When you breathe through your nose, you absorb more nitric oxide, which is one reason you can absorb 18 percent more oxygen than by mouth breathing.
“5.5-second inhales followed by 5.5-second exhales, which works out almost exactly to 5.5 breaths a minute. The results were profound, even when practiced for just five to ten minutes a day.”
Breathing is the first basic act of life and we take about 670 million breaths in a lifetime.
Breathing is so natural to us that very few scientists have studied it in detail. Breathing is thought of as just a binary activity crucial to our lives, but the way we breathe matters a lot.
We have become pretty bad at the most basic act of living: breathing. We breathe through our mouths and into our chests, and we do it way too fast.
Besides the health problems this may cause, breathing the wrong way may have another big consequence: contributing to our anxiety and other mental health problems.
