There are many products for daily use, at home and work, that are sources of toxic gases and chemicals that stimulate the onset of asthma, allergies and spontaneous dizziness. A recent laboratory study from the State University of New York found that certain home plants that are easy to find and care for surprisingly improve the quality of the air we breathe. Then it does not hurt to turn our desks and houses into small forests to prevent respiratory diseases.
The bromeliad, with thick trunks and long leaves, a common plant in Latin America, can clean up to 80% of six different chemicals in confined spaces. Lucky bamboo, belonging to the Dracaena genus, demonstrated the ability to clean the air quality of acetone debris by up to 94%, in less than 12 hours.
The malamadre or tie of love, popularly known as ribbon or spider, from the first moment it was placed in a highly polluted space, the levels of VOC, volatile organic compounds, began to drop.
The spatifilo, also known as the flower of peace, the veil of the wind or the flower of the dead, and which can survive in little light and water, also cleanses environments of chemicals. To this plant is added the mother-in-law's tongue, also known as tiger's tongue, sansevierias or sword of Saint George; This variety is widely used in interior decoration and has the advantage of surviving with minimal care and attention.
Finally, the potus, Epipremnum aureum, which is also very easy to get and care for, makes it a favorite in offices and shopping centers.
