Background The redox imbalance between nitric oxide and superoxide generated in the endothelium is thought to play a pivotal role in the development of endothelial dysfunction. A third reactive oxygen species (ROS), H2O2, is known to have both beneficial and detrimental effects on the vasculature. Nonetheless, the influence of the hydroxyl radical, a byproduct of H2O2 decay, is unclear, and there is no direct evidence that the hydroxyl radical impairs endothelial function in conduit arteries… 
Molecular hydrogen suppresses superoxide generation in the mitochondrial complex I and reduced mitochondrial membrane potential.
TLDR
H2 may function as a rectifier of the electron flow affecting the mitochondrial membrane potential to suppress oxidative damage in mitochondria and could suppress superoxide generation in complex I in vitro and reduce membrane potential in  vivo.
Peripheral endothelial function can be improved by daily consumption of water containing over 7 ppm of dissolved hydrogen: A randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Daily consumption of high H2 water improved the endothelial function of the arteries or arterioles assessed by the PAT test, and the results suggest that the continuous consumption ofhigh H2Water contributes to improved cardiovascular health.
Hydrogen therapy: from mechanism to cerebral diseases
TLDR
Taking into account the blood-brain barrier, penetrability, possible side effects, and the molecular properties of H 2 within a single comprehensive review should contribute to advancing both clinical and non-clinical research and therapies.
Preventive and therapeutic application of molecular hydrogen in situations with excessive production of free radicals.
TLDR
There is a growing body of evidence based on the results of animal experiments and clinical observations that H(2) may represent an effective antioxidant for the prevention of oxidative stress-related diseases.
Therapeutic Efficacy of Molecular Hydrogen: A New Mechanistic Insight

TLDR
H2 is proposed to act as the rectifier of the mitochondrial electron flow in the disordered or pathological state when the accumulation of electrons leads to ROS production, specifically during the re-supply of O2 after hypoxia in the mitochondria.
Intravenous infusion of H2-saline suppresses oxidative stress and elevates antioxidant potential in Thoroughbred horses after racing exercise
TLDR
Intravenous H2-saline can significantly and specifically suppress oxidative stress induced after exhaustive racing in Thoroughbred horses, and the antioxidant capability was not affected throughout the study.
Molecular and Cellular Mechanisms Associated with Effects of Molecular Hydrogen in Cardiovascular and Central Nervous Systems
TLDR
Current knowledge about the role of molecular hydrogen in the modulation of autophagy and matrix metalloproteinases-mediated tissue remodeling, which are other responses to cellular stress, is summarized in this review.
The Acute Effect of Magnesium Supplementation on Endothelial Function: A Randomized Cross-Over Pilot Study
TLDR
Despite the non-significant interaction between treatment and time on FMD, the difference seen in the control group and the lack of change in the supplement group at 60 min post-drink suggests that Mg might attenuate the reduction in FMD post-prandially.
Hydrogen gas: from clinical medicine to an emerging ergogenic molecule for sports athletes 1.
TLDR
It is proposed that hydrogen may act as an exercise mimetic and redox adaptogen, potentiate the benefits from beneficial exercise, and reduce the harm from noxious exercise.
Pharmacokinetics of hydrogen after ingesting a hydrogen-rich solution: A study in pigs
TLDR
Drinking highly concentrated H2-rich solution within a short time is a good way to increase H2 concentration in portal blood and supply H2 to the liver.

Vasomotor Regulation of Coronary Microcirculation by Oxidative Stress: Role of Arginase
TLDR
The impact of vascular arginase on the development of vasomotor dysfunction associated with angiotensin II receptor activation, hypertension, ischemia-reperfusion, hypercholesterolemia, and inflammatory insults is discussed.
Superoxide-mediated inactivation of nitric oxide and peroxynitrite formation by tobacco smoke in vascular endothelium: studies in cultured cells and smokers.
TLDR
The data indicate that elements on tobacco smoke, most likely through redox cycling, divert (*)NO toward peroxynitrite by inducing O(2)(*-) production in vascular endothelial cells both in vitro and in vivo.
Reactive oxygen species cause endothelial dysfunction in chronic flow overload.
TLDR
The present data implicate NADPH oxidase-produced ROS and eNOS uncoupling in endothelial dysfunction at 1 wk of CFO and treatment with apocynin significantly reduced ROS production in the vessel wall, preserved endothelial function, and inhibited expressions of p22/p47phox and NOX2/NOX4.
Upregulation of Arginase by H2O2 Impairs Endothelium-Dependent Nitric Oxide–Mediated Dilation of Coronary Arterioles
TLDR
H2O2 specifically impairs endothelium-dependent NO-mediated dilation of coronary microvessels by reducing L-arginine availability through upregulation of arginase, which may contribute to the formation of hydroxyl radicals from H2O1.
Crucial role of nitric oxide synthases system in endothelium-dependent hyperpolarization in mice
TLDR
It is shown that genetic disruption of all three NOS isoforms (neuronal, inducible, and endothelial) abolishes EDHF responses in mice, providing the first evidence that EDHF-mediated responses are dependent on the NOSs system in mouse mesenteric arteries.
Nox4 as the Major Catalytic Component of an Endothelial NAD(P)H Oxidase
TLDR
Findings suggest that Nox4 may function as the major catalytic component of an endothelial NAD(P)H oxidase, a homologue of gp91phox/Nox2, which was abundantly expressed in endothelial cells.
Nitric oxide and peroxynitrite in health and disease.
TLDR
Current evidence indicates that most of the cytotoxicity attributed to NO is rather due to peroxynitrite, produced from the diffusion-controlled reaction between NO and another free radical, the superoxide anion, which is presented in detail in this review.
Effectiveness of Hydrogen Rich Water on Antioxidant Status of Subjects with Potential Metabolic Syndrome—An Open Label Pilot Study
TLDR
Drinking hydrogen rich water represents a potentially novel therapeutic and preventive strategy for metabolic syndrome and the portable magnesium stick was a safe, easy and effective method of delivering hydrogen richWater for daily consumption by participants in the study.
Age-Related Reduction of NO Availability and Oxidative Stress in Humans
TLDR
In normotensive individuals, an earlier primary dysfunction of the NO system and a later production of oxidative stress cause age-related reduction in endothelium-dependent vasodilation, which is similar but anticipated in hypertensive patients compared withnormotensive subjects.
Roles of oxidative stress and redox regulation in atherosclerosis.
TLDR
The results suggested that impaired serum redox potential is a marker of the development vascular dysfunction and estrogen has a possible role in the prevention of atherosclerosis.
