You may be familiar with hydrogen water or have heard of a hydrogen water generator. While hydrogen water is definitely a popular way to consume hydrogen, breathing hydrogen with a hydrogen inhaler is another common mechanism of delivery. Hydrogen gas is a powerful cell signalling molecule with potent anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Inhaling hydrogen gas with a hydrogen therapy machine allows this powerful molecule to rapidly disperse throughout your body, and is being widely studied for the treatment of a variety of health conditions.
Inhaled hydrogen has been shown to have numerous health benefits, and has been shown to be generally safe in a large number of human and animal studies. In fact, hydrogen has been granted GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) status by the FDA, and in studies going back to the 1940s, no toxic effects of hydrogen consumption have ever been reported.
Hydrogen is all natural- in fact we make (actually the bacteria in our gut make) up to 10L of hydrogen gas per day in our colon. This is one of the reasons that hydrogen therapy is so effective- we’re already wired to recognize it at a cellular level.
