FAQ

Everything you want to know about OXIGEN

What makes OXIGEN different from other waters?

OXIGEN is not just a water. It is an oxygen-enhanced recovery drink, scientifically proven to improve muscle recovery by clearing lactic acid 2x faster than regular water post-exercise. In addition, because the proprietary O4 molecule in OXIGEN is proven to deliver oxygen to your bloodstream immediately upon consumption, OXIGEN helps deliver additional proven benefits associated with increased oxygen in your body, including increased focus, increased stamina and alcohol recovery. Given these proven benefits around the area of “Recovery”, OXIGEN truly is unique in the functional water space.

What is O4 ?

O4 is the secret ingredient that delivers functional recovery in OXIGEN water and shots. It is all-natural and created via a proprietary 120-step manufacturing process that binds two O2 molecules together. O4 is also stable in water, which means it stays in the OXIGEN water until it enters your body, unlike products that rely on oxygen or hydrogen gas.

Can my body use the O4 ?

Yes, scientific studies have shown that the O4 in OXIGEN water and shots is bioavailable, meaning that it gets absorbed into your bloodstream upon consumption through capillaries in the mouth (ultra-lingual and sublingual) as well as through the stomach lining.

How are OXIGEN water and shots different?

OXIGEN water is clean-tasting distilled water with 100 times more oxygen than regular water. OXIGEN water contains the electrolyte sea salt, to help bind the two O2 molecules together to create O4 , however OXIGEN water does not have a salty taste and tastes like crisp refreshing water. OXIGEN water is great for post-exercise or all-day recovery. OXIGEN shots are a powerful O4 concentrate with 500x the oxygen content of regular water (and five times more oxygen than OXIGEN water). Because OXIGEN shots are concentrated, the sea salt does create a slightly salty taste. OXIGEN shots are perfect for a morning boost, post-workout recovery and/or an afternoon pick-me-up.

Is there ACTUAL scientific proof behind OXIGEN and its benefits?

Consumers should be skeptical of marketing claims, but unlike other beverage brands that talk about the “science” behind their products, OXIGEN has two studies that prove what we’re saying. The first is a radioactive isotope study that tagged the Activated Stabilized Oxygen (ASO or O4 ) molecules and confirmed that they were absorbed into the bloodstream upon consumption. The second study is our placebo- controlled, double-blind clinical study, published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, proving that OXIGEN water speeds muscle recovery post-exercise via lactate clearance twice as fast as regular water. So yeah, OXIGEN works. Now go ask your other water brand for their “scientific proof ”.

Is O4 better than adding an oxygen or hydrogen gas?

OXIGEN’s proprietary O4 molecule is stable in water, so you could leave an open bottle of OXIGEN on the table for two years, come back to it and it would still have the same oxygen content. By contrast, waters that claim to have added oxygen or hydrogen in gas form either lose that gas during transit, as it escapes through the packaging, or the gas escapes into the atmosphere upon opening. Some products even state directly on their labels to consume “within 30 minutes of opening”, proving that their claimed benefit escapes before it becomes bioavailable.

But there’s already oxygen in water, isn’t there?

Yes, tap and other bottled waters typically have less than 10 parts per million of oxygen in them. OXIGEN water has 1,000 parts per million and OXIGEN shots have 5,000 parts per million thanks to our added O4 .

By adding oxygen to water, aren’t you creating H2O2 ?

No, we do not change the molecular structure of the distilled water we use to make OXIGEN. We’re simply adding O4 to it, so that it becomes H2O with extra O4 .

Why is there sea salt in your products?

The sea salt plays an important role in the proprietary O4 molecule process as it helps bind the O2 molecules together to create O4 . And as you athletes know, sea salt is a great source of electrolytes, which are critical for post-exercise recovery.

Does OXIGEN contain electrolytes?

Yes, OXIGEN contains sea salt which is an electrolyte. Our waters contain 25 mg and our concentrated shots contain 175 mg, making both valuable tools for both recovery and hydration.

Don’t other waters contain electrolytes?

Don’t be fooled! Four of the leading water brands claim “Electrolytes for taste” on the front of their label, yet show 0 mg of any electrolytes on their nutritional panel. The FDA refers to this as “trace amounts”, meaning the electrolyte content is so insignificant in the product that it does not show up on the label, making the electrolyte content insignificant when it comes to rehydration benefits as well. Therefore, don’t expect any functional benefits beyond water from these brands.

