Free radicals are chemical compounds that have an unpaired electron. They are produced in the body continuously as a byproduct of normal metabolism and inflammation.
Free radicals are not necessarily harmful. Your immune system uses free radicals’ reactive nature to kill harmful bacteria during infection. However, an imbalance in the body’s use of free radicals leads to oxidative stress, which can be dangerous for the body.
Oxidative stress can lead to several health problems like diabetes, hypertension, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, etc. Therefore, you need to find solutions to reduce oxidative stress as much as possible.
How LiveO2’s Therapy Helps Reduce Oxidative Stress
LiveO2’s Oxygen Therapy has been clinically shown to decrease inflammation, which reduces free radicals’ formation. Several studies have been conducted tracking oxidative stress markers in hyperbaric patients with no rise in oxidative stress markers.

Conclusion and Recommendations
Overall, LiveO2’s oxygen therapy can drastically help reduce the negative impact of free radicals. For good measure, we also recommend a diet high in antioxidants, which is generally good for your health and can offset the increase in oxidative stress from daily training.
