Scientists have discovered why one nostril breathes better than the other
Many faced with the fact that one nostril works better than the other. Now we know why.
One nostril always breathes better than the other, it is regulated by the parasympathetic nervous system responsible for automatic processes of the body, reports ScienceAlert.
Working nostrils alternate with each other throughout the day, and usually we do not notice. This is necessary in order to improve our sense of smell: some scents are better captured with the rapid passage of the air, the others slow. Thus, congestion of one nostril provides the best sense of smell.
In addition, the change cycles helps restore the mucous membranes inside the nose, this is particularly important in cities, where the respiratory organs are exposed to dirty air. The effect of congestion is achieved by filling the tissues of the nose blood.
