HYDROGEN – The Anti-Aging Miracle an Interview with Tyler LeBaron


I’m here in Tokyo with my friend and
someone I respect very much, Tyler, who is the CEO and the founder of the Molecular
Hydrogen Institute in Utah. And what’s so interesting is I first met Tyler when I
was there with Dr. Joe Mercola. And Dr. Mercola was obsessed with the work that
you’re doing and couldn’t wait to introduce you to so many of his friends
and different people. And I like to really focus on what Dr. Mercola does
because he leads the trend. I mean he is so passionate and so committed to
wherever sort of the new research is really showing us to be focused and you
developed your Molecular Hydrogen Institute many years ago. Can you tell us
a little bit about it? – Yeah, well first I got involved in hydrogen back in 2009. I was just reading
and studying and I came across an article published in 2007, in
Nature Medicine by Dr. Ohta, who you just interviewed. And I was like, “Wow, this is
really interesting!” So I looked at all the research, all the studies. There
wasn’t a lot at that time maybe you know, 20-30 articles, but it was very
interesting. And then in 2013, I had the opportunity to go to Nagoya. Yeah, here in
Japan and do an internship and research some of the molecular mechanisms of
hydrogen, see with my own eyes that hydrogen gas really is exerting changes
on a cellular level. And it was that time that I had the opportunity to meet
Professor Ohta. I went to his lab and it was so great! We got there and he
got some wine glasses and not wine, I don’t drink. But he poured hydrogen water
and we sat around talking about this hydrogen molecule as we drink hydrogen
water, together and enjoy such a wonderful conversation. And when I
returned back home in 2013, I thought you know, I saw some amazing things. I believe
in this research that this needs to be out to the public. This hydrogen is
really something that has the potential to help so many people. And I want to
educate people and at the time nobody knew anything about hydrogen gas being
beneficial or therapeutic. Only that it was explosive. So I
started a website at the time it was just a website called, “Molecular Hydrogen
Institute.” And I started educating people about the benefits of hydrogen. I put the
studies on there, I wrote some articles. I then, as things started going forward, I
started getting invited to go speak at conferences. You know, first in in Beijing,
had a biomedical hydrogen symposium there, and things just kind of started
escalating. And so now, I formed the organization as a science-based
nonprofit. We’re just focused on advancing the education, the research, and
awareness. So now I’m able to speak at various medical conferences throughout
the U.S., go throughout Asia and Europe, and speak at various conferences and
collaborate with some of the best and top minds in the field of molecular
hydrogen research. And I’m just very grateful to be part of this. It’s so exciting.
– I’m so grateful. And we all are for the work that you’re doing, the
pursuit that you personally have. I mean for the past nine years,
right? From from 2009, we’re at the end of- – Nearly 10 years now, right?
– Nearly 10 years you’ve you’ve dedicated your life to it. What are the most interesting, key
benefits you’ve seen really in the past six months around hydrogen that you
think will transform the way that people- our health in general. Like what are the top keys?
– Mmm, good question. I’d want to say that some of these new publications
coming out on hydrogen being good for us, things like dementia, cognitive
impairments. It’s very powerful. I mean there’s really no drugs that
have been shown to be effective for things like Alzheimer’s disease. And so
when we are seeing these clinical studies, not just animal studies which
were very impressive themselves, but actual human clinical studies showing
that hydrogen gas can not only slow down or prevent the decline in cognitive
impairments, but actually lead to improvements. To me, that- that’s amazing!
And similar with stroke cerebral infarction. This- what’s going on with the
post-cardiac arrest syndrome. You know, the Japanese government in 2016, back in
November, approved the inhalation of hydrogen gas in advanced medicine, so
they could do a major clinical trial with over 360 patients in
15-20 different hospitals, so they can determine the effects and
benefits of hydrogen gas for this post cardiac arrest syndrome. So I think this
is really setting major changes in the medical community. But then just for
people like you and me that are healthy, that want to live a better life, the
research is coming out on just exercise performance. Whether it be an improved
recovery and endurance and exercise capacity. These are small things but are
significant, especially for those who are really trying to get the cutting edge, right?
Get some more energy, get the another you know another bout of
exercise and to push themselves harder and to recover faster. And then also the
fact that hydrogen, just drinking hydrogen water. Everyone drinks water,
right? So you can just drink hydrogen water and in one of the studies with
healthy patients helped. Also, they’re not patients, healthy people, right? Healthy
subjects! They drank the water and they had improvements in mood and anxiety and
decreased stress, which to me is is so great! We published a study and
