Athletes can benefit from ozone therapy for both performance and recovery. Ozone therapy can increase an athlete’s performance by boosting the oxygenation of tissues while escalating your production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which leads to a speedy recovery and yields more energy. Ozone slows down the cells’ anaerobic fermentation and helps reduce the build-up of lactic acid. It helps prevent aching muscles after strenuous activity.
Studies have shown that the steam sauna ozone treatment, “can induce physiological adaptations that can help increase endurance, the capacity to build muscle mass and increase brain function.”
It increases blood flow to your muscles, thereby minimizing the reliance on stored local glycogen during strenuous exercise.
Blood flow to your heart increases reducing strain during the same workload. In one study, male runners who engaged in an average of 20-30 minute steam sauna ozone sessions twice a week immediately after an intense run, resulted in a 32% increase in the distance they could run before reaching the point of exhaustion.
- Boosts blood oxygen levels
- Strengthens your immune system
- Helps improve performance
- Improves muscle flexibility
- Improves circulation
- Helps heal injuries
- Improves recovery rate
- Reduces lactic acid
- Soothes and relaxes sore muscles
If used regularly, steam sauna ozone therapy will reduce recovery time between races and improve your recovery time.
