SPONSOR OFFER To get the most out of any therapy it is crucial to address the foundations of health.  Molecular Hydrogen addresses  these foundations through its ability to help to manage reactive oxygen species (ROS), inflammation and improve metabolic balance.  I drink molecular hydrogen water every morning before anything else and have my clients do the same.  Anecdotally we have seen improvements in blood sugar control, pain from arthritis and even cognitive function in a Parkinson’s patient.  Ongoing research is demonstrating the many ways that molecular hydrogen can support human health.
