Why does the brain need oxygen?

As we transition into adulthood and face the demands of busy and stressful lives, the quality of the air we breathe becomes compromised due to pollution and artificially created oxygen. These factors can have a negative impact on our well-being and health. However, there is a solution. Plant-based sources offer a way to enhance the oxygen content in our bodies through our diet, leading an improvement in the quality oxygen in our blood. Incorporating oxygen-rich foods into our meals can fortify our immune system and promote better overall health.

The oxygen supply on airplanes is artificially generated, leading to potential jet lag, dehydration, and headaches during flights. Seeking fresh air outdoors is essential for improved well-being, enhanced alertness, and increased happiness. Nature offers higher-quality oxygen, promoting better overall health than enclosed spaces.

Boosting oxygen levels in the bloodstream can be achieved through chlorophyll-rich foods like dark leafy greens, with kale standing out as an excellent option. Additionally, superfoods like Chlorella, a microalgae, can elevate oxygen levels, benefiting the body and brain, while countering negative side effects.

To foster mental health, establishing daily routines is vital. Without structure, individuals may develop negative thinking patterns, depression, anxiety, or compulsive behaviors. Creating a new healthy routine involves committing to a change, planning and writing down the objectives for accountability, and consistently taking intentional actions toward those goals.

While forming healthy habits may take time and persistence, it’s essential to stay encouraged and not be disheartened by occasional setbacks. Just like learning to walk as a baby, our brains adapt through repetition and perseverance. Embrace the process, catch yourself when straying, and return to the new routine daily until it becomes ingrained.
