Oxygen is vital to our bodies’ strength and vitality with oxygen directly fuelling 90% of all body and mind functions. The human body must have Oxygen to convert fuel (the carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in our diet) into heat, energy, and life. Conditions that can reduce the body’s Oxygen levels are air pollution, poorly ventilated living and working spaces, intense workouts, sports activities, demanding lifestyles, stress and alcohol consumption. Boost Oxygen is a natural solution to the negative effects of low oxygen levels such as low energy, a lack of concentration and exhaustion. A few deep breaths of Boost Oxygen helps you stay at your best.
A growing number of athletes are using Boost Oxygen as part of their regular training programme. During times of strenuous physical activity, the body simply exhales more carbon dioxide than it admits in Oxygen. The body’s response to maintain blood oxygen levels is to obviously breathe more heavily to increase Oxygen intake. Anaerobic respiration can also occur. This is when the body starts to use internal sources for its Oxygen, as it is not receiving enough from the outside air. Muscle fatigue and cramping occur when glycogen in oxygen-starved blood turns into lactic acid. Adding Oxygen to the blood inhibits the production of lactic acid and helps the body clear out any lactic acid that is already present. Recovery is easier with supplemental Oxygen. Supplemental Oxygen allows the athlete to train harder, train longer and to recover faster.
Breathing increased Oxygen has also been shown to improve cognitive performance. The fact is the brain is the largest consumer of oxygen out of all the organs in the body. In fact, it can use over 20% of the oxygen the body takes in. Judith Wurtman, a cognitive scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston advises that the concept of Oxygen boosting the brain's performance only makes sense. "Everyone has experienced the lethargic effect of riding in a plane with poor air circulation for four hours. It makes you mentally foggy," she says. "But I don't think breathing pure oxygen is a practical solution. Who wants to go into an exam with an oxygen tank on their back?"" With Boost Oxygen it doesn’t have to be that inconvenient.
The use of supplemental Oxygen is also a terrific hangover cure. Simply put, when we drink alcohol, we become oxygen-deficient. It takes 3 molecules of oxygen to metabolize 1 molecule of alcohol. If you know a fireman, policeman, welder or doctor/nurse who has access to supplemental oxygen, he or she will most likely be able to confirm that inhaling oxygen is an amazing hangover remedy!
