WHAT IS BOOST OXYGEN?

Boost Oxygen is 95% oxygen and 5% aroma and ambient air. Boost Oxygen is all-natural and contains no caffeine, calories or any other unnatural stimulants.

WHY DO YOU USE AROMAS?

Boost Oxygen comes in natural and three aromatherapy fragrances (all natural ingredients) – pink grapefruit, peppermint and menthol. Aromatherapy is the art and science of using naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit.

HOW DOES OXYGEN HELP YOU WITH SPORT AND EXERCISE?

During periods of high intensity physical activity our bodies work hard to maintain blood oxygen levels. When heavy breathing does not produce enough oxygen, the body will begin to source the oxygen internally through a process known as Anaerobic Respiration. Cramping and muscle fatigue when the glycogen in Oxygen-starved blood transforms in to lactic acid. By introducing more oxygen the blood is able to inhibit the production of lactic acid and expel any existing lactic.

THE CAN IS SO LIGHT - IS IT EMPTY?

Oxygen gas is virtually weightless. Boost Oxygen sealed cans are very light, but they are guaranteed as full. The weight of a full can feels empty as the Oxygen inside has no discernible mass. This weight advantage makes Boost Oxygen cans convenient to carry around.

HOW MANY INHALATIONS ARE IN A CAN?

It all depends on how deeply you breathe in. Our 4oz cans contain approximately 45-50 inhalations and our 22oz cans with a connected mask contain approximately 120-150 inhalations. Some individuals take normal 1 second breaths, others take longer 3 or more second inhalations. It’s a matter of personal preference.

HOW MUCH BOOST OXYGEN SHOULD I USE?

This depends on your circumstances, body weight, type, etc.
If you are working out in the gym and want to recover quickly between sets, 2- 3 inhalations between sets. Same for the high altitude, stress and ‘second wind’ applications. If you are really hung over, jet lagged, you may need more than this.

The attractive benefit to oxygen is that the effects are fairly immediate – oxygen is admitted into the blood stream directly, so you should be able to gauge after the 3-5 inhalations if you need any more.

IS OXYGEN FLAMMABLE?

No. Oxygen gas alone is not flammable, contrary to popular belief – (otherwise our 20.9% oxygenated atmosphere would have burned up a long time ago!) Oxygen is not a fuel itself, but when combined with a fuel and ignition, it can serve to accelerate the chemical reaction.

BOOST OXYGEN STATES THAT IT IS NOT FOR MEDICAL OR PRESCRIPTIONS USE. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

Although both Boost and medical oxygen are produced in the same manner, recreational Oxygen is designed for healthy people looking to supplement and improve different facets of their life, and is not intended for use by anyone who has asthma, lung ailments or heart problems or as a substitute for physician-prescribed or life-saving oxygen.

Breathing oxygen-enriched air may help your condition, however, before taking Boost Oxygen we would recommend you consult your specialist medical practitioner. Boost Oxygen is not a substitute for physician-prescribed or life-saving oxygen.

HOW DO I DISPOSE OF THE EMPTY CAN?

As our cans are recyclable, please place in your recycling bin.

WHAT ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE?

For 4 ounce cans, remove tamper-evident plastic and remove cap. Place up to mouth, press trigger firmly and inhale deeply.

For 22 ounce cans, place mask under nose and over mouth. Press trigger down to activate flow. Breath deeply through the mouth.

CAN I TAKE BOOST ON A PASSENGER AIRPLANE?

Cans are not permitted on passenger planes.
