Boost Oxygen COO Mike Grice explains the quality of Boost Oxygen canisters

Mike Grice is the COO of Boost Oxygen – he’s also a retired Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel, having served 27 years for the United States. In this video, Mike Grice explains why Boost Oxygen is the worldwide leader in portable supplemental oxygen and the steps Boost takes to ensure the safety and quality of our product.


Por qué Boost Oxygen es el líder en oxígeno suplementario portátil

Founded in 2007, Boost Oxygen has been the entrepreneurial pioneer for developing a new retail category: 95% Pure Supplemental Oxygen in lightweight, portable and affordable canisters for health, recovery, natural energy and athletic performance.

There are several reasons why Boost Oxygen is the leader in portable supplemental oxygen. We have been fortunate to partner with terrific suppliers, retail partners, employees, contractors and many other people and organizations who have all taken a little chance on Boost Oxygen, and all have been major factors in our growth and success. We wanted to share some of these reasons with you, our loyal customers.


Through extensive testing and innovation, Boost Oxygen developed and patented masks and actuators for one-handed ease of use and ergonomic benefits of various sized cans to offer the perfect balance of convenience, size and value. Boost Oxygen has worked with the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration and Consumer Product Safety Commission to develop supplemental oxygen products that were safe, legal to use without a prescription, compliant to package, ship and store, and most importantly, could deliver value to the consumer for any non-medical use. You can view our mask patents below:

Also, like any business pioneer that fights infringing products, we have been forced to defend our patent against companies who have copied our mask design. We successfully defended our patent and have been awarded judgements against these companies. We feel it’s important for any business to protect their hard work and intellectual property. You can read the public judgement against one brand that infringed on our product below:



Since CEO Rob Neuner founded Boost Oxygen in 2007, he has built the foundation of the company on honesty and integrity. Boost Oxygen is for healthy people looking to enjoy the benefits of portable supplemental oxygen in their lifestyle. It is not intended for medical purposes. We believe in being up front and honest about our product.

Other knockoffs seek to confuse consumers with claims about FDA-registered facilities, but this does not mean they are FDA approved. No portable supplemental oxygen company is FDA approved. Unlike these knockoffs, we don’t make false or fraudulent claims.

Building and maintaining trust with our customers is important to us. It’s important that you trust our product will work when you need it. It’s important that when you use our product, you trust you are getting 95% pure oxygen.

We also provide CERTIFIED lab testing results of Boost Oxygen on our website for customers to read. Some people think our product is “canned air”, but our canisters contain 95% pure oxygen. The air we normally breathe contains only 21% oxygen, with the majority being useless 78% nitrogen. We just received our latest 2020 report from Atlantic Analytical Laboratory (AAL), the number-one expert gas analysis laboratory in the northeast United States for nearly 50 years. See the results for yourself below:

Finally, many people ask us why our canisters are so lightweight. That’s because oxygen is a nearly weightless gas, so our canisters are lightweight. We even print it on our canisters. We’ve been asked why we don’t add weight to our canisters to make them feel “more full”, but that would be disingenuous and would only increase the cost of our product for the consumer. Rest assured, even though our canisters are lightweight, they are very full of 95% pure oxygen!


Are there scientific reports and studies that support the benefits of Boost Oxygen? Yes, there are published reports by scientists, researchers and universities that not only support supplemental oxygen, but specifically our Boost Oxygen product of portable 95% pure oxygen for all-natural respiratory support. A university study was recently published using Boost Oxygen to study the effects of supplemental oxygen with increased athletic performance and recovery rates:

University Study

From the study abstract:

“The administration of concentrated oxygen during exercise has continuously been questioned on its affiliation with increased athletic performance and recovery rates. To assess the validity of these statements, three untrained individuals performed two separate trials of steady-state exercise for 15 minutes in a cohort study. During the independent trial, a 2-liter pocket sized Boost Oxygen canister supplement containing 95% concentrated O2 was self-administered by the subjects commencing their exercise. The study’s findings suggest that concentrated O2 supplements can increase VO2 kinetics, resulting in a decreased time to attain steady-state VO2. Furthermore, supplemental O2 may help maintain a steadier steady-state VO2 during aerobic exercise.


From our study’s findings, we can assume that Boost Oxygen’s supplemental oxygen canister can cause improvements in VO2 kinetics and reduce oxygen deficit when administered just prior to aerobic steady- state exercise in untrained individuals. Furthermore, supplemental concentrated oxygen may help maintain a steadier steady- state VO2.”

In other words, the study found that Boost Oxygen can increase oxygen levels in the body. It also found that Boost Oxygen can help maintain higher oxygen levels in the body during aerobic exercise.
