    AFAIK, the only way to take supplemental oxygen is through inhalation of the gas. Oxygen as a solid or liquid is impossible to take because of its extremely low temperature.
    It's also extremely paramagnetic, which is kind of neat to me

    I've always had a dream of being rich and having a hyperbaric chamber filled with oxygen saturated air. Not too much oxygen though, just much more concentrated than our normal air. Imagine working out in such a room!

    EPO is supposed to put more oxygen in your blood, but probably not what your looking for.

    I like the idea of a hyperbaric chamber.

    It has its downsides - such as the risk of toxicity - but a carefully monitored and screened session can go a long way to healing wounds and treating sepsis.

    Just a thought here....

    WHat about if I had blood taken a month ago, and decided to put it back in (Im assuming that in a month my body would regenerate its lost blood cells).
    Wouldn't that create a serplus?? ( EPO ish)??

    EPO raises hemocrat...what you just said, xtra, is true. Although the effects only last a few days. EPO is amazing and there are many different varients out there. A couple of which can not be detected on a test. Very cool, but very very expensive.

    yeah that would be blood doping..probably only temporary though, I am sure your body would reach homeostasis fairly quickly.

    yes, what i said. blood doping works, and works great, but after a few days to a week your body starts getting rid of the extra red blood cells.

    Try Rhodiola..it raises blood o2 levels and buffers against lactic acid. Works extremely well for me having to deal with altitude...I live at 7000'. Plus its nice for mood.

    Cheap too.

    600-900 mgs of the 6% rosavin content stuff should suffice. Just FYI, higher doses can be sedating, it's considered to be one of those herbs where more is not necessarily better...but a great supp either way.

    good to know...i would have ended up over doing it like i plan to with Citrulline... i have heard from many ppl and also many bikers that rhodiola is great. i like the way its supposed to help you deal with stress...aka extremely hard workouts. (8x600), rough.

    It's really pretty unbeleivable for endurance, lactic acid buffering et cetera. I use it for mood support but have done some high altitude, hard core hiking on it..it blew me away that I could be that unconditioned and still stroll on up the trail going from 4500' to 7500' like it was nothing.

    I put some of my endurance racing friends on it..they love it stacked with cAMPHI and have shaved minutes off of their total times.
