In today’s episode we will explore the role that respiration, oxygen and carbon dioxide play in slowing down the rate and pace of biological aging for enhanced vitality. You will learn the exact breath rate that increases oxygen saturation, immune, cardiac, neurological and endocrine function while also enhancing longevity. And you will experience 3 key breathing exercises and respiration practices to increase your health capacity so you can live better, longer beginning today.
