Histopathological influence of alkaline ionized water on myocardial muscle of mother rats

Year Published: 1999

We have reported that a marked necrosis and subsequent fibrosis of myocardium occurred among male rats 15 weeks old given alkaline ionized water (AKW) during gestation and suckling periods, and after weaning. In this study, it was examined whether similar lesions would occur in mother rats which were given AKW from day zero of gestation to day 20 of lactation. The myocardial lesion in the mother ...

Influences of alkaline ionized water on milk yield, body weight of offspring and perinatal dam in ...

Year Published: 1999

The authors previously reported that male offspring of mothers rats given alkaline ionized water (AKW) showed a significantly higher body weight by day 14 after birth than did offspring of mother rats given tap water (TPW); furthermore, marked myocardial necrosis and fibrosis were observed particularly in the former male offspring at the age of 15 weeks. In the present experiment we looked for ...

Effect of electrolyzed water intake on lifespan of autoimmune disease prone mice

Year Published: 1998

Recent studies on electrolyzed water indicate that anode or acidic water is most effective as disinfectants; whereas, reduced or alkaline water processed through cathode is used as safe drinking water. The present drinking water study was undertaken in two strains of autoimmune disease prone mice to establish the spontaneous disease process and longevity. Weanling MRL/lpr and NZBxNZW [B/W] F1 ...

Electrolyzed Reduced Water Which Can Scavenge Active Oxygen Species Supresses Cell Growth and ...

Year Published: 1998

Active oxygen species are considered to cause extensive oxidative damage to biological macromolecules, which bring about a variety of diseases as well as aging. Reduced water produced near cathode during electrolysis of water exhibits high pH, low dissolved oxygen, extremely high dissolvedmolecular hydrogen, and extremely negative redox potential values. Recently we found that strongly ...

Degradation of Myocardiac Myosin and Creatine Kinase in Rats Given Alkaline Ionized Water

Year Published: 1998

Recently, the authors have shown that marked necrosis and fibrosis of myocardium were observed in rats given alkaline ionized water (AKW). To clarify the cause of myocardial lesions, the activities of myosin ATPase, actomyosin ATPase and creatine kinase (CK) in myocardium of rats given AKW at 15 weeks-old were compared with those in myocardium of rats given tap water (TPW). Furthermore, sodium ...

Electrolyzed-reduced water scavenges active oxygen species and protects DNA from oxidative damage

Year Published: 1997

Active oxygen species or free radicals are considered to cause extensive oxidative damage to biological macromolecules, which brings about a variety of diseases as well as aging. The ideal scavenger for active oxygen should be 'active hydrogen'. 'Active hydrogen' can be produced in reduced water near the cathode during electrolysis of water. Reduced water exhibits high pH, low dissolved oxygen ...

Successful Treatment of Mediastinitis after Cardiovascular Surgery Using Electrolyzed Strong Acid ...

Year Published: 1997

Dilute povidone-iodine solution has been widely used as an irrigant for the treatment of mediastinitis. However, its use is not without adverse effects and often cause? poor growth of pinulation tissues. To avoid the problems seen with the use of povidone-iodine solution, we applied electrolyzed strong acid aqueous solution (ESAAS) to mediastinal irrigation in 4 patients (2 infants and 2 adults) ...

Trial of Electrolyzed Strong Acid Aqueous Solution Lavage in the Treatment of Peritonitis and ...

Year Published: 1997

Electrolyzed strong acid aqueous solution is acidic water that contains active oxygen and active chlorine and possesses a redox potential. We performed peritoneal and abscess lavages with an electrolyzed strong acid aqueous solution to treat 7 patients with peritonitis and intraperitoneal abscesses, who were seen in our department between December 1994 and April 1995. The underlying disease was ...

