Using Oxygen to Boost Marathon Performance

In 2015, a study was released that proved that elite Kenyan runners have greater brain oxygenation during running, which could account for their higher performance during long-distance runs (Cerebral Oxygenation). The study suggests that a higher level of oxygen equals a higher level in performance. The brain needs energy to thrive, and many running experts agree that optimum oxygen levels can impact one’s running performance. Oxygen Plus (O+) recreational oxygen is an effective way to boost marathon performance in its ability to restore a runner’s body’s oxygen levels back to normal levels while training and competing.
