The Times published a very interesting article within its pages this week. It sent sales of ClearO2 rocketing (thank you) and pushed the team’s inboxes to breaking point, thanks to a short and deceptively simple sentence.
‘Oxygen therapy reverses the body’s ageing process’
That’s right. Scientists say they have reversed two of the biological signs of ageing by giving people oxygen therapy. In this case, via a pressurised chamber.
The study reveals that as people grow older, their bodies build up a particular type of cell (known as senescent cells) which secrete harmful chemicals linked to conditions such as dementia, arthritis and osteopetrosis.
It goes on to suggest that the process of ageing also causes a shortening in certain parts of our DNA (telomeres) which leave us at greater risk of suffering from age-related illnesses.
So far, so bad.
Until now. As the study, conducted by scientists at Tel Aviv University has exposed the key to reversing these two biological hallmarks of growing old, with oxygen.
The incredible observations were made during a three month period studying 35 people over the age of 64. The group underwent five sessions a week in a hyperbaric chamber, breathing oxygen through a mask for 90 minutes at a time.
Blood samples taken at intervals during and after the 90 day test period showed a reduction in senescent cells and a lengthening in telomeres.
Which to us means a reduced chance of falling ill from chronic conditions related to age. Thanks to oxygen therapy.
The newspaper reported that Shai Efrati, an associate professor at Sackler Faculty of Medicine and the Sagol School of Neuroscience at Tel Aviv University, said, “…Ageing can, indeed, be targeted and reversed at the basic cellular-biological level…”
And that’s great news, right? Not only does oxygen therapy help improve mental acuity, fight fatigue, assist immune function and boost wellbeing in the short term, it also reverses the body’s ageing process in the long term.
And you can start today.
If you’re new to the idea of supplemental oxygen, a cost-effective way to begin feeling the benefits is by stocking up on ClearO2’s 15l oxygen can with inhaler cap and getting to grips with the best way to use it.
Your body will thank you for it.
