Most people tend to have dysfunctional breathing patterns and by that we tend to use our mouths to breath . This is not the best way for us as humans to breath . We seem to have forgotten that we have a nose on the front of our face which was designed especially for this purpose .Mouth breathing doesn’t allow for filtration or warming of the intake of air .When we use our nose the tiny hair follicles and membranes capture dirt and particles and allows for a warming of the air to take place which in turn ,due to the slower intake it also allows our lungs to better absorb oxygen .For enhancing performance and improving day to day life Nasal breathing is the way forward .
