Boost Oxygen Performance


During periods of physical activity, our bodies work hard to maintain blood oxygen levels. You start to breathe harder because your body is trying to supply more oxygen to your lungs to energize cells, tissues, muscles and organs. When heavy breathing does not produce enough oxygen, the body will begin to source the oxygen internally through a process known as Anaerobic Respiration. Cramping and muscle fatigue result when the glycogen in Oxygen-starved blood transforms into lactic acid. By introducing more oxygen, the blood is able to inhibit the production of lactic acid and expel any existing already. The most important part of using oxygen for performance is to ‘oxygen load’ before any strenuous activity for top physical and mental performance. This is also referred to as “VO2 Max”. When the body is experiencing extreme physical or emotional stress (surges of adrenaline and cortisol) it metabolizes oxygen at a greater rate which results in fatigue. Bodies emit more carbon dioxide during a strenuous event than the intake of oxygen which causes muscle fatigue and cramping due to the build-up of lactic acid. The goal is delivering more OXYGENATED blood to your cells, tissues, muscles and organs. Supplemental Oxygen can help!
