Athletes and Supplemental Oxygen

Around the world athletes in many different sports are encouraged by their trainers to continue using supplemental oxygen for numerous reasons including:

  • Increase in energy
  • Quicker recovery from exercise and fatigue
  • Relief of muscle soreness
  • Accelerated fat burning potential and weight loss
  • Increase in stamina
  • Increase in focus and concentration
  • Assistance in recovery from injuries
  • Strengthened the immune system
  • Mental and physical relaxation

Like most active people, athletes find themselves “on the go” a great deal of the time. The effects of traveling long distances in cramped airplanes with reduced oxygen in the cabin are enough to wear down even the most finely tuned athletes. Breathing oxygen enriched air helps athletes combat many of the uncomfortable side effects we all experience while traveling including:

  • Fatigue due to jet-lag or travel
  • Headaches and hangovers
  • General Malaise
  • Relief of nausea
  • Problems associated with high altitude
  • Overall feeling of well-being
  • Improve digestion

Athletes and medical professionals both agree that the use of supplemental oxygen will increase athletic performance by not only aiding in faster recovery, but also by boosting stamina and allowing athletes to perform at their peak potential for extended periods of time.
