WITH NASAL BREATHING
The nose is a reservoir for nitric oxide, an essential gas for the maintenance of good health. By breathing through the nose, you harness various properties of nitric oxide.
Here’s why nitric oxide is so important:
Sterilizes incoming air
Plays a roll in neurotransmission (brain cells communicating with each other)
Helps blood vessels in the lungs dilate so that oxygen can be properly absorbed from the air
Assists the cardiovascular system
Reverses buildup of cholesterol
Has a relaxing effect on blood vessels
Viruses are spread with the mucus or saliva in the air. A natural filter for that is the nose. And that’s why nasal breathing is one of your first lines of defense.
Nasal breathing can be a valuable tool, because it increases the production of nitric oxide, which is has an ANTIVIRAL effect.
