The air we breathe is composed of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and 1% trace gases. The oxygen that we take in helps convert food into energy. Oxygen also helps burn up toxins in our body that come from the foods that we eat, the drugs that we take, and other environmental factors. Lack of oxygen can cause heart attacks, strokes, and death.
Too little oxygen intake can cause fatigue, improper digestion, inability to concentrate, slower healing properties, poor metabolism, and toxin retention. More oxygen intake, on the other hand, can make us more physically alert, improve our focus and concentration, help our bodies heal faster, hasten our metabolism, and provide restful sleep.
People suffering from chronic breathing problems should consider getting a portable oxygen concentrator. It’s a real lifesaver! Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease need higher concentrations of oxygen when they breathe, and that’s exactly what oxygen concentrators do. They remove nitrogen from the air that they accumulate and purify it, increasing the oxygen content considerably. Portable oxygen concentrators are also cheaper than liquid oxygen, plus they are also easy to maintain.