scientific reports showing that hydrogen could increase the resilience to acute
and chronic stress in mice. And we expose them to you know, forced
swimming and changing their- so they can’t sleep at all, and you know
changing their food, like a whole bunch of things to the cause the stress. And
those that drink hydrogen water, well they fared a lot better, had a lot
more resilience to the stress. And now again, we’re seeing this transfer into
these clinical studies with normal healthy people who are just exposed to
the stress of daily life, and they drink hydrogen water, they have lower
sympathetic nerve activation, so they’re more you know, because sympathetic is
like fight or flight, right? Just the whole time, and doing that all the time,
it’s really harmful on your body. So being more parasympathetic, more
relaxed, more calm. That’s so good for you and just drinking hydrogen water
can do that. So these are the things that really excite me, that can really benefit
people, not just those patients that are sick and need help, and preventing,
but just healthy people already, to let them live a
higher quality of life. You know, just it’s interesting. Professor
Soon from China, he’s kind of a pioneer in China. He kind of has this quote I’m
not shout, translates into English, but essentially, “We need oxygen to breathe. We
need oxygen to live, but we need hydrogen to live well.” And I think that really
sums up the benefits of hydrogen in many ways. – What are some of the foods? I mean
this is so exciting and so fascinating! What are some of the foods that we can
eat that will produce more hydrogen in our bodies?
– Well, listen to your Mother. So your Mother says eat your fruits and your vegetables, because
these contain fibers, these non-digestible carbohydrates. And when
they’re metabolized by our intestinal bacteria, that bacteria produces hydrogen
gas. And so research has shown that hydrogen gas indeed is therapeutic, has
beneficial effects. So it’s really good to eat those fibers, but it’s also
very curious. And it’s one of the enigmas and hydrogen research because when you
compare eating fibers and producing a lot of hydrogen gas that way, compared to
just drinking hydrogen water, which is actually a small amount of hydrogen
gas. When you compare the two, often simply drinking hydrogen water is more
effective than getting from the fibers. And I just was discussing this with Professor Ohta
and one of the reasons for this could be because we- hydrogen gas seems
to modulate signal transduction and gene expression. And so in order to do this, we
have to have this intermittent pulse exposure. So when you drink hydrogen
water, you have a high increase in the blood and then it goes down quickly.
Whereas well, from bacteria it kind of slowly goes up and stays there for a
while and slowly goes back down, so it doesn’t have the same effect on our
genes and on ourselves as does drinking hydrogen water. – So what about the the safety of it, right?
It seems so new though the research, as you mentioned, Dr. Ohta
has been in research for over 13 years. The research is there.
It’s really culminating. What about on the safety? And can children take it?
– Yeah, excellent question. So far there’s no reported adverse
effects from taking hydrogen even at high concentrations. And
scientifically, that’s somewhat makes us skeptical. Because if something has a
beneficial effect, then it should have a noxious effect, especially at high doses,
at high concentrations. We don’t really see that with hydrogen. Even at cell
culture at very high concentrations or animals or humans, we don’t see that and
the safety is really well established, even before Professor Ohta started his
research 13 years ago, because they’ve actually used deep hydrogen gas to
prevent decompression sickness in deep-sea diving incidents since the 1940s-
that literally hundreds of millions of times higher concentrations than what we
use for therapeutic uses. And as we mentioned, it’s produced by our bacteria.
So we’re always exposed to hydrogen gas. It’s very natural. It’s not some you know,
alien foreign substance or something. It’s very natural to our bodies, but
simply drinking it has these beneficial effects. And so far, we haven’t seen any
adverse effects. So as far as children and pregnant women, there’s no reason to
suggest for them not to have it and the animal studies suggest that they should
have it for sure. – I love to hear this! This is so exciting! It’s so cutting-edge,
so transformative. You and I are going to go out and explore Tokyo a little bit
and how hydrogen is used in the daily life, and I can’t wait to be doing that
with you! So Tyler, thank you very much for opening up my eyes and that of so
many other people to the power of molecular hydrogen.
– I appreciate that. Thanks for the opportunity.

  2. He’s handsome & genuine. He also has an accent….is he American?

    I wish I could get started with hydrogen. How do I begin….where Can I get it?

  3. Amazing research and benefits of taking in hydrogen gas wow love it! Would love to hear more about the advancements on this health regime Naomi and Tyler thank you 🙂

  4. Before the great flood, our atmosphere was much different than today, which some suggest was the reason why lifespans have so greatly diminished in length.

  5. Is this heavy hydrogen – deuterium? That would not be ideal as we would want deuterium depleted water for health.
