What is Intermittent Hypoxic Breathing?

Intermittent Hypoxic Breathing (also known as Intermittent Hypoxic Training) consists of breathing low oxygen air from a stationary position (seated) in a series of intervals interspersed with sea-level breathing.  Typical protocols consist of breathing 5 minutes low-oxygen air, followed by 5 minutes of breathing sea-level air.  Combined with our E-100 Altitude Generator, users can enjoy the benefits of IHB from the comfort of their own homes.
