    PR Newswire – July 2016

    From the Big Apple to The Golden State, a growing number of wellness-minded individuals are inhaling Oxygen Plus (O+) for an extra dose of energy, mental clarity and beautifying benefits. The stylish, sleek O+ canisters provide 95% pure oxygen that is revitalizing wellness centers, spas, hotels and retailers across the country. As U.S. consumers embrace multiple mind and body benefits of Oxygen Plus, the demand for this portable, wellness product is surging worldwide.»

    Providing pure, soothing breaths of enriched oxygen, O+ is enhancing the everyday experience of those who seek moments of calm in the midst of the stressors of daily life. Having caught wind of the trend, The DEN Meditation in Los Angeles, CA is introducing the concept of breathing O+ oxygen to the leaders of the meditation community. Amanda Simmons, COO of The DEN Meditation, reports that O+ has helped its customers reach deeper receptive space for an enriched meditation experience.

    Inhaling a few deep breaths of O+ can also provide a spa-like experience, helping to decrease stress levels, while delivering oxygen to the body to increase circulation and deliver nutrients to the skin. Guests staying at Trump International Hotel Las Vegas can unwind in their private Mediterranean-style poolside cabanas when they take part in the hotel’s one-of-a-kind “Spaah-ify” program. The package pampers guests with a refreshing canister of Oxygen Plus, a chair massage and aromatherapy mister. When the treatment is over, the compact, pocket-friendly canisters can extend the day’s relaxation and rejuvenation at the poker table, or in the morning after a late night on the Strip.

    “The increased use and recognition of O+ across the hospitality and growing wellness channels is something we’re continually pleased to see,” said Christine Warren, Founder and President of Oxygen Plus. “The trends continue to point to health and wellness, and new establishments sharing the benefits of O+ with more and more consumers – worldwide – is fulfilling Oxygen Plus’s founding vision: To make a significant contribution to the well-being of humankind.”

    The West isn’t the only region of the country that’s breathing easier with Oxygen Plus: Zitomer Pharmacy and Department Store in New York City recently added the supplemental oxygen line to their shelves, and it’s one of its most popular products. The reputable, upscale pharmacy prides itself on introducing emerging, trendy items across the board. Shoppers come to Zitomer scouting the most innovative everyday items, making Oxygen Plus an ideal pick-me-up for active, busy New Yorkers.

    Flavored, Portable Oxygen Invades The Music Festival ScenePDF Version

    PR Newswire – May 2016

    Music lovers are struck with festival fever as summer show dates are fast approaching. These mega-concerts are equal parts exciting and exhausting, with endless dancing, drinking and blazing. Now, festival-goers are leaving their plastic cups and lighters behind and opting for a pure, more energizing experience with a trending wellness product: recreational oxygen.»

    Reaching beyond the sweaty, tiring environment and smoke-filled festival air, Oxygen Plus (O+) elevates the festival experience of those who crave natural energy and recovery with a line of canned recreational oxygen that’s easy to carry and breathe when on the go. O+ is 95% pure oxygen, which delivers more than four times the amount of oxygen found in unpolluted, everyday air.

    Inhaled through the mouth or the nose with the push of a button, O+ oxygen is an effective, natural way to restore energy levels to normal, healthy levels. At festivals and other crowded and congested events, a person’s oxygen levels can decrease, leaving him/her feeling sluggish and depleted. Oxygen Plus helps by offering a convenient, quick, healthy dose of pollution-free, oxygen enriched air. Elevating festival-goers at the annual Bud Light Digital Dreams Music Festival in Toronto, Canada, Oxygen Plus was a big hit with wellness minded partiers who wanted a portable, natural boost to sustain their energy level throughout the day.

    Across the U.S., breathing supplemental oxygen is being herald as the newest, healthier way to bring out the inner rock star. Oxygen Plus, dubbed the “Evian of the air industry,” is galvanizing awareness. Celebrities like Lady Gaga, Mick Jagger and Justin Timberlake use oxygen on tours and in their daily life to restore vitality and feel more youthful. As more and more millennials are embracing the wellness mindset, natural energy alternatives like Oxygen Plus are being adopted as a healthier alternative to drug and alcohol consumption at festivals and in other social settings. Stylish, portable, and available in various flavors and sizes, Oxygen Plus provides attendees with a side-effect free restorative experience, with an inherent cool factor, that smartly helps one avoid post-party fog and the unwanted symptoms of a late night out.

