Breathing air with reduced oxygen content (high altitude) resulting in beneficial effects on athletic performance and general health.

Mountain air for rejuvenation, training and treatment
Life depends on how much oxygen we use and distributing effectively. We are like burning candles or rotting fruits, the more oxygen we inhale the sooner "we get burnt up" or disintegrate, that is, the faster we get older. This is the law of life.
Intermittent hypoxic training is a method that can make the body use oxygen effectively and this way slow down the disintegration of our body. This method consists of the patient repeatedly inhaling air via special altitude equipment for a few minutes at a time whose oxygen content is equivalent to the air at an altitude of 3500-5800 meters above sea level.
What are the effects
The main immediate effects are:
- A general relaxation facilitating psychological and mental balance. This is most important for the relief of stress
- Strengthen of the body's natural defense mechanisms
- Desintoxication effects with releasing water retention
How does it work
- IHT encourages hemoglobin to bind with the enzyme named 2,3 - diphosphoglycerate which makes the release of oxygen into tissue from hemoglobin significantly easier.
- IHT decreases any toxicity. Increases cytochrom 450 in the liver.
Even breathing 10 min is effective.
- IHT The immediate effect is an improvement in circulation the relaxation of the smooth
muscles of capillaries, as well bronchioles, small and large intestines.
Hypoxia involves the formation of capillaries.
- IHT greatly decreases free radical activity.
- IHT encourages the formation of nitric oxide (NO), which kills cancerous cells (see list of articles below).
- IHT and controlled hypoglycaemia facilitate the repair process of the cells of the
nervous system and increase the number of endothelin B-receptors.
