Molecular hydrogen (H2) may attenuate oxidative stress, improve cellular function, and reduce chronic inflammation. Pre-clinical and clinical studies have shown promising effects of H2-rich water (HRW) on specific features of metabolic syndrome. Supplementation with high-concentration HRW significantly reduces blood cholesterol and glucose levels attenuate serum hemoglobin A1c, and improved biomarkers of inflammation and redox homeostasis. Furthermore, H2 tends to promote a mild reduction in body mass index and waist-to-hip ratio.
In conclusion, HRW might have promising effects as a therapeutic modality for attenuating risk factors of metabolic syndrome.
Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Metabolic syndrome is associated with several medical risk factors including dyslipidemia, hyperglycemia, and obesity, which has become a worldwide pandemic. The sequelae of this condition increase the risk of cardiovascular and neurological disease and increased mortality. Its pathophysiology is associated with redox dysregulation, excessive inflammation, and perturbation of cellular homeostasis. Having just one of these conditions doesn’t mean you have metabolic syndrome. But it does mean you have a greater risk of serious disease.
