Since 2003, there have been new studies, theses and papers that regularly confirm the importance of the Bol d’air and its applications.


Béatrice Mercier, PhD in Life Sciences and the Biochemistry of Cellular Oxygenation, has gathered together comprehensive documentation on cellular oxygenation and the role of terpenic essences and the advantages of the tetravalent form of oxygen generated by the Bol d’air Jacquier®.
Her thesis, supported by the University of Burgundy and ratified by a prestigious jury has led to new thinking about this unique method of tissue oxygenation.
She is continuing her studies of the Bol d’air® with teams of researchers in several European countries.

Scientific studies carried out at the University of Dijon demonstrate the role the Bol d’air® plays in increasing the body’s capacity to control free radicals, in vivo and ex vivo. It’s not a question of ingesting a specific anti-free radical agent but more to do with the way in which the body’s overall capacity of resistance is strengthened when the Bol d’air® is used.
The Bol d’air® method is oxygenating but non-oxidizing unlike some other methods that are used to increase oxygen which carry the risk of causing the cells oxidative stress.

One of the foremost causes of ageing is the formation of free radicals.
We already know that using the Bol d’air® generates all-round free radical protection but in 2011 a new study showed that levels of glycated haemoglobin (high producers of free radicals) were reduced by the action of the Bol d’air®.

In 2003, Italian researchers, nutritionists, endocrinologists and clinicians P. De Cristofaro, A. Pietrobelli and N.C. Battistini, spoke about the role oxygenation played in the field of obesity: their studies, presented at the International Congress in San Diego USA (classified FASEB), the Congress on Obesity in Helsinky and the World Congress on Obesity in Prague, show that using the Bol d’air® reduces both body fat and increases lean body mass significantly when compared with a control group. Since then the le Bol d’air® has been used in specialist centres in Italy as a natural supplement during the treatment of obesity and metabolic pathologies.

Professor De Cristofaro has shown that during constant effort tests, a sports person’s respiratory quotient (RQ) can diminish significantly after a 6 minute respiratory session. This indicates that the Bol d’air® is acting on the metabolism and helping to use up body fat. This is of considerable interest to sports people and to those who are overweight.

Docteur Andrea Lino, a specialist in sports medicine and Professor of Human Physiology at the University of La Sapienza in Rome, has observed the remarkable effects of the Bol d’air® on explosive force, muscular elasticity and endurance amongst swimmers.

ESP Consulting, an independent research laboratory, has evaluated the effects of Bol d’air® inhalations on healthy sports people. Training had a very noticeable effect on both groups in terms of metabolism and respiration, but there was a notable improvement in the Bol d’air® users in respect of at least three criteria:

  • After 10 weeks’ training, maximum breathing capacity during exercise went up by 2,5% for the control group and by 9,3% for the Bol d’air® group.
  • After the same lapse of time max VO2 went down by 2,8% for the control group and went up by 5,5% for the Bol d’air® group.
  • Exhaustion levels after training went down by 9,5% for the control athletes and decreased by 36,6% for the Bol d’air® group. This improvement shows that the Bol d’air® is a great aid to recovery after strenuous exercise.
    That’s why sports people at all levels use the Bol d’air® in their training programmes.

A scientific team in Marseille headed by Eric Sérée has developed new advances in research on the Bol d’air Jacquier®.

Regular respiratory sessions (3 minutes Aéro, 5 times per week for 5 months) have triggered certain genes in mammalian brains. These genes stimulate the organism to produce certain elements (sirtuins and in particular, Sirt-1) that are extremely interesting in terms of well-being and health.

These molecules are implicated in the fight against inflammatory processes, apoptosis (cell death), oxidant stress and cell aging and also in improving resistance to stress and stimulating the production of new mitochondria, the cellular powerhouses essential for providing energy. They are involved in metabolising cholesterol and may protect against atheroma, the formation of atheromatous plaques.
