Health Benefits

Indoor Plants have been proved scientifically to have many mental and physical health benefits. According to NASA, houseplants are good for health as they filter polluted indoor air and produce oxygen and fresh toxin free air.

BETTER AIR QUALITY : Indoor plants purify the air and reduce 87%of chemical pollutants & toxins in just 24 hours. Plants reduce dust and produce oxygen. Clean air creates a more welcoming environment .Plant-filled rooms contain 50-60% fewer airborne moulds and bacteria than rooms without plants.

PREVENT ILLNESS: Indoor plants can reduce the risk of general illness like

  • Common cold Congestion: Indoor plants increase humidity levels and decrease dust, reducing cold-related illnesses by more than 30 percent.
  • Drowsiness: Excess carbon dioxide can elevate drowsiness levels. Plants remove carbon dioxide from the air.
  • Stress: Indoorplants can contribute to a feeling of well being, making you calm and optimistic. Plus, plants have been known to lower blood pressure due to their stress-relieving nature.
  • Headache and Allergies: Indoor plants create oxygen and lower the carbon dioxide level, so you’re less likely to be breathing the musty, stale air that contributes to headaches.
  • Dry skin: Plants are a natural humidifier, and can soften the air and increase the moisture level in your home. Try a pot of English ivy for increased moisture if you live in a dry climate.
  • Insomnia: Since plants give off oxygen, they can help improve your night’s sleep. Some plants, like gerbera daisies, release oxygen at night, so place them by your bed for optimal oxygen while you slumber.
  • Protect Bones: Plants take in CO2 and release oxygen. This is important to your health in general and also to your bone health
  • Reduce symptoms of sick building syndrome

INCREASES PRODUCTIVITY IN OFFICES Plants absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. The increased oxygen level refreshes the air leading to increased concentration, performance and productivity and reduction of absenteeism in the workplace

AID RECOVERY: Hospital patients with plants in their room feel less anxious and are more calm and happy and recover fast.

PYSCHOLOGICAL BENEFITS: The American Horticultural Therapy Association says some of the psychological benefits of indoor plants are –

  • Plants enhance mood make you happy.
  • Increase self-esteem.
  • Improve sense of well-being.
  • Reduce stress, anxiety, and depression
  • Increase feelings of calmness, relaxation, and optimism
  • Increase sense of stability and control

Plants Enhance Cognitive Function

Keeping plants indoors make you think better. The mental benefits observed during research include:

  • Improved concentration
  • Improved memory
  • Better goal achievement
  • Heightened attention
  • A boost in creativity

In a study from Texas A&M University, workers who were in a room with two potted plants and a bouquet of flowers generated 13 percent more ideas than workers in a room with sculptures.

PLANTS HELP LOWER BACKGROUND NOISE

Plants have always been used to reduce noise from busy roads. Research has shown that indoor plants can help to reduce background noise levels inside buildings, too. Plants and their leaves absorb, diffract or reflect background noise, thereby making the environment more comfortable for the occupants. Plants are particularly good at absorbing high frequencies Plants absorb sound best in acoustically live spaces, such as those that feature hard surfaces.

Enhance the quality of your life with air purifying indoor plants.
