Like many people who have spent a lot of time in hospitals, I thought I understood the importance of oxygen saturation. I am certainly used to having my saturation level monitored and measured by doctors, nurses and paramedics. Although I first heard about OxySorb some time ago, I have only recently started to learn about it in any detail.
Today, I have taken OxySorb (a formulation of Oxygen Absorbing Enzyme (OAE) from Norwegian Kelp) for the first time. I will be happy to learn more about what OxySorb (OAE) can do for me. The following is just a small part of what I have learnt so far.
We breathe approximately 5000 gallons of air a day, but what if you could increase your oxygen intake by 2-3%, enabling your lungs to put more oxygen into the bloodstream with every breath. This may not sound like a lot, but it would add approximately 150 gallons of readily available oxygen to your arterial blood system and increase blood saturation levels by up to 25%.
The range of oxygen saturation in our bloodstream is very narrow, the maximum is 100%, but the minimum, below which we would be comatose, is 70-80%. Thus within a total range of only 20-30%, small changes in the saturation percentage can be quite significant in relation to our health and physical performance.
In primeval times, there was twice as-much oxygen in the air as there is today. Worse still, today pollutants such as car fumes, industrial waste and smog are continuously lowering oxygen levels in the atmosphere. Our bodies try to compensate by breathing faster and by producing more red blood cells. This in turn increases blood pressure for faster movement of the less oxygenated blood.
Decreases in oxygen intake can also compromise the immune system. Each time we take a breath, air (of which about 18% is oxygen), enters the body. The air travels into the lungs, where oxygen is exchanged for carbon dioxide. The oxygen moves into the bloodstream and is circulated to every cell, allowing the process of energy production to continue.
It is easy to understand the significance of maintaining ‘high’ oxygen bloodstream levels when you realise there is only a certain amount of haemoglobin in the body. These cells load up with oxygen (and other gases that you have just breathed in) as they pass through the lungs. On their trip through the body they pick up more waste gases; typically, but not exclusively, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide. When they get back to the lungs, the waste gases must be ‘dumped’ (i.e. exhaled through the lungs) so that the haemoglobin can be loaded with more oxygen so the cycle can start over.
The less oxygen there is in the air available for you to breathe AND the slower the haemoglobin can ‘dump’ the waste gases, the less oxygen your cells can receive.
A simple analogy: take a bus crowded with passengers – the only way to get new passengers (oxygen) on board is to let old ones (carbon dioxide, etc.) off. The speed at which carbon dioxide leaves, and oxygen enters the body, is known as the transfer rate. The higher the rate the healthier you are.
Symptoms Of Oxygen Deficiency May Include
- Body weakness
- Circulation problems
- Poor digestion
- Muscle aches and pains
- Memory loss
- Irrational behaviour
- Acid stomach
- Bronchial problems
Some Dangers Of Oxygen Deficiency
When the body needs more oxygen than the transfer rate allows, it uses various signs to inform you to ‘slow down’, from being short of breath (panting), stitch and muscle cramps, and in rare cases… a heart attack! These symptoms are nothing more than symptoms of oxygen deprivation; that is, not having as much oxygen available as the body requires for the task being attempted.
Medical science knew no way to increase the transfer rate until OAE. In short, everyone can use more oxygen.
When the immune system is compromised by a lack of oxygen, our body is more susceptible to opportunistic bacteria, viral, and parasitic infections and colds, as well as flu.
Oxygen deprivation can also lead to life-threatening diseases, such as cancer. Cancer and most other infections or disease cannot live in an oxygen-rich environment.
Dr Otto Warburg, Head of the Max Plank Institute, Berlin, twice a Nobel Laureate, for cancer research stated:
Cancer has only one prime cause. It is the replacement of normal oxygen respiration of the body’s cells by an anaerobic (i.e. oxygen deficient) cell respiration.
