MINNEAPOLIS, MN, November 4, 2019 – With a growing number of health-conscious consumers seeking wellness brands promoting purity and sustainability, Oxygen Plus (O+) is proud to have led the charge since its inception in 2003. The pioneer of recreational oxygen in a can, and creator of America’s first lightweight, portable oxygen canisters, Oxygen Plus provides the nutrient’s all-natural wellness benefits in attractive, handheld, recyclable canisters that dispense oxygen on-demand with the push of a button. The oxygen is gently inhaled through the nose or mouth, and delivered through the lungs into the bloodstream to boost oxygen levels that may have been depleted from the strains of modern life, which can include stress, travel, exercise, alcohol, inactivity and pollution. With a well-established list of science-backed, holistic benefits, including improved physical performance (Sperlich et al., 2011), increased mental focus (Moss et. al., 1998) and enhanced cognitive functions (Scholey et. al., 1999), topping off depleted oxygen levels with Oxygen Plus helps active, wellness-minded consumers quickly get back to optimal levels. People can now benefit from the functional properties of oxygen – while toting a pure, high-quality and environmentally-thoughtful product in hand.
The full suite of the company’s products is unique in North America, and perhaps the world, because Oxygen Plus products are manufactured in a clean room at a FDA-registered facility. Sourced from 99.5% Aviator Breathing Oxygen (ABO) – the same oxygen pilots breathe on airplanes (FAA, 2019) – Oxygen Plus contains pure, scent-free oxygen. The ABO source oxygen found in Oxygen Plus’s “Pure Recreational Oxygen” products (which is ~97% when inhaled) is directly transferred or “trans-filled” into its aluminum canisters in a clean room using highly-controlled processes similar to those of medical devices and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Also, because they are flavor- and scent-free, breathing Oxygen Plus products do not have the risk of potentially dangerous aromas or additives – a major concern with vaping and vape pens recently covered in the news for their harmful side effects.
In addition to offering the highest standards of quality and purity, Oxygen Plus is committed to the environment, donating a dollar amount for every canister sold toward causes that are solving the air pollution crisis. Headquartered in the heartland of the Midwest in Edina, Minnesota, Oxygen Plus products are quality-controlled, filled and assembled in the U.S.A. Two of its products – the O+ Biggi and the O-Stick, which is part of the O+ Elevate Pack – are sourced and 100 percent made in the U.S.A. The majority of the company’s product components are sourced from North or South America, with a minority originating from Italy. For quality, durability and safety, all Oxygen Plus canisters are made of pure aluminum, which are 100 percent recyclable after use.
“As an entrepreneur and former marriage and family therapist, I know our physical health and our environment can greatly impact numerous facets of everyday life,” said Christine Warren, Founder and President of Oxygen Plus. “It’s important that the tools in our wellness routine – and how they are made – are not only beneficial, but are inherently wholesome in their makeup, function and approach. This is why we place purity and sustainability at the core of everything we do at Oxygen Plus.”
The brand’s signature O+ Mini, O+ Skinni, O+ Biggi and O+ Elevate Pack offer consumers a convenient, side-effect-free source of energy and recovery for optimal health and wellness. All natural, with no calories, no carbs and no crash, Oxygen Plus products may be purchased online at oxygenplus.com, Amazon.com and at select retailers.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, October 30, 2019 – Well known for providing relief from the effects of jet lag and higher elevation, Oxygen Plus (O+) has offered its portable, lightweight canisters of pure recreational oxygen to wellness-minded travelers and outdoor enthusiasts since its inception in 2003. In its ability to quickly restore depleted oxygen levels to optimal levels – on-demand, with the push of a button – the sports oxygen cans supply a portable, effectual oxygen boost for the frequent traveler, avid hiker, skier and mountain biker.
Now, grocery retailers in some of the biggest party cities and most prominent beach towns are introducing Oxygen Plus as the new, smart wellness tool for an enhanced fitness and party experience. Consumers from Miami to Los Angeles are breathing Oxygen Plus day and night to improve athletic performance and ease the effects associated with drinking too much alcohol. The market growth aligns with the messaging in the company’s current advertising campaign: “O+ works for more than just altitude.”
Specialty grocer Roxy’s Market & Café was one of the first multi-state retailers to recognize the consumer demand and sea level benefits met by Oxygen Plus. The brand’s champion products – the O+ Mini, O+ Skinni, and O+ Biggi – have been elevating active individuals living at and visiting higher elevation at Roxy’s Big Sky location for five years. With repeat purchases that helped establish Oxygen Plus as a lifestyle product, Roxy’s expanded availability to Santa Barbara County at Roxy’s Montecito, a destination known locally for its fresh produce, fine wines and spirits, and now, portable oxygen.
“I’ve found that the product is particularly helpful to fitness-minded consumers and athletes, as well as tourists traveling to Big Sky from destinations all over the world, who are seeking to get acclimated to our elevation,” said Josh Treasure, General Manager at Roxy’s Big Sky. “Oxygen Plus is a great company to be involved with. They provide a great product.”
