Many of you might not be aware of the existence or vitamin O, however the manufacturers of vitamin O wanted to make their product a cure for almost anything.
Unfortunately, vitamin O is not a vitamin and even though the manufacturers of such so called “vitamin” claimed it to be a liquid from oxygen that could be used as medicine, they were charged by the United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for making unsupported claims about their product.
In May 2000, they agreed to pay $375,000 to the FTC to settle these charges. Their claims were that vitamin O is beneficial for improving concentration, memory and alertness; calming the nervous system; easing depression, irritability, unexplained hostility and dizziness; relieving arthritis, muscle aches and pains, asthma, bronchial problems, emphysema and lung disease, sinus infection, diabetes, body weakness, as it turns out, vitamin O is more likely to be nothing more than water and minerals.
There is little scientific evidence all the claims that vitamin O contains ingredients that release oxygen; however people use vitamin O for conditions such as infections, joint pain, stomach problems, depression, and many others. There has been insufficient scientific evidence for the uses and effectiveness of vitamin O and the following conditions:
⦁ Aches and pains.
⦁ Improving alertness.
⦁ Improving concentration.
⦁ Improving immune function.
⦁ Improving memory.
⦁ Lung disease.
⦁ Mouth sores.
⦁ Premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
⦁ Sexual problems.
⦁ Increasing energy.
⦁ Other conditions.
While there is no scientific information and what actually vitamin O does nor there is scientific prove whether it is a vitamin or not, or if it has any side effects, we suggest as with most supplementation women that are pregnant or breastfeeding should consult their family physician as to the probable interactions with vitamin O and their current medications, as well as their current medical condition.
As with many other supplementations the appropriate dosage or vitamin O would depend on a number of factors such as the user’s age, their health, the current vitamins, and prescribed medicine that they’re taking as well as several other conditions. Keep in mind there is not enough scientific information to determine what would be the appropriate range of doses for vitamin O.
