Why should I buy an air purifier?
If you haven’t used an air purifier before, they are a great way of cleaning the air to remove bacteria, allergens and bad odours. Indoor air pollution is linked to dizziness and headaches, and increased risk of pneumonia, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung disease, heart disease and stroke. And it can be caused by seemingly harmless by chemically laden products like paint, cleaning sprays and air fresheners.
‘There’s mounting evidence that indoor pollution can pose more of a health threat than outdoor pollutants,’ says biochemist and medical herbalist Dr Chris Etheridge. ‘Improving indoor air quality is key to tackling asthma and COPD.’
And while we can’t affect the air pollution outside directly, we can clean the indoors with an air purifier.
An air purifier usually works by sucking in air and purifying it through water and/or filters before releasing cleaner, fresher air. Using one will promote easier breathing and improved sleep. You may also notice an increase in energy levels.
Using an air purifier can be as powerful as having hundreds, if not thousands, of houseplants around the house. And it won’t need nearly as much looking after!
