Abstract

Electrolyzed reduced water and natural waters such as Hita Tenryosui water in Japan, Nordenau water in Germany and Tracote water in Mexico, which are known to improve various diseases, were all and- oxidative waters which could scavenge intracellular reactive oxygen species. The and-oxidative waters stimulated not only the glucose uptake of rat myotube L6 cells, but also the secretion of insulin from a pancreatic beta cell line HIT-T15. The anti-oxidative waters improved the damage in the sugar tolerance test of type 2 diabetes model mice (db/db mice). A clinical investigation demonstrated that Nordenau water could significantly improve the diabetes mellitus.
