Health benefits of fresh air

The air that you breathe in any indoor location is not as fresh as your body needs to remain healthy. This is why health experts highly recommend taking a break from the indoor air and to go out to enjoy fresh air.  If however you cannot go outside to get the fresh air that your body needs to function correctly you need a viable alternative.


It works in exactly the same way as when you have poor local water quality,  you seek an alternative and hence the availability of high-quality bottled water. 


GoodAir is simply making high-quality bottled air available,  your body needs it more than it needs water and your body needs it more than food. Air is the most important component to daily life and you need to be thinking about it more than you probably are right now.


There are many health benefits of fresh air, such as:


Fresh air cleans the lungs and helps to bring more oxygen to the cells and improves the cleansing action of your lungs. When you exhale and breathe out through your lungs, you release airborne toxins from your body. The increased oxygen level in the body brings with it increased energy to do the things you need to do.


More oxygen also brings greater clarity to the brain, which uses twenty percent of our body’s oxygen in order to function correctly. When you breathe fresh air you automatically think better as compared to when you remain inside a room for a longer period of time.   You know this already don't you?  That's why  you get up and take a walk during your working day, it refreshes your mind and your body.


Air pollution is the introduction of particulates, biological molecules, and other harmful materials into the atmosphere, causing diseases, death to humans, damage to other living organisms such as animals and food crops, as well as the natural or built environment.

The World Health Organisation has issued a stark new warning about deadly levels of pollution in many of the world’s biggest cities, claiming poor air quality is killing millions and threatening to overwhelm health services across the globe.


Global air pollution has worsened since 2014 in hundreds of already blighted urban areas, the WHO (World Health Organisation) says there is now a global “public health emergency” that will have untold financial implications for governments.


The toxic haze blanketing cities can be clearly seen from the international space station. Recent data has revealed that several streets in London had exceeded their annual limits for nitrogen dioxide emissions just a few days into 2016.

Around the world, Milan, Shenyang, Tehran, Seoul, and Rio de Janeiro reported the worst levels of sulfur dioxide--a pollutant directly harmful to humans. Paris and Madrid also made the top 10 in the list, produced by a U.N. monitoring network.

Only 1 percent of the China's 560 million city dwellers breath air considered safe by European Union standards according to a World Bank study. Air pollution is particularly bad in the rust belt areas of northeastern China. A study done by the World Health Organization (WHO​) estimated that the amount of airborne suspended particulates in northern China are almost 20 times what WHO considers a safe level.
