Life Changing Benefits of Breathing Through Your Nose

Life changing benefits of breathing through your nose -

Nose breathing, especially the resistance to airflow that comes from exhaling through your nose, keeps the air in your lungs a little longer. This can increase the amount of oxygen that enters your bloodstream with each breath as much as 20 percent.

Much more than your mouth and throat, the nasal passages are designed to warm and humidify the air you inhale. The temperature of your breath can rise more than 40°F on the way from your nose to your lungs. This is especially important in cold weather.

Breathing through the nose helps remove a significant share of germs, irritants and bacteria from each lungful of air you breathe.

It's easier to breathe regularly when you inhale and exhale through your nose.
Nitric oxide (NO), which plays an important part in immune response and vasoregulation, is released in the nasal passages, following the air stream to the lungs.

Consequences of breathing through your mouth -

Breathing through the mouth has been proven to significantly increase the likelihood of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.

Mouth breathing can cause bad breath, because of altered bacterial population in the mouth.

Breathing by mouth results dries the tongue, teeth and gums; consequently, levels of acid in the mouth can lead to tooth decay and gum problems.

Another undesirable consequence of mouth breathing, especially when asleep, is dehydration - how often do mouth breathing sleepers awake with a dry mouth?

Some research had drawn connections between mouth breathing and asthma.
There is some research evidence that ADHD is exacerbated by mouth breathing.
Children who breathe through their mouths are at greater risk of abnormal facial structure, head posture, and impaired respiratory strength.

Remember, lightly swabbing your nasal passages with a CW Salve like Immunity Impact or Airway provides yet another benefit - open airways, added protection from viruses, sinus healing and brain health.
