OXiGEN water and OXiGEN shot oxygenated products that contain ASO®, activated stabilized oxygen, which is a proprietary O4 molecule that’s highly stable. OXiGEN™ water is delicious distilled water, 1,000 parts per million (PPM) of stabilized oxygen and a bit of sea salt. That’s it! OXiGEN shot is a concentrate containing 5,000 PPM of stabilized oxygen. Due to its highly stable nature, the stabilized oxygen stays in the bottle even after it’s been opened. Our products aren’t O2, a compressed gas, which dissipates from the bottle upon opening.
WHAT ARE OXiGEN water AND OXiGEN shot?
WHY IS THIS DISTINCTION IMPORTANT?
Because compressed oxygen easily migrates through the plastic walls of water bottles and quickly escapes when the cap is removed. ASO®, on the other hand, remains in our water and shot containers for up to two years because it is “stable”.
WHAT OTHER INGREDIENTS ARE IN YOUR PRODUCTS BESIDES ASO®?
We like to keep things simple. Our products are made from distilled water, stabilized oxygen and trace minerals from sea salt. That’s it!
I’M STILL NOT QUITE SURE WHAT STABILIZED OXYGEN IS. CAN YOU EXPLAIN?
The term “stabilized oxygen,” when we discuss oxygenated bottled water or oxygen supplements, describes the presence of oxygen atoms that are atomically bonded to other atoms, including other oxygen atoms, so that the resulting molecule (groups of two or more atoms) can remain relatively stable in an aqueous (water) solution.
In the past, bottlers have primarily used dissolved diatomic oxygen (O2 – the same oxygen gas we breathe) to oxygenate beverages. Unfortunately, because O2 molecules are so small, as well as unstable, they either dissipate when the cap is released, they migrate out of the plastic bottles, or they react with other chemicals and ingredients in the beverages and simply disappear.
ASO®, unlike O2, is a molecule containing four (not two) oxygen atoms. The bond between the four atoms is extremely strong, making the polyatomic tetraoxygen molecule very stable. And, because of its larger size, it does not migrate through plastic bottle walls. It is the first oxygen molecule of its type to remain completely dissolved in water in high concentrations to assist in performance, stamina, endurance and mental alertness.
WHY DO YOU HAVE TO PUT SEA SALT IN YOUR WATER?
The sea salt is an important part of the proprietary process to create the O4 molecule.
WILL I FEEL A SURGE OF ENERGY WHEN I USE YOUR PRODUCTS?
A six-month, double blind, placebo controlled study completed at Indiana State University shows that the ASO® in OXiGEN™ water and OXiGEN™ shot goes to work almost immediately clearing lactic acid from the blood and boosting the body’s oxygen levels. As this happens, we experience faster recovery from exercise (which means we can push harder or get back to training sooner), as well as recovering faster from oxygen deprivation during air travel, general fatigue, or over-consumption of alcohol. Our products contain no sugar or caffeine so you won’t feel the “rush” or subsequent “crash” that’s associated with other sports drinks on the market today.
SO IS OXiGEN™ WATER A WATER OR A SPORTS DRINK?
One of the best things about OXiGEN™ water is that it falls into so many important categories including water, sports drink and oxygen supplement*! Our OXiGEN™ water has all the benefits of a so-called sports drink, while at the same time providing that all-important hydration from water, without sugar or caffeine. Our OXiGEN™ shot is a concentrated solution of the same ASO® we add to our water and delivers, in a single dose, more than five times the amount of stabilized oxygen found in our bottled beverage.
* This statement has not been evaluated by the F.D.A.
WHAT CAN DESTABILIZE ASO®?
The ASO® molecules in our products will become unstable when they come into contact with metal (like a stainless steel water bottle) or when combined with organic matter (food). The same goes for mixing OXiGEN™ water and OXiGEN™ shot with juices or anything besides water. Therefore, for best results, consume our products 30 minutes before or one hour after eating.
DON’T I GET ENOUGH OXYGEN JUST FROM BREATHING?
Yes, and no. There are varying levels of pollution everywhere we go. As toxins contaminate the air they replace oxygen. The earth’s air used to be as high as 50% oxygen. Today, it’s 20%, and in some places around the world, like Tokyo and Beijing, it’s can be less than 10%. 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 blood stream.
WHEN SHOULD I DRINK OXiGEN WATER™ AND OXiGEN SHOT™?
Beyond our recommendations for best results (30 minutes before or one hour after eating) it’s really up to you and your schedule when you choose to consume our products. We work with everyone from pro athletes to regular folks with a busy and active lifestyle. Both are known to drink a bottle of OXiGEN™ water first thing in the morning in order to wake up their system, while some will then drink a bottle or take an OXiGEN™ shot just before, during or right after exercise, or simply when they feel like they need a boost during the day. Our products are beneficial at any time of the day or night.
CAN I TAKE TOO MUCH?
There are limits to how much water an individual can consume. However, the active ingredient (ASO®) in our products is completely safe to consume in any amount.
CAN PETS/ANIMALS USE OXiGEN™?
Absolutely. The active ingredient in our products, ASO®, has been used for many years by professional trainers and large animal veterinarians in the horse breeding and racing industry.
WHAT ABOUT SMALL CHILDREN?
Yes. The ingredients in our products are distilled water, ASO® stabilized oxygen and sea salt – a combination safe and beneficial for people of any age. It can be consumed by infants, pregnant women and nursing mothers without any concern of toxicity.
CAN I USE OXiGEN™ WITH OTHER NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS?
Our products should not be taken with other dietary supplements or prescription medication because ingredients in these formulations may destabilize the oxygen molecules in ASO®. However, both OXiGEN™ water and OXiGEN™ shot may be used in addition to these formulations if done so 30 minutes before or an hour after taking them.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS FDA APPROVED?
The active ingredient in both OXiGEN™ water and OXiGEN™ shot, ASO®, falls under the FDA guidelines for dietary supplements. It is not regulated by the FDA.
HOW DOES THE OXYGEN IN YOUR PRODUCTS GET INTO THE BLOODSTREAM?
Independent research shows that ASO® molecules in OXiGEN are safely and easily absorbed into the bloodstream through capillaries in the mouth (sublingual absorption) as well as through the stomach lining, where they are then transported directly to the tissues.