    In addition to restoring energy at a festival, a few deep breaths of O+ oxygen can improve mental clarity, increase alertness and energy, and help the body recuperate after vigorous physical activity1. Simply position the canister opening near the mouth or nose, press the top down, and inhale O+. Three to five breaths usually does the trick, but it depends on one’s environment and activity level.

    The Oxygen Plus product line-up includes the pocket-friendly O+ Mini, offering 24+ breaths, and the oxygen-packed O+ Skinni, offering 50+ breaths. Either option is the perfect fit for a person’s festival packing list, and offers multiple uses or occasions per canister. Oxygen Plus products come in a variety of flavors, including Natural, Peppermint and Pink Grapefruit, and are available online at oxygenplus.com.

    USAGE NOTE: Oxygen Plus products are a healthy, effective portable oxygen solution for anyone who needs energy restoration. WARNING: Any person with impaired heart or lung function or other medical conditions should consult with his or her physician prior to using O+ products. O+ products are intended for recreational, intermittent use only, not to be used as medical or life-saving device.

    Strategically Sustainable: Companies Going GreenPDF Version

    PR Newswire – April 2016

    With high pollution levels, global climate changes, and biodiversity concerns, the need to “go green” has captured the attention of individuals and businesses worldwide, with health and wellness companies like Oxygen Plus (O+) promoting sustainability and cleaner air.»

    O+, the pioneers of portable recreational oxygen, encompasses all facets of “going green” while raising the bar, by providing enriched oxygen to wellness-minded individuals worldwide. Designed for active, sports and wellness-minded people, O+’s recreational oxygen products deliver 95% pure oxygen in a sleek, handheld, stylish canister, and help lower stress, sustain vitality, and heighten mental clarity and performance(1).

    True to its founding vision, Oxygen Plus has built a lifestyle brand on the belief that individuals worldwide deserve to breathe fresh, clean air. “As we approach Earth Day, we are pleased to do our part in fulfilling our company’s vision to make a significant contribution to the well-being of humankind, in how we’ve designed and manufactured our portable oxygen products,” said Christine Warren, Founder and President of Oxygen Plus, who developed the products to both de-stigmatize oxygen and to help make the world a healthier place to live and breathe. “In addition to manufacturing our canisters with recyclable aluminum that is 100% recyclable after use, our belief in helping our world is reflected in our commitment to minimize our global footprint by sourcing materials regionally, and by filling and assembling our products here in the U.S. Moreover, our flagship product, the O+ Elevate Pack, has become a highly-sought after “green product” because, in addition to working with recyclable refill canisters, the design concept is rooted in sustainably through a reusable, refillable shell.”

    Recreational oxygen products are taking on a new role on Earth Day. Though the air in our atmosphere is approximately 21% oxygen, which is a sufficient level for most people in most conditions, air pollution can compromise outdoor and indoor air quality, causing an otherwise healthy individual to feel the negative effects associated with inhaling less than ideal air. Oxygen Plus aids in relieving the negative effects of breathing compromised air by lessening one’s exposure to pollutants – in essence, giving an individual a literal “breath of fresh air” by restoring depleted oxygen levels to normal, healthy levels. Stress, travel, higher elevation, intense exercise, and late nights also contribute to the sluggish feelings associated with deficient oxygen levels.

    Meeting the need to help diminish the effects of poor air quality for people living in, or traveling to, places with high levels of pollution, Oxygen Plus is bringing its life-enriching products to heavily polluted cities like China, as well as cities in the U.S., including Los Angeles and New York City, that are impacted by smog and other environmental pollutants. (Learn what the air quality index (AQI) is in your area by visiting www.airnow.gov.)

