Protecting Your Respiratory Health

Protecting your lung health is essential, as oxygen supports every organ, muscle, and tissue in the human body. Without adequate levels of oxygen the brain cannot function properly, and as humans we would fail to exist. Yet, there are many everyday hazards to respiratory health. Some of them we can avoid, and others are more difficult to steer clear from.

We’re here to help you identify things that could be harming your lungs, and the rest of your body, without you even realizing. Information is power and we are here to share the facts with our readers, so that you can make informed decisions and take control of your health.

What Is Lung Health?

You may think that staying away from cigarettes, cigars, and vapes is enough to protect your lungs. But do you get seasonal allergies? Do you have asthma? Do you consider the amount of air pollution in the city you live in, or how often you change the air filters in your home or apartment?

What if we told you that even the food you eat can affect your respiratory health? Once you get down into it, there’s a whole other world of lung health that doesn’t relate to smoking. You might be surprised to learn the effects that your surroundings can have on your lungs, and in turn, what it does to the rest of your body.

GR8NESS Provides Answers

When you’re seeking information, GR8NESS is here to provide you with answers. Are you wondering if your symptoms are allergies or something more serious? We have some info that can help you decipher differences in the two. Or, are you wondering what the color of your phlegm means? Eek! We’ve been there, so we did some digging to bring the answers to you.

We also look at some of the broader questions in today’s society that affects the respiratory health of many people at large. For example, what is the link between air pollution, asthma, and obesity in children? What do the regional warnings really mean when they signal low air quality? And how do you protect yourself?

Actionable Steps

We’re not just here to spew information at you, but instead to provide you with actionable steps that you can take to protect your respiratory health. GR8NESS provides advice on what foods to incorporate into your diet to protect your lungs, exercise tips and routines to maximize lung capacity and keep your lungs strong, and gives insight regarding how to monitor and respond to poor air quality.

Plus, if you’re looking for GR8 plants to purify the air inside your home, we have some recommendations for you. We can even tell you what cleaning supplies to stay away from, because, in reality, even some of the things that we think are helping us may hurt our lung health in the end.

Interactive Content

Along with providing information and actionable steps that you can take to protect your respiratory function, we invite you to follow along with GR8NESS interactive content. No one wants to read long articles every day. We certainly don’t. But we do love to take quizzes, vote in polls, and watch fun videos. We’re betting you do, too.
