oxygenated water

Post by richcoolerearth » Sat Jul 23, 2005 10:45 pm

I just wanted to know if our digestive systems absorb the dissoved gases in water. Does the stomach and such make use of it in any way? If not then I will be even more content with flat water, since I'm already dubious of the beneficial possibility of extra oxygen.

It's probably a hoax. It's not like your body is oxygen deficient. Here's an article on oxygen bars where ppl go to breath pure oxygen.

I'll bet the mucus in your stomach prevents any actual gas exchange.

Hmm....that's an interesting point too. I guess the mucus might prevent gaseous exchange.

Well if it's not higher priced than you've got me stumped ;).
My neighborhood store was selling a variant called "structured water" I think I ruined their stockpile by shaking the bottle.

lol. I'm guessing it is higher priced and just trying to get more moolah. If it's not higher priced, then we may be wrong about the topic.

Thanks; and for the rest of the replies, I guess.

I did read somewhere that more oxygen exists in a breath than a highly concentrated bottle of gassed water, so the effect would be insubstantial.

i think u can't just breathe in oxygen, cuz ur brain detects the amount of carbon dioxide in ur blood and then tell ur body to breathe. i also heard that hospitals don't just give pure oxygen to the patients, sometimes they mix in some carbon dioxide, to make sure that u breathe on ur own.
