Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment that involves breathing 100% oxygen in a pressurized environment. The increased pressure allows the body to absorb more oxygen, which can have therapeutic benefits. HBOT works with the hypoxia inducible factor-alpha, which is good for longevity.
