Pros & Cons of
Oxygen Party Bars
Do they live up to their claims?
you have been to Las Vegas lately and seen the new trend in Oxygen Party
Bars, you have probably wondered how safe they are and if they live up to
their claims. Their claims are mainly to help with head aches,
hangovers, migraines, stress, fatigue, cramps, jet lag, heat exhaustion
and minor aches and pains. In most part these claims are true, and
the effect is surprisingly fast, about 3 to 5 minutes. However if
you are young and healthy, you probably don't need oxygen as your blood is
probably carrying the maximum amount of oxygen to the cells of your body.
if you are not a healthy 21 years
old, and suffer from some of the above conditions, you will be amazed at
how effective an Oxygen Party Bar will reduce these symptoms. Most
Oxygen Party Bars are dispensing oxygen via a nose canula at a maximum
rate of 4 liters per minute of 95% oxygen. When dispensed through a
nose canula the oxygen is combined with the natural air you are breathing
through your nose and the percent of oxygen delivered to the lungs is less
than 95%. The lungs transfer the oxygen to your blood and your blood
carries the oxygen to every cell in ones body causing an invigorating
effect; and the person experiences a natural euphoric high, similar to a
runners high. It is clear headed, legal, and healthy for the body.
On a longer term basis, oxygen
flushes impurities and toxins (Free Radicals) out of the blood which are
recognized as a major factor in causing many forms of cancer. If you
are young and healthy, your body does this naturally. As you age,
and your normal blood oxygen level declines; you are more susceptible to
the causes of cancer. Oxygen does not cure cancer, but it can
prevent some forms of cancer from starting and your recovery from
treatment can be greatly enhanced.
Oxygen is also has an
anti-inflammatory benefit. Oxygen accelerates ones healing
abilities. When one pumps iron, you are advised to wait a day before
working out again. With oxygen, the muscles heal faster and your can
work out more regularly. Many believe that oxygen will help people
recovering from chemotherapy and surgery and speed their recovery.
Weight loss is another unheralded benefit of
Oxygen Party Bars. As we age, our metabolism slows down and we tend
to gain weight. Concurrently with this aging process, our blood
oxygen level declines. By raising the oxygen levels in the blood,
the body burns calories more efficiently and we can reverse some of the
weight gaining process that accompanies aging. If one watches his
diet they can experience weight loss on a slow natural level when combined
with a 10 minute weekly sessions of oxygen.
The 95% level is important as that
is the point where oxygen becomes a regulated gas and a doctors
prescription is required. Levels above 95% are classified as medical
oxygen and levels below 95% are classified as recreational oxygen and do
not require regulation. The oxygen concentrators used by oxygen
party bars are designed for recreational oxygen use only.
The Federal Food, Drug and
Act says that any type of oxygen used by people for breathing and
administered by another person is a prescription drug. However the
American Pharmaceutical Association which regulates prescriptions does not
require a doctors prescription unless more than 95% oxygen is
administered. It seems only natural a cutoff level is appropriate,
because our atmosphere is recognized at 21% oxygen and that does not
require a prescription to breath.
