I read an ad in a health magazine about Oxygen you can by as a supplement, Im not sure if its in tablet or powder form or what. But the ads claim that it gives sports people an energy boost. And Ive heard advertized on the radio about Oxygen water!!

Has anyone tried these products, do they work and if you haven't would you give them a go,

Going by just the print ads its seem as if theyre just a gimmick to me.

Interested in your thoughts

There is a shop in Perth ( i think in subi? ) that sells all sorts of oxygen and oxygenated products. Apparently you can even get flavoured oxygen.
Sounds like a gimmick to me as well Sea Tea. i don't actually know anyone who has given it a go but.

hey I have heard from a friend that you can get free oxygen.....its not a trick or a ploy and its not like down loading MP3 music thats 'free'.

Apparently all you have to do is take a big deep breath and you get some of that oxygen stuff straight away. The key is not to breath to deeply while behind a bus or car with exhaust problems and def do not take a deep breath while getting triangled after you have been wrestling with the person for a couple of hours (phewie).

I have heard about it and that it has amazing effects.....not too sure if I would try it.....

UBT I like youre reply, but isn't there a saying along the lines of

if you dont pay for it you dont appreciate it

Rolling Eyes Gee, but seriously, air in a bottle, what next, certainly seems crazy
The corporate and commercial world never miss a trick do they. I remember peopel saying " one day we'll have to pay for air"

Secret I hope this idea doesn't get taken up by government coz I certainly coudlnt afford to live then.

still think that pure oxygen is a bit of a gimmick......but I have also heard from people that it has amazing effects.

Like Shrek says, Everyone needs air to breathe.

I remember a long while ago, a women claimed that she could just live on air alone. No water, no food, no deodorant....
Needless to say that she ended up being admitted to hospital and was proven wrong

I think of that saying everytime that you get your hands inside my collar to joke me....

Reading the Sunday times yesterday after the comp and came across a BIG COLOUR advert for Oxygen Pills......I mean not just one type, about 2 or 3 different types of pills to take.....

Might get some for the guys that fight in the comp next time, some of them looked like they really needed the extra Oxygen.

Like UBT said, just take a deep breath ...........

wasnt there a gimmick a few years back about a clip you stuck on your nose to allow you get more air or something. i remember seeing a few sports people wearing them but dont recall ever hearing they really worked.

I actually did a little research into the oxygen pill.....

I have found that the its not the oxygen that you take in but more about the transferance rate of it into the blood stream and something about the CO2 levels etc etc....

basically said that I doubt if it would work....

I forgot where I read it, but a study conducted by scientist to find out effectiveness of bottled oxygen water on a group of runners.

Performance improvement: None.

Recovery improvement: None.

These bottled water is eeeexpensive, bros. I'd rather have pineapple juice.

Of course, two guys same size = about the same lung capacity.

When you train and get better cardio you don't inhale a greater volume of air (i.e. your lungs don't get huge!).

What you do tho is increase the body's ability to utilise the O2 that you inhale.
