What if there were one simple and natural thing you could do that, in addition to significantly boosting your athletic performance and shortening your recovery time between workouts, could dramatically improve your long-term health as well? A new scientific breakthrough emphatically answers that question with a resounding YES! In fact, elite athletes – from NFL and NBA stars, to college football players on the nation’s top teams, to well-known fitness professionals are currently experiencing tremendous and comprehensive performance benefits due to this new technology. Read on to find out about how molecular hydrogen (H2) is an absolutely groundbreaking discovery for sports and fitness in addition to total wellness optimization.

In the world of fitness and performance, there is a not-so-quiet revolution going on. Fitness supplements have typically been loaded with chemicals that, while potentially effective for short-term gains, may come at a tremendous cost to one’s long-term health. However, as more and more fitness addicts start to embrace a holistic, health-oriented lifestyle, a new wave of natural products are hitting the market designed to flood the body with molecules that neutralize “oxidative stress,” the primary source of chronic inflammation along with many limitations athletes find themselves combatting – among them fatigue, micro-injuries, burnout, and soreness.

Molecular hydrogen is at the forefront of this revolution, and although you may not have heard much about it yet, H2 is already an absolute phenomenon in Asia and is growing rapidly in popularity in the United States. 

What is H2?

Molecular hydrogen is a gas consisting of molecules of two bonded hydrogen atoms. One of the building blocks of life, the hydrogen atom contains only one proton and on electron, making H2 the smallest and lightest molecule on earth.

Referred to by many as “the real fountain of youth,” the most current and credible bodies of research (over 850 peer-reviewed studies) have deemed molecular hydrogen to be a “selective” antioxidant and powerful cell-signaling molecule. At low concentrations (typically infused in water), H2 has repeatedly been shown to exhibit tremendous therapeutic health and performance benefits, and most importantly, has absolutely no negative side effects. 

Molecular hydrogen works in 3 main ways:

H2 acts as a selective antioxidant. 

That means H2 scavenges only the most toxic and damaging free radicals (sources of inflammation, DNA damage, fatigue, and chronic disease) while avoiding those free radicals which are essential to the body. Thus, H2 effectively works to reduce excessive oxidative stress ONLY under conditions leading to the destruction and damage of our cells. Additionally, as the smallest molecule in the universe, H2 can easily penetrate any cell membrane, including brain cells, neutralizing certain intracellular free radicals that other antioxidants are unable to reach.​

H2 naturally boosts the immune system. 

For example, H2 activates the NRF2 pathway, the body’s own self-defense system against free radicals, but only when there is an assault (such as a toxin or an injury). In turn, by modulating the expression of antioxidant proteins, H2 naturally boosts the body’s immune system, consequently preventing the onset of numerous diseases and conditions. H2 also has the capacity to reduce the formation of free radicals by down-regulating the NADPH oxidase system when necessary (a system responsible for generating the reactive oxygen species (ROS)).

H2 has beneficial metabolic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cell death properties. 

H2 has been shown to successfully regulate the expression of over 200 biomolecules, including over 1,000 variations of gene expression. For example, H2 has been shown to down-regulate the expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which are involved with promoting systemic inflammation.

So what are some of the specific performance benefits of H2? Let’s focus on two specific benefits.

Improved Muscular Endurance

Before we dig into how molecular hydrogen can powerfully augment performance, we need to first establish some clarity about how muscles get fatigued. For many decades, “lactic acid” has been blamed for the burning sensation and fatigue during intense exercise. If we could only somehow reduce lactic acid, the muscles wouldn’t tire as easily. However, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. In reality, the body does not actually create lactic acid but rather a combination of lactate and hydrogen ions (H+), which happen to be acidic. Lactate is actually a very powerful fuel synthesized through certain processes inside our body. Here’s what really happens from beginning to end, in as simplest terms as possible:  

In order for us to do anything, our cells need to somehow produce something called ATP, the “energy currency” used by the entire body, including our muscles. Most of the time this process is “aerobic,” meaning our cells use oxygen to convert nutrients to ATP. However, when the energy (ATP) demands of the body are greater than the ability of our cells to regenerate aerobically, our cells utilize a process called glycolysis. 

