Air

The air we breathe plays an essential role in our health.  Long term exposure to polluted air can compromise the health and functioning of the cells and organs of our body, this can lead to increased susceptibility to infections and various forms of disease.

In the last blog we discussed air and clean air day on June 5th 2024, hope it was a good one to you. 

The air we breathe contains oxygen and other gases.  The respiratory system’s main job is to move fresh air into your body while removing waste gases.  Once in the lungs, oxygen is moved into the bloodstream.  Once in the bloodstream the oxygen travels to each cell in the body, oxygen is exchanged for a waste gas called carbon dioxide.

Without air means no oxygen.  If there were no oxygen molecules in the air, there would be fewer particles for light to emit through.  All plants and animals need oxygen to carry out various metabolic activities.  Without air life on earth would end.

Fresh air cleans your cells and therefore your body but also boosts your mood, lowers your heart rate, increases your energy levels and even improves digestion. This is why it is important that we breathe fresh air, it helps stimulate the brain, leading to problem solving and innovative thinking.  It also has the ability to improve focus, and concentration.  This is a great reason to get outdoors when you need a moment of mental clarity.

Look at all the health benefits that a walk in nature will do!
