Molecular Hydrogen Improves Obesity and Diabetes in Mice

Obesity and diabetes often go hand in hand. According to the Centers for Disease and Control (CDC), nearly half (39.8%) of the American population is obese. Also, along with an increased risk of cancers and heart disease, type 2 diabetes often occurs alongside obesity. Consequently, obesity is often the result of an unhealthy lifestyle due to lack of exercise and a diet that includes:

  • Fast foods
  • Snacks containing processed ingredients
  • Saturated fats
  • Sugars

When treating obesity and type 2 diabetes, increased exercise, changes in diet and insulin shots can prevent major health issues. Moreover, research shows that molecular hydrogen can also provide a wealth of benefits to those struggling.

The Study

A study published in  Nutrition used mice to examine the benefits of molecular hydrogen. The litter of mice included males with diabetes and others without diabetes. Researchers fed the mice H2-rich water every day.

The researchers used a variety of tools to measure the effects of the H2 water on the mice, including:

  • Electrode currents
  • Blood and tissue samples
  • Body fat composition analysis
  • Behavior analysis and more


At the end of the experiment, researchers found that drinking hydrogen-rich water resulted in the following:

  • Improvement in fatty liver
  • Positive effects on gene expression
  • A decrease in oxidative stress
  • Increase in energy metabolism

All of these things significantly combat the issues associated with obesity and diabetes. Furthermore, it can be concluded that drinking hydrogen-rich water offers great healing potential.

The Role of Oxidation Stress

In this study, researchers noted an interest in using molecular hydrogen. Also, they noted various studies that show molecular hydrogen decreases oxidation stress. Consequently, oxidation stress is the cause of or contributor to all human disease. This state occurs when there are too many free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules with unpaired electrons.

Because electrons prefer to be in pairs, free radicals try to steal electrons from other cells. Consequently, cell damage and death occur.

Molecular hydrogen (H2) neutralizes free radicals by turning them into harmless water. Free radicals are oxygen-containing molecules. Because H2 contains two hydrogen molecules, it is able to donate one to the free radical, turning it into harmless water.

Benefits of Hydrogen-Enriched Water

Drinking H2 water isn’t the only way to improve health. However, there are many benefits to consuming hydrogen-enriched water, including:

  • Hydration
  • Decreased consumption of sugary drinks
  • Helps the body remove wastes
