5 Ways to Keep Your Heart Healthy – Black Girl Health Blog

Many of us don’t think about the health of our hearts until we’re older. But heart problems can affect people of all ages, including children. Some kids are born with heart problems, but others develop them because of an unhealthy lifestyle.

Today, nearly one in three American children and teens is overweight or obese. Childhood obesity is causing a slew of health problems among kids that weren’t seen before. The American Heart Association (AHA) reports that children who are overweight from ages 7 to 13 have a greater risk of developing heart disease as early as age 25.

What’s more, childhood obesity quadruples the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, further increasing the risk for heart disease. Smoking and physical inactivity also increase heart disease risk. These risk factors all have something in common. They are largely preventable.

Adopting heart-healthy habits early on can provide lifelong benefits. What steps can your kids take today to protect their heart health in the future?

Recently, molecular hydrogen has been investigated in preclinical and clinical studies on various diseases associated with oxidative and inflammatory stress such as radiation-induced heart disease, ischemia-reperfusion injury, myocardial and brain infarction, storage of the heart, heart transplantation, etc.

Hydrogen is primarily administered via inhalation, drinking hydrogen-rich water, or injection of hydrogen-rich saline. It favorably modulates signal transduction and gene expression resulting in suppression of proinflammatory cytokines, excess ROS production, and in the activation of the Nrf2 antioxidant transcription factor.

Hydrogen gas is the smallest molecule in our universe. Scientific studies have shown hydrogen gas and adequate hydration can support the availability of clean cellular energy which our body requires for the proper function of tissues and organs.

Within the body’s tissues and organs, Nano hydrogen is small enough that it can penetrate deep into human cells where our metabolism transforms the food we eat into cellular energy. At this cellular level, hydrogen gas and purified water provide essential metabolic functions that power both our mind and physical performance.

Protect Your Heart With Hydrogen Water

Cardioprotection includes all the mechanisms that contribute to the preservation of the cardiac tissue by reducing or preventing cardiac damage.² You can protect your heart by leading a healthy lifestyle, which can significantly lower the risk of getting CVD and decrease the chances of deterioration if you already have it. Medications and supplements can also help with protecting your heart, and here’s where hydrogen-rich water (HRW) makes its appearance. 

Molecular Hydrogen

Molecular hydrogen is the lightest gas and has long been used to prevent decompression sickness following deep-sea diving.³ In 2007, a first notable report about H2 treatment was published in the journal Nature Medicine, showing that application at clinically viable doses of H2 significantly reduced the levels of -OH in cultured cells and provided therapeutic neurological benefits. These results suggested that hydrogen may be potentially used as an antioxidant in vivo.

Oxidative stress is indeed a common denominator of several pathological processes, including cardiovascular diseases. It occurs as a result of an imbalance between reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the intrinsic antioxidant cellular defense mechanism, leading to impaired cellular and organ function.  

What makes molecular hydrogen promising for therapeutic applications is its favorable physicochemical properties. It is electrically neutral and even smaller than molecular oxygen. Therefore, it can easily penetrate cell membranes and diffuse into cellular organelles, such as the nucleus and mitochondria. Additionally, it is very mildly reactive, and it does not interfere with ROS involved in cell signaling. It has been demonstrated that, conveniently, hydrogen has no effect on physiology, temperature, blood pressure, pH, or pO2, and it has not been reported to be toxic at concentrations even higher than the clinically effective dosages. 

Hydrogen Rich Water and CVD Risk Factors

The administration of molecular hydrogen has been studied in several heart disease models and clinical trials. A September 2020 search on, the database containing all the clinical trials going on worldwide, showed 777 results. This substantial number highlights how molecular hydrogen is emerging more and more as a novel therapeutic intervention for a plethora of conditions, including cardiovascular diseases.

