“It is not surprising to me that hydrogen has therapeutic potential because we have always been exposed to it. For example, nearly 14 billion years ago, hydrogen was produced by the “Big Bang,” 3.6 billion years ago the earth’s atmosphere was rich in hydrogen gas, which was essential in the genesis of life (e.g. hydrogenases, hydrogenosomes, mitochondria, etc.). Humans developed a symbiotic relationship with hydrogen-producing bacteria. Perhaps the reason that hydrogen has a beneficial biological effect is because we have been exposed to hydrogen gas since the dawn of time. I am extremely interested in knowing the primary targets of hydrogen gas”
“While hydrogen’s antioxidant effects have been the primary focus of hundreds of studies since the 2007 Nature Medicine publication, I’m more intrigued by the studies suggesting that hydrogen regulates various signal transduction pathways.
Although the exact underlying molecular mechanisms and primary targets of hydrogen remain elusive, hydrogen may regulate these pathways via modifying lipid peroxidation cascades, protein phosphorylations, and gene expressions, resulting in anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy, and potential anti-aging benefits.
Due to the clinical significance of hydrogen, the goal of the science-based nonprofit Molecular Hydrogen Foundation (MHF), is to help advance the research, education, and awareness of hydrogen as a therapeutic medical gas.”
