Benefits of Oxygen to the Body
When oxygen levels are increased, the red blood cells pick up the extra oxygen, and provide it to our body tissues. Waste gases and toxins are removed more efficiently and cells begin to function normally.
Anaerobic viruses, bacteria and fungi, unable to live in an oxygen – enriched environment, are compromised. Oxygen builds resistance to infections like yeast (candida albicans) that thrive in an oxygen deficient environment. Oxygen helps to neutralize acids in our body, like lactic acid resulting from muscle overload. Our body’s chemical reactions are “fired-up” due to the increased oxygen levels. We burn fat more efficiently. Sleep often improves even at altitude. We feel better, our body is healthier and we think more clearly because of increased oxygenation.
Here are more benefits discovered by extensive research:
- Many notice their brain used to fatigue before their body and now their body fatigues before their brain.
- Removes free radicals
- Reduces tissue swelling
- Increases neuronal energy metabolism in the brain
- Can create sustained cognitive improvement
- Wakes up sleeping (idling) brain cells that are metabolizing enough to stay alive but are not actively “firing”.
- Enhances the body’s ability to fight bacterial and viral infections
- Deactivates toxins and poisons (e.g. side effects from some chemotherapy, spider bites, air pollution, etc.)
- Enhances wound healing (stimulates new capillaries into wounds).
- Creates an immediate aerobic state
- Acts as an anti-inflammator
- Oxygen in your body’s water determines your immune energy
- Cell oxygen use controls alkalinity
