Oxygen is the eighth element on the list of chemical elements found on Earth. It has the symbol "O" and is a fundamental requirement for life. Oxygen provides energy for most living objects. Fortunately oxygen is the third most abundant element in the universe, and the most abundant element by mass in the Earth's crust. In the atmosphere, oxygen is 20.8% of the air we breathe at sea level. Oxygen is too chemically reactive to remain a free element in Earth's atmosphere without being continuously replenished by photosynthesis from plants.
What does this mean to the athlete? The above is saying that normally the athletes are breathing 20.8% oxygen, 78.2% nitrogen and 1% other gases. There is little benefit from breathing nitrogen. If the athlete works out at high altitude, he will still be breathing 20.8% oxygen. However the density of the air is thinner and the volume of oxygen available to the lungs is less. In time the lungs adjust to thinner air. This may be the reason the U.S. Olympic Training Center is located in Colorado Springs, CO. Where the volume of oxygen is less than found at sea level. Training in Colorado Springs conditions a person's lungs to function normally with less oxygen. Conversely, if training or competing at sea level, one can breathe a higher volume of oxygen to increase performance.
Sports Oxygen is classified as recreational oxygen and is limited to 95 percent maximum oxygen content. Likewise, pilots oxygen is limited to 95 percent maximum. Above 95 percent is considered medical grade oxygen and requires a doctor's supervision and prescription. The reason for controlling 100 percent medical grade oxygen is a person loses their natural ability to exhale their exhaust gases and will poison themselves and possibly die. By mixing at least 5 percent nitrogen with the 100 percent oxygen, the tendency to exhale is maintained. The medical practice limits/restricts the flow of 100 percent oxygen. A restricted flow requires the patient to mix ambient air with their oxygen, including nitrogen, to get a full breath. Nitrogen is automatically mixed with the 100 percent oxygen, diluting it, and a person does not poison themselves with their exhaust gases.
An athlete's oxygen level in their blood is probably close to the maximum level the blood can carry. When the blood is full of oxygen we consider this a 100 percent blood oxygen level. Most healthy athletes are probably around 95 or 97 percent blood oxygen level and as they spend energy this level declines as the oxygen is consumed by their activity. At some point the athlete is going to have to stop and catch their breath and re-oxygenate their blood.
One trick an athlete can employ is to increase their blood oxygen level before they compete. For example, if they bring their oxygen level up to 99 or 100 percent they will have more time before they need to stop and rest. That is where Sports Oxygen helps the athlete gain an advantage. If they have a medical grade oxygen bottle they can suck on like most pro teams have, that will meet their needs. Short of being on a pro team, they can obtain cans of recreational grade Sports Oxygen and achieve the same advantage. Consuming half a can of Sports Oxygen 5 or 10 minutes before competing raises the oxygen level in their blood. Then during or after the competition, Sports Oxygen provides faster recovery. Half a dozen breaths of Sports Oxygen will bring one's oxygen level back to normal faster than just trying to catch one's breath.
The athlete will notice a difference in how much energy they have before fatigue sets in. For example, in a lacrosse match, both teams will have similar energy levels during the first half of the game. But during the second half the oxygenated team with the higher oxygen level will still have energy. While the other team will show signs of fatigue allowing the oxygenated team to win the game during the second half.
What about energy drinks? Energy drinks normally contain high levels of caffeine, sugar and other chemicals that provide energy. Not considering the negative aspects of their ingredients, it is proven that oxygen provides 80 percent of the energy required by the body and only 10 percent of one's energy comes from what they consume. So the obvious question is which do you want? Do you want an energy drink for 10 percent or Sports Oxygen for a 90 percent source of in energy?
What is the effect on lactic acid build up in the body? It is believed that an ample supply of oxygen tends to flush out the lactic acid from one's muscles enabling them to function better. However it is not known how much oxygen is necessary to have much of a benefit. It has been demonstrated that 10 minutes at an oxygen bar is successful at flushing lactic acid from one's muscles. However a small can of Sports Oxygen may not be enough oxygen to flush out all the lactic acid from one's muscles. But there will be a reduction in lactic acid in the muscles.
