Like the articles that Drinkizz shared before, psychological stress whether it is more or less, long or short, creates free radicals in the body. During the day, when we are stressed, our bodies automatically react in a way that prepares us to fight or flee. This condition produces adrenaline, which causes the body to increase blood pressure and pulse rate, breathe faster, and increase blood flow to the muscles. They increase blood pressure and pulse rate, breathe faster, and increase blood flow to the muscles. (1)
Without exercise, relaxation and supplementing with foods and drinks containing antioxidants, the body will not be able to balance free radicals, leading to lack of energy, fatigue, and disease. and aging.
Therefore, today, Drinkizz will continue to introduce you to deep breathing exercises, which help reduce psychological stress and promote the body’s production of antioxidants.
Deep breathing exercises are one of the best ways to reduce stress in your body. When we breathe deeply, our brain releases the hormone serotonin, which calms and relaxes the body. The brain then sends this message to the entire body. The things that happen when we feel stressed, such as increased heart rate, rapid breathing, and high blood pressure, all decrease when you take deep breaths to relax.
When fully relaxed:
✅ The body releases the hormone serotonin. The hormone serotonin is a monoamine neurotransmitter, also known as the happy hormone. The happy hormone serotonin helps us improve: mood, bowel function, sleep, and the body’s ability to heal. (2)
✅ The stress hormone cortisol is lowered, which boosts the body’s antioxidant defenses by increasing blood levels of glutathione as well as the activity of antioxidant enzymes, including superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase and glutathione reductase. (3)
Now, let’s practice deep breathing with Drinkizz!
✅ First, choose a comfortable position, lying or sitting as you like.