What is the pH of OXIGEN?

OXIGEN is between 7.2 and 7.4 pH, similar to your body’s natural pH of 7.4. Pure or purified water has a pH of 7.

Why are you in plastic?

Our bottles do not introduce virgin (new) plastic into the environment, as we only use 100% post-consumer use rPET (recycled plastic) bottles to ensure we do our part for the planet. We are not able to package in stainless steel because all stainless steel has low grade electrical current (or potential thereof) running through it. Even the smallest amount will begin to disrupt the bond that exists in OXIGEN’s O4 molecule and therefore decrease the oxygen delivery and efficacy of the product.

What are the benefits of rPET?

Recycled PET (rPET) is 100% post-consumer use plastic (previously recycled bottles/containers). rPET production requires 2⁄3 less energy to manufacture along with 2⁄3 less sulphur dioxide, 50% less nitrous oxide, and almost 90% less water usage! Our aim is to create a closed loop system, so that no plastic bottle ever enters the environment, but rather re-enters the supply stream to become a new source of rPET. So, while our oxygenated water recovers your body, our 100% rPET bottles work to recover the planet!

Can I pour OXIGEN into my reusable water bottle?

We do not recommend drinking OXIGEN from a stainless steel container because all stainless steel has low grade electrical current (or potential thereof) running through it. That current has the ability to disrupt the bond that exists in OXIGEN’s O4 molecule and therefore decrease the efficacy of the product. Reusable bottles made from other materials are fine for use with OXIGEN.

Can I mix OXIGEN with other ingredients (such as coffee, fruit, ice, alcohol)?

The oxygen in OXIGEN, while completely stable, is active. As a result, adding organic material to the product will oxidize it on contact. Doing so won’t create a harmful interaction, but if you were to add flavor, vitamins, protein or any organic materials at all, there would be a reduction in the amount of oxygen entering your body when ingesting OXIGEN. So, although it is safe, we do not recommend mixing OXIGEN with other ingredients as it reduces the product’s efficacy. Instead, we recommend drinking OXIGEN on its own and enjoying your other ingredients with regular water.

Will I get a surge of energy if I drink OXIGEN?

Oxygen is not a stimulant, like caffeine or sugar, so you will not feel a surge of energy from drinking OXIGEN. However, proven benefits of having additional oxygen in the bloodstream include increased focus, increased stamina and “celebration” (i.e., alcohol) recovery. And because OXIGEN has no sugar or caffeine in it, you get the benefits of recovery without any rush or bumpy crashes.

Don’t I get enough oxygen from breathing?

Yes, and no. There are varying levels of pollution everywhere we go. As toxins contaminate the air, they replace and reduce the amount of available oxygen. Science also tells us that stress (emotional or physical), lack of exercise, infections, medications, viruses, drugs and alcohol, highly processed foods and polluted water can reduce the amount of bio-available oxygen in the bloodstream. Therefore, having an additional source of oxygen in your bloodstream can only be beneficial.

When should I drink OXIGEN water and shots?

Anytime is a great time to replenish your blood oxygen levels! We recommend OXIGEN water to help you feel replenished and hydrated throughout the day. OXIGEN shots can be used during or after exercise to help your muscles clear away lactic acid faster. And you can use either water or shots when your brain needs a boost midday at work, during or after a long flight to help ward off jet lag, or even before bed after you’ve had a few adult beverages!

Can I drink too much OXIGEN water or do too many OXIGEN shots?

No! OXIGEN is completely safe to use in any amount as tested by SGS USA and shown to be completely non-toxic. However, just like regular water, you can drink too much and disrupt the electrolyte balance in your body (but that’s a fair amount of water!).

Is OXIGEN water safe for kids or pets?

Yes. The ingredients in our products are distilled water, O4 (stabilized oxygen) and sea salt—a combination safe and beneficial for people (or pets) of any age. It can be consumed by infants, pregnant women and nursing mothers without any concern.

What is the shelf life of OXIGEN?

OXIGEN uses the standard "best by" date of two years for all water and shots sold in the United States.