Essentially our muscles are able to quickly convert glucose (sugar) into pyruvate, which can then be synthesized into ATP. The problem is that this process leaves behind another harmful byproduct – hydrogen ions (H+). An accumulation of hydrogen ions will cause “acidosis,” aka a lowered pH level, which leads to the burning sensation we feel during exercise. 
 
Where does lactate come into the equation? If too much pyruvate is created during intense exercise to the point that the mitochondria cannot convert it quickly enough back to ATP, excess pyruvate will then take some hydrogen ions and convert itself to lactate. This means lactate is actually created through removal of hydrogen ions so without lactate, we would feel the burning sensation along with muscular fatigue FASTER!  

What’s more, lactate is quite useful for our muscles, as they can actually convert a good amount of excess lactate to ATP inside the mitochondria while the rest leaks through the blood. This means that if our mitochondria are functioning more effectively, more lactate can be used as energy. Lactate leaked through the blood can be shuttled into other muscles, the heart and brain for energy, or it can be converted back to sugar by the liver. Confused yet? I’m almost there, so stick with me.  

 
Now that we have an understanding that acidosis (from hydrogen ions) is true culprit when it comes to the burning sensation and muscle fatigue, how can molecular hydrogen benefit athletes? In a study conducted with soccer players in 2012, Molecular hydrogen was been shown to prevent metabolic acidosis, protect the mitochondria while helping ATP formation inside the body and convert excess lactate back to ATP, leaving less lactate inside the blood

The simplest way of saying all this is that H2 may be able to significantly help delay muscle fatigue, allowing you to push harder, go faster, and run longer! 

Rapid Recovery

Optimizing your recovery is the holy grail of fitness, and H2 might just be the most powerful tool for recovery ever discovered. 

Because of it’s profound effects reducing excessive oxidative damage and inflammation, H2 can help you to get back into the gym or onto the field more quickly.  This may also help you prevent and reduce the severity of micro injuries, overtraining, and even help improve recovery from more significant sports injuries.

  18. This article is so informative and to correct the long standing misinformation regarding lactate acid is so refreshing. When we are better informed, we have an opportunity to make the best choice for our health.

  19. My family has been using H2 water for about a year and I’ve noticed some nice benefits with my pets – it even seemed to clear an eye infection in my parrot.

  20. I’ve been drinking the H2 water for over a year and have seen benefits with my pets. It helped clear an eye infection in my parrot and both my dogs and birds prefer the H2 water.

  21. Love learning the reasoning behind why my family and I feel so good when we drink Trusii H2. I started drinking it for my carpel tunnel and menopause symptoms. The anti-inflammatory affects greatly reduce my carpel tunnel pain and I have noticed over the past few months I have less and less of the end of menopause – hot flashes, night sweats, etc. I actually didn’t eve realize the symptoms have been subsiding until I start reeducating my self about Trusii H2

  22. I lift weights 2-3 times per week and have noticed a significant difference in my endurance since drinking water infused with H2.

  23. What a fantastic article! I will share these with the athletes using our biohacking machines and now drinking Trusii water 🙂

  24. I think this H2 water definitely improves athletic performance and recovery. I noticed a difference the first time I ever took tablets. And the machine is even more potent!

  25. I enjoyed reading the article. It’s explains a lot about why I’m feeling my health improve because I’m always drinking trusii water.

  26. Saying it’s the best athletic performance supplement evermight be an exaggeration, but the research is certainly promising so far!

  27. The science is super interesting and exciting! The affects of hydrogen-rich water for decreasing inflammation shouldn’t be ignored!

  28. Amazing to hear the breakdown on what Trusii can do for athletes. Being an athlete myself, recovery time is huge for me. I’m happy to have Trusii in my life!

  29. Trusii molecular hydrogen water is my everyday routine to perform my best. It has decreased my coffee intake because the hydrogen water provides so much energy.

  30. Not only is Trusii h2 water important for recovery but it prevents soft tissue injury. One of my greatest Benefits my lack of soft tissue injuries since drinking this water regularly. Prior I was often in physical therapy and thought soft tissue strains /tears were just part of the life of a fitness professional. Now I know better.

