Research on the benefits of supplemental oxygen abound. Get the science behind the O+ breath.

Fatigue has been reported by several studies as one of the most common symptoms experienced by people worldwide. A Harvard University study concluded that 77% of Americans cite lack of energy as a top health concern4.

Oxygen is the key ingredient in the production of energy.


Here’s how oxygen works in the human body (reference chart on right):

      1.  Oxygen breathed into the lungs. Food broken down in stomach and intestine.
      2.  Oxygen carried by the bloodstream to muscle. Nutrient absorbed by the bloodstream.
      3.  Oxygen and nutrients transported to cells.
      4.  Oxygen and nutrients used by mitochondria to produce ATP.
      5.  ATP provides energy to cells.

Stated differently, every breath you take converts to energy. Human cells use nutrients from food and oxygen to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy source that fuels cell function. If your cells receive too little oxygen, they produce less energy. If your cells need more energy, they use more oxygen. That’s why your breathing rate increases when you exercise.

When energy drops, performance drops.

Conditions that can reduce your body’s oxygen levels – or low-blood-oxygen levels (“LBO”) symptoms – include air pollution, jet lag, breathing stale air that has less than the normal 20-21% oxygen, higher altitude, intense workouts and sports activities, overexertion, alcohol consumption and stress.

Oxygen Plus (O+) helps people who suffer from fatigue and tiredness caused by low-blood-oxygen-levels, as well as healthy individuals who work and play hard. Three or four breaths of O+ oxygen help restore your body’s oxygen levels to normal, healthy levels, elevating your energy and enhancing cognitive performance1,2 at home, work and play.

    A persistent feeling of fatigue is one of the most common health concerns in this country, accounting for 10 to 15 million doctors visits per year.

    77% cite “lack of energy” as the top health concern.

    At cruising altitude, airline cabins have lower-than-normal air pressure and oxygen levels. Blood oxygen saturation during commercial flights can be 5%–10% lower than normal.

    Airplane cabins are not pressurized to sea level. Passengers on long-haul flights are therefore exposed to reduced oxygen pressure for periods of up to 18 hours at a time.