    In addition to offering the environmentally-thoughtful O+ Elevate Pack, which includes the reusable O-Stick and two starter refills, Oxygen Plus offers – in Natural (unscented), Peppermint, and Pink Grapefruit aromas – the compact O+ Mini, providing 24+ breaths of pure oxygen, and the taller O+ Skinni, which offers more than 50 breaths of pure oxygen. Each portable, lightweight O+ canister provides energy and recovery at the times you need it most.

  • The Value of American Oxygen Goes Up as Global Air Quality Declines

    The Value of American Oxygen Goes Up as Global Air Quality DeclinesPDF Version

    PR Newswire – December 2015

    The rush to buy bottled oxygen in Beijing may have heightened substantially during the smog crisis, but the idea of breathing pure oxygen from a canister is nothing new in the United States. It’s especially popular in cities with high pollution such as Los Angeles and New York, where knowledgeable, health-conscious clientele has been inhaling canned oxygen for years.»

    Oxygen Plus (O+) recreational oxygen products deliver 95% pure oxygen in stylish, purse and pocket-sized canisters that consumers can easily carry and breathe whenever oxygen levels are depleted from pollution, poor air quality, and other stresses of modern life.

    Filled and quality-controlled in the U.S., O+ oxygen represents a wellness mindset that understands how supplemental oxygen, including oxygen facials and oxygen bars, can help people feel and perform their best. Celebrities like Lady Gaga, Madonna, Victoria Beckham, Justin Timberlake, Mick Jagger, and Kim Kardashian use oxygen recreationally to increase feelings of vitality, to recover more quickly, and improve focus and mental clarity.

    Supplementing with oxygen is becoming more understood by consumers and experts alike. “Oxygen can help combat damage from increased energy levels,” explains Dr. Kelly Bender, ND of the Pure Vitality Center in Los Angeles. “Discussions on the positive effects of pure oxygen on human cells are leaning towards the ability oxygen has to make them stronger.”

    International travellers use Oxygen Plus in part because of the rising health concern of air quality in large cities, especially cities with a heavy industrial component. Worsening global air quality issues are a serious health risk for a city’s inhabitants, as seen with Beijing’s “red alert” measures for “choking” smog.

    “Oxygen Plus is known as the Evian of the air industry,” said fitness expert, Antonella James. “You see the oxygen cans come out when people are stressed, tired, queasy, shredding the slopes in high elevation or recovering from a night out.”

    Available at multiple W Hotels worldwide, including W Hong Kong, Oxygen Plus can also be found at a number of luxury and boutique hotels and spas such as The Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons, Hard Rock, Hyatt Regency, Starwood, Marriot and Hilton hotels. O+ oxygen is also available at travel, sport and fitness stores nationwide.

    “Oxygen Plus is considered one of the most stylish, accessible, and easy to use options. We’ve been stocking it for months,” says Sharon Sternheim, Zitomer Pharmacy and Department Store in New York City.

    Oxygen Plus (O+), the pioneer and leader in the growing category of portable recreational oxygen, today announced its mission to be the “preferred air” of independent filmmakers and film enthusiasts during the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Robert Redford’s epic event, which takes place in Park City, Utah from Jan. 22 through Feb. 1 attracts approximately 50,000 movie-lovers over its two-week span.»

    Oxygen Plus will host a number of activities during the festival, promoting its lightweight, ski-jacket-friendly canisters of 95% pure, recreational oxygen that restores mental clarity and depleted energy levels to normal, healthy levels. The O+ team will elevate the streets and slopes of Park City through product education at select Oxygen Plus retailers, including Marmot on Main (540 Main Street) and various Jans Mountain Outfitters (www.jans.com) locations. Visitors, mountain mavens and partiers who are shaken by the combination of jetlag, higher elevation, skiing and multiple nights on the town, can purchase Oxygen Plus when they land and throughout the festival to feel, as Oxygen Plus CMO Lauren Carlstrom phrased it, “more like you again.” Carlstrom said, “Oxygen Plus is at Sundance so festival attendees can feel more energized and revitalized – so they’re not catching their breath when they’re walking to a premiere, recovering from a late night out, or flying down black diamonds on the slopes. Our company has always been about helping people go further, so,” Carlstrom teased, “it shouldn’t be surprising if, by chance, attendees are offered a lift in the O+ SUV.”
