When oxygen levels are increased, the red blood cells and plasma 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. We feel better, our body is healthier and we think more clearly because of increased oxygenation.
