Hydrogen Water, 2

The active hydrogen in HW functions as an antioxidant that can pass through the blood-brain barrier [BBB], although most antioxidant compounds cannot do this. BBB is a layer of tightly packed cells outside the brain that prevent substances in the blood from diffusing freely into the brain. Oxygen, glucose, white blood cells, nicotine, alcohol, etc., can pass through (Inflammation or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can damage the BBB, thereby increasing permeability). According to Lewis Thomas, MD, Sloan Kettering: The molecule of hydrogen water is small enough to penetrate into cells deeply. The utmost thing is hydrogen water can neutralize ROS, Reactive Oxygen Species, which are notorious for destroying normal cells or for distorting DNAs. (Oxygen free radicals contribute to the development of illness and ultimately are responsible for the aging process.)
