The Importance of Nasal Breathing

Studies have shown that nasal breathing is the ideal way to breathe. However, you may wonder why that is so. The mucous in the nose helps to filter, warm, humidify and slow down the air as we breathe. The paranasal lining also produce nitric oxide NO to help improve blood vessel dilations to increase oxygen exchange in the lungs. It is a strong antibacterial agent as well. If we use the mouth to breath, we will miss out on all the goodness of the nasal nourishment.
