Why we need Oxygen?
Oxygen, energy for the organs - On average we take 16 breaths each minute and inhale vital oxygen
every time. Under normal circumstances air contains 21% oxygen.
Oxygen (O2) gets into the body via the lungs and to a small extent,
through the skin.
Inhaled oxygen is passed via the pulmonary alveoli to the red blood
agent, Haemoglobin, which transports it in the blood stream via the
arteries to the remotest regions of the body and supplies all organs
The veins in turn collect carbon dioxide (CO2) a waste metabolic
gas, produced when the body burns food and energy and which is
removed through the lungs by exhaling.
Like any engine, our organs require energy in order to function.
Energy is gained from our daily food intake and the sugar and fat
reserves of the body.
Oxygen is absolutely necessary for the process because with its help, a kind of controlled burning of the nutrients can take place in the cells. Every cell in the body carries out certain tasks and functions: our heart and muscle cells pump blood around the circulation, kidney and liver cells deal with the removal of waste and nerve cells enable us to think and feel.
Without energy, cells cannot work
- Without the ‘burning’ of nutrients, energy cannot be produced
- Without oxygen, there is no burning process in the cells
- Without oxygen, life is not possible
According to the German Law governing medicines, Oxygen in
disposable cans is a medicine for sale over the counter. The
production follows pharmaceutical guidelines and is monitored by the
local authority. Applicable for Germany is the “Regierungspräsidium
Düsseldorf”, who issued a permit for the distribution of Oxyfit -
The Consequences of Low Oxygen:
Without oxygen we cannot exist. It’s only when all our body cells
are supplied with sufficient oxygen all the time that they can stay
healthy and replace themselves regularly.
Without food intake, survival is possible for about four weeks;
without fluids, for about four days and without oxygen, only for
about four minutes. The survival and function of every individual
cell depend on the regular supply of oxygen.
Environmental influences on the body’s own energy supply:
Our modern industrial society has developed its own symptoms, such
as exhaust fumes, smog, raised ozone levels and industrial
pollution. As a result, many people experience breathing
difficulties. But also in poorly ventilated rooms, or when we are
under stress or pressure at work, the supply of oxygen is often not
The signs can be growing tiredness, exhaustion, headaches or lack of
enthusiasm. Our abilities are reduced. Our age plays a role too,
because over the years, our lungs are no longer able to supply the
blood with oxygen as efficiently as before. Between 20 and 30 years
of age, our lungs take in about 5.6 litres of air, but by the time
we are 70, this has reduced to around only 2.8 litres.
An under-supply of oxygen can cause some serious health conditions
to develop. Among these nervous exhaustion brought about by negative
stress, depression, predisposition to infectious diseases, even
chronic bronchitis. It can go as far as angina pectoris, disturbance
of the heart rhythm, coronary heart disease, arteriosclerosis,
circulatory problems and complaints of old age, such as impairment
of hearing or sight, chronic skin disorders and wearing of the
joints. Oxygen enables regeneration; it strengthens us and helps to
prevent these complaints.
What’s more, a good supply of oxygen to our bodies delay ageing in
the cells and improves immunity against diseases. 1)
OXYfit can help to compensate for a deficiency in supply. Oxyfit is
medical oxygen, in practical and light tin cans of 8 litres, 5
litres and 2 litres for quick access.
This form of supplementary oxygen was developed for healthy and
active people to take an energy breather, as well as for suffers
from temporary shortage of breath. Those with reduced breathing
efficiency or the elderly should talk to their doctor before using
OXYfit. OXYfit does not replace repetitive oxygen therapy.
Application is simple and safe. A pharmaceutically certified company
in Switzerland fills the cans with oxygen under pressure, in order
to provide a higher volume. No propellants are used in the process.
As an alternative to taking oxygen via the inhalation cap, an oxygen
mask can be substituted. This method is suitable for use in the
Oxygen used by professional organisations:
Because of the energy it releases, oxygen is in demand. You can
drink it, inhale it in concentrated form, rub it on the skin and
even use it in soap:
Mineral water with an extra portion of oxygen is increasingly
popular. It usually contains around 15 to 25 times more oxygen than
ordinary tap water.
Selected shower gels contain oxygen. It floats in the gel in the
form of bubbles and increases the feeling of freshness after a
With age, air pollution, smoking and stress, the skins breathing
slows down, resulting in tired-looking skin with wrinkles and lines.
Skin creams containing oxygen are designed to rejuvenate the
complexion. To prevent the gas molecules dispersing into the air
when the lid is lifted, some creams lock them into tiny liposomes,
similar to transport capsules.
More intensive than creams are treatments: during an oxygen shower
the beauty therapist guides a jet over the skin to smoothen
wrinkles. In oxygen impulse treatment, concentrated liquid oxygen is
injected into the skin very precisely, using a spray pistol and a
bio-electric low voltage micro current device.
