The purified oxygen delivered by the cans helps to mitigate the effects of muscle fatigue, cramping and poor performance in both aerobic and anaerobic activity. By supplementing a person's oxygen intake, physical and mental stress can be recovered from faster, and helps people increase intense physical output.

The oxygen canisters come in a variety of flavours, including peppermint, pink grapefruit and menthol-eucalyptus, as well as in a flavourless natural variety. A typical scenario would include three-to-five inhalations before a strenuous sports event, three-to-five during a rest period, and three-to-five at the end.

All you need to do is remove the tamper-safe plastic, put the mask around your mouth, press the trigger and inhale deeply. Then hold the oxygen in your lungs briefly before exhaling for the best results. Boost recommend you repeat this  3-5 times to feel the effect of the oxygen.
