Hydrogen inhalation, also known as hydrogen therapy or hydrogen gas therapy, is an emerging field in the realm of medical and wellness practices that harnesses the potential health benefits of molecular hydrogen (H2) gas. Hydrogen, the most abundant element in the universe, has garnered significant attention in recent years due to its intriguing properties and potential to promote various aspects of well-being, and, its ability to mitigate a range of health conditions. This therapeutic approach involves inhaling hydrogen gas, typically through inhalation devices or hydrogen-rich air, as a means of delivering this molecular gas to the body's tissues and cells. The concept of hydrogen therapy has its roots in the growing body of scientific research exploring the potential therapeutic effects of hydrogen gas on human health. This research initially gained traction in Japan, where it was discovered that inhaling hydrogen gas could have antioxidative and anti-inflammatory properties. Since then, interest in hydrogen therapy has expanded globally, with numerous studies and clinical trials investigating its potential applications. Hydrogen gas (H2) is unique in that it is the smallest and lightest molecule in the universe. This small size enables it to easily penetrate cell membranes and reach the mitochondria, the powerhouse of cells, where it may exert its potential benefits. Hydrogen is believed to act primarily as a selective antioxidant, meaning it can help neutralize harmful reactive oxygen species (ROS) without interfering with essential cellular signalling molecules.