Decompression comparison of helium and hydrogen in rats

Year Published: 1997

The hypothesis that there are differences in decompression risk between He and H2 was examined in 1,607 unanesthetized male albino rats subjected to dives on 2% O2-balance He or 2% O2-balance H2 (depths < or = 50 ATA, bottom times < or = 60 min). The animals were decompressed to 10.8 ATA with profiles varying from rapid to slow, with up to four decompression stops of up to 60 min each. Maximum ...

Treatment of Infectious Skin Defects or Ulcers with Electrolyzed Strong Acid Aqueous Solution

Year Published: 1997

A chronic ulcer with an infection such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is hard to heal. Plastic and reconstructive surgeons often encounter such chronic ulcers that are resistant to surgical or various conservative treatments. We applied conservative treatment using an electrolyzed strong acid aqueous solution and obtained satisfactory results. The lesion was washed with the ...

INFLUENCE OF ALKALINE IONIZED WATER ON RAT ERYTHROCYTE HEXOKINASE ACTIVITY AND MYOCARDIUM

Year Published: 1997

Alkaline ionized water (AKW) produced by the electrolysis of tap water (TPW) was given to pregnant rats throughout gestation. AKW was subsequently given to infants as a test group until 15 weeks old to determine changes in body and organ weights, erythrocyte hexokinase (HK) activity and histological preparations of myocardiac muscle. The results were compared with those for rats given TPW. Body ...

ECG changes during the experimental human dive HYDRA 10 (71 atm/7,200 kPa)

Year Published: 1995

Electrocardiogram (ECG) analysis was performed in three human divers during a 71 atm (7,200 kPa) saturation dive (COMEX HYDRA 10 experiment). The inhaled gas mixture was slightly hyperoxic; its composition was basically helium and oxygen. Hydrogen was introduced during compression and its partial pressure reached 20 atm. ECG changes were the same in the three divers. Marked bradycardia rapidly ...

Effect of alkaline ionized water on reproduction in gestational and lactational rats

Year Published: 1995

Alkaline ionized water (AKW) produced by electrolysis was given to gestational and lactational rats, and its effect on dams, growth of fetuses and offsprings were investigated. The results showed that the intake of food and water in dams increased significantly when AKW was given from the latter half of the gestation period and from the former half of the lactation period. Body weight of the ...

Psychophysiological reactions in humans during an open sea dive to 500 m with a ...

Year Published: 1994

Six commercial divers were investigated for neurological and psychosensorimotor responses during an open sea dive to 500 m with a hydrogen-helium-oxygen mixture containing 49% hydrogen. Results showed only moderate neurological symptoms of high-pressure nervous syndrome, whereas the narcotic effect of hydrogen was detectable, as investigated by psychosensorimotor tests. Nevertheless, the divers ...

Production, metabolism, and excretion of hydrogen in the large intestine

Year Published: 1992

Hydrogen is produced during fermentation in the large intestine and may be excreted in breath and flatus or further metabolized by the flora. However, there is little information about total H2 excretion from different substrates or the extent to which it is metabolized in the colon. We have therefore measured total H2 and methane excretion in 10 healthy subjects using a whole body calorimeter. ...

Hyperbaric hydrogen therapy: A possible treatment for cancer

Year Published: 1975

Hairless albino mice with squamous cell carcinoma were exposed to a mixture of 2.5 percent oxygen and 97.5 percent hydrogen at a total pressure of 8 atmospheres for periods up to 2 weeks in order to see if a free radical decay catalyzer, such as hydrogen, would cause a regression of the skin tumors. Marked aggression of the tumors was found, leading to the possibility that hyperbaric hydrogen ...

Production and Excretion of Hydrogen Gas in Man

Year Published: 1969

Technics employing intestinal infusions of gas were used to study H2 production in the human intestine. The volume of H2 in the bowel of 10 normal subjects varied from 0.06 to 29 ml. H2 production, which averaged 0.24 ml per minute in the fasting state, sharply increased after intestinal instillation of lactose to a mean peak rate of 1.6 ml per minute. Ingestion of food also increased H2 ...
