It’s Time to Take a Deep Breath

Air Pollution

Our lungs fuel us with air, sustaining us, extracting the oxygen and passing it into the blood stream. However, because lungs process air, they are the only internal organs that are constantly exposed to the external environment. Central to the respiratory system, they breathe in between 2,100 and 2,400 gallons of air each day—the amount needed to oxygenate the 2,400 gallons or so of blood that is pumped through the heart daily.

However, our lungs face one mortal enemy: deteriorating air quality. There are six common air pollutants: carbon monoxide, ozone, lead, nitrogen dioxide, particulate matter, and sulfur dioxide. Short term exposures to some of these pollutants have adverse respiratory effects including airway inflammation, reduction in lung function, difficulty breathing, and even premature death.

With all the harmful and toxic substance polluting the air we breathe today, it becomes crucial that we take extra care of our lungs. A great way to start is with Canfo’s LungCare™, a 100% natural herbal supplement that supports a healthy respiratory system*. It helps combat daily pollutants, including second hand smoke, and smoker’s cough.
