Relevant Research on supplemental oxygen benefits.

Fatigue has been reported in many studies as one of the most common problems experienced by people throughout the world. A Harvard University study found that 77% of Americans cite low energy as a top health worry4.

Oxygen is the main ingredient for production of energy.

 

Here’s how it works in the body (see chart on right):

      1.  Oxygen is inhaled into the lungs. Food is broken down in the stomach and intestines.
      2.  The bloodstream carries oxygen to the muscles and absorbs nutrients.
      3.  Oxygen and nutrients are transported into the cells.
      4.  Oxygen and nutrients are used by mitochondria to produce ATP.
      5.  ATP provides energy to the cells.

In other words, each breath you take converts into energy. Human cells utilize nutrients from oxygen and food to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP), an energy source that fuels cell functions. If your cells don’t get enough oxygen, they will produce less energy. If your cells require more energy, they utilize greater amounts of oxygen. This is the reason your breathing increases while you workout.

When your energy decreases, your performance also decreases.

Conditions that will lower your oxygen levels – or create low-blood-oxygen levels (“LBO”) symptoms – include jet lag, air pollution, breathing air with less than 20-21% oxygen, intense workouts, high altitudes combined with sports, alcohol intake, stress and overexertion.

Four or five breaths of (O+) oxygen aids in the restoration of your body’s oxygen levels increasing energy and improving cognitive performance1,2 at work, home or play.