Oxygen Plus canned oxygen provides an all-natural, science-backed solution for those seeking a natural energy boost. Olympic athletes and football players have supplemented with oxygen for years because they understand the importance of maintaining optimal oxygen levels for enhanced endurance, speed and recovery (Wilbur). For the partier, research shows breathing pure oxygen, such as Oxygen Plus, helps disperse the lingering effects of alcohol in the body for a more speedy recovery, replenish oxygen levels to optimal levels for peak brain performance (Moss), and improve oxygen absorption for optimal functionality of the body (Sheahan). Similar to popular oxygen bars and IV wellness clinics, Oxygen Plus oxygen canisters offer athletes and partygoers an effective, yet more convenient, way to boost oxygen levels to normal, healthy levels – so they can think, feel and perform their best.
“Through our retail venture with Roxy’s Market & Café, Oxygen Plus is increasingly accessible to consumers in the Big Sky and Montecito communities who are seeking an all-natural energy and recovery solution,” said Christine Warren, President and Founder of Oxygen Plus. “We’re part of the $45 billion U.S. natural food and beverage product category (Strailey), with demand and sales stemming not just from the mountain tops – but from roof tops, as well.”

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, October 7, 2019 – Prestigious retailers located at higher elevation, including Stein Erikson Lodge in Park City, UT, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Teton Village, WY and Roxy’s in Big Sky, MT, are offering canisters of Oxygen Plus pure recreational oxygen to outdoor enthusiasts wanting to feel and perform their best at high altitude. Some people are challenged adjusting to higher altitude, and others need to work to maintain peak mental and physical performance at elevation. This applies whether one is exploring Yellowstone National Park, shredding the slopes of Deer Valley or biking along the Appalachian Trail. Oxygen Plus (O+), the pioneer of portable recreational oxygen in a can since 2003, is providing these retailers, and wellness-minded consumers, a trusted, science-backed solution.
Assembled, quality-controlled and filled in the U.S.A., Oxygen Plus offers a line of sleek, lightweight canisters containing pure, breathable oxygen that is effortlessly inhaled through the mouth or nose. Free of any additives, flavors or scents, Oxygen Plus allows users to boost oxygen levels on demand. At higher elevation, usually around 5,000 feet above sea level, inhaling the purest form of recreational oxygen can help supplement the diminished amount of oxygen that reaches the bloodstream, which occurs due to higher atmospheric pressure which enlarges oxygen molecules. With each deep breath of Oxygen Plus, outdoor enthusiasts can quickly, and more readily, combat the effects of altitude, which can include fatigue, shortness of breath and mental fogginess. Manufacturing North America’s smallest-size, most sleekest medium-size and largest-size canister, the company’s O+ Mini, O+ Skinni and O+ Biggi oxygen canisters, which, respectively, contain 24, 50 and 220 breaths of pure recreational oxygen, helps enhance energy levels, increase stamina, improve physical performance, and more quickly recover from vigorous exercise or a lively après ski.
For more than 16 years, Oxygen Plus has helped hikers, skiers and other active, wellness-minded persons make the most out of every adventure with its design-winning portable oxygen in a can.
“Oxygen Plus allows thrill seekers, adventurers and anyone who loves the great outdoors to focus on the fun and forget about the side effects of altitude, alcohol and extreme physical exertion,” said Christine Warren, Founder and President of Oxygen Plus. “We are proud of our long history as the leading supplier of portable recreational oxygen, which keeps active and health-minded individuals at peak performance levels. It fulfills our mission to make a significant contribution to the well-being of humankind.”
In addition to Oxygen Plus’s fully recyclable, flavor- and scent-free, O+ Mini, O+ Skinni and O+ Biggi canisters, the brand’s flagship O+ Elevate Pack offers environmentally-conscious consumers a reusable O-Stick dispensing shell and two starter O+ Refills which are ideal for work, home and play.

Minneapolis, MN, October 2, 2019 – Oxygen Plus (O+), the pioneer of pure recreational oxygen since 2003, announces its flavor- and scent-free portable oxygen canisters are available in Houston-based Spec’s Wines, Spirits & Finer Foods. Spec’s offers this new, healthy alternative for natural energy and recovery – that is effortlessly inhaled through the mouth or the nose with the push of a button – at a growing number of locations throughout Texas. Spec’s now carries the brand’s O+ Mini, O+ Skinni and O+ Biggi canned oxygen, providing an all-natural, energy and recovery tool that can boost oxygen levels, helping to enhance the party experience and improve overall wellness. Spec’s wine, beer and spirit patrons can use this dependable, science-backed resource of oxygen, which is hailed for its beneficial properties, to replenish the mind and body during and after alcohol consumption.
As the informed consumer knows, drinking alcohol depletes the oxygen content in the bloodstream. The use of supplemental oxygen, like Oxygen Plus, increases the amount of oxygen to the body's cells, serving as an aid to help lessen, and recover from, the negative effects of alcohol consumption.
