Would you care for a glass of oxygen?


Not quite the hexagonal water that our fearless publisher wrote about long ago, but it still promises to give you a boost of oxygen.

What is it? Itís OGO Water, or 'The Breathing Water," as its manufacturer has dubbed it. From the Netherlands, OGO has an oxygen concentration that is 35 times higher than regular water. The burst of oxygen in each bottle of OGO will give your O2 saturation a boost. Our less-than-scientific tests resulted in a consensus that OGO did definitely give panel members a quick pick-me-up feeling.

Available in still, sparkling, and Flower Power (lightly flavored with elderflower and lychee) varieties, itís sure to please almost every palate.

OGO appears to have made its way to Australia and the UK, and will debut soon in the US, courtesy of Verve Brands, LLC.

The stomach cannot absorb oxygen. Why would it, when you've got two perfectly good lungs for doing just that?

Anything you feel from this stuff is placebo.


I'd LOVE to try this. Anyone try it before or after a workout?


The short version, you could get more oxygen by taking one deep breath.

The long version: I am confident that the "quick pick-me-up feeling" was merely the placebo effect in action.

The issue here is not that "the stomach can't absorb oxygen," since the stomach can absorb oxygen albeit much less efficiently than lung tissue.

The sticking point is the VOLUME of oxygen delivered in each bottle. Normal room air is 21% Oxygen by volume. With each casual breath, about 0.5 liters of room air are inhaled. A deep breath 2.5 liters of air is inhaled on average. Thus an average breath gives you 0.1 liters of oxygen, and a deep breath gives you 0.5 liters of oxygen. Even the half liter bottle of "oxygen water" were 99% oxygen and 1% water, the most oxygen the drinker could get from the bottle would be 0.5 liters of oxygen ie the same amount as a single deep breath.

The only good reason to drink this oxygenated water is for the taste.


OGO is now available online: www.BuyOGO.com
