5 tips to boost your blood oxygen levels naturally

Apr 25, 2021 10:34 IST | By Editorji News Desk

When it comes to oxygenating your body, every little bit counts. If you’re worried about your blood oxygen or just want to make sure you're doing all that you can for your respiratory system.  

Here are some things you can do at home to improve your O2 levels:  

DRINK WATER 

The human body is about 60 per cent water, making the liquid a key resource for all bodily processes. To absorb oxygen and expel carbon dioxide, our lungs need to be hydrated. So, drink up!  

STAY ACTIVE  

Regular exercise doesn’t just improve strength and endurance, it also equips our body to better utilize oxygen while removing waste through the lymphatic system. Even a small amount of movement can help.  

EAT IRON-RICH FOODS 

Iron is an important dietary mineral that helps the body in producing red blood cells, the cells that transport blood around the body. Eat meats, poultry, beans, legumes and green leafy vegetables to avoid an iron deficiency.  

INDOOR PLANTS

Plants inhale carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen so it makes sense to add some indoor plants to your living space. Go for plants that are easy to take care of and hard to kill. 

DEEP BREATHING  

Practice mindful breathing exercises to improve your oxygen intake. A 10–15 minute routine of attentive breathing exercises can do wonders for both your oxygenation and mental health.
