We originally wrote this blog in 2014, and back then it wasn't so much a blog as an introduction followed by a link to an open-label pilot study called 'Effectiveness of Hydrogen Rich Water on Antioxidant Status of Subjects with Potential Metabolic Syndrome'.

In the years since the publication of that particular paper, hydrogen-rich water has gone overground, becoming a hot topic in the wellness world not only as "a novel therapeutic and preventive strategy for metabolic syndrome", as suggested in that 2010 paper, but a possible therapeutic aid against all manner of health challenges.

In this article, we intend to summarise just some of the literature which has been published on this topic, and suggest ways in which the mighty antioxidant might be of value.
