Arthritis is a debilitating and widespread disease.
In fact, it’s so common that over 50 million Americans have doctor-diagnosed cases of this uncomfortable and chronic condition.
This means one in every five people over the age of 18 has a form of arthritis.
But the real problem is this illness is spreading through the population rapidly.
It’s estimated that by the year 2030, there will be 67 million diagnosed cases of arthritis in the U.S. And this doesn’t include cases that will go undiagnosed or untreated.
Not to mention it’s the country’s No. 1 cause of disability – with just two types accounting for a total of 172 million missed worked days annually.1
Of the different types of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) can be especially complicated to treat, because it’s an autoimmune disorder.
Fortunately, a groundbreaking study has found a natural way to relieve these RA symptoms (without the health threats of prescription drugs). We will share this info in a moment.
Let’s talk about RA symptoms and medication dangers first…
In contrast to osteoarthritis that’s caused by wear-and-tear damage, rheumatoid arthritis causes your immune system to attack the tissues in your body. This attack can also affect the lining of your joints and cause painful swelling, joint deformity, and even bone erosion. 2
The inflammation caused by RA can even lead to damage in other parts of the body, which may lead to physical disabilities.
Medications for RA can also lead to immune suppression, colitis, and pneumonia. And as we have covered before, some of these complications can be deadly.
But as this study reveals, relief could be as quick and easy as drinking a glass of water.
It’s in the Water
Science is still unclear about the cause of RA, but since there is an excess of information about the intimate relationship between oxidative stress and inflammation, it makes sense that a powerful antioxidant could help alleviate the pain and discomfort of RA.
To test this, Japanese researchers studied the effects of water containing a high concentration of molecular hydrogen on oxidative stress and disease activity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
The study had 20 RA-diagnosed participants drink half a liter of high-concentration hydrogen water for four weeks. Next, they drank only hydrogen water, but at lower levels, for another four weeks. Lastly, the participants finished the study with four more weeks of high-concentration hydrogen water.
At the end of each four-week period, the participants were tested for blood indicators of RA and proteins that specify disease activity.
All 20 participants experienced improvement in blood markers. Sixteen of the 20 participants felt major relief of RA symptoms.
However, what was more incredible… nine of the participants experienced remission!
And while five of these nine weren’t able to produce their own antibodies, they still experienced a much-improved quality of life.
While there is still more research needed, the scientists conclude that hydrogenated water is a good choice for folks who want to combat RA symptoms naturally.