Committed to product quality, the environment and health, Oxygen Plus’s wellness-focused company pairs well with Spec’s mission to “keep everyone in good spirits,” thanks to the store’s high-quality food and beverage offerings. “Given the type of store that we are, Oxygen Plus is a unique product to sell,” said Peter Gryska, Director of Grocery Operations at Spec’s. “There’s not a lot out there on the market like it.”

MINNEAPOLIS, April 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- On April 12th - April 14th, an estimated 150,000 festival goers will journey to California's Colorado Desert to experience live performances from today's biggest acts at the 2019 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. In the midst of massive crowds, record high temperatures, day drinking and non-stop partying, attendees may experience a long list of health concerns – from extreme fatigue to dehydration. Coachella will debut a new, portable way to restore and replenish the body, with an all-natural resource that has been hailed for its beneficial properties – oxygen. With the help of pioneering wellness company, Oxygen Plus (O+), this year's festival will offer pure, breathable oxygen to keep attendees at optimal oxygen levels.
Offering an alternative to energy drinks and supplements, Oxygen Plus will provide its signature O+ Biggi canister, containing pure recreational oxygen for "ALL DAY ENERGY" ®. Each lightweight canister features a mask that allows users to easily inhale oxygen through the nose or mouth. A science-backed solution to the effects of poor air quality, physical fatigue, mental fog and alcohol, O+ will offer bottled oxygen at 10 locations: near the festival's main stage and at various recovery areas.

Atlanta Falcons NFL players Ricardo Allen (safety) and Kemal Ishmael (outside linebacker), who helped turn the franchise into NFL elite, rely on Oxygen Plus for energy and recovery – both while training and on game days.
Oxygen Plus’ handheld canister, with an easy-to-use mask/trigger oxygen dispenser, makes it the perfect off-the-bench oxygen boost for athletes – both in and beyond the NFL. Both players expressed their enthusiasm for Oxygen Plus on their social media accounts recently: Ishmael said, “all gas no breaks” and Allen stated, Oxygen Plus “gives me a boost of energy and helps me recover faster.”
For professional NFL athletes like Allen and Ishmael, both 26, taking care of their bodies in order to maintain peak physical performance is crucial for training and competition. The intense performance of athletes increases the body’s demand for oxygen. Breathing and heart rates increase to supply that demand. Muscles that do not receive enough oxygen convert glucose into lactic acid instead of energy, causing muscle fatigue. Athletes want to avoid an oxygen shortage because lack of oxygen interferes with the body’s optimal energy creation process.
A recent study found that endurance athletes who were administered oxygen at 99.5%, and had a 90-second recovery period, received an increased SpO2* recovery time1. The same study showed inhaling an increased form of oxygen during exercise can reduce inflammatory responses post exercise.
This sports-science relationship is why athletes are discovering that supplementing with pure oxygen, like Oxygen Plus, is a game-changer that helps increase endurance, performance and recovery.
Knowing what it takes to get to The Big Game, Oxygen Plus and the Falcons stars are excited to expand their partnership during the off season.
Oxygen Plus (O+), the pioneer and world leader of the growing category of portable recreational oxygen, has teamed up with Black Star Transportation, LLC, the luxury transportation service company, to offer Minnesota-bound football fans an elevated way to travel around the Twin Cities for The Big Game.
The two Minnesota-homegrown companies saw a natural way to help the estimated one million football-happy travelers through a unique week-long partnership. Black Star and Oxygen Plus offers those traveling in Minneapolis/St. Paul during the week of The Big Game a convenient, all-natural way to get where they’re going alert and energized.
Travel in the safety, luxury and warmth of a full-service town car or SUV while taking breaths from canisters of pure O+ oxygen. The partnership goes the extra mile through a citywide O+ oxygen courier service. A Black Star driver will deliver O+ oxygen to anyone who wants a boost of oxygen anywhere within the Greater Twin Cities Metro Area (Minneapolis and St. Paul) the week proceeding The Big Game (starting January 28th) through the day of The Big Game (February 4th). A delivery service cost applies based on location.
Ideal for health and wellness-minded individuals, sports enthusiasts and people with active lifestyles, Oxygen Plus helps to restore the body’s depleted oxygen levels to optimal levels, so the person breathing feels more like his or her best self again.
“When I pick up travelers at the airport, they are often tired and jet lagged from their flight,” said Abdikarim Kalid (“Mr. Kalid”), owner of Black Star Transportation. “As the host city of the Super Bowl, Black Star customers will get where they’re going refreshed – thanks to Oxygen Plus.”
“In 2003, Oxygen Plus was born to offer the same pure oxygen NFL football players and the medical community breathes but in a consumer-friendly, everyday portable application,” stated Lauren Carlstrom, COO/CMO of Oxygen Plus. “This is why teaming up with Black Star – which can help us reach people celebrating – is an exceptional opportunity.”
