Italian-American model and actor Fabio Lanzoni recently revealed that he sleeps in a hyperbaric chamber to avoid aging. The 62-year old is recognized for maintaining his evergreen looks and physical fitness.
In a recent interview with People Magazine, the romance novel cover model shared that sleeping in a hyperbaric chamber “reverses the aging process”. Fabio Lanzoni also mentioned that he is extremely careful about his diet.
He reportedly stays away from drugs, alcohol and sugary food to maintain his fitness. The model is also active at the gym and recently lost nearly 30 lbs.
Meanwhile, he has also continued his search for a suitable life partner and wants to have his own children:
"There is quantity, but I want quality. I still want to have kids."
According to the Mayo Clinic, hyperbaric oxygen therapy allows people to inhale the purest form of oxygen in a compact environment. The therapy reportedly helps heal several ailments, including critical wounds, carbon monoxide poisoning, anemia and difficult infections, among others.
The hyperbaric chamber reportedly has increased air pressure as compared to normal air pressure. This helps the lungs to take in purified oxygen under regular air pressure.
The hyperbaric oxygen therapy reportedly takes place for two to three hours but Fabio Lanzoni has not revealed how long he stays inside the chamber.
