What’s the difference between Boost Oxygen and the air you normally breathe? When people first discover Boost Oxygen, then mistakenly think it is simply “canned air”. However, Boost Oxygen is NOT canned air. It is very different from the air you breathe and helps many people for many reasons we’ll discuss below.

What Is The Air You Normally Breathe?

The air you normally breathe every day contains only 21% Oxygen. The majority is 78% useless Nitrogen along with 1% of trace gases like argon, carbon dioxide, neon and helium. Every day, the average person breathes in over 2,000 gallons of air—enough to almost fill up a normal-sized swimming pool. Of that, only around 420 gallons is pure oxygen.

What Is Boost Oxygen?

Boost Oxygen is 95% Pure Oxygen in portable, lightweight and recyclable canisters. Boost Oxygen provides nearly 5X the amount of pure Oxygen you get from normal air. Many people ask if Boost Oxygen is medical-grade Oxygen. It is not. Medical-grade Oxygen is defined as 99.2% or higher pure Oxygen and requires a prescription. Boost Oxygen is 95% Pure Supplemental Oxygen and is not intended to treat or cure any illness. No prescription is required to purchase and use Boost Oxygen.

Boost Oxygen canisters are tested annually for their Oxygen content by two of the top laboratories in the nation.

Why Oxygen Is Important For Your Body

Your body needs Oxygen to create energy! Oxygen provides energy to your cells to power your tissues, muscles and organs. Without proper Oxygen levels, you can feel tired, sluggish or even sick. Your body also uses Oxygen during food digestion to absorb nutrients from what you eat.

Boost Oxygen Founder and CEO Rob Neuner explains the benefits of supplemental Oxygen for your body:



Who Uses Boost Oxygen and Why?

Boost Oxygen is used by many people for several reasons. Many older adults enjoy using supplemental oxygen for their active lifestyle. During the heat and humidity of summer, older adults can experience shortness of breath. Boost Oxygen can help! Athletes have been using supplemental Oxygen for decades to help with performance and recovery during competition and training. Boost Oxygen is also very popular with visitors to high-altitude locations like Colorado and the Rocky Mountain region where there can be less Oxygen in the air. Supplemental Oxygen can help you feel better faster during altitude acclimation. Also, due to wildfires and poor air quality, many people on the West Coast are now learning about the benefits of using Boost Oxygen.
