Shandong First Medical University: Hydrogen prevents thrombosis

Blood clots are known as “hidden killers” in human blood vessels. Once a thrombus is formed, it may cause “paralysis” of the blood transport system, causing a variety of thrombotic diseases, seriously endangering life and health.

Beware of thrombosis “killer”!

From head to toe, the parts of the human body that the blood flows through may be blocked by “thrombosis”. Blood clots clog in different places, causing different hazards:

• A blood clot in the brain can cause a “cerebral infarction”

• Blockage in the coronary arteries can lead to coronary heart disease and “myocardial infarction”

• A blood clot in the lungs is a “pulmonary embolism”

    Either way, it’s almost always fatal. It blocks the channels of blood vessels in various parts of the body like a plug, resulting in no blood supply to the related organs, which can seriously cause sudden death. Furthermore, blood clots can occur at any age and at any time.

Prevent “plug” before it happens!

In fact, the human body has many ingenious balances, such as:

blood clotting system, which produces blood clots;

The fibrinolytic system can remove the thrombus.

Bleeding and coagulation, thrombosis and thrombolysis, there is a delicate balance between these two systems. However, with the aging of blood vessels, damage to the vascular endothelium, and accumulation of garbage in the blood vessels, a large number of blood clots are formed, so the thrombolytic system of the human body cannot bear it. The balance of these two systems is broken, and people are prone to thrombotic diseases.

     Therefore, be sure to prevent “plug” before it happens.

Hydrogen may be antithrombotic!

Activation and aggregation of platelets are considered central roles in the process of atherothrombosis. Therefore, clinical antiplatelet therapy has been used as an important means for the prevention and treatment of the above-mentioned diseases. Since the current antiplatelet drugs have certain side effects, such as the easy promotion of bleeding diseases, people have been hoping to find new antiplatelet therapy. Since oxidative stress plays an important role in platelet activation and aggregation, people have been exploring the use of antioxidant means as a new antiplatelet therapy.

Japan National Defense Medical University: Hydrogen and hydrogen water have anticoagulant effects

This is a study carried out by a team from the Department of Neurosurgery at the National Defense Medical University in Japan and published in the journal Internal Medicine. They first extracted platelets from the blood of healthy people, mixed hydrogen saline and platelets, induced platelet activation and aggregation through collagen, and found that hydrogen saline could significantly reduce the proportion of platelet aggregation.

Subsequently, animal experiments were used to compare the effects of breathing hydrogen gas and intravenous injection of hydrogen saline, and collagen was used to induce platelet activation and aggregation.

The results show that hydrogen has inhibitory effects on platelet activation and aggregation in animals and humans.

Shandong First Medical University: Hydrogen prevents thrombosis

A research paper from the research group of Professor Zhao Xiaomin, Department of Pharmacy, Shandong First Medical University, found that hydrogen saline can prolong tail bleeding time in rats and mice, and reduce thrombus quality and tissue blood flow time. In vitro studies have found that it can inhibit platelet aggregation.

Key result graph, Hydrogen prolongs bleeding time

The results of the study show that hydrogen has an antithrombotic effect, which may be the antioxidant effect of hydrogen, and this effect leads to the inhibition of the platelet activation signaling pathway NO/cGMP/PKG/ERK.

     The well-known “three highs”, namely high blood pressure, high blood lipids, and high blood sugar, are important risk factors for thrombosis. In addition, lack of exercise, excessive obesity, poor living habits, and staying up late are also among the risk factors for arterial thrombosis. First, the blood vessels must be protected. Using hydrogen is an ideal means.
