Benefits of breathing through the nose compared to mouth

Nasal breathing is the normal way to breathe. The mouth is for eating and the nose is for breathing.

Start watching people around you—your family, your co-workers. You’ll notice that a lot of people mouth breathe by default. Mouth breathing elevates blood pressure and heart rate, worsens asthma, allergies, and deprives the heart, brain, and other organs of optimal oxygenation and also cause your gums to become reddish and painful.

Nasal breathing is important because of nitric oxide, which your body produces in the sinuses(spaces in the head ). When you breathe via the nose, you get the benefits of nitric oxide, which are extraordinary. The body produces 25% of its nitric oxide from nose breathing. Breathe through your mouth and you will be short on nitric oxide.

Nitric oxide enhances memory and learning, regulates blood pressure, breathing .reduces inflammation, improves sleep quality, increases endurance and strength, and improves immune function.

When you spend more time nose breathing during sleep at night, you:

● Wake up feeling rested
● Reduce high blood pressure and risk of heart disease
● Reduce anxiety and depression
● Improve concentration and memory
● Reduce attention deficit and hyperactivity
● Relieve headaches, migraines, back pain, sciatica, and neuralgia
● Improve weight loss and digestion
● Strengthen your immune system and resistance to the common cold

Ever woken up with a dry mouth? Saliva is not flowing as it should be this could be as result breathing. This isn’t normal either. A dry mouth promotes cavities because the teeth are not being bathed in saliva, which helps teeth resist tooth decay and mouth breathing can also be the cause of bad breath.
