Oxygen For Wellness
Recharge & Rejuvenate
Breathe better, live better
How can supplemental oxygen help wellness?
Studies show that supplemental oxygen is an all-natural health and wellness aid that promotes recovery, sharpens mental acuity, and helps generate energy at the cellular level. Health professionals state that increased oxygen intake can help with health and well-being. It promotes energy and increased capacity for aerobic exercise.
1. Improve respiratory symptoms
Supplemental oxygen reduces stress on the lungs which can help with improved breathing comfort. Having supplementary oxygen at hand wherever you do can also make you feel more secure in cases where you many have difficulty or trouble breathing.
2. Increase cognitive function and alertness
Oxygen feeds our brain. Hence, with the use of supplemental oxygen, our ability to think, reason and memorise can be improved. Many studies have shown proof as to how supplemental oxygen can aid in raising cognitive functions. Need an extra BOOST for work or studies? Our Rosemary Boost Oxygen ThinkTank is available here for all fellow hardworkers!
3. Lower risk of heart diseases and health complications
Our body needs oxygen to function. For this reason, having hypoxemia (oxygen levels fall below 92%) is extremely dangerous. Hypoxemia, or low blood oxygen, is a condition where there is a low oxygen level in blood which can lead to health complications. Hence, doctors may prescribe oxygen therapy and/or oxygen concentrators to allow for continuous supply of oxygen to patients. Supplemental oxygen canisters like Boost Oxygen Natural provides temporal, intermittent oxygen supply. It effectively increases blood oxygen saturation temporarily when you need it most – especially when outdoors.
4. effective In helping you get better sleep
People with respiratory disorders often require the help of supplemental oxygen for sleep. Patients in hospitals may also be provided with continuous oxygen flow to aid with rest and recovery. For stressed working adults, sleep may not come easily. Many find themselves thinking of work long after working hours are over. This inability to regulate stress and thoughts result in poor sleep quality. Thus, taking deep breaths of aromatic oxygen like Boost Oxygen can help with relaxation and can assist in easing you into deep sleep. Boost Oxygen Pinkgrapefruit is one of our favourite as its mild aromatherapy helps us relax and recognise that its time to sleep!
Cocoon for sleep
The Cocoon by O2genes is a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber (mHBOT). Oxygen levels and pressure in the Cocoon is 40% higher than sea level. This wellness tool that immerses individuals in high levels of oxygen ensures that oxygenated blood is circulated all around our body. In high pressured oxygenated environments, our tissues are flushed with high levels of oxygen and we are able to enjoy benefits such as increased metabolism, higher energy levels, faster recovery, and more!
In the case of sleep, the University of Alberta Neuroscientists found that when an individual is exposed to high levels of oxygen, it encourages their brain to remain in deep, restorative sleep. Deep sleep helps our brains and bodies with recovery as well as memory consolidation. On the other hand, when we are exposed to less oxygen, our brains remain in rapid-eye movement (REM) sleep. Oxygen therapy like the cocoon could be used to enhance deep sleep to ensure that individuals who tend to suffer from insomnia get enough restorative and slow-wave sleep.
5. combat stress and fatigue
Stress is notably one of the biggest causes for concern today. But how do we combat it? According to the American Institute of Stress (AIS), the act of “focused breathing” is, by far, the best way to combat stress. In other words, a few deep inhalations can help “jumpstart” focused breathing by getting you to slow down and concentrate on breath intake.
In like manner, fatigue can also disrupt your quality of life. The National Institute for Health (NIH) states that “Oxygen therapy helps many people function better and be more active. It also may help decrease……fatigue.” In line with getting better sleep, oxygen can help you overcome issues related to sleep and fatigue.
6. Improve exercise capabilities
Those who suffer from chronic lung diseases or respiratory conditions can’t do exercise normally without the help of supplemental oxygen. Engaging in physical activity increases demand for oxygen and forces the lungs to work harder.
Supplemental oxygen can give you the extra catch of breath you need when engaging in physical activity.
For athletes, supplementary oxygen cans like Boost Oxygen can BOOST your physical condition to the next level. Struggling on the treadmill? Instead of slowing down progress, try taking supplementary Peppermint Boost Oxygen! It pushes you through that extra stretch and can strengthen you more for your next jog or exercise. In the long run, it can improve your stamina, time and pace even without supplementary oxygen!
Cocoon for exercise
Hyperbaric oxygen is breathing in high concentrated oxygen while being subjected to pressure greater than ambient pressure. Oxygen naturally plays a crucial role in recovery from injury and physiological fatigue. Under hyperbaric oxygen environments, more oxygen is dissolved in the blood plasma, increasing the oxygen reaching the peripheral tissues. HBOT is therefore expected to improve recovery from injury and fatigue.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been reported to be beneficial in terms of accelerating cell recovery and tissue repair, which are considered to be helpful for eliminating fatigue and recovering stamina. This study was performed to evaluate the efficacy of HBOT for exercise-related muscular injury. (Chen et al., 2019) Moreover, recent experimental evidence implies that pain may be decreased with intermittent to long-term exposure to hyperbaric oxygen sessions.