A typical 70ml bottle can last 4-8 weeks and can provide a person with as much additional oxygen as you would get from a medical tank of oxygen everyday for 2 months. They can be taken as often as needed and can be used by all ages.
OAE is acceptable to vegetarians, since it contains no animal products!
FACT…Low levels of oxygen result in increased free radical production. A deficiency in cellular oxygen will also prevent our body from utilising antioxidants and other nutrients effectively. Regardless of the health promoting potential any nutrient may have, very little metabolic value can be experienced from it if our body is oxygen deficient.
OAE can help put more oxygen into the bloodstream than you can get by wearing a nasal catheter hooked up to an oxygen tank (at normally used therapeutic pressure).
The Background Of OAE
Dr A.A. Chaplan, MD PhD has studied the benefits of oxygen enhancement for the body since the 1970′s. Working alongside Dr Carl Pfeiffer at the Princetown Brain Bio Center, he developed OAE in 1984, after many years of applying some of Dr Pfeiffer’s amazing discoveries.
OAE is recognised today as the leader in delivering extra oxygen to the lungs, muscles, brain and digestive tract. No other enzyme available puts more oxygen in to the body than OAE
What Is OAE?
OAE is an all-natural sublingual liquid extract of Norwegian Kelp. It is the only enzyme available that enhances respiratory oxygen and allows the body to extract a higher percentage of oxygen from the air we breathe. It also helps the body to eliminate waste gases more efficiently, allowing the haemoglobin to load up with more oxygen from the air we are breathing with every breath. Its effects last for 3-4 hours after each dose.
In our general environment, full of sunshine and warmth, oxygen is formed by a process called photosynthesis and with the aid of warmth and adequate sunlight, chlorophyll from plants converts carbon dioxide to oxygen This process replenishes the atmosphere constantly with oxygen.
Nature has endowed Norwegian Kelp with the ability to flourish in freezing Arctic waters. Picture the task of Kelp in the cold North Sea, where it is dark 24 hours a day. In that severe and extreme climate, chlorophyll enzymes that convert carbon dioxide to oxygen have to be many times stronger. OAE contains these powerful enzymes, extracted from Norwegian Kelp, which accelerate the rate of both oxygen absorption and carbon dioxide elimination. Just 10-20 drops of these enzymes under the tongue enables the lungs to expel the body’s waste gases to make more room for oxygen absorption.
Why OAE Is So Effective?
Rapid and dependable oral absorption is the key to its effectiveness. Whilst it is held under the tongue for one minute, these enzymes have been formulated to directly enter the bloodstream, rather than be diluted and neutralised by the digestive effects of saliva. With OAE just 10-20 drops under the tongue is effective within a couple of minutes. This pure oxygen is transported by the haemoglobin on a journey to the billions of cells in our body, super-oxygenating them all along the way… fast.
The Proof It Can Work In 1 Minute
Most companies rely on scientific studies etc. However, there is a painless electronic gadget, which measures the increase in oxygen in the body; it is called an Oximeter. It literally clips to one’s finger and has been used at hundreds of trade shows, health food stores and health practitioners’ surgeries, on thousands of people, to show that OAE increases oxygen saturation of arterial blood, usually within 1 minute. What’s more, it usually shows that as the percentage of oxygen saturation increases, the pulse rate decreases.
Oncology staff at UCLA Medical Center advise that oxygen added by OAE makes radiation treatment more effective and simultaneously protects healthy cells.
Is OAE Safe?
Private and government laboratory tests prove OAE is totally safe for human consumption. OAE may be taken with any other supplements or medications. When we stimulate the absorption of oxygen in this way, it is in the same form that our body uses, so it is available for immediate absorption into our bloodstream.
Who Can Benefit From OAE?
Virtually everyone in the world could benefit from it at various times, but here are some obvious and perhaps not so obvious. OAE can be used wherever oxygen deprivation is known or suspected, because of heavy physical activity, low environmental oxygen levels or reduced lung capacity.
