Oxygen is the worlds most basic fuel! Most people have common oxygen deficiency because of several factors including:
First, let’s review the basics: Our blood has an average of 96% oxygen. When you don’t have enough oxygen, also called hypoxia, then you experience a variety of symptoms including…
Now, let’s look at something we don’t usually associate with common oxygen deficiency: air quality.
The available oxygen in our air has decreased over the years, especially in cities and areas with a lot of industrial. In these areas air pollution and carbon monoxide contribute to low environmental oxygen levels.
Did you know… Scientist have found air bubbles in ancient amber (amber is fossilized tree resin [not sap], which has been appreciated for its color and natural beauty since Neolithic times) in which the oxygen levels of this environmental air is 38%!
Likewise, scientists who study historical climate records by looking at glacier ice core gasses have found that before the Industrial Revolution began, in the 1700’s, our air was 32% oxygen.
However, after the Industrial Revolution, by the 1900’s the oxygen content of the Earth’s air had decreased to only 24%.
Now, if that wasn’t bad enough…. the oxygen content in the air we breath today could be as low as 19 to 21%. And in large cities it could be even lower than that. This oxygen deficient air contributes to oxygen deficiency in our bodies.
Why is this trend in decreasing oxygen content of our air so important? Quite simply, human life cannot be supported if our available oxygen levels dropped to 7%. It is not science fiction that this could happen. For instance, if the world’s primary sources of oxygen (ocean plankton and rain forest vegetation) continue to be destroyed the oxygen levels in our air will continue to decline also.
Bottom line: Our bodies were built for a world with better oxygen levels then is available to use today. And we may not be able to get all the oxygen our bodies need to stay healthy simply by breathing.
There is hope, however, in that there are things you can do to improve the oxygen available to you through making changes in your habits like we have discussed in parts 1-5 of this series. The first step is to create daily habits that naturally increase oxygen. These are explained fully in the slide show “Free Ways To Increase Your Oxygen Level”
And you can always use a premium oxygen supplement like OxygenSuperCharger which is 35% ASO Bio-available Liquid Oxygen in a liquid saline base. It is near perfectly pH balanced and has no toxic chemicals.
We hope you have enjoyed this six part series and the information here will help you to improve both your oxygen levels and health.
