The MGM Grand’s restaurant, Olio!, reports that about 78,000 customers a year visit their oxygen bar. The myths and rumors about pure oxygen treatments are well-circulated; it can clear the mind to study, increase endurance, boost energy and lessen the effects of hangovers.
When you’re hungover, your body has just taken a hit from the alcohol, plenty of which is still in your blood. You’re still breaking down the alcohol and the side effects of this are the hangover symptoms you’ll be feeling.
Oxygen plays an important part in any kind of recovery. When your liver is breaking down the alcohol into acetaldehyde, it takes 3 oxygen molecules to break down 1 alcohol molecule. The acetaldehyde is then subsequently broken down into water (excreted in your urine after being removed from your blood) and also into carbon dioxide which is expelled when you breathe out. To simplify the explanation, if you’re loading your body with oxygen, it expedites the breakdown of alcohol and expels it from your body much faster.
