Scientists has been learning the importance of the hydrogen atom in human health over the past 80 years.
In 1937 - Dr. Györgyi reports that Hydrogen is at the root of energy creation
The first scientist to talk about hydrogen was Dr. Szent-Györgyi who won the Nobel Prize for Vitamin C curing scurvy in 1937.
In his discovery he found that Hydrogen is the only fuel the body recognizes and describes the body’s natural process of digesting carbohydrates to provide hydrogen in the making of ATP or energy for the body.
Says Dr. Györgyi, “…the fact that our body really only knows one fuel, hydrogen. The foodstuff, carbohydrate, is essentially a packet of hydrogen, a hydrogen supplier, a hydrogen donor, and the main event during its combustion is the splitting off of hydrogen. So the combustion of hydrogen is the real energy-supplying reaction; To the elucidation of reaction (6), which seems so simple, I have devoted all my energy for the last fifteen years.” - Albert Szent-Györgyi, PhD
In 1965 — the Japan Ministry of Health reports that Hydrogen is necessary to balance and maintain digestive flora
The Nobel Prize was awarded to Dr. Peter Mitchell in 1978 for his theory of chemiosmosis.
According to this model of Dr. Peter Mitchell, Hydrogen is essential in the production of ATP in the mitochondria, the source of all energy in the cells, and therefore the body. This works through hydrogen dehydrogenase, a flavoprotein catalyzing the conversion of NAD+ to NADH by molecular hydrogen (H2); H2 + NAD+ → H+ + NADH. Molecular hydrogen, H2, is very prevalent in our hydrogen-rich water as shown by research certificate from the Shiga Institute. This is the seminal work in cellular energy production also helps explain the energy on demand available from hydrogen-rich water.
What is the bottom line of this structure and function claim? Clearly, ATP production can be supported by the increased presence of molecular hydrogen, and this explains the consistently positive reports we receive from athletes attesting to dramatic increases in energy reserves.
Come forward to today and now thanks to Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi, MD cardiac surgeon has found a way to bring hydrogen to the body that is inexpensive, portable and available to all.
