Adding super plants into your home could make a significant difference in your overall health.
Improving your health is a lifestyle choice and a daily endeavor. Among the best areas to begin upgrading your self-care is:
- the water you drink
- the air that you breathe
Finding clever and affordable ways to strengthen and nourish your body (in an increasingly toxic world) is sometimes challenging.
Fortunately, some health tricks are easy, cheap and fun.
Specific houseplants – called super plants – are an effective way to potentially make an improvement in your overall health.
Did you already know that formaldehyde is the number-one indoor air pollutant?
Formaldehyde “off-gasses” from walls, furniture, rugs, and more.
Not so good for the ol’ lung tissue!
Having access to fresh, chemical-free air is easier to achieve than you think – thanks to super plants.
Super Plants Clean the Air that You Breathe
These days, the quality of the air that we breathe is a bigger issue than we like to admit – and indoor air-quality is even more important – so I was glad to discover recently that there are super plants that have been scientifically proven to remove significant amounts of toxins from the air inside of our homes.
…few things are healthier than having pure air to breathe”
From among these “superplants” are a few that have additional qualities. They:
- are fuller-bodied
- are more resistant to mites
- do not require abundant direct sunlight and like darker rooms
Here’s a list of my ideal super plants for the modern home. You can ask about them at your local garden center:
- golden pathos
- boston fern
- dumb cane
Of course, there are more than just six super plants that clean indoor air, but in my research I discovered that these are among the easiest to grow and keep in your home.
If you have pets, the above list is not for you. Some are toxic to pets if chewed. Pet-owners must research air-purifying plants that also happen to be pet-friendly.
