Oxygen Plus (O+) products, which contain 99.5% pure recreational oxygen, are manufactured in a clean room at a FDA-registered facility. Each canister is sourced from North and South America and every O+ product is assembled, quality-controlled and filled in the U.S.A. and is 100% recyclable after use.
Oxygen Plus (O+) products are intended for recreational, intermittent use only, not to be used as medical nor life-saving products. 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.
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.
Since O+ is not a medical product or intended for medical use, it is neither regulated nor approved by the FDA.
When using Oxygen Plus (O+) products, please observe these precautions:
- Oxygen vigorously accelerates combustion and flame.
- Do not use or store O+ canisters near flames, sparks, heat, fuels or combustible material.
- Canister temperature should not exceed 49 C (120 F).
- Do not use if damaged.
- Use only as directed.
Oxygen is the key ingredient in the production of energy.
Every breath you take converts to energy. Human cells use nutrients from food and oxygen to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy source that fuels cell function. If your cells receive too little oxygen, they produce less energy. If your cells need more energy, they use more oxygen. That’s why your breathing rate increases when you exercise.
When energy drops, performance drops.
Conditions that can deplete your body’s oxygen levels – or low blood-oxygen level (LBO) symptoms – include air pollution, jet lag, breathing stale air that has less than the normal 20 to 21 percent oxygen, higher altitude, intense workouts and sports activities, overexertion, alcohol consumption and stress.
Three or four breaths of Oxygen Plus (O+) oxygen helps restore your body’s oxygen levels to normal, healthy levels – elevating your energy and enhancing cognitive performance at home, work and play.

GENERAL WELLNESS, ENERGY + RECOVERY
Similar to maintaining adequate levels of hydration, keeping healthy oxygen levels can help your body function optimally. When you’re feeling sluggish – and it’s not because you’re tired, hungry or have some other underlying condition – it could be that your body’s oxygen levels are the culprit. Fatigue has been reported by several studies as one of the most common symptoms experienced by people worldwide. A Harvard Medical School report found that 77% of Americans cite “lack of energy” as the top health concern, and a persistent feeling of fatigue is one of the most common health concerns in this country – accounting for 10 to 15 million doctor visits per year (4).
Many American cities suffer from poor air quality. There are also many international cities where air quality is compromised. 2020 World Health Organization (WHO) data reports 9 out of 10 people breathe air containing high levels of pollutants. Air pollution is often identified by the visibility of “brown” air; however, harmful levels of pollutants can be present even in clear conditions. Each breath of Oxygen Plus helps diminish a user's exposure to polluted indoor and outdoor air. Check out the Air Quality Index (AQI) in your – or any – U.S. city, with data collected and presented by the EPA: www.airnow.gov.
Business and other travelers are often tired, worn out and physically weak from coping with growing airport security measures, increased flight delays, bad food, layovers and sometimes excess consumption of alcohol or caffeine products. At cruising altitude, airline cabins have lower-than-normal air pressure and oxygen levels – with blood oxygen saturation during commercial flights 5%–10% lower than normal (4). Airplane cabins are not pressurized to sea level. Passengers on long-haul flights are therefore exposed to reduced oxygen pressure for periods of up to 18 hours at a time (5).
Unlike muscles, your brain cannot store energy. It needs a steady flow of nutrients and oxygen to function normally. A few quick breaths of Oxygen Plus often enables a person to feel more alert. According to The Franklin Institute, a brain's need for oxygen is more than ten times greater than the rest of the body. Oxygen deficiency can decrease your alertness, memory and judgment (1, 2). The use of supplemental oxygen increases both immediate and delayed word recall, and significantly improves performance on several measures of attention and vigilance (1). Most people experience a sharp falloff in alertness and working memory speed after 2:00 p.m. – a falloff which results in a reduction of productivity. Supplemental oxygen, like Oxygen Plus significantly improves cognitive performance in healthy adults. Compared with people who breathed normal air, which is approximately 21 percent oxygen, those who breathe 90 percent oxygen perform better on recall tests and reaction time (2).
At higher altitudes, the oxygen molecules are less dense. Ascending 5,000 or more feet in elevation, which is common when skiing or hiking in the mountains, can result in mild symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness – headaches, nausea, dizziness, disturbed sleep, fatigue, shortness of breath and loss of appetite. These symptoms will lessen while breathing a higher concentration of oxygen. When the brain does not receive enough oxygen, the brain is impaired and a condition known as hypoxia can occur. Hypoxia – a serious medical condition for which people should seek immediate medical attention – is the deficiency of oxygen reaching tissues of the body. Hypoxia can occur in oxygen-deficient environments, including higher mountain elevations. The worst symptom of hypoxia is how it affects the brain by diminishing a person's awareness of the oxygen deficiency. In oxygen-deficient environments, some people experience mild euphoria and feel fine, even though they may be unable to write their name legibly or sort a deck of cards. PRECAUTION: Oxygen Plus is not a medical product and any person with any medical condition should consult their physician prior to use of Oxygen Plus products.
Intense exercise demands more oxygen, which fuels the cells, producing energy and aiding in muscle recovery. Muscles use glycogen from carbohydrates, and when glycogen is burnt in the absence of oxygen, it produces lactic acid, which results in muscle fatigue. Olympic athletes, as well as professional football players and other elite athletes, have long used supplemental oxygen to restore depleted oxygen levels and recover from muscle fatigue (3). Some U.S. Olympic athletes use oxygen in conjunction with high-altitude training to extend their workouts and improve performance (3). Anaerobic exercise and workouts that produce high levels of lactic acid are the most responsive to supplemental oxygen. Endurance athletes who, during exercise, were provided a 90-second recovery period and were administered oxygen at 99.5% purity (the same percentage as Oxygen Plus) reduced inflammatory responses post exercise and received an increased SpO2 recovery time (6).
Consuming alcohol depletes the oxygen content in your bloodstream. The use of supplemental oxygen 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. The liver requires three molecules of oxygen per one molecule of alcohol – a 3 to 1 ratio – to synthesize acetaldehyde, which ultimately becomes water and carbon dioxide for elimination (7). While extra oxygen intake does not help with the consequences of dehydration related to hangovers, oxygen actively breaks alcohol down into harmless chemicals or substances, of which your body can more readily dispose. People who occasionally over-indulge have found that extra oxygen intake helps them recover more quickly, and some customers report breathing Oxygen Plus while drinking alcohol helps reduce the likelihood of a hangover.
