Make sure sprayer is within 1/2 inch of your mouth
Spray approximately 1 second of oxygen enriched air into your mouth while taking a deep breath
Continue to inhale after you have stopped spraying the oxygen so that you inhale the oxygen into your lungs (otherwise it will sit in your mouth where it has no benefit)
Hold briefly (less than 1 sec)
Release and repeat
If you have any health concerns, always consult your physician before starting on SUPPLEMENTAL oxygen LIKE Oxygen4Energy. Oxygen4Energy IS NOT INTENDED TO TREAT, CURE OR PREVENT ANY DISEASES.
Here’s a simple graph to illustrate the timing of everything assuming a 1 second shot of oxygen:
Traveling with Oxygen4Energy: Airline regulations allow passengers to pack personal care aerosols in their luggage in reasonable quantities. If you pack the Oxygen4Energy aerosol cans in your luggage, you should be fine. If you try to carry them on the plane, they will get confiscated. Due to the nature of airline security, we cannot make any guarantees regarding this issue.
Pressing the Button Correctly
Because we have maximized the amount of oxygen in each can, the button will be initially harder to press than a typical aerosol product due to the increased pressure in the can. As you use up the oxygen, however, the pressure will decrease and the button will be easier to press.
When a can is fresh, you can take much shorter shots because the oxygen is coming out much faster. As you use it up, we recommend taking slightly longer shots to make up for the decrease in pressure. To maximize the use out of every can, we recommend the following:
When a can is fresh, take 0.5 second shots.
In the middle of the can, take 1 second shots.
And at the end of the can, you may need to take even longer shots to get the same effect.
Note: If you have weak fingers, you may have to place your other hand under the can and apply pressure upwards as you press down on the button to get the oxygen to flow with a newly opened can.
These recommendations are simply guidelines to help you get noticeable results from using Oxygen4Energy. Every individual has different needs. You may need to experiment with your dosing to get optimal results.
Sports and Fitness
Take 10 shots just before 30-45 minutes of intense physical exertion to increase endurance, power and explosiveness.
Take 5-7 shots every additional 30 minutes as needed.
Take 10 shots immediately following intense exertion for recovery (if recovery is important to you).
The harder you push yourself, the more noticeable the benefits will be.
For recommendations that are more specific to different sports, check out the Downloads on the top right of this page.
General Energy and Mental Clarity
Take 10 shots when needed.
As the beneficial effects wear off, take an additional 5-10 shots for as long as you need the energy and mental clarity.
Take 10 shots when you feel the effects of altitude.
Follow up with 5-10 shots periodically as needed.
Take 10 shots before going to bed for a more restful sleep.
Take 10-15 shots before going to bed at night if you think you may have consumed enough alcohol to result in a hangover the following morning.
In the morning, take 10 shots every 5-10 minutes until you feel relief.
If you drink so much as to get alcohol poisoning, oxygen supplementation will not help you.
Stress and Headaches
Take 10 shots every 5-10 minutes until you feel relief.
Tips to Maximizing Your Benefits
Start with our recommended doses (see following pages). If you get good results, use 2-3 less shots each consecutive time for the same application until you do not get results. This will help you determine your minimum dosing requirement for that application. (For example: If 10 shots works, try 7 the next time. If 7 shots works, try 5. If 5 doesn’t work, then you know you need to use at least 7 shots.)
More short shots works better than fewer long shots and makes the can last longer.
More oxygen always works better than less oxygen. So if you really need the best possible results from the product, don’t be afraid to take a lot more than the recommended dose. We have customers who take an entire can at one time with no negative side effects.
If you use our recommended doses and do not get results, refer to the Trouble Shooting page.
It is OK to inhale ambient air as you are inhaling the oxygen. Remember, you are just adding extra oxygen to each breath, you are not trying to fill your lungs with the 95% oxygen from the can.
Store your cans in a cool place. If it gets too hot, the contents will leak out.
Most Common Mistakes or Misconceptions
Not taking enough oxygen to make a difference. Through experience, we've found that you really need to flood your with oxygen to create a noticeable benefit. If you try using oxygen for a specific application, please follow our suggested dosing for that application. If you don't notice anything with our suggested dose, increase the dose and see what happens. If you are still not getting results, check out the Trouble Shooting section
Holding the oxygen in your lungs for too long before releasing it. Holding your breath is counterproductive to oxygen supplementation. When you inhale a shot of oxygen, either don't hold it in at all, or hold it very briefly and then release it. If you hold it in for more than 1 second, you are holding it too long.
Taking huge, long, deep breaths and trying to fill your lungs with the 95% oxygen from the can. Our experience has taught us that taking more short shots works better than taking just a few long shots. Your lungs can only absorb so much oxygen from each breath, so trying to fill your lungs with 95% oxygen is pointless and a waste of product. Taking shorter will also allow you to get more applications out of each can, which is a good thing for most people.
Expecting Oxygen to give you a “rush” of energy. Since oxygen is not a stimulant and contains no sugars, there is no rush when you use it. Most people describe the feeling as more euphoric. For sports and fitness, you just notice that you are stronger, you don’t get tired and fast, and you are not as exhausted after the fact.
Trouble Shooting Tips
If you are not getting the results you desire, please review the information on this page. Just a small adjustment could make a huge difference in how your body responds to oxygen supplementation.
Sports and Fitness
Give your body more time to absorb the oxygen. With some people, it takes longer for oxygen to be absorbed into the body. If you are not getting the performance enhancement results you desire when taking oxygen right before your exertion, try taking the oxygen 20-30 minutes before your exertion. This allows time for it to be absorbed into the muscles.
Warm up first before taking the oxygen. For many people, warming up prior to taking oxygen opens up the circulatory system to improve the delivery of the oxygen to the muscles. It is a known fact that warm muscles absorb up to 3 times more oxygen than cold muscles.
Try using oxygen with a different workout. The harder the workout, the more noticeable the benefits from oxygen will be. If you are not able to really quantify the benefits of oxygen, you might want to try using it on a workout that goes to failure and produces a lot of lactic acid muscle burn. The benefits will be much more noticeable and quantifiable. It will be difficult to quantify the benefits of oxygen with light, aerobic workouts.
Take more oxygen. If nothing else works, try increasing your dose until you start getting better, longer lasting results. If your training intensity is really high and you have a lot of muscle mass, you may need more oxygen than other people to get really good results.
Use more Oxygen4Energy. With other applications (general energy, hangovers, mental focus, stress, and altitude), if you are not getting results, you just need to use more oxygen. If you take 25 shots of oxygen and do not notice any benefit, it is most likely that oxygen does not work for you in that specific application. As we mentioned earlier, oxygen only works on issues related to oxygen deprivation. If your body is not responding to oxygen, it is very likely that the issues you are having are not dependent on or related to oxygen.
