Everyone’s talking about respiratory health, and we want you to be a part of the conversation! Here’s all the natural-ingredients you’ll need to start taking care of your lungs!
Honestly, who takes the time to think about lung health?
Apart from those suffering from a respiratory illness, the answer is likely: “not many!”
After all, breathing is an involuntary activity. We’ve got it covered!
Well, while our breathing may be an unconscious activity, taking care of our lungs certainly isn’t!
A healthy respiratory system is necessary to live a balanced and healthy life; yet so many of us don’t give it a second thought until it’s too late!
Well, we’re going to get you up to speed!
This blog is about to reveal the key natural ingredients you need to sustain a healthy respiratory system!
The first is vitamin C. It’s the most abundant antioxidant in the airways!
We all know that vitamin C is important for keeping us healthy... But why?
Because vitamin C is an antioxidant. Antioxidants protect our cells from the destructive effects of both foreign threats and free radicals!
The second is vitamin B6.
This vitamin is part of an essential foundation for those who struggle with respiratory health. In fact, there is a direct correlation between a deficiency in vitamin B6 and a person’s likelihood to be struggling with a condition such as asthma.
Our next ingredient is magnesium
Magnesium is an abundant mineral in the human body, and is also a very important electrolyte for maintaining healthy muscle function. What do muscles have to do with your lungs? Let us explain.
A muscle contraction is caused by calcium surrounding your muscle fibers. If there is too much calcium around these fibers, your muscle will continue to hold tension.
Magnesium allows your muscles to relax by proverbially “cutting in front” of the calcium, and thus preventing it from stiffening your muscles.
The same effect can be applied to the bronchial muscles. Magnesium helps to keep them relaxed, and make sure that ample air flows in and out of the lungs. Don’t you want to breathe easy?
Magnesium-rich foods include whole-wheat bread, cashews, and cooked spinach.
Mushrooms can be a divisive topic when it comes to pizza toppings; but when talking about respiratory health, there should be no debate.
Reishi mushrooms should be a key part of your respiratory health regimen!
Reishi mushrooms are an adaptogen. Adaptogens are a classification of herbs that must meet two criteria:
Reishi mushrooms are also particularly good at helping to support your body’s overall immune function.
A population study of 2000 participants with bronchitis symptoms found that up to 90% “felt better and reported an improved appetite” after consuming Reishi mushrooms!
This incredible combination of herbs and minerals delivers comprehensive respiratory wellness.
