Molecular hydrogen can protect against EMF by acting as an antioxidant that selectively scavenges hydroxyl radicals, which can cause damage to the human body, especially the central nervous system.
1 Exposure to EMF has been observed to cause increased free radical production in the cellular environment, leading to oxidative stress if the antioxidant defense system is unable to prevent the harmful effects of free radicals. 2 Molecular hydrogen can penetrate biological membranes and play a protective role in various conditions such as ischemia/reperfusion injury, organ transplantation, metabolic syndrome, inflammation, and acute irradiation disease. 1
Additionally, molecular hydrogen inhibits NOX activation and diffuses into cells, protecting the structure and lowering NOX levels when they’re excessively activated. Studies have also reported that molecular hydrogen could alleviate oxidative stress caused by EMF exposure. 1,3
Research continues to fully understand how molecular hydrogen can protect against EMF.
