Lung health is on the minds of many, and it may seem like the only way to support your lungs is to avoid what’s bad for them. If “don’t smoke,” “avoid pollution,” or “stay indoors when the pollen count is high” aren’t cutting it for you, take a deep breath. There are some other things you can do to support your lung health!
In honor of ResBiotic going Prime this month, we’ve rounded up a list of five of our favorite Amazon Prime products with breathing benefits.
Amazon’s Top Rated Air Purifier
Did you know indoor air can often be more polluted than the air around you outdoors? That’s why you can’t go wrong with adding an air purifier to your home (or office space) to address any dust, pet dander, or other indoor allergens. There’s a lot to consider when selecting the air purifier right for you, but one of the most important things is making sure it has a HEPA filter.
The option your lungs will love: LEVOIT has a wide selection of air purifiers on Amazon, but the #1 pick is the LEVOIT Air Purifier for Home Allergies. Between the HEPA and VortexAir Technology and multiple filter choices to meet your needs, it promises to remove 99.97% of airborne irritants from your home.
Your Favorite Probiotic for Lung Health
The rumors are true: resB™ Lung Support is finally available on Amazon Prime! If you’re new to the world of probiotics for lung health, here’s a quick refresher.
ResBiotic’s doctor-developed probiotic formula targets the gut-lung axis with a proprietary blend of clinically studied probiotic strains (L. Plantarum, L. Acidophilus, and L. Rhamnosus) and bioactive botanicals like turmeric, holy basil, and vasaka leaf extract.
Prime Pick for a Good Night’s Sleep
Sleep troubles are common for people with breathing woes, whether it’s congestion or a more serious breathing condition. Nasal strips are typically a go-to for anyone with nasal congestion to help reduce snoring. While nose strips can help by naturally opening up your nasal passages, this isn’t a permanent fix.
The Breathe Right Original Nose Strip promises to help reduce snoring and relieve nasal congestion. This drug-free option is also expected to open up your nose up to 38% more than allergy decongestant sprays. There are also extra-strength options and one with a lavender scent.
What About Mouth Tape?
This option may seem a little unorthodox, but it’s an easy way to encourage nasal breathing while sleeping and help your oral and overall health. While most research shows mouth taping benefits like reduced snoring and tiredness, the Sleep Foundation notes it can also ease various problems like snoring, fatigue, concentration issues, bad breath, and increased thirst at night.
Azazar’s Sleep Strips is a hypoallergenic tape option to keep your mouth closed throughout the night. The small X-shaped strips are also made with a unique designed adhesive to make application and removal easy and residue-free.
Prime Peak Flow Meter Pick
This is a great (and portable) tool to better understand how well your lungs are working. The peak flow meter is commonly used to keep tabs on asthmatic symptoms. However, it’s also used as a way to practice deep breathing. The meter measures how fast air comes out of your lungs when you exhale forcefully, and it’s commonly split into three zones (green, yellow, and red) to understand your results better.
Our go-to digital option: Microlife’s Digital Peak Flow Meter lands at #3 on Amazon’s bestseller list. It has memory capabilities with time stamps to help track your measurements. It meets the standards of the American Thoracic Society and is FSA or HSA eligible.
Our keep it manual option: The HealthAndYoga™ Deep Breathing Exerciser is a great choice if you want to keep it simple. The 3-ball measurement system covers all the bases with fewer bells and whistles. Not to mention, it’s Amazon’s Choice for respiratory flow meters and the #1 bestseller.
