App DescriptionThe amount of thoracic breathing oxygen inhalation is only 1/3 of the abdominal breathing. Abdominal breathing helps bring air predominantly into the lower parts of the lungs and by that, increase beneficial oxygenation throughout the various cells and systems of the body.
1.Breathe like a child and say Goodbye To fatness, Beer belly.
Children breathe naturally through their belly.
Newborns are world class belly breathers.
The basic idea back of abdominal breathing, or belly breathing, is this. When we are children, we do it naturally. But as we grow up, and succumb to the pressures and tensions of modern life, we forget all about it. What a surprise. Even a small amount of effort and time devoted to “re-learning” how we used to breathe as a child is well worth it.
Slow, deep breathing is a powerful anti-stress technique. When you bring air down into the lower portion of the lungs, where the oxygen exchange is most efficient, heart rate slows, blood pressure decreases, muscles relax, anxiety eases and the mind calms.
As this breathing promotes the distribution of oxygen throughout the body, it is a proven method to raise metabolism and help you lose weight.
Practicing regular deep diaphragmatic or belly breathing has many health benefits, and is one of the hidden keys to optimum wellness. In fact, people who practice deep belly breathing as little as 10 minutes a day have a much less chance of developing cancer and heart disease, handle stress more effectively and generally have better overall health and well-being.· Deep diaphragmatic breathing is one of the simplest yet most effective ways of improving one’s health with the least amount of cost and time investment.

3.Over 80% of adults breathe with their chest.
A recent research study in global discovered that 84% of the adult population uses chest breathing, that is to say, uses only the top part of the chest when it breathes. Of course, this has various side effects. For instance, we have to take more breaths per minute, while at the same time we receive less oxygen and get rid of less waste products.
