~Antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-fatigue, anti-diabetic effects, etc.~Published a review paper on the various health benefits of electrolyzed hydrogen water
Published in “Antioxidants”, a specialized magazine on antioxidants ……
A joint research group between Nippon Trim and RIKEN has published a review paper based on the joint research results on electrolyzed hydrogen water (*1) and the knowledge of hydrogen research to date in the Antioxidants book published by publisher MDPI (head office: Switzerland). ” magazine and was published on March 2, 2024. (*1) Electrolyzed hydrogen water is weakly alkaline drinking water that contains molecular hydrogen and is obtained by purifying tap water with a water conditioner and electrolyzing it.
This review article describes the various health benefits of electrolyzed hydrogen water and its presumed mechanism of action. Main points
(1) Various health benefits of electrolyzed hydrogen water
The various benefits include antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-fatigue, anti-cell death, anti-diabetic, and anti-tumor effects, along with an overview of the research targets and effects.

(2) Estimated mechanism of action
The presumed mechanism of action is that hydrogen molecules (H2) in electrolyzed hydrogen water react with hydroxyl radicals and peroxynitrite to eliminate the radicals. As a result, intracellular antioxidant capacity increases, and conversely, reactive oxygen species and reactive nitrogen species decrease, resulting in a decrease in oxidative stress. The inflammatory cytokines that interact with it are also reduced, suppressing inflammation. Ultimately, it is said to reduce the risk of arthritis, malignant tumors, diabetes, and inflammatory bowel disease.
In conclusion, this review paper summarizes the various benefits of electrolyzed hydrogen water, based on the results of many vigorous animal experiments and a small number of human clinical studies. In addition, it is expected that further intensive clinical research will be carried out in humans with detailed conditions such as different hydrogen concentrations, water supply timing, and amount, which may result in a treatment method that is superior to current treatments.

・OH: Hydroxyl radical (It has the highest reactivity and oxidizing power among active oxygen species, and is said to cause
lifestyle-related diseases, cancer, aging, etc.)
ONOO-: Peroxynitrite (produced by the reaction of superoxide and nitrogen oxide within cells. It is thought to damage biomolecules such as proteins, enzymes, lipids, and nucleic acids, leading to cell death)
ROS: Reactive oxygen species (general term for highly reactive compounds containing oxygen atoms such as ・OH, ・O2-superoxide, H2O2 hydrogen peroxide, and 1O2 singlet oxygen)
RNS: Reactive nitrogen species (general term for highly reactive nitrogen oxides such as ONOO- and nitric oxide)
Inflammatory mediator: An endogenous substance that initiates or maintains an inflammatory response in the body. These include histamine and prostaglandins.
Inflammatory cytokines: Substances that are involved as causative factors that cause various inflammatory symptoms in vivo. These include interleukin-1, interleukin-6, and TNF-α.
Anti-inflammatory cytokine: Cytokine that has the function of suppressing inflammatory symptoms. These include interleukin-10 and TGF-β.
Radical: An atom, molecule, or ion with an unpaired electron. These include hydroxyl radicals and peroxynitrite.

About Nippon Trim
Nippon Trim Co., Ltd. operates a business centered on the manufacture and sale of electrolytic hydrogen water conditioners, which are medical devices. Our company is the first in the world to focus on the functions of water, and through over 25 years of
industry-government-academia joint research, we are pursuing the functions and usefulness of “water that supports health (R), electrolyzed hydrogen water.”
Currently, the use of electrolyzed hydrogen water is not limited to drinking, but is being applied to various fields such as
next-generation new treatment methods for hemodialysis and crop cultivation.
In addition, the Nippon Trim Group aims to become a global medical company, with group companies operating the largest private cord blood bank in Japan (Stem Cell Research Institute, TSE Growth Market: 7096). Company name/Nippon Trim Co., Ltd. (TSE Prime Market: 6788)