Building on promising results in animal models, a recently published study showed the results of a trial where men and women with metabolic syndrome underwent a 24-week administration of high-concentration hydrogen-rich water (> 5.5. millimoles of H2 per day). The high-concentration HRW used in this study was prepared via hydrogen-producing tablets from Drink HRW. Read our breakdown of the study.

Metabolic syndrome is characterized by various medical conditions, including visceral obesity, hyperglycemia, insulin resistance, hypertension, and dyslipidemia. Uncontrolled metabolic syndrome increases the risk of cardiovascular disease because the risk factors that are associated with metabolic syndrome play causative roles in the development of atherosclerosis, which further leads to coronary artery disease, stroke, and myocardial infarction. 

In this study, they found that a 24-week intervention with high-concentration HRW improved several biomarkers of cardiometabolic health in middle-aged men and women with metabolic syndrome. For example, it significantly reduced blood cholesterol and glucose levels and improved biomarkers of inflammation and redox homeostasis as compared to the placebo.

Furthermore, patients drinking HRW had a mild reduction in body mass index and waist-to-hip ratio. Although further investigation is needed to elucidate the precise biological mechanisms, these results suggest that long-term application with high-concentration hydrogen-rich water may be used as a therapeutic modality for reducing risk factors of metabolic syndrome and protecting your heart.

HRW and Radiation-Induced Heart Injury

One of the heart conditions where HRW can provide considerable benefits in terms of protecting your heart is radiation-induced heart injury. Radiation therapy is one of the primary methods used to treat and manage cancer.

However, radiotherapy is linked to severe side effects caused by increased ROS and inflammation. Cardiotoxic effects due to radiation exposure are collectively referred to as radiation-induced heart disease (RIHD), and, unfortunately, cardiovascular injury is the most common cause of adverse events among cancer survivors. Several studies showed that H2 reduces oxidative stress and inflammation by reducing the expression of several pro-inflammatory and stress-related mediators.

These cellular effects of molecular hydrogen are important in mediating cytoprotection. Many animal studies supported the use of molecular hydrogen in clinical practice, leading to successful clinical trials to limit the damages following radiotherapy and chemotherapy¹⁰ for liver cancer. A pilot trial is currently ongoing for patients receiving radiotherapy for glioma, using HRW produced with Drink HRW tablets,¹¹ and its results will pave the way for the widespread use of HRW to avoid radiation-induced injuries to several organs including the heart. 

HRW and Heart Transplant

For conditions such as heart failure, where the heart is no longer able to meet the body’s need in terms of blood supply, a cardiac transplant is still the only disease-modifying treatment. However, the most recent data from the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation database demonstrated that 10‐year survival after a cardiac transplant remains approximately 50% for a number of reasons. One of the most common problems is graft injury as a result of oxidation and tissue inflammation. Graft injury can lead to rejection and vasculopathy, accounting for 30% of deaths among patients who survive longer than 1 year post-transplant. 

In a rat model, drinking HRW has been shown to protect kidney allografts from chronic rejection. It does this by inhibiting inflammation.¹² Similarly, beneficial results in terms of reduced inflammation were also seen in vein grafts.¹³ 

Based on these encouraging results, another rat model was used to investigate the potential of HRW for preventing graft rejection and reducing dangerous side effects such as chronic inflammation post–cardiac transplant. ¹⁴ First, the results showed that oral intake of hydrogen‐rich water led to elevated blood hydrogen levels, confirming that the oral intake of hydrogen‐rich water is an efficient and safe mode of delivery for molecular hydrogen.

Then, the researchers saw that the survival of cardiac allografts was better in rats drinking HRW daily. Overall, HRW reduced oxidative injury and decreased the activation of pro-inflammatory molecules, which usually contribute to transplant pathology. 

This study demonstrated that the addition of HRW to post-transplant therapeutic regimes might protect the allografts and improve health for transplant recipients. One of the main advantages here is that, as already discussed, supplementation of drinking water with hydrogen is safe and cost-effective and could easily be added to the therapeutic regime without changing the lifestyle of the patients. 

