Here at PDS, we take pride in highlighting some of our incredible exhibitors. We know these companies have the potential to revolutionize pharmacies just like yours through their products and services. We’re excited to introduce Boost Oxygen. Read on for their sponsored blog post about how supplemental oxygen can be a unique way to diversify your revenue.
Supplemental Oxygen Can Be A Profit Center For Your Independent Pharmacy
The human body needs three things to survive:
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 tanks for medical-grade oxygen therapy.
The general public is learning more about the benefits of supplemental oxygen as an all-natural respiratory support product for athletes, senior citizens and people visiting or living at higher altitudes or in humid weather who experience shortness of breath, fatigue, headaches or dizziness due to oxygen deficiency.
Supplemental oxygen has recently become more important to offset the symptoms of facemask fatigue as people wear protective masks for longer periods at work or outdoors. Facemask fatigue can be compared to the effects of hypoxia as masks can restrict your normal oxygen intake.
Why Pure Supplemental Oxygen is so Important
Most people aren’t aware that the air we breathe contains only around 21% oxygen. At higher elevations, that number can be much less. That’s also not taking into account any pollution in the air. The majority of air is comprised of 78% nitrogen. Oxygen is vital for our cells to produce the energy to power our organs, and when you become oxygen deficient you can experience the symptoms of hypoxia.
Now, think about how much regular air you breathe when you’re outside exercising or working out. Every cell in your body is designed to burn oxygen – it’s the basic fuel for cell metabolism. Cut back on oxygen and all of those cellular processes become sluggish… you start to feel fatigued or short of breath. Less oxygen equates to cells losing the energy they need to repair DNA. Your immune system begins to weaken. Your risk of becoming sick escalates. Imagine how much the body could benefit from supplemental oxygen?
The Advantages of Offering Supplemental Oxygen in Your Pharmacy
For pharmacies 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 your customers creates a new profit center. From the consumer standpoint, not everyone qualifies for or needs to be on continuous prescription medical-grade oxygen, but many would like to increase their oxygen level and experience the benefits of supplemental oxygen for many reasons.
The Advantages of Supplemental Oxygen VS. Other Supplements
Supplemental oxygen is all-natural, unlike the stimulants and energy drinks you see at a gas station or grocery store, which promise a quick fix for drowsiness. What they contain are caffeine, sugars, carbs and calories that can be harmful to your health or cause you to crash after their effects expire – forcing you to drink even more to avoid that crash. The same can be said about the effect of coffee on your body. Supplemental oxygen has no caffeine, sugar, carbs, or calories. There is no sugar crash with oxygen. Supplemental oxygen is completely natural and more relaxing and restorative than energy drinks or coffee.
