At high altitude, oxygen molecules are less dense.

MyOxy is an essential first aid in case of emergency situations causing breathlessness. In cases where oxygen levels drop quickly for instance due to an ailment such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), high-intensity workout, strenuous training, air travel etc. MyOxy provides a quick temporary relief in restoring the oxygen levels.
Living in highly polluted areas can lead to increased risk of various health-related problems and lower lung functioning across age groups. MyOxy is an essential aid for immediate relief from respiratory and breathing difficulties caused due to exposure to high pollution levels.
