Hydrogen (H2) rich water supplementation: muscle fatigue, metabolic syndrome and cholesterol studies

Among the human studies published is the impact of hydrogen-rich waters positive impact on fat and sugar metabolism in type two diabetics. A significant decrease in low density lipoproteins cholesterol as well as a trend towards lowered oxidized LDL, free fatty acids and an increase in a positive protein we make called adiponectin which regulates glucose level as well as fatty acid breakdown and hydrogen also increased plasma levels of one of our most powerful antioxidants called superoxide dismutase. Administration of hydrogen water for 8 weeks increased SOD (super-oxide dismutase) by 40 percent. It is understood that hydrogen rich water is potentially novel approach for metabolic syndrome. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19083400

Hydrogen water and muscle fatigue during exercise in elite athletes. It was found that hydrogen water prevented an elevation of blood lactate during heavy exercise. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22520831
