Katie Explains: Why Your Local Pharmacy Should Carry Boost Oxygen
In her latest video, Katie explains why your local pharmacy should carry Boost Oxygen. Providing easy and immediate access to portable supplemental oxygen benefits the pharmacy customer and the pharmacy owner.
Since the launch of Boost Oxygen in 2007, our portable 95% pure oxygen canisters have always been popular for tourists and visitors in high-altitude areas like Colorado and the Rocky Mountain region. However, in recent years we’ve seen growing demand for Boost Oxygen by pharmacy owners as more older adults learn about the health benefits of using supplemental oxygen and to help shortness of breath.
If your local pharmacy doesn’t carry Boost Oxygen, we hope you will ask them to learn more about us at BoostOxygen.com (or you can print this out and show it to them!)
The Reasons Why Your Pharmacy Should Carry Boost Oxygen
Making Boost Oxygen available at your local pharmacy benefits you (the customer) AND the pharmacy owner.
We can survive without food for 3-4 weeks. We can survive without water for 3-4 days. But we can only live without oxygen for 3-4 minutes. There are thousands of products available that address nutrition and hydration, but up until a decade ago few pharmacies offered oxygen-related products, besides the bulky oxygen tanks for medical-grade oxygen therapy. Boost Oxygen and our lightweight and portable supplemental oxygen canisters have changed all that!
For pharmacy owners that fill prescriptions for bulky oxygen tanks, there is often little or no profit margin. The pharmacy owner is often just providing a basic service with no benefit to their business. However, providing portable supplemental oxygen for customers creates a new profit center.
Pharmacy owners can also benefit by carrying Boost Oxygen in areas with poor air quality (near cities and airports that have elevated air pollution), high-altitude regions where there is less oxygen in the air and in states where the heat and humidity of the summer months can cause breathing issues. Some older Americans who live in or visit these areas may not qualify for medical-grade oxygen from a doctor, but they might still have a desire for easy and immediate access to Boost Oxygen supplemental oxygen at their pharmacy.
If You’re An Older Adult, Why You Should Use Boost Oxygen
Did you know that there is ONLY 21% oxygen in the air we normally breathe? The majority of the air we breathe is useless 78% nitrogen. Many people are surprised to learn that fact. In high-altitude or poor air quality areas, the oxygen content can be less. Your body needs oxygen to power your cells, tissues and organs to create the energy you need on a daily basis. Without proper oxygen levels, you can experience shortness of breath, feel sluggish, tired and even become sick.
As a pharmacy customer, you can experience the many benefits of supplemental oxygen. Boost Oxygen provides convenient and portable 95% pure “Oxygen To Go” canisters that you can use anywhere and anytime. In addition, NO PRESCRIPTION is needed to purchase Boost Oxygen!
Boost Oxygen can be an easy source of supplemental oxygen if you’re “on the go” during vacation, visiting friends and family, keeping up with the grandkids or at home during your daily activities and chores. Our portable oxygen canisters are lightweight, fit anywhere and can be recycled along with other cans and bottles. Plus, with facemasks a requirement in many places during the pandemic and people wearing masks for longer periods, Boost Oxygen works great as a quick “pick me up” of fresh oxygen.
Boost Oxygen is not a substitute for individuals who have been prescribed medical-grade oxygen for health reasons. Boost Oxygen is intended for non-medical use. Oxygen therapies that are prescribed by a doctor to treat medical conditions are defined as 99.2% (or above) pure oxygen. Boost Oxygen is 95% Pure Oxygen. Although both are produced in a similar manner, Boost Oxygen is designed for older people looking to experience the benefits of purified supplemental oxygen in the different facets of their daily life.
Today, the general public is learning more about the benefits of supplemental oxygen as an all-natural respiratory support product for athletes, older adults, people visiting or living at higher altitudes or in humid weather who experience shortness of breath, fatigue, headaches or dizziness due to oxygen deficiency.
