In case yo
u didn’t know, calling someone a “mouth breather” is an insult. Don’t be a mouth breather!
Improve your overall health AND your workout by learning to become a nose-breather.
Nasal breathing allows for more oxygen to get to active tissues in the body by releasing nitric oxide (which increases CO2 in the blood), in turn releasing oxygen.
Want to know what doesn’t effectively release that oh so crucial nitric oxide? Mouth breathing.
That means that when you mouth breathe instead of nose breathe, your cells are not getting as much oxygen, plain and simple. Symptoms include fatigue and heightened stress levels. Don’t do this to yourself!
