is one of the keys to vibrant good health.”

Improving your health is a lifestyle choice and a daily endeavor. Among the best areas to begin upgrading your self-care is:

Finding clever and affordable ways to strengthen and nourish your body (in an increasingly toxic world) is sometimes challenging.

Certain houseplants are fantastic at turning toxic air into fresh air.

From among these “superplants” are a few that have additionalqualities. They:

  1. dracaenas
  2. golden pathos
  3. boston fern
  4. syngonium
  5. dumb cane
  6. schleffera

If you have pets, the above list is not for you. Some are toxic to pets if chewed. Pet-owners must research air-purifying plants that also happen to be pet-friendly.
