This open source Dixon et al. Medical Gas Research 2013, 3:10 article abstract shows studies on molecular hydrogen have evolved tremendously from the beginnings and have continued to progress throughout the years. Hydrogen is extremely uniqueness has the capability to act at the cellular level. Hydrogen can cross the blood-brain barrier, and enter the mitochondria, and even has the ability to
translocate to the nucleus under certain conditions. Once in these ideal locations of the cell, hydrogen exerts antioxidant, anti-apoptotic, anti-inflammatory, and cytoprotective properties beneficial to the cell. Hydrogen is commonly applied as a gas, water, saline, and other mediums. There are also few side effects involving hydrogen, thus making hydrogen a perfect medical gas candidate for the convention of novel therapeutic strategies against cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, cancer, metabolic, and respiratory diseases and disorders. Hydrogen appears to be faultless at times, future studies are needed to investigate. This review article seeks to delve and comprehensively analyze the research and experiments that alludes to molecular hydrogen being a novel therapeutic treatment that medicine desperately needs.
