Hydrogen water can ameliorate aspirin-induced gastric injury and is dose dependent. This is because hydrogen water can directly interact with target tissue and concentration of blood hydrogen can be affected by hepatic glycogen so as to suppress dose-effect.
Molecular hydrogen is the smallest molecule known in nature, and it was regarded by the scientific community as the inert gas without biological effects. In 2007, Nature Medicine published a paper confirming that hydrogen inhalation can protect cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury. As of now, nearly 1200 relevant papers have been published internationally confirming the biological effects of hydrogen, and involving 63 kinds of important human diseases.
