5 health benefits of Deep breathing exercises


Team Udayavani, Apr 30, 2020, 8:13 PM IST

Deep breathing exercises can decrease stress, relax your mind, body and can help you sleep better. By breathing deeply, you allow the diaphragm to drop downward, the rib cage to expand and create more space for the lungs to inflate.

Here are 5 benefits of deep breathing

1.One of the benefits of breathing deeply is that it helps to release tension in the diaphragm and primary breathing muscles, relieving many long-term respiratory issues such as asthma and breathlessness.

2.By taking deep breaths, your heart rate slows, more oxygen enters our blood stream and ultimately communicates with the brain to relax.

3.The movements of the diaphragm during the deep breathing exercise massages the stomach, small intestine, liver and pancreas

4.When your blood is fully oxygenated, it carries and absorbs nutrients and vitamins more efficiently. Essentially, the cleaner the blood, the harder it is for illnesses to stay put in your system.

5.The benefits of deeper breathing include increased blood flow in the digestive tract, which encourages intestinal action and improves overall digestion
