THE INCREDIBLE BENEFITS OF OXYGEN
Oxygen is one of the five Building Blocks of Life, every human, animal and plant requires oxygen to survive. But what does oxygen actually do for us?
Oxygen gives you energy! Almost 90% of the body’s nutritional energy comes from oxygen, and only 10% from food and water. Glucose and oxygen combine to create energy to contract and relax muscles. Without oxygen, lactic acid builds (toxic) and muscles cannot contract, and lactic acid can only be removed by the presence of oxygen.
In the human body, oxygen is the single most abundant element, making up 65% of body mass. You're breathing oxygen nearly every second of every day and it's clearly very important to sustain life. Oxygen fuels our cells and helps provide the basic building blocks that our bodies need to survive. So important is oxygen, that even where optimum water, protein, vitamin and mineral intake is maintained, poor health will still exist if there’s an oxygen deficiency.
The benefits list is quite long, so take a breath and be amazed by the power of oxygen!
Oxygen is essential to sustain a healthy body...
- Oxygen is vital to your immune system and critical when your body is under attack by viruses
- Promotes cellular energy and healing and is effective at combating pathogenic bacteria and parasites in the body
- Shortens healing and recovery times for organs, tissues, and cells.
- Assists the body in overcoming bio toxins and provides critical support to core body functions, particularly brain function
- Oxygen is stored in your muscles to keep them functioning without pain and stiffness
- Oxygen is necessary for your body to recovery after physical exertion as used oxygen typically stored in reserves must be replenished
- Provides a natural remedy for headaches, migraines and hangovers
- Promotes healing of wounds, required for chronic wound healing
- Heightens concentration, alertness and memory
- Relieves temporary altitude discomfort
- Improves digestion and cell metabolism
- Calms your mind and stabilizes your nervous system
- Lessens chronic fatigue syndrome and provides better sleep patterns
- Helps relieve pain, reduces edema, and works as a general anti-inflammatory
In conclusion, as one of the building blocks of life, every human, animal, and plant requires oxygen to thrive; without adequate oxygen, health concerns are guaranteed. Not only does oxygen form the basis for the body to keep organs, tissues, and cells healthy, oxygen aids in reducing inflammation, killing bacteria, accelerating healing, and providing the body the basis of which energy is created and used. Oxygen is also a particularly important part of our immune system by fueling the cells that make up our body's defenses against viruses. Something we all need more of now due to the current global environment, and for the foreseeable future.