Conclusions on Protecting Your Heart With Hydrogen Water

To conclude, it is known that excessive production of free radicals is a mediator of many cardiovascular disorders like ischemia/reperfusion injury and graft injury post–heart transplantation, as well as radiation-induced heart disease. It is, therefore, necessary to develop new approaches for an effective and safe reduction of excessive ROS levels. It has also been shown that HRW has a cardioprotective effect by limiting the formation of the atherosclerotic plaque, and it could be used to modify CVD risk factors in individuals with metabolic syndrome. 

Molecular hydrogen can be administered in several ways. HRW products can either be ready-to-drink products in a bottle or a can or on-demand products, including reactive tablets and machines to create HRW. Hydrogen inhalation is another common approach, as is injection of hydrogen-rich saline. 

Although further research is needed to elucidate the mechanisms of action of molecular hydrogen, these promising results, combined with its ease of administration, pave the way for its widespread use in heart protection in the clinic.¹⁵

What You Need To Know About Hydrogen Water

Hydrogen water is simply water infused with hydrogen gases. Hydrogen gas acts as an anti-inflammatory agent and has antioxidant activity. These are the features which make it good for you.

Prevention Is the Best Medicine.

HNEX™ was developed by a group of world-renowned European scientists with a patented technology that has been scientifically tested and shown to signal the activation of genetic pathways which can lead to positive impacts to all areas of your health.

HNEX™ utilizes Silver Nano Particles as a base to attach a matrix of separate Hydrogen and Oxygen atoms. This delivers Oxygen to the cells and Hydrogen as a gas to the body’s immune systems. HNEX is a Direct Molecular Hydro & Oxygen Distribution Complex.

Highly potent and effective, this Nano Silver anchor delivery method is Antiviral, Antifungal and Antibacterial throughout its transportational action of vital Oxygen to cells and Hydrogen throughout the body.

• Improve immune system health
• Modulate hormone balance to support vitality and wellness
• Help maintain a healthy inflammatory response
• Improve gut health and digestive enzyme production
• Help maintain cardiovascular health and support arterial elasticity

HNEX™ is the first supplement on the market that contains active hydro-oxygen Nano structured molecules, providing powerful cellular messengers that help protect, rejuvenate and restore cells.

Cell signaling in your body plays a key role in regulating gene expression. We are not talking eye color here — your genes do much more than dictate physical characteristics. Genes give life-sustaining instructions to cells, and cells carry out those instructions to keep you alive and healthy. As we age, cell communication breaks down, the signal weakens, and gene expression can be disrupted. Regulating gene activity with hydro-oxygen molecules keeps cellular
communication strong.

Hydrogen gas is the smallest molecule in our universe. Scientific studies have shown hydrogen gas and adequate hydration can support the availability of clean cellular energy which our body requires for the proper function of tissues and organs. Within the body’s tissues and organs, Nano hydrogen is small enough that it can penetrate deep into human cells where our metabolism transforms the food we eat into cellular energy. At this cellular level, hydrogen gas and purified water provide essential metabolic functions that power both our mind and physical performance.

The human body naturally receives hydrogen gas from the microbial flora that reside within each of us. These symbiotic microbes produce hydrogen gas as they help our bodies obtain nutrients from the food we eat. The microbial-produced hydrogen gas is then absorbed into our bloodstream where its biological benefits are carried throughout our body until we exhale this gas as we breathe. HNEX™ is an efficient way to directly deliver hydrogen gas into your body.

Without doubt, the best Oxygenating products out there! I have tried Apex water and hydrogen water, I have tried several products of this variety. HNEX has the best effect for me. I can feel the energy right away and I have no side effects as I have had with hydrogen water in the past. I really like the results I have seen. My daily exercise seems much easier. I can feel effects right away with every dose. excellent product!

Many of us are unintentionally filling our body with chemicals, toxins and the wrong foods which lower our pH balance. This acidic pH results in oxygen deprivation at the cellular level. This is the beginning of degenerative disease.

