Which Organ System Help Deliver Oxygen To Body Cells
O2: Affects the body by increasing the delivery of o2 to the tissues that need it. This is only effective when there is o2 deprivation state as in hypoxemia of many causes or sepsis or in some poisoning to reverse the occupation of the poison on the hemoglobin so o2 can be carried and delivered. It can kill anaerobic bacteria. In other cases, it is all without proof of need. O2 is kreb's cycle. ...Read more

I recently quit smoking. What supplements help increase oxygen to my red blood cells and get the carbon monoxide out of system. To restore my health?

Many things: Not sure why you think you need this, but to get more oxygen first check you levels of red blood cells (RBC's)& hemoglobin- if abnormal correct as your RBC's transport oxygen. If RBC's are too big (high MCV) they have difficulty squeezing thru microcapillaries. High blood viscosity also interferes with microcirculation. See if fibrinogen is high.Thin blood with curcumin & fish oil. See my comment: ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
