What Happens When You Inhale Hydrogen
Hydrogen itself is not toxic, and it is harmless for people to inhale a small amount of hydrogen, and it has certain benefits, such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and apoptosis-inhibiting effects.
Hydrogen is a kind of reductive, colorless and odorless small molecule gas with biological activity. Recent studies have shown that hydrogen molecules have certain protective effects on human tissues, organs and cells. Hydrogen is beneficial to the human body when inhaled in small amounts. Hydrogen has certain antioxidant functions because it can remove peroxynitrite and hydroxyl groups in the human body; hydrogen can also protect cell tissues by inhibiting inflammatory reactions caused by oxidative stress; hydrogen can also regulate pro-apoptosis-related factors to inhibit apoptosis.
The health benefits of hydrogen
Over the past few years, hydrogen has become a topic of much interest and is believed to have many health benefits. Hydrogen is a very small molecule that can easily cross cell membranes and has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
1. Improves cardiovascular health
Hydrogen can help lower high blood pressure, improve atherosclerosis, and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease such as myocardial infarction. Some studies have shown that people who consume hydrogen-containing water daily can significantly lower their total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol ("bad" cholesterol) levels.
2. Reduces inflammation
Hydrogen has also been shown to reduce chronic inflammation, which can lead to various diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and asthma. Studies have shown that drinking hydrogen-containing water or inhaling hydrogen can reduce inflammatory responses and decrease oxidative stress.
3. Improve athletic performance
Hydrogen is also thought to improve athletic performance. Some studies have shown that people who drink hydrogen-containing water can reduce muscle soreness and fatigue, thus helping them to exercise better.
Finally, hydrogen is also considered to be an anti-aging substance. Studies have shown that hydrogen can reduce cellular damage by
