Most humans need 50 percent more oxygen than they get for optimal functioning and health, according to a 2009 report by Bio-Tech News. Some proponents believe stabilized oxygen molecules in liquid supplements can replenish your oxygen supply and promote the efficient metabolism and increased energy needed for maintaining a healthy weight and active lifestyle. However, insufficient scientific evidence exists to prove that liquid oxygen increases your oxygen supply, reduces weight or provides any health benefits.

Liquid Oxygen

Stabilized liquid oxygen contains stabilized oxygen molecules that are identical to the oxygen molecules used in the respiration process, according to the Stabilized Oxygen website. Recommended formulas contain dissolved oxygen in a solution of small amounts of table salt, or sodium chloride, trace minerals such as iodine and zinc and distilled water. Proponents of liquid oxygen tout its many health benefits including its ability to fight infections, remove toxins from the body, relieve headaches and reduce jet lag. You can obtain liquid oxygen supplements from numerous suppliers on the Internet.

Weight Loss

Stabilized liquid oxygen is thought to be immediately absorbed into the bloodstream and transported to all bodily tissues to boost metabolism and increase energy. Metabolism, the biochemical process the body uses to convert nutrients into energy, combines oxygen with the calories you consume to produce energy. The added energy obtained from a liquid oxygen supplement can help you to burn calories and lose weight because your stamina and endurance improve when you participate in aerobic activities such as brisk walking, jogging and running, as well as strength training activities like weight lifting. Liquid oxygen is supposed to increase your recovery from strenuous exercise by 50 percent and is gaining popularity among athletes, sports figures and weight trainers, according to Bio-Tech News. Stabilized liquid oxygen also can replenish the oxygen deficiency of the fatigue and shortness of breath that impede your ability to stay active and lose weight.

Dosage

For general health benefits take 20 drops of stabilized liquid oxygen three times daily in pure water. During athletic training or periods of intense exercise, take 20 to 30 drops daily, and to increase your stamina and energy, take 20 drops three times per day, according to the Stabilized Oxygen website. One stabilized liquid oxygen supplier, Aquagen, recommends taking 15 to 20 drops of its stabilized liquid oxygen product in a glass of water three times daily, 30 minutes before eating or two hours after eating.

Considerations

According to a 2000 report by Bio-Tech News, stabilized and pH2 balanced liquid oxygen formulas containing sodium chloride are considered safe and nontoxic when taken orally or placed on the skin. However, some formulas on the market contain sodium chlorite, another form of salt, which can cause serious harm when in contact with skin and mucus membranes. In addition, Bio- Tech News recommends not using liquid oxygen products containing hydrogen peroxide. Consult your doctor before using any stabilized liquid oxygen product for weight loss.
