Roughly 60 million Americans suffer from insomnia, searching for relief to catch a few ZZZs. From sipping relaxing hot tea to banning screen time before bed, few consider the quality of indoor air and its impact on your sleep.
A study called the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) discovered a correlation between exposure to air pollution and low quality air, affecting the quality of sleep of over 1,800 people in the United States throughout 6 cities. Sleep quality was measured by the total amount of time spent sleeping and the frequency of awakenings during the night.
When comparing the data, researchers discovered that there is a 60% chance of lesser sleep quality with pollutants in the air. This amounted to participants staying asleep less than 88% of the time during their duration spent in bed. A larger amount of low quality air indicated less sleep time.
It’s hypothesized that pollutants and allergens are irritating airways and resulting in worse sleep quality. The good news is that air purifiers, especially one such as BetterAir, can reduce allergens and potentially improve sleep quality.
How Does BetterAir Help to Improve Sleep Quality?
BetterAir is an air purifier without a filter. It uses probiotics to balance the air quality in your home, resulting in an environment much like the outdoors. This is ideal since the human body is designed to breathe in outdoor air which contains a mix of good and bad bacteria.
Eliminating all allergens isn’t the goal. This is because when an allergen is reintroduced inside of your home, your airways will become irritated once again. Probiotics absorb bad bacteria, balance your ecological indoor environment while reducing the irritants that harm your sleep.
Your body’s adjustment to the reduced allergens also helps strengthen your immune system. The result is an improved biome allowing you to sleep better and longer.
How Else Can Better Air Help You Sleep?
While BetterAir removes irritants from the air, it can also improve asthmatic symptoms which can decrease sleep quality. The threats from allergens caused by pet dander, dust mites, and even mold will also be eliminated.
Probiotics are a powerful yet natural organisms that can enhance the quality of your life on many levels. That’s why we use probiotics in our air purifier, unlike any other product on the market.
