The Miracle of
We recently learned that the most important number related to our water is not pH . In fact, the most important number in health and wellness may not be your PSA, cholesterol or blood pressure, or ORAC. The most important number is the Number 1 on the Table of Periodic Elements, "Hydrogen." To be more specific diatomic molecular hydrogen. That tiny, pervasive, immensely powerful hydrogen.
Why H2 Is So Powerful
H2 is an extraordinary antioxidant, a free radical quencher that selectively scavenges the most dangerous and destructive hydroxyl radicals. Hydroxyl radicals initiate their cycle of destruction by stealing electrons from molecules in DNA, proteins, and fats, destabilizing them and setting off a chain reaction of oxidative stress. H2 readily gives up electrons to hydroxyl radicals, which stabilizes them and stops them in their tracks. It also reduces the toxicity of peroxynitrite, another destructive oxidant, and further boosts the body’s defenses by increasing production of natural antioxidants such as glutathione, superoxide dismutase, and catalase.
