According to a Mathrubhumi report, Canada based Vitality Air Company has introduced market-ready bottled fresh air that they claim contains 95 per cent oxygen. This can be purchased online through e-commerce websites in India. 

The bottled air costs Rs 1750 per 10 litres ($25) and can be breathed 200 times, costing Rs 8.75 per breath. Due to rising demand and limited supply, one person can buy upto three bottles at a time.

The air collected from Canadian mountain ranges is first purified and then compressed before being filled into aluminium bottles weighing around 140 grams. A mask like equipment is also provided with each bottle.
