Mouth Breathing Vs Nose Breathing

I just took for granted I could get more oxygen through my mouth than my nose but it turns out my nose really does a better job. I never thought about it but the nose heats, filters, humidifies, and increases nitric oxide in my system. Follow your nose.

Here is a link I found about the added benefits. Did you know this? I hear yoga is all about nose breathing. Real men don’t go to yoga class. 🙂

  1. Asserting supremacy of “nose breathing” is speciesist and hurtful to the overwhelming majority of organisms on our planet who do not have noses or, for that matter, ingest oxygen.  What’s next, covert use of the OK emoji 👌👌👌👌as a dog-whistle reference to oxygen superiority?

    Black nitrogen matters.

  2. If you ever have bum upper molars replaced by implants, you will appreciate how much you want your sinuses to love you.   Determine whether your periodontist uses hydraulic sinus lift.  If not…run!

    Black nitrogen matters.

    I knew you would try to bring N into the conversation. Azote is the preferred term.

    The name nitrogène was suggested by French chemist Jean-Antoine-Claude Chaptal in 1790 when it was found that nitrogen was present in nitric acid and nitrates. Antoine Lavoisier suggested instead the name azote, from the Greek ἀζωτικός “no life”, as it is an asphyxiant gas; this name is instead used in many languages, such as French, Russian, Romanian and Turkish, and appears in the English names of some nitrogen compounds such as hydrazine, azides and azo compounds.

    The «azote»-based terminology is also based upon incomplete information at the time which is now known to be incorrect, or at least misleading.  Nitrogen is one of the four key molecules of life (they’re easy to remember: “CHON”) and, in fact, the supply of fixed nitrogen (nitrogen bound to other elements than itself in N₂ gas) is one of the main bottlenecks in the biosphere’s ability to produce life.  Today, humans have largely taken over the biosphere’s production of fixed nitrogen through industrial processes such as the Haber-Bosch process, and four out of five nitrogen atoms in your body were fixed from the atmosphere in a fertiliser manufacturing factory.

    Since when has wrong information stopped people from naming things?

  6. I didn’t realize vets can tell if an animal is sick if they breathe through the mouth. Better sleep seems to be had by taping mouths at night. I recommend Richard to keep the tape on during the day.

    Never—oxygen is so-named because Antoine Lavoisier believed the element was a component of all acids, and named it after the Greek root ὀξύς, meaning “sharp”, as in the taste of acids.  This was completely incorrect: it is hydrogen which is the basis of acids, and many acids contain no oxygen.  Literally, “oxygen” means “giving rise to acids” (wrong), and “hydrogen” means “giving rise to water” (correct, in part).  “Helium” means “giving rise to balloons”.

    Wow! Multicolored lightning! You don’t see this everyday. Bubba how about some 24 hour tape for you?

    I am seeing a benefit to my throat by consciously closing my mouth when I sleep or exercise. Nasal breathing relaxes me.

    Have you tried alternate nostril breathing? I hear it goes great with a nice Chard. Try it on your yoga mat.

    No, but I tried deep breathing because a special forces guy told me it connects one to the autonomous autonomic nervous system of the body.  He was right.
