We all try our hardest to stay healthy and at peak condition but sometimes life gets in the way. Many factors can contribute to degenerative processes in our body. One of the main components is oxidative stress. You’re probably asking yourself, what is oxidative stress and how does it affect me? The bad news is, we all have oxidative stress. There are many factors that cause oxidative stress: lack of sleep, overexerting yourself, diet, pollution, and work stress just to name a few. You’ve probably experienced at least one from that list. Oxidative stress contributes to some potentially serious conditions like cancer, mental depreciation, chronic inflammation and aging inside and outside the body. Luckily, scientists have been researching oxidative stress and its effects on the body.
Some of the most promising studies involve supplementing with molecular hydrogen (H2). Molecular hydrogen refers to hydrogen gas, i.e. two hydrogen atoms working together to help neutralize free radicals. Again, you may be asking yourself, what are free radicals and why do I have to worry about them? Free radicals are at the root of oxidative stress. The formation of free radicals is completely normal and in some cases can actually have positive effects on the body. However, at high concentration levels, they can be harmful, potentially wreaking havoc on your cells, including DNA, proteins and cell membranes. Since free radicals are missing an electron, they scour your body trying to combine with healthy cells to steal an electron. The process sets off a chain reaction that can damage healthy cells and weaken your immune system.
How does H2 help combat oxidative stress? Well, it’s one of the most powerful antioxidants out there and antioxidants help neutralize free radicals. Free radicals are substances missing an electron, so in order to stabilize themselves, they scour your body, stealing an electron from healthy cells to complete themselves. This electron exchange damages your healthy cells and causes oxidation. H2 (two hydrogen atoms) carries two electrons, meaning it can give one of its electrons to free radicals - effectively neutralizing them while helping to protect your healthy cells. Pretty amazing stuff, and scientists think so too! That’s why scientists have conducted nearly 600 studies involving the use of H2 and its therapeutic properties.
We at KOR are excited about molecular hydrogen because we care about being at our best and we want to help you achieve the same thing. That’s why we created the KOR+ Hydration System. The KOR+ will provide you with abundant H2, effectively helping you to fight off free radicals and oxidative stress. When you sip from the KOR+ bottle, the +capsule not only pH balances your water up to two points, but also has rare earth minerals that produce H2 gas, all on demand!
