Are You Suffering from an Oxygen Deficiency?

Did you know that 90 percent of our nutritional energy comes from oxygen and only 10 percent is derived from the food we ingest? Oxygen is fundamental. Colorless, tasteless and odorless, oxygen is the supreme element—a primary nutrient without which life would not exist. We can live without food for weeks and without water for between three to seven days. We can only live for between three and six minutes without oxygen before we begin to suffer brain damage, and ultimately death. Oxygen is critical to life.

The body literally starves without oxygen. Each of the body’s estimated 50 to 100 trillion cells requires oxygen for each and every one of its metabolic processes. You need oxygen to combust foods to provide energy for the heart, brain and cells. All of the functions of our body are regulated by oxygen. The ability to think, feel, move, eat, sleep and even talk all depends on energy generated from oxygen. Our brain needs oxygen to process information.  Our body uses oxygen to metabolize food and to eliminate toxins and waste through oxidation.

Oxygen energizes cells so they can regenerate and provides vital cellular flexibility.  In fact, all of our organs need a great deal of oxygen to function efficiently. That's why it must be replaced on a moment-to-moment basis.

Oxygen is also one of the most significant antiaging components. The more we saturate our cells with stabilized oxygen the lower the rate of wear and tear on our bodies. Oxygen’s natural ability to catabolize or oxidize bacteria, fungi and viruses plays a very significant role in preventing degenerative diseases and sustaining the natural immortality factor of the cell. In fact, were we to take any fungus, virus or pathogenic bacteria and put these invaders in a petri culture dish, then drop stabilized oxygen on them, they would all die on contact.

The challenge, then, is clear: to not only get oxygen into our bodies, but directly into the cells where it can fight pathogens, burn up toxins, and support our overall internal health. And, we want to bring oxygen into the body without creating the harmful free radicals considered to be a major cause of premature aging.
The Oxygen Insufficiency Disease
Most diseases occur in the absence of sufficient oxygen. Without sufficient oxygen, cells simply cannot function properly and disease can set in. In the 1940s, Nobel Laureate Dr. Otto Warburg stated emphatically that all disease is ultimately related to oxygen starvation. More recently, Dr. Stephen Levine, a molecular biologist and nutrition researcher, said the same thing: hypoxia, or low oxygen levels in the cells, results in disease.

Initial symptoms of oxygen deficiency may include overall weakness, fatigue, circulation problems, poor digestion, muscle aches and pains, dizziness, depression, memory loss, irrational behavior, irritability, acid stomach, and bronchial complications. When the immune system is compromised by a lack of oxygen, the body is more susceptible to opportunistic bacteria, viral, and parasitic infections, colds, and flu. Oxygen deprivation can also trigger life-threatening diseases.
The Factors Behind Oxygen Depletion
With millions of square miles of oxygen-regenerating rainforest already destroyed and huge amounts of precious oxygen-producing sea algae destroyed by pollution, our great sources of oxygen have been severely compromised. And, research scientists have determined that unless concerted global efforts are made to protect the atmosphere, our atmospheric oxygen concentration levels will continue being reduced by about 0.8% every 15 years or so. There are other factors that can cause oxygen depletion:
Emotional Stress: produces adrenaline and adrenal-related hormones, and which utilize more oxygen;
Physical Trauma: reduces circulation and oxygen supply to many cells and tissues throughout the body; and
Infections: which use oxygen to fight bacteria, fungi and viruses. Use of drugs also depletes our oxygen supplies at the cellular level. Today, noted authorities stress that most diseases, especially yeast or fungal infections like candida albicans, occur most frequently in any oxygen-poor environment in the body. Oxygen deficiency may be the single greatest cause of illness and may be the starting point for the loss of the immune system and the beginning of feared health problems such as cancer, leukemia, HIV, seizures, nerve deterioration and candida.
Ideal Oxygen Levels
The average concentration of oxygen in the bloodstream is between 60 percent and 70 percent. At this level people generally feel good, with average energy levels. However, if the oxygen level drops below 60 percent, disease begins to take over the management of the cells as they become overwhelmed by pathogens. The minimum concentration of oxygen needed to sustain life is about 52 percent, but at this level a person is far less than vital. Optimally, we want to keep our oxygen supply around 80 percent so that we can maximize our energy and feel terrific. At that level, we can detoxify the body, wipe out infections and boost our health, and vitality.
Maintaining Healthy Oxygen Levels

Cellfood is an excellent healing oxygen supplement.

Through a combination of good nutrition, exercise, and a healthful the average person can enhance the way their body accesses and utilizes oxygen. Additionally, I like a liquid supplement called Cellfood®, which has the unique ability to split water molecules within the body, releasing oxygen and hydrogen at the cellular level. It doesn’t create free radicals, but instead bonds with any free radicals found in the body, transforming them into stabilized oxygen.


In my experience, Cellfood® provides the deepest and most abundant cell oxygenation of any supplement I’ve tried. Additionally, it contains 129 trace minerals, enzymes, amino acids and electrolytes, thereby providing cellular nutrition.

Cellfood® has been shown in laboratory tests to destroy harmful bacteria and pathogens on contact without harming the body’s beneficial intestinal flora. Other benefits of Cellfood® include: the normalization of pH balance; strengthening of the immune system; support for lung and breathing function; improvement in brain function, alertness and concentration; and it increases the absorption of other supplements taken in the same 24-hour period. 

Cellfood® is made from all-natural, plant-based ingredients, and is yeast-free and gluten-free. I’ve found in my clients that as they introduce more pure, stable oxygen into their system, it’s a matter of time before their body responds with new levels of vitality, energy, endurance and, most of all, profound wellbeing.
