Someone mentioned the other day on Twitter (are you following us yet? @mikebooost ) that they thought our canned oxygen was expensive for “air”, so we thought we’d share with you how it compares to other products.
First of all, it’s emphatically not air! We use a process to remove the oxygen from air and concentrate it to 99.5%. Then we filter and dehumidify the oxygen, create a vacuum in each tank and add the oxygen to it, together with the peppermint flavour. And we don’t use a chemical to simulate the peppermint, we use natural peppermint.
Despite the fact that our oxygen concentration is higher than other canned oxygen products, we are also the least expensive on the market.
A £10 tank of boost delivers about 100 shots of oxygen, so each shot is about 10p. We recommend between 3 and 5 shots at a time, so let’s assume that each time you take booost, it’s going to cost you 50p.
Let’s have a look now at how we compare to other sports products:
Triathletes tend to use energy gels – the recommendation is that they take a gel every 30 to 45 minutes to maintain their carb levels.
Wiggle sells Gu energy gels at £1.42 each.
So booost is less than half the price of an energy gel
Runners tend to use energy drinks to help them maintain hydration, as well as to give them sugar and sometimes to add electrolytes.
Wiggle sells the SIS energy drink at what works out to £1.21 per litre. A runner will typically consume half a litre per 30 to 45 minutes, so it will cost about 60p.
So booost is 20% cheaper than an energy drink
Whey protein is a product body builders use, especially for recovery after hard sessions.
Affordable supplements sell Sci MX whey protein for £53.99. Assuming a 25 Gram serving, that works out at 59p.
So booost is 18% cheaper than whey protein
We’re not advocating that booost should replace every other product you use. Every athlete should look after their energy levels, hydration and recovery in the way that suits their body.
We just wanted to show that booost isn’t expensive when compared to other products sports people use.
And unlike the examples given above, remember booost has no calories, no caffeine, no sugars and you won’t suffer from the classic energy “low” when it wears off.
If you’re still unsure about booost, remember we have a full money back guarantee.
No questions, no interrogation. If booost doesn’t work for you, send it back to us and we’ll refund your full payment.
So, try it.
