This article is going to look at some of the claims being made about the benefits of canned oxygen and include a review of Oxygen Plus.

Myths About Recreational Oxygen
A lot of claims from people who have bought and used the product. Some swear it has helped with Asthma, or as a pick me up after hard exercise.
By advertising their product as “Recreational Oxygen ” Oxygen Plus is not occupying the same space as some of its competitors who highlight 95% pure oxygen on their product, but leaving the “for recreational use only” in the very fine print near the bottom of the can.
Ok, maybe I might be nit picking over advertising methods.
Two Common Myths
- Casinos pump in pure oxygen so that you stay awake and play longer.
- Helps Contain Covid Symptoms.
Myth Number 1
Do Casinos Pump in Pure Oxygen so that you stay Awake and Play Longer?
It would cost casinos a fortune to pump pure oxygen into their gaming lounges.
Also, because of the increase of oxygen levels in the casino, something as simple as lighting a cigarette would cause a devastating explosion and fire.
So that is definitely a myth.
However it has been proven, breathing O+ oxygen can help high rollers and poker masters increase mentally alertness and focus while improving their recall and reaction time ( *Source Scholey).
Does breathing in Oxygen help with Stress.
I will let you decide by watching this video.
Myth Number 2
Using packs of oxygen bought from the supermarket helps Contain Covid Symptons.
Media reports coming out of India during May and June 2021 were quite scary. Painting a picture of desperate struggling people, dealing with a Covid outbreak and oxygen shortages in their ICU’s.
The pandemic-induced oxygen shortage in the state, brought about an increased interest towards recreational oxygen across local supermarkets and drugstores.
Several Private supermarkets have stocked up on recreational oxygen, as the product does not require a license or prescription to sell.
“For Covid patients suffering from critical loss of oxygen in their blood stream, it (recreational oxygen), can be a life saver untill they can get to a hospital.“
“However, it cannot be a sustainable home remedy for Covid-19,” Dr Ashwin Kumar, a Vijayawada-based pulmonologist said.
Pulmonologists say that these spray cans do not serve the purpose that covid patients would hope for, as the primary purpose of canned oxygen is to help professional athletes and mountaineers.
You can see more at this link from the India Times.
There is some truth that it does assist with covid symptons.
Energy and Vitality Boosts from using Oxygen
Many athletes claim that it improves stamina and muscle recovery.
As well as anecdotal evidence there is also scientific evidence to back this up.
Professional athletes may benefit from supplemental oxygen to quickly restore reserves of a chemical called ATP, which gives us energy.
According to Dr. Anthony Hericks, a pulmonologist who specializes in helping people with breathing problems
“I think when you see the athletes on the sidelines, take a big burst of this oxygen, it fills up the lungs, so you get more in the bloodstream.
Maybe you are able to make ATP (a chemical which gives us energy), a little bit quicker which means you will have a little bit more of that immediate energy available
Can you Combat Altitude Problems using Oxygen Plus
There is enough evidence to show canned oxygen does have benefits for mountaineers and others at high altitudes.
Studies have shown that 75% of people will suffer some form of altitude sickness above 4,900ft (1500mtrs). regardless of fitness, age, or sex.
Tourists who are at high altitudes for a short time will find having a can or two of oxygen beneficial.
However these would not be convenient to dedicated mountaineers, who rely on their oxygen tanks at the higher levels.
Does Oxygen Plus Alleviate the Effects of Jet Lag
There plenty of evidence to show that oxygen will alleviate the effects of jet lag.
Some airlines even offer oxygen to passengers.
At cruising altitudes, airline cabins have a lower saturation of oxygen level than at ground level.
Typically this is about 10%. Combined with the stress of coping with airport security, bad food, layovers on long haul flights, cramped seating can leave you feeling sluggish, with a headache, and feeling irritable.
It is recommended by the manufactures of oxygen plus to take a few deep breaths of oxygen once your back on the ground to restore your depleted oxygen levels back to normal,
Can Oxygen Plus Diminish Exposure to Polluted and Stale Air.
There are many from Asthma sufferers, to office workers who have submitted positive testimonials about their use of Oxygen Plus.
Being in an airconditioned office all day does have detrimental effects on your respiratory system, and as shown above, a dose of oxygen will
Is Canned Oxygen Safe
Oxygen Plus and other oxygen products have not shown any side effects, or adverse reactions in actual usage.
Oxygen Plus does have research from independent sources such as the Mayo Clinic, Harvard Medicine School.
The British Sports Journal and others. See Them Here
In this review my opinion has shifted and I now understand why the average office worker in an air-conditioned office with artificial light, would be using it.
And why, Someone who does meditation would use it, As well as athletes, even Yoga practitioners.
And, as someone who has chewed cocoa leaves in Peru, I can vouch for Oxygen Plus benefits in the higher altitudes.
If I buy something it is for a particular purpose rather than the novelty of it.
Like the guy in the video
Oxygen Plus advises that any person with any type of health or medical condition, should consult their physician prior to use of O+ products.
Since O+ is not a medical product or intended for medical use, it is neither regulated nor approved by the FFA
