Why Everyone Should Be Monitoring Their O2 Levels

Cells in your body need two things to function, ATP, the molecules your body generates from the food you eat that allows energy to be transferred within the cells, and Oxygen (O2).  You need both, ATP and O2 to keep your brain and body alive.  O2 is critical not just for your cells, but most importantly your brain function.  The brain requires at least 20% of both the ATP and O2 that your body produces to survive.  The brain is your master controller, meaning it tells the rest of the body what to do, which is quite critical for you to function daily.  Recent research is suggesting lack of O2 to the brain can to dementia in later years.  A lack of O2 is particularly detrimental to the body at night when your body and brain are literally repairing and regenerating cells. So, if you have an unknown O2 capacity issue, that could be altering your brain function and repair processes, which could lead to early stages of dementia going undetected.  This can happen even in your 20’s so it is critical to monitor your O2 levels especially at night.  Many fitness trackers will not note O2 drops throughout the night. What does a “drop in O2” mean? Basically, this is a dip where your body is getting significantly less oxygen.  Below is some of the most recent research in this health condition in Neuroscience News.
