Boost oxygen faqs

  • 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?

    As pure Oxygen is also odourless and tasteless, aromas provide the user with a different perception of use. In addition, the Aromatherapy fragrances we use can give the user additional benefits beyond what traditional unflavoured oxygen gives. All our aromas are made from 100% pure organic essential oils.

  • How does oxygen help with sports and exercise?

    During its time of need, the body’s response to maintain blood oxygen levels is to breathe more heavily to increase oxygen intake. When the body does not receive enough oxygen from the outside, it starts to use internal sources for its oxygen. This is called Anaerobic Respiration. Muscle fatigue and cramping occur when glycogen in oxygen-starved blood turns into lactic acid. Adding oxygen to the blood inhibits the production of lactic acid, and helps the body clear out any lactic acid that is already present. Recovery is easier with supplemental oxygen.

    Medical studies past and present have shown that inhaling oxygen before and during physical activity enhances endurance performance and can cut down on recovery times. BOOST Oxygen is the perfect way to energize and optimize your workouts at the fitness centre. It will help you overcome lethargy and help you achieve your peak performance.

  • The can is so light – is it empty?

    Oxygen gas is virtually WEIGHTLESS. Our sealed cans are very LIGHT, but they are full. The weight of a full can feels empty as the Oxygen inside has no discernible mass. The advantage is that they are very light and convenient to carry around.

  • How many inhalations are in a can?

    It all depends on how deeply you breathe. Our 4oz cans contain over 2 litres of Oxygen. This equates to approximately 50 seconds of continuous Oxygen Flow. Customers report enjoying anywhere between 15-50 inhalations of varying length. 

    Our 22oz cans contain over 6 litres of Oxygen, which equates to approximately 150 seconds of continuous flow. Customers report enjoying anywhere between 75-150 inhalations of varying length.

  • How much boost oxygen should i use?

    This depends widely on your circumstances, body weight, type, etc.
    If you are working out in the gym and want to recover more quickly between sets, 2- 3 inhalations between sets when needed might do the trick. 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 NOT for Medical or Prescription 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 4oz cans, remove tamper-evident plastic and remove cap. Place up to the mouth, press trigger firmly and inhale deeply. Hold oxygen in lungs temporarily before exhaling for best results. Repeat as desired. It is recommended to repeat this procedure 3-5 times to feel the effects of Oxygen.

    For 22oz cans, remove tamper evident plastic, insert mouth into the mask, press trigger and inhale deeply. Hold oxygen in lungs temporarily before exhaling for best results. Repeat as desired. It is recommended to repeat this procedure 3-5 times to feel the effects of the Oxygen.

    Our ergonomic mask was designed and patented by Boost Oxygen to provide a convenient apparatus that can be operated by using only one hand. It also directs flow efficiently into the mouth or nose.

“...Insufficient oxygen means insufficient biological energy that can result in anything from mild fatigue to life threatening disease.The link beweeen insufficient oxygen and disease has now been firmly established. The more oxygen we have in our system, the more energy we produce.”

Dr. W. Spencer Way Journal of the American Association of Physicians

“I tried Boost Oxygen for the first time at the opening round at Brands Hatch while competing in the Porsche Club Championship. What a difference it made! I had my best ever qualifying and race result as well as my fastest lap time. I will certainly be using Boost Oxygen in the future.”
