Sneezing, nasal congestion, itchy eyes and skin, rash... Sounds familiar?
All those symptoms point that someone could have an Allergy. But what is an Allergy? Allergy is an aberrant response of immune system to usually harmless substances in our surroundings such as (e.g. grass, weed, tree pollen, molds or animal dander). According to CDC more than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies each year.
When a person is exposed to an allergen (a substance that causes an allergic reaction) by inhaling it, swallowing it, or getting it on their skin, a course of events create the allergic reaction:
After first time exposure to an allergen, the body prepares itself to fight back next time that allergen comes calling, by attaching Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies to the mast cells. Mast cells play an important protective role, and they are known as regulators of immune system. They originate in bone marrow, but they are found predominantly in lungs, linings of the nose, skin, and intestinal tract. When the allergen binds to the antibody it causes the mast cell to degranulate or rupture. Ruptured or degranulated cell then releases histamines and fatty acids which give us all those unpleasant symptoms.
Molecular Hydrogen attenuates allergies by its capacity to increase cell signalling ability, and decrease inflammatory and oxidant reactions. Group of scientist from Japan discovered that molecular hydrogen prevents the degranulation of mast cells in rats, which prevents histamine from being released into the body. Also molecular hydrogen inhibits signaling molecule(s) in the loop. These effects have been ascribed to exclusive removal of (bad) hydroxyl radical. In the immediate-type allergic reaction, hydrogen exerts its beneficial effect not by its radical scavenging activity, but also, by modulating a specific signaling pathway.
Scientist suggests that, drinking hydrogen rich water may be effective against a wide range of allergic diseases such as bronchial asthma, rhinitis and conjunctivitis in humans.
