What they contain are caffeine, sugars, carbs, and calories that can be harmful to your health or and also can cause you to crash after their effects expire – forcing you to drink even more to avoid that crash. The same can be said of the effect of coffee on your body. gO2 therapy has no caffeine, sugar, carbs, or calories. So, there is no risk of a sugar crash.
gO2 therapy is completely natural and more relaxing and restorative than energy drinks or coffee. Breathing gO2 therapy may help improve cognitive performance, memory, and reaction time and also makes you feel more alert and energetic.
Question: Is gO2 therapy flammable?
ANSWER: This is by far the most common misconception we see posted about oxygen. Oxygen itself is not flammable and does not burn.

In other words, oxygen isn’t the problem – it’s the existing fire.
