GLOSSARY for Live Healthier Better and Longer with Hydrogen (H2)
Allergies– are your body’s reaction to a normally harmless substance. Allergies happen when your immune cells react to certain substances that enter your body. Some people are sensitive to bee venom, pollen, pet dander, or foods.
Antibodies- are protective proteins produced by your immune system. Antibodies latch onto and kill foreign invaders with uncanny accuracies, like heat-seeking missiles.
Antioxidant- can be an evil chemical that harms your body like toxins. So an antioxidant can turn the bad guy into a good guy. Antioxidants are the molecules that’s work by donating an electron to balance the free radical; it is then quenched or made harmless.
Apoptosis- is the process of programmed cell death. H2 decreases the number of immune cells dying.
ATP- is a molecule that delivers energy to fuel your cells, tissues, organs, systems, and entire body.
Autoimmune- are happened when immune cells attack the body by mistake. Sometimes, immune system is misdirected or turned off once the danger passes. Allergic reactions and autoimmune problems can arise.
Autophagy- it is the body over-activity of cleaning out damaged cells to give rise to newer, healthier cells. It’s a self-preservation process to help your body get back to smooth, optimal functioning—like pushing a reset button.
B-cells- are part of the immune system. The job of the B-cell is to make and shoot protein bullets called antibodies.

Brain- is a magnificent and complex organ of body. It has over 100,000,000 brain cells (neurons) and controls your ability to operate many thoughts and instructions to your body,
Cancer- is abnormal cells that spread uncontrollably. They can infiltrate and destroy normal body tissues and organs. Cancer can lead to a host of symptoms that are organ and tissue-related.
Cell senescence- is a process by which a cell ages and permanently stops dividing but does not die. When cells age, their mitochondria weaken, divide more slowly, and DNA damage happens.
Cell- the basic unit of life. It is the smallest unit that can live independently and makes up all tissues and organs within the body.
Chronic inflammation- is a slow, long-term inflammation. Chronic inflammation is caused by long-term stimulation of the immune system. Chronic inflammation is a major symptom of many disorders, such as arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, chronic pain, diabetes, etc.
Chronological age- the age of a person as measured from birth to a given date. Your chronological age will always increase as years go by.
COVID-19- is called Corona Virus Disease 2019. H2 may reduce destructive cytokine storm and lung injury caused by SARS-CoV-2 during COVID-19.
Cytokines- are small proteins that are crucial in controlling the growth and activity of other immune system cells and blood cells. H2 reduces inflammation by cellular stress by lowering the harm to cells from inflammatory substances made by immune cells (cytokines).
Cytoplasm- inner liquid of the cell. It is mostly water. Besides this it also contains organic and inorganic molecules and organelles.
Diabetes- metabolic disease characterized by elevated levels of blood glucose (or blood sugar). Too much sugar leads to fatigue, irritability, and weight gain, slow healing of sores, blurred vision, frequent urination, infections, and abnormal blood values.
DNA– is a molecule in the nucleus has the genetic material that is our heredity genetic blueprint.
Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) – organelle in the cell’s interior cytoplasm it’s a collection of tubes that make, package, and transport proteins, fats, and other molecules.
Free radicals- are unstable atoms with missing electrons. When the free radicals are missing electrons, they become unbalanced, angry, mean, and destructive; they want to steal electrons from healthy balanced atoms.
Glutathione- is an antioxidant. The most potent antioxidant produced by your body. H2 increases glutathione.
Glutathione – is a super antioxidant. It plays a vital role in reducing oxidative stress. It corrals and stabilizes renegade molecules we get exposed to. Glutathione is the master detoxifier.
Golgi body- organelle in the cell’s interior cytoplasm. The Golgi body is like Federal Express centers that package and delivers needed molecules to be sent elsewhere.
H2Blue– is a test kit to know the amount of dissolved H2 in water from drinks in cans, sticks, pouches, tablets you drop in water or machines that add H2 as a gas in water.
Heart- The heart is a fist-sized organ that pumps blood throughout your body. It contains vital heart muscle cells that work day and night throughout your life.
