FAQs

O+ products are sleek, compact, durable, lightweight, and push-button ready-to-use. Our flagship product – The O+ Elevate Pack, featuring the O-Stick and O+ Refills – is so simple to use and replace it’s like changing batteries in a flashlight. The O+ Mini, O+ Skinni and O+ Biggi are designed for portability and style - so they can go wherever you go – anytime you need a lift of pure energy and recovery.  Oxygen Plus products offer more high-quality oxygen per volume – and thus value – than any other comparable-sized oxygen product on the market – worldwide. Available in a variety of sizes, packs and consumer-friendly prices, Oxygen Plus goes further to ensure O+ goes where you go.

Oxygen Plus, Inc. meets and exceeds the industry standards for product development and manufacturing in order to ensure you have a safe and functional product in hand while you’re on the go. Setting the bar in recreational oxygen, Oxygen Plus is the only company who manufactures its product in a FDA-registered facility. Our canisters are sourced from quality manufacturers in North and South America, and O+ products are designed, engineered, assembled, filled, and quality-controlled in the U.S.A. Check out how we compare to "the competition." Its all these commitments, supported by a fun, creative, energetic, brand-loving team from the heartland of the Midwest, are what continues to set O+ apart from the competition.

The first consumer-friendly recreational oxygen company to evolve, Oxygen Plus proudly remains the pioneer and market leader of portable, recreational oxygen products worldwide.

Under normal atmospheric conditions, ambient air contains 21% oxygen. That’s without considering the presence of compromised or polluted air. O+ products are enriched with a much higher concentration of oxygen – more than four times the normal air we breathe. “Recreational oxygen,” a term that has become somewhat synonymous with “canned oxygen,” essentially applies to any oxygen product that is neither medical nor industrial oxygen. A stationary oxygen bar would also be considered “recreational oxygen” even though the oxygen creation process and purity differs from quality canned oxygen products. Oxygen Plus is aviator breathing oxygen (ABO). While difficult to measure the actual amount you may inhale, the actual percentage of oxygen (O2) in each canister contains 99.5% oxygen.

With O+ in hand, press the button backwards to release the flow. Breathe in O+ through your mouth or nose.  Three to five breaths usually does the trick. It just depends on what you’re up to. Some inhale the whole can in one go if they’re playing hard or in environments with low oxygen content. You may notice more oxygen flows out during the first few breaths than it does for the last few breaths. The O-Stick shell of the O+ Elevate Pack flows gently and pretty evenly – on the first go 'til nearly the last – with its designer, easy-pull lever. The O+ Mini, O+ Skinni and O+ Biggi are equally oxygen-power-packed, however they have a different release valve, and thus flow, than the refillable O-Stick. For this reason, you may have to press the release valve (button or trigger) of an O+ Mini, O+ Skinni or O+ Biggi more firmly – and for less time – on your first few hits than you will on the last. To accommodate getting more oxygen as the canister nears its end, simply increase the time you press down on the release valve and take longer breaths.

Your body is designed to function on 21% oxygen in the air you breathe. Polluted or stale air usually contains less than 21% oxygen, which can impede optimal functioning of your cells. Most importantly, your brain cells are the first affected, resulting in impaired reaction time and judgment. Since it is difficult to monitor atmospheric oxygen, we suggest trying a few quick breaths of O+ to help you feel mentally sharper, more alert and energetic.

The cells of the human body can only create energy if they have oxygen. And they must create energy to function. Oxygen research has shown that breathing increased oxygen-content air improves cognitive performance, including memory and reaction time. Most people who have tried O+ report that they feel more alert and energetic after a few breaths of O+. They often use it whenever they want to feel an invigorating boost. See testimonials for actual O+ customer feedback.

If you’re breathing Oxygen Plus products correctly, but are still not “feeling” the effects of the oxygen in your mind or body, two possibilities are likely the culprit. 1) You may not have needed Oxygen Plus when you used it. Your body’s oxygen levels may already be optimal, or what’s considered “normal, healthy” oxygen levels of 96-99% SpO2. Sometimes if you’re feeling sluggish, you may just need energy from food, liquid or a nap. 2) If your body is oxygen depleted, yet you’re not feeling the benefits of breathing Oxygen Plus, you may not be inhaling enough. Your body’s oxygen levels may be significantly lower than what the standard dosage recommendation (3 to 5 deep breaths) can replenish in order for you to “feel” the difference. If this is the case, simply inhale more Oxygen Plus through your mouth or your nose until you feel more like you again, and have restored your body’s oxygen levels to 96-99% SpO2. If you want some guidance in learning when – and how much – Oxygen Plus your body needs to elevate your everyday life, pick up an oximeter (available for purchase at the O+ Store) until you’ve trained your body to recognize when it’s oxygen depleted.

