Well, that must surprise you,right? Okay, this was the theory I first encountered when I was reading The Immortals of Meluha by Amish Tripathi. Though, I would really not say great things about the literature in the book, there are quite a few social concerns addressed in the book which actually make a bit of sense. Well, if you are interested, I shall definitely go through the book and collect those excerpts.
But, for now, let us talk about how oxygen is killing us without delving into much of biology! And, also see how Nutrova Collagen + Anti-Oxidants Nutritional Supplements help combat the damage.
What Happens when you Breathe in Oxygen?
Once you inhale oxygen, it travels through the air pipe to the left and right lung. The lungs have bronchioles which end up in balloon-like air sacs called the alveoli. These air sacs have thin membranes of capillaries through which the blood flows and the gas exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide happens.
When you inhale, the oxygen moves across the thin membranes in the alveoli to the blood where it is absorbed by the haemoglobin and at the same time, the blood releases carbon dioxide into the air sacs to be breathed out of the body.
Freshly oxygenated blood is carried from the lungs to the heart which pumps blood around the body through the arteries. Once the oxygen has been used up in the tissues of the body, the blood returns, through the veins, to the heart.
