When you head to your next party, consider bringing along a portable canister of Oxygen Plus (O+) oxygen as your trusted wing man/woman. Sure to create a buzz (pun most definitely intended), the portable, pocket- and purse-size oxygen products from Oxygen Plus provide an engaging conversation-starter. A refreshing ice-breaker, the subtle yet enigmatic act of inhaling a few hits of O+ oxygen at a bar or party will definitely attract the like-minded, wellness-minded person.
O+ oxygen boosts the body’s energy, providing a shot of zest before, during and after a big event or night on the town. Moreover, due to the functional health benefits of oxygen, Oxygen Plus can help you party longer. Breathing recreational oxygen helps the body metabolize alcohol more efficiently. That’s why inhaling oxygen while you drink alcohol can help you feel better the morning after you’re painted the town red. Moreover, breathing Oxygen Plus the next morning can help your body break down the chemicals that remain in your body from alcohol consumption. With revived energy, the hope for faster recovery, and a unique party tool to help elevate the atmosphere of your night out, it’s no wonder Oxygen Plus is quickly becoming the must-have party guest.
Still not a believer? Let’s dive into the science of oxygen as it relates to alcohol in the body.
Normally, when alcoholic beverages are consumed, the metabolism of alcohol depletes the normal store of oxygen in the body. By supplementing the body with oxygen while you drink, one of the substrates necessary for an effective process of metabolism is reinstated (Science Daily). It is the job of the liver to break down the alcohol molecules so they can be metabolized and eliminated. To achieve this breakdown, the liver requires three molecules of oxygen per one molecule of alcohol - a 3 to 1 ratio - to synthesize acetaldehyde, which ultimately becomes water and carbon dioxide for elimination. This process can only work efficiently with sufficient levels of oxygen. Without sufficient levels of oxygen, the process slows down - and in this oxygen deprived state - the potentially toxic byproducts of alcohol remain in your system longer, leading to what is medically referred to as a hangover (U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism).
While recreational oxygen products do not provide the hydration necessary to prevent or combat some of the symptoms of overindulgence, consuming pure oxygen such as Oxygen Plus can assist in breaking down alcohol’s harmful substances into harmless substances that are ready to be eliminated. Ultimately, that makes Oxygen Plus the best remedy for a night on the town.
If medical, scuba or other large, bulky oxygen tanks of years past were the only ways to get pure oxygen, it might seem difficult to let oxygen help you party smarter. Thankfully, portable oxygen canisters such as Oxygen Plus make it easy to bring the canned oxygen with you to any party. The lightweight, handheld canisters that fit in your bag enable you to party hard and party smart by using Oxygen Plus before, during and after you party. And hopefully, you’ll feel like you again, so you can make an incredible contribution at work the day after.