Each person’s response to breathing enriched oxygen will be different. The O+ experience is not equivalent to an energy rush from a shot of caffeine or other energy stimulant. After a few breaths, you should feel invigorated — either a mental or physical boost or a sense of calm. If you were to ascend to an elevation 3,000 feet or higher than your normal elevation, the effect of breathing O+ would be more noticeable, both physically and mentally. If you’re using O+ oxygen for intense exercise, you’ll likely find you perform better, feel stronger and more alert, and that you’ll have less exhaustion after working out. If you’re not feeling the benefits of breathing O+, try taking more frequent, shorter breaths, and don’t hold the breath of oxygen in your lungs longer than you would when taking a normal deep breath. Note that your overall health and physicality, in addition to proper usage, play into how much O+ your body needs to feel the effects of breathing O+.

O+ can be used every day. We recommend using O+ any time you may be experiencing depleted oxygen levels – i.e., at a higher elevation, during and after intense exercise, where air pollution and stale air are prevalent, after a late night out. Note that all Oxygen Plus products are for recreational, intermittent use only. Prolonged use is defined as uninterrupted intake for more than 8 hours. WARNING: Persons with any type of health or medical condition should consult their physician prior to use of products.

The benefits of supplemental oxygen have varying durations, depending on the individual and the benefit. The feeling of alertness and mental clarity has been shown to last several minutes. Often the “feelings” of using supplemental oxygen depend on what you’re doing, your starting blood oxygen level, and how well you are breathing, among other things.

O+ products can easily fit in a purse, pack or briefcase with room to spare. Whether in a bar, the subway or in a stale office environment with poor air quality, the portability of O+ products offers the convenience of a sleek design that travels with you.

Although the concentration of oxygen in the atmosphere is uniform at all elevations, lower barometric pressures at higher altitudes allow all molecules in the air to expand so each breath contains fewer oxygen molecules. The larger molecule problem can be counteracted by increasing the oxygen concentration of the air you breathe or by acclimatizing to the higher elevation over a period of weeks. Not being acclimatized can result in shortness of breath during exertion, hyperventilation, and more. During use, O+ products can supply a higher concentration of oxygen that simulates being at lower altitude.

Traveling by air can lower your body’s oxygen saturation levels by as much as 12%. A few deep breaths of O+ after a long flight can help you get where you’re going refreshed. You can have your O+ shipped directly to your destination – if it’s not already in the hotel mini bar. Currently, commercial airline passengers are not allowed to bring canned recreational oxygen in checked or carry-on luggage.

Not advised. Although oxygen gas is non-flammable, it vigorously accelerates fire and flames. In case you’re wondering, the cylinders worn by firefighters contain normal, ambient air.

We generously define an O+ breath or a “deep” breath as equaling approximately two seconds long. The way other recreational canned oxygen companies define a breath varies. Some define a breath as one second long. So, keep this in mind if you’re shopping for oxygen products. You might be interested to know an accurate way to compare products is to look at the volume of oxygen per canister volume – or the price per liters (litres) in a canister. Oxygen Plus products offer more oxygen per can volume than any other canned oxygen of comparable-sized canisters on the market.

Sourcing our components as close to home as possible, Oxygen Plus is dedicated to providing the world pure oxygen with a minimal carbon footprint. O+ oxygen canisters are 100% recyclable after use. The small plastic components in Oxygen Plus products are made of the most commonly recyclable plastics and are BPA-free. Be sure to empty the canister completely before disposing or recycling canisters. The plastic O-Stick shell in the O+ Elevate Pack is reusable, and the O+ Mini, O+ Skinni, O+ Biggi and O+ Refills for the O-Stick can be recycled according to local recycling regulations. Again, be sure to completely empty the canisters before recycling.

O+ is safe for healthy people of all ages when using the product as directed. As the canister is pressured with a compressed, oxidizing gas, it is recommended that children use it with adult supervision as a safety precaution. People with impaired heart or lung function or other medical conditions should consult with their physician prior to using O+ products. O+ products are for recreational, intermittent use only. Prolonged use is defined as uninterrupted intake for more than 8 hours.

There are no side effects when O+ products are used as directed.

O+ is a recreational product intended solely for intermittent use. (Prolonged use is defined as uninterrupted intake for more than 8 hours). Since O+ is not a medical product or intended for medical use, it is neither regulated nor approved by the FDA. Setting the bar in recreational oxygen, Oxygen Plus is the only company that manufacturers its products in a clean room at a FDA-registered facility.

Good question. Check out our oxygen research page to learn about the science behind the benefits of breathing enriched oxygen.
