How significant is oxygen in the air for our organism?

Breathing – the elixir of life. Since time immemorial. Did you know that the whale, the largest mammal in the world, uses an incredible 90% of the oxygen available in air? The most powerful and intelligent living organism in the world, the human being, utilises a mere 25%. A small amount, especially when you consider that even this 25% may be further restricted by increasingly influential environmental factors. Our modern lifestyle can stress the human organism with up to 80,000 harmful substances each and every day. This places enormous pressure on our body’s detoxification processes. Hardly anyone is aware that just 3% is eliminated through the intestine, 7% through the bladder, 20% through the skin and an enormous 70% is through breathing!

An adult inhales and exhales around 14 to 18 times a minute at rest. This is more than 21,000 breaths per day overall. We absorb around half a litre of air with each breath. This equates to 8 litres per minute. This is a total of ca. 12,000 litres of atmospheric air per day. Of this amount ca. 2,500 litres – around one quarter - of the air contains oxygen. And we exhale around 1,900 of the 2,500 litres unused. In short, we only metabolise ca. 600 litres of oxygen in the air into the valuable energy which our organism needs in order to survive.

Our body is made up of ca. 60 billion cells. 10 million new cells are created every second, while 10 million old cells die off. In every single one of these cells up to 1 billion controlled biochemical reactions can take place each second. This is quicker than any computer processor. The main energy supplier used by the body to achieve this is oxygen in the air.

Some 5% of the oxygen in our inhaled air reaches the bloodstream. This is just about sufficient for a healthy person. Any additional percentage can help the body’s cells to perform better. That is why Airnergy is not exclusively used for chronic disorders and can be used in professional sport, for example, to aid regeneration and in particular for preventive purposes.

The German biochemist, doctor and physiologist Otto Heinrich Warburg won the Nobel Prize in 1931 for discovering that, in simple terms, all cells will become diseased if they are unable to make the best use of oxygen in the air. The Airnergy principle is based on these findings.
