Lung Capaci-T increases oxygen uptake in the lungs and helps thin mucus. It also soothes the respiratory tract.
Breathing is so automatic, we rarely think about it. As we breathe, oxygen moves into the lungs, then passes into tiny sacs called alveoli. From the alveoli, oxygen diffuses into the blood, and combines with hemoglobin in red blood cells. The red blood cells transport oxygen from the blood vessels to the cells of the body for energy production. When we have shortness of breath, less oxygen is moving into our cells, which can result in impaired cellular function. Decreased lung capacity can increase inflammation, and cause a lack of energy and endurance. It also impacts our ability to focus and concentrate.
