What Limits Our Oxygen?

Air pollution.

Sitting in enclosed spaces such as motor vehicles and office buildings where the windows will not open.

Many man-made products give off noxious gases and fumes. Synthetic materials such as carpets and upholstery, heavy metals, cleaning agents, solvents, glues, and pesticides are but a few. 

Stress causes muscles to tighten and breathing to become shallow and or internally uncoordinated. People stop breathing for awhile without realizing it.
Constricted muscles and blood vessels reduce the capacity for oxygen to circulate in the body and nourish it. 

Posture. Good posture is absolutely necessary for optimal breathing. 

Ergonomics.  What we sit in and sleep on either helps or hinders our oxygen intake 

Poor diet. Diets that contain plenty of raw vegetables and fruits, which are high in both water and hydrogen peroxide oxygen content. They are also naturally alkaline which helps maintain optimal cellular function. Unfortunately the standard diet in America is highly acidic and full of both additives and preservatives, which reduces the stores of oxygen in the body.

Lack of breathing and movement. Unless we do some form of movement, not necessarily what you might think of as "exercise", our lungs deteriorate between 10-25% per decade, inviting inadequate levels of oxygen.

Cigarette smoke is particularly lethal. Smoked or inhaled secondhand, cigarette smoke decreases the hemoglobin in the blood and, as a result, the blood cannot carry as much oxygen to the cells. It also paralyses the cilia, tiny “hairs” that sweep the lungs of any debris. This, in turn, causes the lung to produce mucus that covers the cilia preventing them from doing their job. 

Diseases of the lung and circulatory systems can greatly reduce the oxygen the body receives. These include sinusitis, emphysema, bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia, tuberculosis, COPD, hardening of the arteries, and anemia.

Aging can cause the various systems of the body to be less efficient. At the cellular level, cells simply become weaker from their exposure to toxins and pollutants. The cell’s ability to utilize oxygen is reduced. Through tension and lack of movement, the lungs can lose their elasticity, and the lung capacity diminishes. On average, the amount of oxygen one can take in during vigorous exercise declines 1% a year beginning at age thirty. This is often caused by not offsetting the tensions and constrictions of the exercise itself.
