Ultimate Travel Guide: Fighting Jetlag with Oxygen

Jet Lag Fighter: Pure Recreational Oxygen

Long flights really take it out of you, but recreational oxygen can give it back. When you're on a big trip, the last thing you want is to be stuck in the hotel room fighting the inevitable fogginess, fatigue, stress and mental delay that comes with jet lag. Oxygen is a great way to give your body the boost it needs to restore your body's depleted oxygen levels to normal, healthy levels after a plane ride so you're alert, energized and ready to breathe in the sights.

Research has found that supplemental oxygen can increase both immediate and delayed word recall while significantly improving attention (Moss). Here's how to use oxygen while you travel: Before you board your flight, breathe a few deep breaths of Oxygen Plus (O+) oxygen to help provide your body with the pick-me-up it needs to fight stuffy and polluted airplane air. Once you land and arrive at your destination, pick up some O+ product and take several deep breaths to help you stay alert and regain mental focus.

Supplemental oxygen has also been proven to significantly improve cognitive performance in healthy adults (Scholey). If you're used to touching down after a long flight and feeling completely drained, it may be because the stale airplane air depleted your body's normal, high-functioning oxygen levels. Restore your energy and vitality with O+ oxygen and kick jet lag to the curb.

Recreational Oxygen on Commercial Flights

Please note that recreational oxygen is currently prohibited in carry-on and checked baggage. O+ can ship pure recreational oxygen straight to your destination so that you have it as soon as you arrive – if it's not already waiting for you in your hotel's spa, restaurant, or minibar.
