Anti-Aging & Athletic Performance
Aging is characterized by a general decrease in O2 supply to tissues and a reduction in tissue pO2. A diminished vascularization in aging alters the diffusion of O2 at the capillary tissue level.
Aging is associated with both hypoxia (38% reduction in oxygen levels, Po2 21.7 mmHg) and increases reactive oxygen species in visceral fat depots of aging male C57Bl/6 mice
In a clinical examination of 46 patients with EWOT, about 2/3 experienced an increase of resting values of arterial oxygen pressure. This effect continues more than 3 months after the end of O2MT [EWOT], demonstrating prophylactic and therapeutic effects, including improvement of cardiorespiratory and cardiovascular efficiency, especially for the use of preventive-treatment and gerontology-therapy.
59 patient’s mental capacity was measured by computer-based-methods before and after EWOT and compared to 14 controls. The test group saw a 19-23% improvement in short term memory and times needed for the accomplishment of perception, interference and reaction tests became significantly shorter by 12-18%
Cancer, Inflammation & The Immune System
Over 70 years ago, Warburg showed that cells could always be made cancerous by subjecting them to periods of hypoxia.
In metastatic cells, the accelerated cell proliferation will further increase the level of hypoxia due to the increased cell accumulation, potentially forming a vicious cycle.
Hypoxia can induce inflammation. In persons with mountain sickness, for example, levels of circulating proinflammatory cytokines increase, and vascular leakage causes pulmonary or cerebral edema.
