The Science Behind Oxyfix
In this 5 Part Series, Dr. Blue will be sharing with you an in depth look at the ingredients that make up our unique high altitude Oxyfix Formula, starting with Organic Germanium.Organic Germanium, or bis carboxyethyl germanium sesquioxide 132, is a trace element and intrical ingredient in Oxyfix. Organic Germanium has an electromagnetic attraction to oxygen, and it acts as a transporter of oxygen to the cells and throughout the body.
Germanium was first discovered in 1886. In 1948 the electron transfer properties of Inorganic Germanium were discovered which led to it’s use in the first semiconducter transister. Organic Germanium was first synthesized and manufactured by Dr Kuzihiko Asai, a Japanese engineer, and his team in 1967 at the Asai Germanium Institute.
Octacosanol has several potential benefits. Preliminary studies show promise in the treatment of Parkinsons disease. Studies have also shown that it may inhibit cholesterol production, help reduce stress related sleep issues and help regulate blood sugar. Of particular interest are the studies that have shown it increases physical endurance and reduce fatigue.
DMG has a plethura of uses. It is used to relieve various behavioral conditions and touted to relieve symptoms of ADHD and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It has been shown to improve speech in Autism patients. It helps with brain health and cardiovascular health. It helps strengthen the immune system and reduce stress among other benefits.
Ginger has many benefits and is a highly nutritious herb. One of it’s most well-known benefits is it’s ability to relieve nausea. This is one of the symptoms people experiencing high altitude sickness have and so ginger has been added to our Oxyfix formula to help relieve this symptom. It also contains Cox2 inhibitors (cyclo oxygenase inhibitors) These enzymes inhibit prostaglandins which cause pain. Consequently it is a natural pain reliever. Pain is something often associated with altitude sickness.
Studies have shown that Eleuthero increases the bodies ability to handle stress from heat, noise, motion, exercise and increased workload. It also normalized mental alertness and work output. Most of these stresses are increased with an increase in altitude and decrease of oxygen. Eleuthero was added to the Oxyfix formula as it addresses many of the symptoms related to altitude sickness.
