Understanding Repiratory Health - Natural Repiratory Health Supplements, Herbs & Nutrients


Our respiratory system has a big job in the body; it allows us to breathe 22,000 times a day! Without even thinking about it, our lungs and airways exchange carbon dioxide for oxygen every single time we take a breath. For some people, breathing isn't as easy. Respiratory disorders fall into either the 'viral' or 'chronic' category. Viruses like those that cause the common flu can cause temporary respiratory and breathing problems. If you’ve ever had a cold, you have probably experienced mucus buildup, trouble breathing and cough, which are commonly associated with viral infections. Other more chronic respiratory conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis cause significant respiratory dysfunction and are leading contributors to cause of death. Research shows that most chronic respiratory disorders are largely preventable as they are caused by environmental factors which damage the airways including smoke, pollutants and toxins. Nutritional therapies for preventing and improving respiratory health include antioxidants which protect the lungs, airways and, manage mucus buildup to reduce breathing obstruction.
