Air pollution has worsened significantly in recent years and has contributed to countless deaths due to poor health. According to the World Health Organization, air pollution kills around 7 million people annually. Data shows that over 99% of the world’s population breathes in air that exceeds the recommended quality limits. This figure is staggering, and it will come as no surprise that it has driven responses worldwide from those who aim to make our planet cleaner.
Breathing in clean air can help limit the risks to your health, so let’s take a look at the benefits and how to access clean air.
Statistics show when you breathe in clean air, your brain receives more oxygen. Increased oxygen will likely make you feel more focused, thanks to improved cellular respiration. Dirty air contains toxins which are bad for the brain’s function, so ensuring good air quality is crucial to productivity.
Lift your mood!
Oxygen intake can help boost serotonin levels in the brain, a hormone which makes you feel happier and can naturally improve your mood. Again, dirty air lacks the oxygen levels that clean air contains, leading to limited serotonin production, so lower mood.
Avoid airborne illnesses
Appropriate for the circumstances we have experienced over the past few years, polluted air carries airborne illnesses such as COVID-19 and the common flu, threatening your health. Purified air will help you avoid becoming ill.
Due to the oxygen you inhale when breathing in cleaner air, your lungs can dilate fully. As this occurs, oxygen fills your lungs and effectively removes toxins when you exhale. Not only does this strengthen the lungs as a whole, but it makes breathing easier, and with more effective breathing comes higher oxygen levels.
The crucial underlying component to improving your health is oxygen consumption. The lack of oxygen in polluted air can have many damaging effects. However, clean air carries higher amounts of oxygen, so if you are breathing clean air for the majority of the time, these benefits can counter the harmful effects of unclean air.
Oxygen allows for cellular respiration, allowing our body to perform health-enhancing processes. These processes help to lower your heart rate and blood pressure, improve digestion, reduce respiratory illnesses, and stabilise your mood.
Most importantly, it’s essential to understand how we can achieve clean air. At KSG Health, our priority is providing clean air to our customers, improving their health.
