H2ForLife is provides a convenient method for obtaining dissolved molecular hydrogen in great tasting Blue Ridge Mountain spring water. No chlorine or fluoride has ever been in our water so H2forLife tastes just like the filtered pure mountain spring water it's made from!
What you need to know about FREE RADICALS and ANTIOXIDANTS
Free radicals are produced when your body breaks down food, or by environmental exposures like tobacco smoke or radiation. A free radical is a molecule that is missing an electron. Since electrons are always supposed to come in pairs, free radicals strip electrons away from other molecules. This process is called oxidation.
Reactive oxygen species (often abbreviated ROS) are free radicals that contain oxygen. While some ROS are necessary to the body in very small amounts, dangerous hydroxyl radicals (OH) cause damage to cells.
Hydroxyl radicals are the most reactive and dangerous type of ROS. They are cytotoxic, meaning toxic to cells. The body does not have any known system to detoxify hydroxyl radicals, so scavenging and removing them is an important function of antioxidants.
Free Radicals and ROS cause oxidation by removing electrons from other molecules during chemical reactions in your body. Oxidation reactions are a normal part of cell function, but excessive oxidation can cause damage to cells, called oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress is believed to contribute to the aging process, and is involved in the development of many human diseases including cancer, cardiovascular and neurological diseases, and inflammatory disorders.1
Antioxidants protect your cells from oxidative stress and inflammation by removing free radicals and ROS.
Hydrogen works as an antioxidant by selectively attacking hydroxyl radicals while leaving beneficial ROS to do their work in the body.2 It can be inhaled or injected into the body, but drinking hydrogen rich water is just as effective, as well as easy and safe.
