We know that Oxycise! is great for increasing energy, losing weight, lowering cholesterol, improving heart health, and decreasing stress, but did you also know that increased oxygen can help your brain? I don’t know about you, but I could sure use some extra mental power right now.
A study done by the University of Northumbria in Newcastle, England backs this up. “We found a dose of oxygen or glucose can improve performance on tasks that require great mental effort,” says Andrew Scholey, director of the Human Cognitive Neuroscience unit.
The brain may only take up 2 percent of your body’s weight, but it consumes more than 20 percent of its energy. And the harder your brain is working, the higher its demand for energy in the form of oxygen and glucose.
Judith Wurtman, a cognitive scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston, says the concept of oxygen boosting the brain’s performance only makes sense.
“Everyone has experienced the lethargic effect of riding in a plane with poor air circulation for four hours. It makes you mentally foggy,” she says. “But I don’t think breathing pure oxygen is a practical solution. Who wants to go into an exam with an oxygen tank on their back?”
As a logical solution, she suggests you take a more natural approach to increase your oxygen intake. Hey, why not Oxycise?
More than one Oxyciser has told us how Oxycise! helps to keep their mind clear and free of “brain fog.” Tracey shared, “My thoughts are more vivid. The extra oxygen is really nourishing my brain and I can easily tell!”
Our O! at the Office workouts are great for taking short breaks during the day. Next time you’re feeling like you need a little mental boost, remember this study, and take a break with Oxycise!
