The medicinal properties of molecular hydrogen appear to be promoted as early as 1888. Many years later in 1975, the departments of Biology and Chemistry from the prestigious Baylor University and Texas A&M published a great article on the potential use of molecular hydrogen in medicine in the premier peer-reviewed journal of Science.
However, it wasn’t until 2007, when Professor Ohta of the Japanese Medical University investigated with nine colleagues the healing properties of a miracle fountain in Nordenau, Germany. The group of doctors reported that the water is alkaline and contains small amounts of hydrogen which afterwards was found also in several other places on this planet: The documented "healing" or "curative" waters of Lurdes, France; Tlacote, Mexico; and Hita Tenryosui, Japan waters also contain dissolved hydrogen gas.
They published the report in Nature Medicine with the title Hydrogen acts as a therapeutic antioxidant by selectively reducing cytotoxic oxygen radicals which states that molecular hydrogen has selective antioxidant properties and anti-apoptotic (anti-cell death) activity. This is the 2007 study that started it all and caused all of the excitement.
Since that review article, the biomedical field took a strong interest in hydrogen’s therapeutic potential and has produced over 600 additional articles that have been published substantiating that declaration. Currently about 160 different disease models have been studied, in which molecular hydrogen appears to exert a beneficial effect.
The promise is to reactivate the inner healing power of the body by preventing the formation of bad radicals. These radicals are the cause and reason for most suffering and failure to heal.
Hydrogen and skin rejuvenation: as documented here, one can recover in record time skin from serious sun burns, it strengthens the skin, recovers elasticity and moistures perfectly.
Tyler LeBaron, founder and executive director of molecular hydrogen foundation, says this last human study was particularly significant.
"The study also reveals that in human subjects, bathing in hydrogen water for three months significantly improved wrinkles in the skin," LeBaron says. "The authors concluded that hydrogen water might serve as a daily skin care to repress UVA-induced skin damage by scavenging free radicals and promoting type-1 collagen synthesis."

Our skin is constantly exposed to radical producing elements. We need help to not dry out, not to wrinkle away and start to malfunction because of inflammations. Everybody benefits from consuming hydrogen, no matter the age.
Here is one long sentence explaining how and why it helps any living being:
Hydrogen has a couple of interesting effects but the main feature is it is behaving like an "anti-oxidant" by promoting the inhibition of bad radical formation which then changes into anti-inflammatory because of the missing harmful radicals.
The last, maybe greatest feature is it resets the body's signal modulation to normal values. Hydrogen water contains tiny volumes of hydrogen that nonetheless can have a huge impact on the operation of the body. High blood pressure had normalized in three days by drinking 1-2 liters of Hydrogen water per day. [Testimonial]
There are no safety issues with hydrogen, it has been used for years in gas mixtures for deep-sea diving and in numerous clinical trials without adverse events, and there are no warnings in the literature of its toxicity or long-term exposure effects. Here is THE LIST of everything we know about hydrogen
There are three kinds of hydrogen ingestion:
- One method is breathing a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen directly
- Another method is taking in hydrogen through digestion or the venous system
- The third method is spreading hydrogen subcutaneously or introducing aerogenic bacteria to generate hydrogen.
In short, breathe it, apply gas or water and drink it.

Studies have been done in vitro, with animal studies and there are currently multiple human trials running. All report mitigation and relief from negative effects for a range of diseases:
Hydrogen applications can and will assist in this incomplete list of diseases:
You can google (with the quotes and plus signs) "your disease name" + "molecular hydrogen" + NIH for the latest information on any given disease.
Just do it. Goggle for your ailment and hydrogen and NIH
All these scientific reports indicate that Hydrogen can conclusively mitigate the bad effects of hundreds of diseases.

Here is a collection of websites with the same message. Hydrogen is important for your health.
It is profoundly documented that molecular hydrogen is really different to all other gas therapies such as Nitric oxide, Helium + Oxygen, Oxygen and Ozone. Hydrogen affects until now over 160 diseases and what is not covered so far has probably not been investigated yet.

There is no doubt that Hydrogen will be a central and integral part of the future of medicine.
