Free radicals are highly reactive, unstable molecules that cause cell damage. An overabundance of free radicals can harm our DNA, eventually resulting in muscle breakdown, exhaustion, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer.

Incorporating oxygen into your workout routine improves exercise tolerance without triggering further oxidative stress. View study
