What is electrolyzed reduced water?
BMC Proceedings (2011) 5 (Suppl 8):P18 Abstract of paper published in November 2011
Anti-diabetes effect of water containing hydrogen molecule and Pt nanoparticles
Electrochemically reduced water (ERW) contains a lot of hydrogen molecule (H2) and scavenges reactive oxygen species (ROS) to protect DNA from oxidative damage. ERW also contains small amounts of Pt nanoparticles (NPs) and elongates the lifespan of C. elegans. Pt NPs are newly recognized multi-functional ROS scavengers. ERW exhibits anti-diabetes effects in vitro and in vivo. We proposed mineral nanoparticle active hydrogen reduced water hypothesis to explain the activation mechanism of H2 to hydrogen atom (H). Recently, H2 has been reported to scavenge ROS and suppress a variety of oxidative stress-related diseases, however, the action mechanism of H2 has not been clarified thoroughly. Here, we examined anti-diabetes effects of H2 and Pt NPs. H2 stimulated glucose uptake into L6 cells. Pt NPs catalyzed the activation of H2 to hydrogen atom (H) to scavenge DPPH radical in vitro. The combined use of molecular hydrogen and Pt NPs resulted in extremely stimulated glucose uptake into L6 cells, suggesting that H produced from H2 by catalyst action of Pt NPs regulated glucose uptake signal transduction. As oppose to the paper by Ohsawa et al., H2 of 25 to 75% concentration in the mixed gas significantly scavenged intracellular H2O2 in rat fibroblast L6 cells and induced the gene expression of antioxidative enzymes such as CAT, GPx and HO-1 via activation of Nrf2. H2, Pt NPs and their combination significantly suppressed the levels of fasting blood glucose and improved the impaired sugar tolerance abilities of obese insulin-resistant type 2 diabetic KK-Ay mice. H2, Pt NPs, and their combined use resulted in activation of glucose uptake signal transduction pathways and stimulation of glucose uptake into L6 myotubes. In the groups of H2, Pt NPs and their combined use groups, blood sugar levels and impaired sugar tolerance of type 2 diabetes model mouse (KK-Ay) were significantly improved, suggesting that H2, Pt NPs and H are redox regulation factors in animal cells.
