The human body requires oxygen to live and function. When one is deficient in this element, it can be replaced chemically. Did you know the body can replenish oxygen levels through exercise and nutrition? Eating foods high in fiber, low-fat diet with high amounts of fruits and vegetables can improve blood oxygen levels. I am promoting the natural way.
