Drinking hydrogen water has many benefits but did you know that there are over 500 peer-reviewed articles and 1,600 researchers looking at the medical effects of hydrogen? Here are just a few published studies.
H2 Water and Diabetes
More than three million Canadians have diabetes and the global diabetes rate has risen by nearly half over the past two decades. The prevalence of diabetes has been rising in rich countries for several decades, largely driven by increases in the rate of obesity. More recently, poorer countries have begun to follow the trend, with major increases in countries like China, Mexico and India. Although health outcomes for the disease have improved – rates of complications including heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure and amputations fell sharply over the past two decades – treatment for patients has placed an enormous strain on health care resources.
A clinical trial in patients with type 2 diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance showed that drinking (900L) of hydrogen water for eight weeks decreased cholesterol, normalized glucose tolerance and improved insulin resistance in a majority of the treated patients. In addition, treating diabetic mice with hydrogen water significantly improved heart muscle function, indicating that molecular hydrogen could be useful for diabetic heart muscle disease as well. H2 water could be a significant breakthrough for treating diabetes and helping to curb this health-care epidemic.
H2 Water and Cancer
H2 water can be effective at all stages of a cancer diagnosis. Heated hydrogen water was found to be an effective anti-tumor agent. In human tongue and connective tissue cancer cells, hydrogen water suppressed tumor colony growth by reducing oxidative stress. Hydrogen water also inhibited blood vessel growth in cultured human lung cancer cells. In a study on patients receiving radiation therapy for malignant liver tumors, drinking hydrogen water suppressed oxidative stress and prevented the loss of appetite. We are only just starting to see the many benefits for cancer treatment and prevention.
H2 Water and Liver Disease
Drinking hydrogen water suppressed liver fibrogenesis in mice by protecting liver cells from free-radical damage. Hydrogen water also significantly improved liver f unction and reduced oxidative stress in patients with chronic hepatitis B.
Although these results are still mostly at the research stage, they will significantly pave the way to human benefits for these diseases and many more.