Normal cells create energy via aerobic (with oxygen) respiration. Alkaline cells are able to absorb sufficient quantities of oxygen to support aerobic respiration. However, when cells become more acidic, less oxygen is absorbed, and the cells begin to ferment glucose in order to survive. This concept is essential to understand, because cancer cells thrive in an acidic, anaerobic environment and don’t do very well in an aerobic, alkaline environment.


Disease Preventative Care

Recent studies have suggested hydrogen water could be a novel antioxidant, selectively reducing levels of toxic reactive-oxygen species. Research has shown antioxidants can help prevent oxidative stress. This type of stress comes from both normal body functions and external forces, including sun exposure and industrial chemicals. Oxidative stress may lead to cancer and other diseases.

These preliminary studies also suggest hydrogen water may be helpful to reduce inflammatory responses of the body, supporting overall health and supporting reduced risk heart disease and other life-threatening diseases.

Metabolic syndrome includes high blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol levels. The syndrome increases a person’s risk for heart attack and stroke.

Aside from a large waist circumference, most of the disorders associated with metabolic syndrome have no symptoms.

Product Usage

How much HNEX™ should I drink daily?

For those with chronic health challenges – Morning – 1/2 oz. (1 Tbsp) concentrate – hold in mouth for as long as possible (up to 30 minutes), swallow. It is not like oil pulling, where you spit out the oil after holding in your mouth. You swallow the HNEX™, as any bacteria has been eliminated by HNEX™, and it continues working once you swallow. Repeat daily.

Daytime – add 1 oz. (2 Tbsp) concentrate to about 20 oz. of filtered water (not distilled water – it is acidic, not juice, not lemon water, etc.) Drink this mixture throughout the day, along with your intake of normal water. Repeat daily.

Evening – 1/2 oz. (1 Tbsp) concentrate – hold in mouth for as long as possible (up to 30 minutes), swallow. Repeat daily.

For maintenance: Morning – 1/2 oz. (1 TBSP) of HNEX™ concentrate, hold in the mouth for as long as possible (up to 30 minutes), swallow. (not distilled water – it is acidic, not juice, not lemon water, etc.) Drink this mixture throughout the day, along with your intake of normal water. Repeat daily.

NOTE: We recommend taking HNEX™ concentrate at least 30 minutes before or after eating any food, because if you have any fresh fruits or veggies that you haven’t cleaned all the bacteria from, HNEX™ will go to work on that bacteria first before entering the blood stream. This is not a requirement, but rather a suggestion.

Other Uses

Fighting a flu or cold as a cancer patient | Sarah Cannon

HNEX™ may help minimize symptoms and reduce the duration of colds, flus and other viruses.

In an acute scenario like this, the protocol is different than the standard protocol of 1 or 2 ounces per day. The protocol is to sip the HNEX™ concentrate all day long. Do not dilute the concentrate. You can drink an entire liter in a day or two. This does not replace the fluids needed to support the system’s detoxification process, so continue to also drink as much clean, filtered water as you can.

Additionally, consider the action to nebulize the HNEX™ directly into the lungs and spraying the HNEX™ concentrate directly into the sinus pathways using a sinus spray bottle.

HNEX™ concentrate can be applied directly to the skin to help with burns, cuts, scraps, rashes, and wound recovery. Simply spray the HNEX™ concentrate directly on the affected area, allowing it to dry naturally. Do this a minimum of 4x per day.

It may also be beneficial to place a HNEX™ concentrate saturated cloth or paper towel, sized appropriately, and keep on the affected area. Keep moist by spraying concentrate on the cloth, or even wrap with plastic wrap to retain moisture.

HNEX™ can be used with a nebulizer, for direct delivery into the lungs.

Spraying HNEX™ in the nose and eyes can be helpful to hydrate these areas, as can adding a drop in the ear canal.

HNEX™ may also be used with an enema or douche bag.
