In this episode of BTBHA, Dr. Meaghan sits down and talks about the importance of nasal breathing with Nicholas Michalak, the founder of Somnifix.Many of us are mouth breathers at night. Not only does this increase the chances of sleep apnea and snoring, but it can also lead to other health problems. Studies have shown that nose breathing provides many benefits that improve sleep, such as:
- Parasympathetic activation. This is also known as the relaxation response and it helps sleepers achieve and maintain deep sleep.
- Increased nitric oxide production. This helps to improve immunity and kill bacteria in airborne particles. It helps to reduce blood pressure by acting as a vasodilator of blood vessels.
- Optimized carbon dioxide-oxygen exchange through its slower, regulated cadence.
- Reduced discomforts caused by mouth breathing such as dry mouth, sore throat, or nasal congestion.
