How plants keep us happy and healthy

Did you know that plants are good for your health? Research shows that plants are healthy and make us feel happy. In this article, you will find out how.

Healthy facts
Plants have a beneficial effect on people in the areas where they live and work. They say hospital patients recover faster when they are able to enjoy the presence of plants besides their hospital bed. A group of experimental subjects recovered from health problems such as headaches, exhaustion, coughs and eye irritation after they had put a few house plants in their living room or work environment. Their symptoms decreased by 30%.

In general plants help in reducing stress, optimise the air humidity and reduce the gathering of dust in your house or office.



Research by NASA
NASA has assembled a list of air purifying plants. This list is part of the NASA Clean Air Study, which is a research into the quality of air in space stations. All plants absorb carbondioxide and different kinds of harmful substances. They then turn it into oxygen. However, the plants that are on the NASA list remove significant amounts of benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene as well. These fancy definitions might not mean anything to you, but these are toxic fumes and plants can literally save lives purifying the air that contain these substances. The soil also contain micro-organisms that contribute to the purification of the surrounding air.

For you this means that some of your plants might be busy removing harmful substances from the air in your house, including odours from the kitchen, but also the little dust particles that are normally in the air.

These ´healthy´ plants have a biological air filter:
  • Spathiphyllum
  • Chlorophytum
  • Aglaonema
  • Philodendron
  • Dracaena
  • Ficus benjamina
  • Gerbera
All these varieties can be found on the Florismart platform.
