After a night of partying and excessive alcohol consumption, many of us wake up with a hangover - an unpleasant condition that includes headaches, nausea, fatigue and dehydration. But did you know that molecular hydrogen may be the key to a faster recovery?

How does hydrogen help with hangovers?
Molecular hydrogen is known for its powerful antioxidant properties, which can help neutralize harmful free radicals produced during alcohol metabolism. This process can alleviate inflammation and oxidative stress that contribute to hangover symptoms.

A new analysis of the global impact of alcohol on injury and disease concludes that even moderate drinking is hazardous to health. The study, which was recently published in The Lancet, found that alcohol was the seventh-largest risk factor for premature mortality in 2016, contributing to 2.8 million deaths worldwide-2.2% of all female deaths and 6.8% of all male deaths. Compared to abstainers, people who drank one glass of alcohol a day had a 0.5% higher risk of developing any of 23 alcohol-related health problems, ranging from car accidents to breast cancer or tuberculosis. This risk increased with each additional drink per day, with people who drank five drinks per day having a 37% higher risk of health problems compared to abstainers.

Studies confirm the effectiveness of hydrogen
A study published in 2013 found that hydrogen inhalation can alleviate oxidative stress caused by alcohol, contributing to faster recovery from hangovers. Research conducted on healthy adults has shown that hydrogen water not only reduces hangover symptoms, but also aids in the breakdown of alcohol in the body (IFIS Collections) .

Another study published in the journal R Discovery confirmed that hydrogen water can significantly improve the condition after excessive alcohol consumption. This research showed that molecular hydrogen has strong antioxidant properties that protect cells from alcohol-induced damage and speed up the body's recovery from alcohol (RDiscovery).

Practical tips for using hydrogen
If you're going to a party, consider drinking hydrogen water during and after drinking alcohol. This will help you stay hydrated and reduce the negative effects of alcohol. In the morning after a night of alcohol, have a can of H2 Premium Hydrogen Water, top it up with H2 Forte and give yourself a rest. Your body will thank you.
