Dietary water affects human skin hydration and biomechanics

Dietary water affects human skin hydration and biomechanics

It is generally assumed that dietary water might be beneficial for the health, especially in dermatological (age preventing) terms. The present study was designed to quantify the impact of dietary water on major indicators of skin physiology.
Enhancing the Human Reactivity by Using the Negative Air Ions Generators

Enhancing the Human Reactivity by Using the Negative Air Ions Generators

The paper represents a synthesis of the investigations made at the University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Cluj-Napoca, Romania, on the effects of the treatment with ionised air during the physical exercise in man or upon certain symptoms and neuro-psychic processes in girls with premenstrual syndrome.
Clinical effects of far-infrared therapy in patients with allergic rhinitis

Clinical effects of far-infrared therapy in patients with allergic rhinitis

Allergic rhinitis (AR) is the sixth most common chronic illness worldwide, which has a significant impact on patients' quality of life. The actual cost of AR is staggering, approximately $5.6 billion being spent annually in direct medical costs and other indirect costs. Therefore, it should be taken seriously upon its evaluation and treatment.
Clinical effects of hydrogen administration

Clinical effects of hydrogen administration

Here we review the literature on the effects of molecular hydrogen (H2) on normal human subjects and patients with a variety of diagnoses, such as metabolic, rheumatic, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative and other diseases, infections and physical and radiation damage as well as effects on aging and exercise.
Supplementation of hydrogen-rich water improves lipid and glucose metabolism in patients with type 2 diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance

Supplementation of hydrogen-rich water improves lipid and glucose metabolism in patients with type 2 diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance

Oxidative stress is recognized widely as being associated with various disorders including diabetes, hypertension, and atherosclerosis. It is well established that hydrogen has a reducing action. We therefore investigated the effects of hydrogen-rich water intake on lipid and glucose metabolism in patients with either type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) or impaired glucose tolerance (IGT).
Effects of hydrogen water on metabolic syndrome

Effects of hydrogen water on metabolic syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is characterized by cardiometabolic risk factors that include obesity, insulin resistance, hypertension and dyslipidemia. Oxidative stress is known to play a major role in the pathogenesis of metabolic syndrome.
REAL-TIME SENSORS FOR INDOOR AIR MONITORING

REAL-TIME SENSORS FOR INDOOR AIR MONITORING

Household air pollution is ranked the 9th largest Global Burden of Disease risk (Forouzanfar et al., The Lancet 2015). People, particularly urban dwellers, typically spend over 90% of their daily time indoors, where levels of air pollution often surpass those of outdoor environments.
EFFECTS OF VITAMIN C ON SKIN

EFFECTS OF VITAMIN C ON SKIN

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) plays an important role in maintaining skin health and can promote the differentiation of keratinocytes and decrease melanin synthesis, leading to antioxidant protection against UV-induced photodamage.
HYDROGEN WATER PROTECTS AGAINST ORAL BACTERIA

HYDROGEN WATER PROTECTS AGAINST ORAL BACTERIA

There are estimated to be about 700 species of bacteria in the oral cavity. Based on epidemiological investigations, some of these strains have been proposed as the pathogens responsible for oral diseases such as dental caries, gingivitis and periodontitis.
HYDROGEN MAY PREVENT HEARING LOSS

HYDROGEN MAY PREVENT HEARING LOSS

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) play a role in the degeneration of auditory hair cells because of aging, noise trauma, or ototoxic drugs. Hydrogenation is a fundamental reduction/de-oxidation reaction in living organisms.
