Stress is a normal physical response to events that make you feel threatened or upset your balance in some way. Stress may even help you rise to meet challenges – keeping you on your toes during a presentation at work, creating focus, and sharpening concentration. But beyond a certain point, stress stops being helpful and starts causing major damage to your health and quality of life.

Roughly 75 percent of the general population experiences at least some form of stress every two weeks. Half of those experience moderate or high levels of stress during the same two-week period. Millions of Americans suffer from unhealthy levels of stress at work. Stress contributes to heart disease, high blood pressure, strokes, and other illnesses in many individuals. Stress also affects the immune system, which protects us from many serious illnesses and contributes to the development of alcoholism, obesity, suicide, drug addition, cigarette addiction, and other harmful behaviors.

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.
