hydrogen's impact on therapeutic and preventive medicine could be enormous in the future." 1

 

"Hydrogen has marked therapeutic potential to help with the top 8 fatality-causing diseases listed by the CDC." - Brandon Dixon and colleagues from Loma Linda University. 2

 

“Finally, the use of hydrogen for acute and chronic medical conditions is rapidly being eclipsed by the use of hydrogen for health maintenance, exercise, and physical performance, as well as aging. These areas of hydrogen use will continue to grow and will ultimately dwarf the current clinical uses of hydrogen in our society” - Dr. Garth L. Nicholson (Nobel Prize nominee) about the future of hydrogen for medical application. 3

Hydrogen Facts:

  • The most abundant element
  • Constitutes 75% of the universe
  • Smallest and lightest atom, with one proton and one electron, making it first on the periodic table
  • Virtually every other element derived from Hydrogen
  • Can exist in the form of gas, liquid, and a recently discovered metallic state
  • Colorless, odorless, tasteless, flammable, diatomic gas
  • Mostly found on earth in the form of water (H2O) and in the form of organic compounds
  • An essential element for life and plays vital role in the human body
  • Exists in most organic molecules
  • The central point of the acid-base reactions

Hydrogen is more apart of us then we all know.  

 

Molecular Hydrogen Facts:

  • Two hydrogen atoms, covalently bonded together (sharing electrons)
  • Neutral in charge
  • Lighter than air itself
  • Flammable between 4%-75%, except when dissolved in water
  • A clean energy source; 3 times more energy dense than gasoline
  • Has been used in fuel cell technology, agriculture, etc
  • It was not until the 21st century that it was discovered to potential have remarkable therapeutic benefits to the human body
  • Multiple therapeutic functions, some of which are still being discovered.
  • Now being recognized as a medical gas exerting antioxidant effects, anti-inflammatory effects, anti-cellular death effects, etc.

History

History of H2 as a medical gas

1520 - Hydrogen was accidentally discovered by Philippus Aureolus Paracelsus. He was doing an experiment involving acid and metal and observed a mysterious flammable gas as a byproduct. 1

1766 - Henry Cavendish, a British philosopher, and scientist, officially distinguished hydrogen as a flammable air that forms water upon combustion. 23

1783 - Antoine Lavoisier, often referred to as the modern father of chemistry, first used the word "hydrogene" to describe the gas. The word derives from the greek word for "hydro" meaning water, and "gene" meaning forming of creating. Essentially, hydrogen means "water-forming". 45

1798 - First publication mentioning hydrogen gas having medical properties. 6

1888 - The Annals of Surgery recorded one of the very first publications that linked hydrogen to medicine. It referenced Dr. Nicolas Senn, who at the time was using H2 for intestinal applications. 789

1943 - Swedish engineer, Arne Zetterstrom, used hydrogen gas for the first time for deep sea diving. 1011

1960s - The U.S. Navy began using a hydrogen gas mixture called hydroleox, and noticed that it helped to ameliorate decompression sickness and they were also able to dive deeper while breathing it. They used it at very high concentrations, as high as 98.87% H2, with 1.26% O2 at 19.1 ATM, all with minimal to no cytotoxic effects. Because of this, we can know that the safety profile of using H2 is extremely high. 1213

1975 - The University of Baylor and Texas A&M departments of chemistry and biology published a formidable study in the Journal of Science on the potential of molecular hydrogen in medicine. 14

2007 - Article published in the prestigious journal, Nature Medicine, about how H2 works to selectively neutralize the hydroxyl radical. Up until this time there were only about 50 publications on Hydrogen gas. 15

2017 - There is currently over 700 studies and reviews over H2 and its medical use, including applications for over 170 disease models, and it is growing rapidly. At the rate at which the research is being done, with over 1600 researchers and more emphasis being on clinical studies, molecular hydrogen has a high probability of being a formidable medical gas in the future. 16

PPM
What is PPM?

PPM stands for Parts Per Million.

This measurement is similar to 1 out of 100, but it means 1 out of a million. Usually, PPM is used measuring the concentration of something in water or soil.

For example, pertaining to hydrogen water: If we had a 16oz bottle of hydrogen water measuring at 1ppm of dissolved of H2, then for every million parts of water, there is 1 part H2. 

Based on research, hydrogen water containing .5 to 1.6 ppm of dissolved H2 can provide therapeutic benefits to the human body, but PPM's are not the whole story. 

PPM's = to mg/L (milligrams/Liter)

Preliminary data from research is telling us that 1-3 mg of H2 a day exerts therapeutic effects to the human body. 

How do these two statements fit together?

  1. Hydrogen water containing .5 to 1.6 ppm of dissolved H2 can provide therapeutic benefits to the human body.
  2. Research says that 1-3 mg of H2 a day exerts therapeutic to the human body. 

Both of these statements work in relation to each other. 

Figuring your milligrams of H2 a day:

This is really simple. 

1 ppm is equal to 1 mg/per liter (33.8 oz): 

For example: if you drink 1 liter of hydrogen rich water with a hydrogen concentration at 1 ppm, then you would have consumed 1 mg of H2.

The higher the dissolved H2 the less volume of water is needed to hit milligrams of H2 per day mark of 1-3mg.  

For example: if you drink 1 liter of H2 water with a hydrogen concentration at 3 ppm, you would have consumed 3 mg of H2. This means that you have reached the goal of 1-3 mg of H2 for the day with only 1 liter of water.

The two statements are saying that water containing .5 to 1.6 ppm of dissolved molecular hydrogen can be therapeutic if one were to drink 1 to 6 liters of hydrogen water day, depending on the dissolved hydrogen concentration. 

Note: 

1-3 mg is not the minimal amount needed to provide benefits from ingesting H2. 1-3 mg simply appears to be the amount that is generally used in human studies, which does show therapeutic effects.

There are many factors (e.g. size, genetics, diet, etc.) and in some cases diseases, in which the amount of H2 needed may be higher or lower.