  31. Without being plagued by soft tissue injury I was able to improve my physical performance and all my fitness activities whether it be ballet class, weight training, yoga or sculpting I highly recommend the Trusii h2water

  32. After consistently drinking H2 water I have noticed small but incremental improvements in my overall health. Migraines and headaches are lowest they have been in years and my energy feels more consistent.

  33. Have just starting drinking felt thirstier right away, like my body couldn’t get enough of it! I was probably quite dehydrated chronically and didn’t even know it other than feeling sluggish all the time. After a few days, started feeling more energy.Looking forward to continued positive effects.

  34. Trusii water has helped me with my recovery process and has helped me progress my workouts in and improve my health overall! Great product!

  35. Trusii water is my go to! I am an extremely active individual and rely on being on the ball at all times to fuel my performance for my workouts. I drink Trusii water every day for better recovery, less soreness, increased cardio (time to exhaustion), and awesome skin

  36. My current state of health is not the greatest, but Trusii H2 water has been giving me a greater quality of life. Drinking a full 500mL combined with a sauna session is able to pull me out of pretty bad state.

  37. This is such an informative article! I’m getting back into working out and I’m really excited to see how H2 water helps my recovery and endurance.

  38. My interest was sparked in Trusii to see if it would affect my chronic cystic acne. In addition to it saving my skin, it also has given me clean burning energy, more brain function/better mood, and great recovery and endurance in workouts! I would and do recommend it to anyone who wants to take their health to the next level!

  39. While this article goes into the science, I find that I just feel better with the water. I don’t know what part of the science is working for me, but my gauge is that feeling. And with very little risk to trying it out, I am SO GLAD I tested it. I used a whole bottle of tablets before I investigated how to get my own machine. Now I am glad my family and I get to have the machine in the house as an easy go-to throughout the day.

  40. My Deep sleep has tripled! I wake up refreshed more and more everyday! From 30 minutes a night to 90 minutes on average. I feel amazing!

  41. I really surprised and happy that I don’t experience leg cramping, shin splints, or back pain when I power walk from 5K up to 15Ks on the weekends in the Spring and Fall of the year. I did a half marathon 13.1 miles and I was tight and sore for 24 hours. I was amazed. I thought that I would be out of work for a week. No time lost!

  42. After starting with trusii and having been drinking it close to 2 months now, I have to say, my energy levels have never been better. And this is honestly someone who had to drag himself out of bed every day and never felt fully rested. I’m genuinely excited to see how this is going to continue to help me both in my private and business life!

  43. I am not a peak performer but I do perform! I’ll be 60 in 6 weeks and I climb mountains, workout, and biohack. I am also a cancer survivor and for me, it’s ALL ABOUT THE WATER! and I love my hydrogenated molecular water. My muscles never get that fatigued feeling and I’m sleeping great which is when our bodies heal!

  44. Trusii has kept me active. I workout with weights 4 days a week and run basketball 2 days a week. Trusii has kept my 40 year old joints moving. Thanks to trusii, my recovery time is so much faster and my energy levels are higher. Loving feeling strong and fast!

  45. The last 30 days with the Trusii H2 system has not had any significate improvement. However, with all the issues that have come up my being a little better instead of in the negative is a big deal. So If I had not had the setbacks and financial stress I had I would probably be much higher numbers than I was this month.

  46. Very informative and concise explanation on science behind molecular hydrogen. Exciting possibilities for enhancing health.

  47. So simple yet so impactful! Loving the benefits of H2 from better sleep to improved focus, energy and reduced inflammation!

  48. I’m so skeptical of supplements because the market is basically unregulated. But have no fear with Trusii! This is pure and natural and everything you’d want from a pre or post-workout supplement (and more). I’m talking more energy, quicker recovery, clear skin, better sleep, and so so much more. There is nothing but potential for healing on so many levels. Get yourself some if you haven’t felt this magic for yourself!

  49. I finally understand how H2 water protects the mitochondria while helping ATP formation inside the body. This is the pathway I was looking for. Mitochondrial health is a game-changer. Great article and insights. Thanks!

  50. I think trusii water is great for athletic performance and in general improvement in overall health. I drink it everyday. And I run everyday with my energetic soon to be 2 Pit/Boxer mix.
