A breath of fresh air – how and why brides should boost their oxygen levels

Beds beach compressed

All brides would want to feel in tip-top shape on the big day, so keeping illness at bay in the weeks running up to the wedding is essential. Oxygen is one of the big factors in staying healthy and feeling well. However, with today’s increased pollution levels, caused through car exhausts, industrial plants and power station emissions, interfering with the amount of oxygen the body absorbs, the concentration of oxygen in the air we breathe is falling. Exact levels vary depending on where in the world you live, but this change in the air we breathe does not spell good news for our wellbeing. When the wedding day is approaching, bearing your oxygen levels in mind is essential.
