Breathing concentrated oxygen, either from a can or from a tank, has never been shown to improve recovery times. Many studies...no evidence.

At sea level, hemoglobin is nearly fully saturated in most people, even during maximal exercise. If anything, canned oxygen will hurt performance— induced by hyperventilation caused by paying $3 for a can of air.

I suggest a can of snake oil might be of as much use.
