"Super-Oxygenated" Water Fails Test

Thursday, 13 April 2006 12:00 AM

Super-oxygenated water, which supposedly boosts athletic performance by providing extra oxygen to the muscles, doesn't appear to do much of anything, according to a study from Austria.

Dr. Valentin Leibetseder and his colleagues at the Medical University of Vienna test the effects of both the special water on 20 young bicycle riders over a two week period.

The investigators measured maximum physical performance and maximum oxygen consumption at peak performance.

Drinking super-oxygenated water had no significant effect, the researchers found. The riders performed at the same level, whether they had been drinking the super water or plain water.

The Australian investigators said the super water may exert a placebo effect that the study wasn't designed to measure.

The report appears in the International Journal of Sports Medicine.
