Oxygen, Body & Green Friends

by Kassie Harker

Oxygen makes up 65% of the body and is responsible for the creation of 90% of bodily energy. It is essential to life.

Respiration is the intake of oxygen into the lungs and the release of carbon dioxide. Anaerobic respiration does not use oxygen and aerobic respiration uses oxygen.

Oxygen passes into the lungs and to the bloodstream through the walls of microscopic air sacs called Alveoli. Oxygen is carried within the bloodstream helping to convert nutrients into energy throughout the body. Oxygen is what makes blood red, without it, it would be blue.

Only 21% of atmospheric air is oxygen. Having clean, fresh air to breathe is important for the body to function in a healthy balanced state.

Plants are superb ways to help promote clean air quality by absorbing contaniments such as formaldehyde/benzene and filtering the air of bacteria and mold spores.

Some of the best indoor {and often hardiest/easy to grow} plants to purify your home are:

  • Spider plants
  • Peace Lilly
  • Snake plants
  • Rubber plants
  • Elephant ear philodendron
  • Aloe Vera
  • Dracaena
  • English Ivy
  • Ferns
  • Bamboo palm
