Best Plants for O2, Air Quality & Air Purification

I love a Ted Talk, it’s in my ‘happiness quadrant’ (an activity that has present and future benefits)

I have more allergies than you could shake a stick at, ever since primary school I was always the wheezy kid that passed out every time someone used glue or air freshener.

I’ve made some big progress by changing my diet – dairy, wheat and sugar free, to reduce mucus and inflammation but I still struggle, especially in the mornings.

I’m going to give these three plants a go, as recommended by Kamal Meattle in his great Ted Talk:

For Oxygen Production:

MotherinLaw’s Tongue

Areca Palm

For Air Purification:

The Money Plant

How does this relate to MMA?

Hopefully, sports nutrition has moved away from pre and post training drinks now, and focuses on a base of wellbeing, including low inflammation and good general health. These plants actually improved Kamal’s lung function, improved employees energy levels and productivity and reduced the incidence of headaches and eye irritation. All good stuff for recovery and general energy and alertness.

Kamal used these plants to improve conditions in an office environment in Delhi, but I’m hoping that they’ll help me in North Wales with asthma and allergies…I will update soon!
