When ascending to high altitudes (around 2,500 meters or higher) the body finds it difficult to adjust to the lower levels of oxygen in the atmosphere. In fact, around 40% of people who visit high-altitude/low oxygen tourist attractions (like Mount Kilimanjaro) can experience a range of symptoms linked with altitude sickness (headaches, nausea, and general malaise).

According to WEB MD, National Health Service (UK), eMedicineHealth (and other reputable sources), giving supplemental Oxygen is the #1 recommended remedy for the symptoms of altitude sickness caused by the deprivation of oxygen to the body. Many alpine and mountain enthusiasts use BOOST Oxygen to help recover from the effects associated with altitude sickness (Acute Mountain Sickness).

AIR QUALITY

Inoor and outdoor air pollution has been identified as a major environmental risk to our health. Living in cities and areas of poor air quality has been known to increase the production of free radicals (unstable molecules with an unpaired electron); this leads to cell damage. The use of Boost Oxygen has been known to provide a stable environment for these free radicals. We may not be able to completely control our environment, but we can look after our bodies. Boost Oxygen is the perfect way to assist with oxygen intake in areas of poor air quality.
