There’s nothing like the feeling of being able to breathe healthily & easily, especially if you suffer from lung or heart ailments. The importance of clean air is best understood when one is struggling to get one. In today’s scenario India is gasping for clean and fresh air.
That’s where air purifiers come in. Installing an air purifier in your home or office might help you breathe better, but big question is – Can it also improve your heart health?
Air pollution can either cause or worsen respiratory symptoms such as difficulty breathing, cough and upper airway congestion, but it has also been implicated in heart disease. Read further to know more about air purifier and your heart.
Airborne toxins are irritants, and they have chemical compositions that lead to changes in your blood chemistry, which in turn causes adverse health effects.
According to Journal of Thoracic Disease, there is an association between air particulate pollution and carotid artery disease, a condition that can lead to stroke*. Another study indicates that pollution is one of the most important risk factors for chronic disease*.
If some of these particles are eliminated in the air and exposure is reduced, ultimate benefit will be for health and heart.
According to a 2018 study published in JAMA Internal Medicine, researchers from the University of Michigan and Michigan State University found that just three days of using a relatively affordable home air purifier had significantly reduced levels of fine particulate matter inside the homes of seniors living in urban communities.
The study adds to the growing body of literature concerning the tangible benefits of installing air purifiers in homes. Air purifiers are especially important in homes located in air pollution hotspots.
Such hotspots include places near freeways, factories, power generation facilities, and even farms. These places tend to have high concentrations of particulate matter in the air from combustion processes, chemical refinement, and in the case of farms, soil erosion and fertilizer use.
How air purifiers can boost your health ?
Many of the potential benefits of using an air purifier are related to your lungs, particularly for conditions such as asthma.
By filtering out fine particles, purifiers help clean the air you breathe and lessen the potential negative effects of pollution. Purifiers have been shown to alter the blood chemistry in a way that may benefit heart health as well.
Several studies have shown improvements in blood pressure and heart rate after the installation of air purifiers. For example, one small-scale study of 35 Chinese college students found that the devices improved air quality, reducing levels of fine particulate matter by 57%. Improvements were reported in both blood pressure levels and lung functions among the students. Another study found that indoor HEPA air filters improved respiratory health in those with asthma.
Who benefits from air purifiers?
Air purifier users are most likely to reap health benefits in areas with the greatest air pollution, and that could mean living in a city with poor air quality or near a major source of pollution.
Benefits may also be higher in young children, elderly and people with heart and/or lung disease.
