Performance Enhancement

There are tons of performance enhancing drugs and methods out there, from steroids to stimulants to beta-blockers. Most come with a slew of nasty side effects, such as anxiety, aggressiveness, insomnia, nausea, impotence, abdominal discomfort, addictiveness and the possibility of kidney failure and cardiovascular collapse.

But what if we told you that one of the most effective performance enhancing remedies is actually the simplest and most natural of them all?

More oxygen — the best tool for performance enhancement

Sportspeople, dancers and fitness fans are often looking for ways of enhancing their physical performance, endurance and resilience to injury. CEOs, managers and entrepreneurs search for methods of improving their focus, memory and mental clarity, and optimising their performance in business. And biohackers use all kinds of techniques to maximise their potential and get the most from their body and mind.

But, although it makes many forms, the overarching concept of performance enhancement is the same for everyone. It’s about striving to excel at whatever it is you do.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a way of giving your body 10-15 times more oxygen than normal, and is a proven performance enhancement tool. Here are some specific examples of how it works and why:

  • A sportsperson’s performance is limited by the amount of energy their body produces. HBOT boosts energy and promotes faster recovery from fatigue by increasing the amount of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the body. ATP is the body’s battery, the molecule that keeps everything going.
  • Injury, illness and generally diminished physical health also limit a sportsperson’s performance. HBOT accelerates tissue repair by hastening the growth of new blood vessels and increasing eightfold the amount of stem cells in the body. It also strengthens the ability of the white blood cells to kill infections. In other words, HBOT gives the body’s capacity to heal itself a powerful boost.
  • The performance of executives and entrepreneurs is limited by lack of sleep, poor concentration and ‘brain fog’. By flooding the brain with much more oxygen than it gets normally, HBOT optimises your mental faculties, promoting sharper clarity and focus, better memory and improved performance in business.
  • HBOT users report feeling rejuvenated, refreshed and ready to take on the world, which is testament to the power of oxygen.

Big league sports stars use HBOT

Countless professional sportspersons are openly using HBOT to reduce their injury recovery time, improve their endurance and resilience, and boost their performance on the pitch.

David Beckham fractured his foot and, despite an estimated recovery time of 7 weeks, returned to play in 3 thanks to HBOT. Just 5 sessions of HBOT led endurance runner Ellan Laquaniello to improve her performance by 35%. And a major premier league football club, which spent 85% of the 2014-15 season in a relegation position, recorded a 37% increase in performance after 4 weeks of HBOT. Of 8 further games, the team won 6 and drew 2, avoiding relegation for the rest of the season.

So if you’re a professional footballer, athlete, dancer, fitness fan, biohacker, CEO, manager or entrepreneur and you’re looking for ways of enhancing your performance, see what Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can do for you.

How does HBOT work?

HBOT is a simple, pain-free and non-invasive way of giving your body more oxygen. It involves entering a private, purpose-built, state-of-the-art chamber and breathing in pure oxygen at increased atmospheric pressure.

Most clinics operate a multi-person chamber offering only 1.4-1.6 times the normal atmospheric pressure. Here at the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Centre in Chelsea, London, we offer single-person chambers at 2 times the normal pressure. This allows patients to read, relax, meditate or listen to music without disturbance or interruption, while the pressure conditions increase your oxygen intake by 10-15 times.

To people familiar with putting substances in their bodies that artificially boost their strength, speed and endurance, extra oxygen probably sounds like it won’t do much — if anything. But that comes from a fundamental misconception of the power of oxygen.

Why is oxygen so powerful?

Oxygen is essential for life. It powers every single one of our body’s vital functions by fuelling the production of energy and the growth and regeneration of cells. Without it, we’d be dead in a matter of seconds.

Oxygen’s life-sustaining properties mean that giving our body more of it enhances all of our vital functions. Extra oxygen improves circulation, hastens injury recovery, reduces inflammation, boosts immunity, enhances neurological functioning, and wards off a multitude of medical conditions.

Extra oxygen “upgrades” us.
