Is molecular hydrogen a literal fountain of youth? Well, we don’t want to veer into a mythical territory. However, molecular hydrogen (H2) provides several anti-aging benefits. These anti-aging benefits are backed by several scientific studies.
One reason that molecular hydrogen affects aging is that of its effect on telomerase activity.
Telomerase is an enzyme that increases the strength of telomeres. Does that answer your question?
We didn’t think so.
To break it down simply, telomeres are the caps on each side of a chromosome, which is a DNA molecule. A comprehensive article published in Microbiology and Molecular Biology Reviews dives deep into the growing understanding of telomeres telomerase activity. In short, it has a great impact on aging. Furthermore, the stability of telomeres appears essential for preventing cell death and cancer.
Studies show molecular hydrogen positively affects telomerase activity. Thus, this lends itself to molecular hydrogen’s anti-aging benefits.
According to a study published in the American Journal of Food and Nutrition, drinking hydrogen-enriched water increases telomerase activity. Therefore, it shows great potential when it comes to anti-aging benefits.
Another study found that hydrogen-rich water affects telomerase activity as well as SIRT1 gene expression. SIRT1 is another biomarker that affects the aging process. This study went on to note that hydrogen-enriched water behaves similarly to insulin, meaning that it can potentially help those with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
And yet another study published in the Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology found that bathing in hydrogen-enriched water decreased the appearance of neck wrinkles in participants.
Molecular hydrogen benefits cell signaling, metabolism and gene expression. This a boon for those seeking anti-aging benefits and help with other ailments. By positively affecting different mechanisms within the cell, H2 has the potential to decrease illnesses that cause inflammation as well as allergies. This benefit also has the potential to prevent and reduce the effects of obesity.
Because H2 is so small (smaller than any molecule, in fact) it can enter the cell with ease. This means that, along with gene expression, H2 can enter the mitochondria, where nutrients are converted into energy.
Furthermore, the antioxidant benefits of H2 encourage several different protective responses to occur in the body.
Finally, molecular hydrogen is a powerful weapon against the war on oxidation stress.
Free radicals lead to a state of oxidation stress because they interact with other healthy cells in a way that is damaging. Molecular hydrogen neutralizes free radicals by turning them into harmless water. In addition, H2 corrects damage done to the cell so that free radicals are no longer produced.
