How Can Breathing Slow Down My Aging Process?
The benefits of oxygen!
Yes we all know that we must breath to stay alive, but did you know that the quality of your breath can influence how old you look?
Oxygen is used up in the body for just about every activity. Naturally, exercise and movement require oxygen in varying amounts depending upon the intensity. As you exercise, your blood saturation of oxygen is greatly decreased, it is why our body stimulates heavy breathing in demanding activities. Remember, oxygen is your most valuable fuel.
The saturation level of oxygen in your bloodstream is extremely important. The less oxygen you have, the faster your cells die and cause aging.
Smoking, drinking alcohol, stress etc. all use up oxygen. When the oxygen level is not consistently replenished properly, the level gradually decreases and cells that give you a healthy youthful glow are killed.
Cancer cannot survive in a body that is well oxygenated! Get breathing! Your organs, endocrines, brain, muscles, bones and soft tissue etc., will love you for the extra oxygen. Then reward you with healthy, younger feeling functionality.
Oxygen raises your energy level.
Your cells have ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate), it is like a rechargeable battery that provides energy to each cell. It allows the cells to maximize their potential. When your cells are working in a co-ordinated and highly functional way, your life becomes healthier, more mobile and younger feeling for an extended time. This process needs good amounts of oxygen to be successful!
So more Oxygen = more ATP = more Energy and a feeling of Youthfulness!
Different breathing techniques to get the most oxygen.
Consciously pause and take more breaths during and after any activity, it will support your blood/oxygen level.
Did you know that breathing into each side of your ribcage, uses your diaphragm properly? Breathing this way actually stabilizes the spinal support muscles.
Deep belly breathing in a slow and relaxed way oxygenates and relaxes the body. Deep coordinated inhalation brings oxygen to the tissues, while deep exhalation moves wastes from the body. Without proper breathing coordination, built up tensions cause our breathing to become erratic and shallow. By consciously replacing that habit by deeper breathing, we can bring partial benefits to both the mind and body.