Helper Cells- a type of immune cell. The Helper Cells communicate with T- and the B-cells. They help B-cells make more antibodies, and the B-cells stockpile the antibody ammunition for use in future attacks.
Histamines- are a chemical created in the body that is released by white blood cells into the bloodstream when the immune system is defending against a potential allergen.
Homeostasis– any process that living things use to actively maintain fairly stable conditions necessary for survival. Everything in the life of your cells translates to your life and must be in the right balance. H2 can help maintain that balance (homeostasis).
Immune system– the organs and processes of the body that provide resistance to infection and toxins. The immune system can distinguish between normal healthy and unhealthy cells or things foreign to the body, such as viruses, harmful bacteria, parasites, fungi, etc.
Inflammation- is a localized physical condition in which part of the body becomes reddened, swollen, hot, and often painful. Inflammation is when your body sends out first-responder immune cells to attack viruses, bacteria, toxic chemicals, or during wound healing.
Kidneys– are organs of the renal system that help pass waste as urine. They also filter and clean blood. They maintain fluid balance, create hormones that help produce red blood cells, promote bone growth, and regulate blood pressure.
Leukocytes- are also called white blood cells. Leukocytes are part of the body’s immune system which travel through spaces within the walls of the blood vessels.
Lung illnesses- also called lung diseases. Lung illnesses are caused by viruses, bacteria, molds, polluted air, chemicals, tobacco, and irritants that cause allergies.
Lung- an organ in the body. Lungs are the centers for breathing. They provide oxygen for your cells and organs to stay alive and healthy.
Mitochondria- are organelles floating in the cytoplasm. They are the batteries of the cell also called the powerhouses of cells. They process food using a little oxygen and create energy by making a power-packed molecule called ATP.
Molecular hydrogen- is a colorless and odorless gas that is the universe’s lightest and most abundant element. It has many health benefits.
Natural Killers- are the lymphocytes cells in the same family as T and B cells. NK cells are specialized, green beret-like forces that survey all body areas.
Neurons- also called neurons or nerve cells are the fundamental units of the brain and nervous system. Brain has over 100,000,000 brain cells (neurons).
Nrf- an emerging regulator of cellular resistance to oxidants. It helps your cells make their own antioxidants.
Nucleus- an organelle in the cell. Also, called the heart of the cell. The nucleus instructs what the cells do next. It has the genetic material that is our heredity genetic blueprint; the DNA.
Organelles– tiny floating bodies in the Cytoplasm. One organelle is the nucleus or heart of the cell.
Organ- is a self-contained group of tissues that performs a specific function in the body. Tissues make up organs.
Phagocyte- also called the eating cell. A type of immune cell that can surround and kill microorganisms, ingest foreign material, and remove dead cells.
Sepsis- is a body’s extreme response to an infection. It can rapidly lead to tissue damage, organ failure, and death.
SIRT 1- anti-aging molecule. This youth molecule is essential in keeping cells young by extending their life span. It also prolongs the life of cells by aiding and increasing the number of mitochondria and countering inflammation.
Skin- is the largest organ in the body. It’s an intricate cell network that is the first barrier against infectious agents, UV light, chemicals, and mechanical injuries.
Systems- are groups of organs and tissues that work together to perform essential jobs for the body. Organs make up systems.
Target cells- are white blood cells that migrate to infected cells to combat the invaders.
T-cells- are part of the immune system. T-cells have two key strategies. They directly kill infected cells or resort to chemical warfare, releasing substances (cytokines) that help stop the infection.
Telomeres- are the protective endcaps on the chromosomes in the nucleus. When cells age, telomeres become shortened and incapable of holding in the precious DNA within chromosomes.
Tissues- are groups of cells that have a similar structure and act together to perform a specific function. Cells make up tissues.
T-suppresser cells- a type of immune cell. The T-suppresser cells, act as military police. They regulate and stop the B-cell’s production of antibodies, so the B’s make the necessary amount.
Virus- is a small infectious microbe. They gain control of the machinery of our cells, tissues, and organs, and life-threatening conditions could happen.
