How pnoe can help you

The benefits of controlled breathing have been studied extensively over the past few decades. This research shows that consciously slowing your breath can elicit significant changes in the body and brain, including:

  • Lowered blood pressure and heart rate - Slow breathing has been shown to reduce blood pressure in people with hypertension as well as lower heart rate. This induces a state of calm.

  • Reduced stress hormones - Slow breathing decreases the production of cortisol and adrenaline, hormones released during the "fight or flight" stress response. Lower levels of these hormones promote relaxation.

  • Increased HRV - Heart rate variability (HRV) refers to the variation in time between heartbeats. Higher HRV is linked to reduced anxiety and greater emotional resilience. Slow breathing techniques increase HRV.

  • Decreased inflammation - Studies have found controlled breathing can reduce inflammatory biomarkers that are elevated during stress and anxiety. This has positive implications for many chronic diseases.

  • Changes in brain waves - Slow breathing shifts the brain from active beta waves to calmer alpha waves. This brain wave pattern is associated with relaxation and meditative states.

  • Activation of the parasympathetic nervous system - Controlled breathing stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, our built-in relaxation response. This system counters the stress-inducing sympathetic nervous system.

Overall, research clearly demonstrates that purposeful, slowed breathing tricks the brain and body into unwinding out of "fight or flight" mode. The unique design of the Pnoe Necklace leverages this decades-long body of research to make the benefits of deep breathing easily accessible through an elegant breathing tool.
