Intestinal bacteria can be classified into “beneficial bacteria” and “harmful bacteria.” However, it is difficult to explain the mechanisms that make “beneficial bacteria” truly beneficial to human health. This issue can be addressed by focusing on hydrogen-producing bacteria in the intestines. Although it is widely known that molecular hydrogen can react with hydroxyl radicals, generated in the mitochondria, to protect cells from oxidative stress, the beneficial effects of hydrogen are not fully pervasive because it is not generally thought to be metabolized in vivo. In recent years, it has become clear that there is a close relationship between the amount of hydrogen produced by intestinal bacteria and various diseases, and this report discusses this relationship.
