From the air that we breathe to the metabolic processes of our cells, oxygen is a core element that we physically cannot live without. Oxygen that we breathe in from the atmosphere is essential for energy production in most of our cells and allows the very complex systems in our body to function. Oxygen is something that we often take for granted as we cannot physically see it or touch it, but, if we are oxygen deficient, the effects can be detrimental! So, a trip to the AIRPOD Hydroxy chamber for oxygen therapy will benefit anyone willing to give it a go!
A point of difference of the Airpod Hydroxy is that there is an added hydrogen element to the chamber. The addition of hydrogen to hyperbaric oxygen therapy results in an increase in the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of oxygen therapy as hydrogen alleviates oxidative stress, benefiting every organ in the body.
The ability to intake sufficient oxygen for optimal cell health is commonly impacted by factors such as:
Lack of exercise
As we age, we also experience a natural reduction in cardiorespiratory function which can result in a lack of oxygen to the brain and body.
Due to this, most individuals suffer from common issues such as:
Lack of focus
Lack of mental clarity
Slow muscle recovery
Slow wound healing
GOOD NEWS! All these issues (that we often ignore) could all be addressed and reduced through pressurised oxygen therapy!
Is it Safe?
Oxygen therapy has been thoroughly studied since the 1800’s and is an extremely safe and effective therapy. The use of oxygen can often be feared due to the potential known risks that can occur when dealing with liquid oxygen. Luckily for us, the Airpod REVIVE does not operate with bottled oxygen therefore completely removing this risk altogether. Instead, the Airpod compresses the oxygen available in the room and uses pressure to increase the concentration of oxygen flowing through the body, in the safest way possible.
What are the benefits?
There are countless benefits to oxygen and hydrogen therapy that we are confident will make you love the Airpod as much as we do! It can improve concentration, memory and mental clarity, reduce fatigue and improve sleeping patterns by feeding our brain the oxygen it needs to function, and the pressure mechanism to use it most efficiently, giving us the greatest benefit. By flooding your cells with oxygen and hydrogen, it supports your body’s own healing systems, allowing new blood vessels to grow rapidly in affected areas. Through this it can play a large role in reducing inflammation and therefore can be extremely beneficial in post-operative healing and injury recovery, help living with certain chronic diseases or illnesses, provide anti-ageing benefits and may even reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases and conditions. Oxygen therapy also helps to boost the function of white blood cells in their ability to kill bacteria, which will in turn, improve the immune system and the body’s ability to fight off infection.
Let's Get Into the Science!
Once inhaled and filtered through the lungs, oxygen binds to the haemoglobin in our red blood cells, which are the carriers of oxygen around our bodies to the cells, muscles and tissues that need it. Pressure is required to dissolve oxygen into the blood plasma, which is an additional transport mechanism that increases the oxygen uptake to the muscles and tissues around our body. At sea level, 1 ATA (Atmosphere absolute), we breathe only 21% of oxygen and our red blood cells are saturated at 97%, meaning they cannot transfer any more oxygen. In the Airpod, the pressure settings reach up to 1.3 ATA increasing our exposure to oxygen to 28.35% which results in a significant 35% increase of oxygen uptake circulating in the body.
When inhaled, hydrogen is proven to selectively target toxic Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), or ‘free radicals’ around the body, concentrating in various organs to counteract the effects of oxidative stress and prevent disease, degeneration and ageing.
The Airpod REVIVE essentially provides the pressurised environment facilitating oxygen and hydrogen therapy through a safe, relaxing and rejuvenating experience. Whilst on your phone, doing some work on your laptop or closing your eyes and relaxing, oxygen will be carried through your blood to the areas of your body where you most need it, giving you the best tailored benefits to improve your overall wellness.
