Optimize Your Respiratory System

(The Top 9-Science Backed Lung Supplements: COVID-19 and More)

How often do you consciously take a breath?

Not much at all — because breathing occurs unconsciously

The respiratory center in the brain controls how many breaths we take along with how much air we inhale and exhale.

Delivering oxygen to the cells of the body’s tissues while removing carbon dioxide, a cellular waste product, is the core function of the respiratory system.

The respiratory system works with the circulatory system distributing immune system oxygen into blood vessels and circulating oxygenated blood to the tissues and cells of the body.

The lungs, nasal cavity, and trachea are the dominant structures of the human respiratory system.

We breathe about 15 times per minute on average.

As air fills our lungs on each inhalation, air exits with every following exhalation.

Air containing oxygen (O2) crosses the lung tissue, entering the bloodstream while traveling to other organs and tissues.

As a requirement for metabolic functions, O2 causes metabolic reactions producing ATP energy.

These reactions eliminate toxic carbon dioxide (CO2) as a by-product.

Carbon dioxide exits the cells, enters the bloodstream, and travels back to the lungs, before expulsion through exhalation.

We divide the respiratory tract into upper and lower respiratory tracts.

While the upper includes nasal cavities, nose, pharynx, sinuses, and upper larynx, the lower includes the lower larynx, the trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, and the alveoli.
