THE “HOW IT WORKS” OF Active H2
THE BENEFITS OF MOLECULAR HYDROGEN: Hydration, maintenance of proper levels of the electrolytes and good natural supplementation is always a concern of athletes who are serious about their results. Active H2™ is a key to sports performance and recovery. Active H2™ tablets are a groundbreaking new supplement for adding the benefits of high-dose Molecular Hydrogen to pure drinking water. As the tablet reacts, millions of tiny hydrogen bubbles infuse and saturate the water making it the most efficient hydration and hydrogen delivery system and very powerful sport supplement.
This is a unique new approach of supplementation with Molecular Hydrogen. Hydrogen is natural antioxidant, the smallest molecule in the universe (90 times smaller than vitamin C, even smaller than oxygen). It allows it to rapidly diffuse through the cell membrane and into the mitochondria where it can help eliminate the toxic free radicals.
THE “ENERGY CURRENCY” OF YOUR CELLS
ATP - ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATE: The energy currency of our trillions of cells is ATP. Virtually all the food we eat and all the oxygen we breathe is used to make these ATP molecules so that we can have energy. Athletes require a lot more of ATP per day! Most of the ATP is produced in our mitochondria, which are known as the powerhouse of the cell.
Human studies on athletes show that molecular hydrogen supplementation can decrease blood lactate (lactic acid) levels. Molecular hydrogen improves the energy production (ATP) of the mitochondria. The studies also show decreased fatigue and muscle damage, which substantiates the benefits and power of H2 for athletes and sports performance. There are even studies showing that hydrogen not only increases ATP production, but might also induce mitochondrial biogenesis (i.e. more energy producing mitochondria)! The science, studies and mechanisms help explain the truly miraculous benefits of Sports H2™ that are being reported daily.
WHAT IS MOLECULAR HYDROGEN?
HIGH CELLULAR BIOAVAILABILITY: It has been reported that 2-4% of all the oxygen we consume turns into toxic free radicals, which can damage the mitochondria. This is significant for athletes who breathe a lot more oxygen than sedentary individuals plus the percentage of free radicals likely increases during high exercise intensity. So free radicals are not only linked to diseases like cancer and neurological diseases, but also to fatigue, muscle damage, and slow recovery.
If the mitochondria become compromised due to the billions of free radicals, they will not be able to maintain the needed ATP production rate for exercise. This causes the body to uses glycolysis for its high ATP needs. When this occurs more lactate (lactic acid) is produced, which means fatigue will quickly set in.
When Active H2™ hydrogen tablets reacts with water trillions of hydrogen molecules are produced according the magnesium reaction with water (Mg + 2H2O →Mg(OH)2 + H2). This creates a hydrogen-rich alkaline water with low dissolved oxygen and extremely high level of dissolved molecular hydrogen. Active H2™ may be a possible acidity-lowering agent, which could be used to combat the effects of acid produced by exercise.
Approximately 3.6 billion years ago Molecular Hydrogen served as the original energy source for Primordial cellular life, fueling its metabolic processes and protecting it from the hostile environment of early Earth. Without it, life would not exist.
CONTINUING DISCOVERIES IN THE BENEFITS
MOLECULAR HYDROGEN: Health researchers worldwide are rediscovering these benefits in a big way. There are now more than 400 research papers, as well as animal and human studies, showing that Molecular Hydrogen can be a beneficial in nearly every facet of human physiology, especially at the cellular level.
Hydrogen is the first and most abundant element in the Universe! Two atoms combine to form hydrogen gas, H2, the smallest and most mobile molecule. This exclusive property gives it greater cellular bioavailability than any other nutrient or nutraceutical. Molecular Hydrogen can rapidly diffuse into cells, mitochondria and fluids throughout the body to deliver its unique and abundant benefits.
