Along with sleep, deep breathing is the simplest and most natural way to improve your health. Continue reading to learn how the increased oxygen that comes with deep breathing benefits you.

Reduce stress: breathing slower and deeper sends messages to your brain to relax. 

 

Relieve pain: breathing deeply stimulates the release of nitric oxide which reduces tension in the body.

 

Aid your immune system: fully oxygenated blood absorbs micro nutrients more effectively which strengthens the immune system. 

Improve posture: your lungs expand with deep breathing. In order to make room for this expansion, your spine must lengthen and straighten, indirectly improving your posture. 

Lower blood pressure and heart rate: the release of nitric oxide that accompanies deep breathing expands blood vessels. As the blood vessels dilate, the heart doesn’t have to work as hard to pump blood through the body. 

 

Fall asleep faster: by lowering blood pressure and heart rate, deep breathing calms the body and mind, helping you fall asleep faster.

 

Increase energy: the more oxygen in the blood the less fatigued you’ll feel.

 

Detox the body: through the release of carbon dioxide during your exhale.
