Beneficial effects of molecular hydrogen (H2) in various experimental models of human diseases and in many clinical studies was documented. H2 can be administered by various ways, as a gas inhalation, drinking of H2-enriched water, or taking a H2-dissolved bath as well as in saline infusions. As antioxidant selectively scavenges hydroxyl and peroxynitrite radicals, decreases oxidative stress. However, theH2 effect on antioxidant–coenzyme Q information is lacking. This pilot study found protective effects of H2 on coenzyme Q9 in plasma, myocardial tissues and mitochondria of rats. Our results can contribute to the explanation of a new beneficial mechanism of H2 on a part of antioxidant protection in organism.