Is the use of Sports Oxygen legal? There are no known sports authorities or regulators that ban the use of Sports Oxygen. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency says it is illegal to "artificially enhance" ones blood ... Everything I have read suggests breathing Sports Oxygen in not artificial, it is natural enhancement. There are also no known tests to measure or detect the use of Sports Oxygen. Every athlete is different and this range establishes the accepted limits. One athlete may have a little higher blood oxygen level because he or she is not exposed to second hand smoke, or live and train in an area free of smog. There are many reasons why athletes will normally have different blood oxygen levels and the differences support a wide range of acceptable blood oxygen levels in athletes. Sports Oxygen may raise the blood oxygen level in one athlete while a second athlete may have the same high blood oxygen level because they train at high altitude. There is no know way to test for the difference in blood oxygen levels. Raising ones blood oxygen level from 97% to 99% is small, but can have a big advantage while competing or training.
What should you expect from Sports Oxygen? If you are not fatigued or in need of oxygen, you may not notice any benefit immediately. If you are using Sports Oxygen, we suggest you establish a way to measure the benefits. If you are working out, we suggest you measure your performance with and without Sports Oxygen. For example, if you are a weight lifter. Count how many reps you can do lifting a 25 or 50 pound dumbbell with out oxygen. Then take an ample supply of oxygen and count the number of reps you can do after raising the oxygen level in your blood. You will notice an increase in reps, but you may not feel any effects on your body unless your body is in need of oxygen. But you will notice a performance difference.
A common occurrence at oxygen bars is a customer will complain that they do not feel anything. They're sitting in a chair and looking for the effects of a narcotic or something. We tell them they will notice a difference when they start walking. Their legs will fell lighter after the lactic acid is flushed out of their muscles and they will have extra energy to walk father and faster.
Each sport activity requires a unique method to measure the benefits of Sports Oxygen. For example a runner sprinting a 40 yard dash may not consume his natural oxygen in the short race and never get to the point of needing additional oxygen. On the other hand a marathon runner will consume any excess oxygen and be limited to how much oxygen they can breathe naturally and transfer oxygen into their blood and body cells while maintaining a pace for 26 miles. The marathon runner will hit the wall sooner than a sprinter on a 40 yard dash. The sprinter will probably never hit the wall except during training. The marathon runner can measure the time it takes before hitting the wall, and compare it to experiences with and without Sports Oxygen. A bike rider can measure himself by observing the speed and time difference while climbing a training hill. A weight lifter can count the number of rep with a dumbbell. A swimmer can use time to compare differences in performance with and without Sports Oxygen. Each sport is unique and each athlete needs to develop a way to measure performance with and without oxygen.
An athlete can also benefit from the increase in cognitive reasoning power resulting from using Sports Oxygen. Typically an athlete will be able to make faster and more accurate decisions while competing. For example how long does a ping pong ball player have to decide how to receive and return a serve? A nanosecond can have a big effect on performance. Likewise a running back carrying a football has to make quick decisions on where to zig and zag to avoid being tackled. A weight lifter has to tell his muscles when and how fast to react to the weight. A marathon runner needs to decide how to pace ones self and this can be challenging when exhausted. In short, Sports Oxygen helps an athlete make better decisions while competing.
In addition to athletes, seniors can benefit from Sports Oxygen. Often a senior finds himself or herself short of breath while walking around a shopping mall or possibly just walking to the car. Taking 2 or 3 breaths of Sports Oxygen can help them regain their breath and allow them to continue their journey.
Many people suffer from high altitude sickness while visiting Colorado or some other high altitude location above 6000 feet. Altitude sickness primarily causes headaches. Extreme altitude sickness can cause lack of appetite, nausea, or vomiting, plus many other symptoms including nosebleeds, drowsiness, fever, and loss of consciousness. A can of Sports Oxygen can bring relief to most of these symptoms.
Sports Oxygen has many additional advantages to the athlete and non-athletes alike. Following is a list of some of the additional benefits believed to come with Sports Oxygen.
Sports Oxygen and this guide are not intended to replace a medical doctor's advice, or prevent or cure any illness. Likewise we do not suggest pregnant women or patients with COPD use Sports Oxygen without consulting their doctor first. Sports Oxygen is recreational oxygen intended for improving one's athletic performance and not a replacement for a doctor's recommendation.0
