Airnergy in Sport

 

The AIRNERGY Oxygen Therapy device is a portable, compact machine for use in the home and clinic that creates 'Energised Air'.

 

Who uses Airnergy Oxygen Therapy?

 

Jenson Button: “I use the Airnergy system on a regular basis before all practice sessions, qualifying and races in order to facilitate my performance.”

 

Heinrich Popow attributes his Gold medal in the 100 metres at the 2012 London Paralympics to Airnergy.

 

Oxygen supply to the body's cells plays the decisive role

Oxygen is required to produce energy every single second of our lives in each of the more than 60 trillion cells in our body.

Humans can live for several weeks without food, several days without water, but only a few minutes without oxygen. Humans are not very efficient in utilising oxygen.

The human organism is able to utilise only around 1/4 of the 21% oxygen in the air we breathe. 3/4 of the oxygen is exhaled again without being utilised. This is an enormous energy potential that has never been properly exploited before!

Many athletes notice that after periods of intensive training they experience a phase of over-training (oxidative stress) and become prone to illness. The immune system is affected and weakened by the higher oxygen intake. The psychological stress that athletes are subjected to, for example,before a competition, additionally affects the immune system.

Optimum utilisation of the oxygen in the air we breathe for all forms of sport, whether competitive or leisure, plays the key role in maintaining your health and increasing performance. The air that we breathe is an energy source that is most readily available to athletes. It is first choice when it comes to optimising performance.

In a study, scientists from the Fitness Clinic of Helsinki showed that after just a ten-day application of AIRNERGY marathon runners increased their oxygen consumption by 7 per cent and also improved energy production by around 8 per cent. Endurance athletes normally have to train long and hard to achieve 2 to 3 per cent improvements in their performance.

At the same time carbon dioxide and lactate production was reduced by 7 per cent – an indication that the respiratory air therapy optimises aerobic metabolism.
