Not having enough oxygen in your body can lead to muscle fatigue and cramping, while adding oxygen to the body inhibits the production of lactic acid and also helps to clear out any that may already be present. It will also help your mental clarity. Boost Oxygen comes in a range of flavours, including Peppermint, Menthol Eucalyptus, Organic Rosemary and of course Natural flavour.
