Your nose is incredible!!! It has a built in filtration system just for you! As it filters pathogens, it also warms and moistens the air and helps promote nitric oxide throughout the body. Nitric oxide is a much needed compound for the human body. Acting as a vasodilator, it opens our blood vessels and promotes proper blood flow. One of the many consequences of reduced blood flow is headaches! Other symptoms related to mouth breathing include periodontal disease, crooked teeth, dark circles under the eyes, and jaw pain! When mouth breathers begin using their mouths for eating and their nose for breathing, they often see a reduction in anxiety, headaches and tension.
