New to the concept of inhaling supplemental oxygen? We admit it’s a new concept, but it’s only a matter of time until all outdoor lovers, athletes, and city explorers become true believers. Clean oxygen inhalation can be a game changer in a variety of situations, from visiting smoggy cities to reaching new heights on the trails. Here are three types of travel where Boost Oxygen can save the day…
1. Visiting a city? Prepare for inversion or smog.
Planning a trip to Salt Lake City this winter? If so, be aware of this gorgeous city’s winter inversion problem, when a layer of cold air is contained by a layer or warmer air (the inversion of normal atmospheric conditions). This causes increased levels of pollution, which get trapped in the cold layer. These nasty spells are at their worst from December through February.
Los Angeles is another city with notorious air quality issues. Though LA’s air quality has vastly improved over the years, rising temperatures keep it is among the worst places for smog in the all of the U.S. Before you venture out on a hike in the Hollywood Hills, be sure that you get your fix of clean oxygen.
Cities rarely offer an abundance of fresh air, so why not bring it with you? Reach out to Boost Oxygen on any social media channel for a real-time tip on where to pick up the nearest can.
2. Climbing mountains? Give your lungs a break.
If you’re used to living at sea level, a 5,000 ft. climb in the Rockies can leave you light-headed or sick if you aren’t careful. Don’t let a lack of oxygen prevent you from reaching the summit. You can find Boost at many high-elevation shops, but as always reach out on social media and we’ll let you know where Boost is nearest you. On top of Boost Oxygen, be sure to take it easy, drink plenty of water, and avoid alcohol. Take your time, listen to your body, and soon enough you’ll be acclimated and ready to hit the trail!
3. Feeling Competitive? Oxygen gives you a leg up.
Runners, mountain bikers, and rock climbers, listen up–travel is hard on your body. Combine travel with your favorite sport and you can wear your body down quickly. It’s time to perform better and shorten your recovery time, so you can get back to doing what you love. Studies have shown that inhaling concentrated oxygen can have a positive impact on your overall performance. It’s an important consideration as you prepare for your next competition on the road, even if you’re only competing with yourself.
To be at your best, no matter where you’re headed, be sure to grab a can of Boost Oxygen. Not sure where to find it? Shoot us a note on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and we’ll get you the location of the closest can to you.
