Why does air from Live or Extreme O2 sometimes smell like chemicals after I begin exercise?

Users often notice “foul odors” that appear to be com­ing from the sys­tem. These odors often smell like chem­i­cal con­t­a­m­i­nants short­ly after the user begins to exercise.

These users are smelling their own breath, as Live O2 enables the body and cells to release a wide range of envi­ron­men­tal and meta­bol­ic tox­ins. Exhaled breath often smells of ben­zene, formic acid (death), propane, fun­gus, yeast, and the like.

This detox­i­fi­ca­tion process has sev­er­al steps and often begins very quick­ly, often with­in the first minute of use as:

  1. User increas­es heart rate and rich oxy­gen reach­es the tis­sue with­in seconds;
  2. The user’s cells exploit the rich oxy­gen con­di­tion to release stored volatile tox­ins into the blood;
  3. The blood car­ries the tox­ins to the lungs;
  4. The tox­ins evap­o­rate into the air already in the lungs;
  5. The user exhales the air;
  6. A small amount of exhaled air, 1–2 cubic inch­es remain in the mask;
  7. The user re-breathes a tiny amount of this tox­in con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed air in the next breath
  8. And smells a small frac­tion of the tox­ins exhaled in the last breath;
  9. The user pre­sumes the “tox­ins” are from the sys­tem instead of from their own body because the process hap­pened so quickly.

LiveO2 and ExtremeO2 assure air puri­ty with three dif­fer­ent systems:

  1. All air enter­ing the sys­tem is fil­tered through HEPA com­pli­ant filters,
  2. Then through zeo­lite beds with mol­e­c­u­lar fil­ters so tiny that only oxy­gen mol­e­cules can pass;
  3. Finally, air exit­ing the sur­gi­cal grade plas­tic lined reser­voir is fil­tered by char­coal filters.

This three part sys­tem assures the clean­est pos­si­ble air to the user — many times clean­er than room air. The only pos­si­ble source of con­t­a­m­i­nants is the user’s breath.
