How significant is oxygen in the air for our body?
75 % OF THE AIR WE BREATHE IN IS EXHALED AGAIN UNUSED
Without water or food human beings can survive for days or even weeks, but without air just a few minutes.
Of the 21% of oxygen contained in respiratory air, the human body can only use around 25% of this. A small amount, especially when you consider that even this 25% may be further restricted by increasingly influential environmental factors. Our modern lifestyle can stress the human organism with up to 80,000 harmful substances each and every day. This places enormous pressure on our body’s detoxification processes.
Humans thus make relatively poor use of respiratory air. And above all: The weaker or older you are, the less oxygen the body utilises.
Our body is made up of ca. 60 billion cells. 10 million new cells are created every second, while 10 million old cells die off. In every single one of these cells up to 1 billion controlled biochemical reactions can take place each second. This is quicker than any computer processor. The main energy supplier used by the body to achieve this is oxygen in the air.
Some 5% of the oxygen in our inhaled air reaches the bloodstream. This is just about sufficient for a healthy person. Any additional percentage can help the body’s cells to perform better.
The German biochemist, doctor and physiologist Otto Heinrich Warburg won the Nobel Prize in 1931 for discovering that, in simple terms, all cells will become diseased if they are unable to make the best use of oxygen in the air. Activated Oxygen Therapy is based on these findings.
What is Activated Oxygen Therapy?
Activated Air – a technology which reflects nature.
Activated Air technology uses one of nature’s processes which has existed for millions of years, i.e. photosynthesis in green leaves. This ensures that oxygen is activated in a way which your body understands.
The oxygen present in respiratory air is not reactive. In order to make the oxygen utilisable for producing energy in the body, the body must first bring the oxygen into its reactive state – the singlet state. However, as the body’s ability to use the oxygen diminishes with increasing age, through stress, illness and environmental toxins the body requires energy in order to improve its performance and therefore its healing and regeneration processes again. Activated Oxygen Therapy helps the body to increase its use of oxygen in a natural way.
How does it work?
In the device the air’s oxygen is continually returned to its high energy state (singlet oxygen) which is the physiologically active form of the oxygen that the body is familiar with.
This enables a process to take place which is technologically adapted from the natural processes of photosynthesis.
The short-lived singlet oxygen returns in a fraction of a millisecond to its basic state and therefore gives off energy. The water molecules in the respiratory air take over this energy which is then inhaled through a comfortable breathing mask together with normal respiratory air.
In the organism the “Activated Oxygen” noticeably improves the way the oxygen is used and has a positive effect on many of the body’s functions – without an additional supply of oxygen and without foreign substances.
