With the latest news of oxygen shortage during the pandemic and how important it is to maintain good oxygen levels in your blood, we bring to you below a few guidelines and tips on how to achieve that.
Dyspnea is the feeling of being out of breath and this normally happens to people who suffer from a disease called Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disease. Most recently it is said that those who contact COVID-19 experience a massive lowering and decline in oxygen levels which may prove fatal if oxygen is not given in time.
It is always better to try natural ways of maintaining oxygen levels instead of being dependant on oxygen cylinders. Prevention as they say is better than cure.
The first step is to change your diet – Increase your antioxidant intake. Eat blueberries, cranberries, strawberries, plums, blackberries, red kidney beans, etc these can either be eaten by themselves or made into smoothies or milkshakes and consumed. These allow the body to use oxygen more effectively and utilize it better. Soybeans, walnuts, flaxseeds provide fatty acids -Vitamin F, which help in increasing oxygen.
The next important thing is to be active and work out. This increases the flow of oxygen in the tour system. Just a simple half an hour of brisk walking can work wonders for tour mood, good health, and stress levels.
The next important thing is to clean the air. Use air purifiers at home, in the car, and in your workplace and improve the quality of air that you inhale. This reduces pollution and ensures that you are breathing in good quality air.
The last most important thing that we will mention here is to hydrate yourself. the human body is made up of approximately 60% water. Water is very critical for many body functions so stay hydrated and drink enough water. You must drink filtered water. Alcohol, high sodium-rich foods, and caffeinated beverages all work towards lowering your oxygen levels and are harmful so take care not to indulge in those.
If the above few points are kept in mind your oxygen levels will be well maintained!
