Increase Oxygen with Frosted Breathwork

A study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition investigated the effects of peppermint oil on exercise performance. The researchers found that inhalation of peppermint oil vapor significantly increased respiratory function & oxygen supply to the muscles, promoting better endurance and performance. 

Peppermint oil is widely known to increase circulation and blood flow. Rubbing Frosted Peppermint oil into head, neck and chest before a run not only clears nasal passages and airways, but acts as a cooling agent to regulate body temp.
