If lightening quick reflexes and reaction times are critical to who wins or loses in your arena, then here is something that could very well ensure that attention and reaction times are at their optimum.
Here’s an interesting fact, a study was done on a group of students to determine the effect of inhaling highly concentrated oxygen on reaction times. There was a significant improvement in reaction time in the presence of 43.2% oxygen compared with the 22.1% oxygen condition (Normal Air). This result supports the hypothesis that hyperoxic air increases oxygen saturation level in the blood, leading to more available oxygen to the brain, thus increasing the ability of cognitive processing.
These results are not surprising as meditation and martial arts teach us that strength, focus and awareness stem from how we breathe. Breathing a purer form of oxygen during a high-pressure competitive environment, can only lead to oxygen optimisation in the blood and the brain, resulting in improved alertness and awareness.
When we think of high speed, one but can’t help of thinking of race car drivers. The speeds at which man and machine are now accustomed to travelling at, on the race circuit is staggering, which means there is little to no room for error. Reflexes and alertness have to be lightening quick to manoeuvre a car on a track at over 300km an hour. It comes as no surprise that race car drivers in the UK and US are now using supplemental oxygen during races to keep super sharp.
Realistically any sport that involves physical and mental agility will benefit from the use supplemental oxygen. If the mind is in an optimum state of clarity, then execution of competition strategy becomes second nature.
Another useful tip is that, if pre-match jitters sometimes get the better of you, supplementing the mind with supplemental oxygen reduces the effect of shallow breathing caused by anxiousness, helping reduce cortisol levels, (stress hormone).
We have also taken our supplemental oxygen mixture a step further, we have infused pure oxygen in a refreshing Mint aroma to further enhance cognitive function Naturally. Now all that’s left is, for You to got out there and be amazing. You Got This!
