Ultimate Smart Drugs Guide - Usage for Exams and Studying

Trade in your energy drinks for something healthier and more effective for your late-night study sessions: Big hits of pure recreational oxygen, offered by the health-and-wellness CPG company, Oxygen Plus. Exam season isn’t just busy, it’s also extremely stressful and mentally taxing. When you give your mind, and restore your body, with oxygen levels to thrive, you can better absorb information and stay more focused so you can finish the semester strong.

You may have picked up on the new “smart drug” trend popping up around the country, especially by big execs in Silicon Valley. Not only does the trend encourage the consumption of synthetic drugs and supplements — such as caffeine, amino acids and synthetic compounds — that can cause headaches, insomnia, anxiety, depression and upset stomach, but it also includes potentially dangerous practices, such as fasting, that are said to help improve cognitive function (Kendall).

A healthier trend more recently gaining traction with Silicon Valley execs is breathing pure recreational oxygen. Side-effect free and power-packed with natural mental and cognitive benefits, Oxygen Plus is becoming a centerpiece of board rooms and employee lounges where creative movers and shakers are working long, hard days.

Benefits of Oxygen for Studying

According to a study in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, the use of supplemental oxygen increases both immediate and delayed word recall and significantly improves attention (Moss). Oxygen works by providing your brain the fuel it needs to function at its peak. When you’re deficient in oxygen, you may experience a lack of alertness, memory and mental focus. Additionally, oxygen can help you remember and perform better on test. Breathing supplemental oxygen has been proven to help people perform better on recall tests and reaction time (Scholey).

Pure recreational oxygen can help you:

  • Improve concentration, alertness and mental clarity
  • Sustain energy and vitality during long study sessions
  • Decrease stress
  • Diminish your body’s exposure to stale, indoor and/or polluted air

The best part about getting a boost with pure recreational oxygen, like Oxygen Plus, is that it doesn’t come with the unfriendly, inevitable crash associated with unhealthy energy drinks. Rather, pure recreational oxygen helps you feel more like your best self again: Mentally present, refreshed and clear. Take a few deep breaths during your next all-nighter or use it when you wake up to ensure that you’re focused, calm and ready for the big test. Stash Oxygen Plus’s O+ Elevate Pack in your backpack to de-stress, boost your memory or diminish the effects of that stale library air.
