Summary of effects
- Nervous system regulation
Molecular Hydrogen can activate the NRF2 pathway which:
- regulates the cell modulating effects of over 200 cytoprotective (cell protecting) genes.
- regulates phase ii enzymes involving mitochondrial protection, detoxification, antioxidation, anti-inflammatory, and anti-obesity/metabolic pathways.
- activates the antioxidant response element (ARE) pathway, which leads to the production of various cytoprotective antioxidants & proteins like glutathione, catalase, superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase, heme-1 oxygenase, etc.
