How Is Hydrogen Used in the Body?

Water
One of the Major ways that Hydrogen is used in the body is
in water. Water is made up of two-thirds hydrogen atoms.
According to the Mayo Clinic, water is so important that it
makes up over 60 percent of your body. Because of
hydrogen, the cells are able to remain hydrated, toxins and
waste are able to be eliminated from the body, nutrients are
able to be transported to the cells that need them, your
joints are lubricated, and your body’s immune system is able
to send defensive cells to fight of infection-causing fungus,
bacteria and viruses.

Energy
Hydrogen also plays a crucial role in Energy production in
the body. For our bodies to function, they must have energy
in the form of adenosine triphosphate (APT) your body gains
energy through consuming foods rich in substance such as
carbohydrates. Once ingested, the body uses enzymes to
break down your food into more basic substance such as
glucose. These basic parts are then further broken down

through glycolysis and beta oxidation, leaving your body
with acety CoA is then broken down into hydrogen. Oxygen
and carbon. The hydrogen ions are transported to the
mitochondria of the cells, which then uses the hydrogen to
create ATP.

Aging
According to Dr. patrick Flanagan, Hydrogen may also be the
missing link in showing down the aging process The aging of
tissues in the body is believe to be caused by substance
called free radical in the body are stored supplies of
hydrogen According to Dr. Flanagan this hydrogen protects
us from free radical damage. Unfortunately, As we age, these
storages dry up. This leaves the tissue exposed to free
radical, which leads to the tissue damage
