Eighteen healthy, trained subjects in a randomized, double-blind, crossover design received H2-rich calcium powder (HCP) (1500 mg/day, containing 2.544 μg/day of H2) or H2-depleted placebo (1500 mg/day) for three consecutive days. They performed cycling incremental exercise starting at 20-watt work rate, increasing by 20 watts/2 min until exhaustion. Breath-by-breath pulmonary venti- .. lation (VE) and CO2 output (VCO2) were measured and muscle deoxygenation (deoxy[Hb + Mb]) was determined via time-resolved near-infrared spectroscopy in the vastus lateralis (VL) and rectus femoris (RF).

The. VE was significantly lower in HCP versus placebo, but HCP did not affect the gas exchange status of VCO2 or oxygen uptake (V. O2). HCP increased absolute values of deoxy[Hb + Mb] at the RF but not VL. Thus, HCP-induced hypoventilation would lead to lower pH and secondarily impaired balance between O2 delivery and utilization in the local RF during exercise, suggesting that HCP supplementation, which increases the at-rest antioxidant potential, affects the lower ventilation and pH status during incremental exercise. HPC induced a significantly lower O2 delivery/utilization ratio in the RF but not the VL, which may be because these regions possess inherently different vascular/metabolic control properties, perhaps related to fiber-type composition. Keywords: hydrogen supplement; acid status; muscle deoxygenation; ventilation; incremental exercise 1. Introduction Molecular hydrogen (H2) is a colorless, tasteless, odorless, and minimal molecule with high flammability [1]. Most mammals, including humans, do not synthesize hydro- genase, which is a catalyst for the activation of H2 [2]. In sports science, there is limited research regarding the antioxidant effect of H2 on exercise-induced oxidative stress. Unlike conventional antioxidants, H2 is a gas molecule and as such it is believed to have several advantages for application in sports science [3–5]. H2 is the smallest molecule and thus can penetrate the cellular membrane and rapidly diffuse into organelles (e.g., mitochondria). H2 is thought to have no effect on physiologically reactive species (e.g., H2O2), as it can selectively reduce •OH and ONOO− [6]. In addition, H2 can be supplied to the body through multiple routes of administration, such as the oral intake of H2 water, H2 bathing, an intravenous infusion of H2 saline, and the inhalation of H2 gas.

Infinity Supercritical has developed the most profitable Supercritical CO2 Extraction Machines. Our CO2 terpene extraction system rapidly produces shelf-ready oils which make more money. Perfect for hemp oil extraction using environmentally friendly CO2 extraction equipment. Manufactures efficient oil extraction systems and machines for natural terpenes, flavorings, fragrance, hemp, beer hops, lavender and other botanicals. New for 2021 includes Molecular Hydrogen Skin Cream Machine for production of high value cosmetic skin cream. Silent technology includes supercritical co2, oil-to-oil extraction using induction magnetic mixing, and eco friendly hydrodynamic cavitation water as the solvent in our closed-looped systems. The process can also be used for electrowinning, e-waste recycling, and lithium battery recycling, gold mining electronic wastes, precious metals. CO2 can also be used in a reverse fuel cell with nafion to make a gas-to-liquids fuel, such as methanol, ethanol and butanol or ethylene. Supercritical CO2 has also been used for treating nafion to make it more effective catalyst. SCO2 can remove water from wood as an alternative to conventional kiln drying.
