Conifers are rare on city streets (unless it's New Year's Eve). For good health and mood, such trees would not interfere with people living in dusty and noisy metropolitan areas, with a large number of cars and factories.
Air in coniferous places
In places with a large number of conifers, it breathes very well. This is due to the fact that the air there practically consists of special biological substances - phytocides. They literally kill most disease-causing bacteria. And this is one of the main reasons why sanatoriums are built mainly in a pine forest.
As scientists have found out, the air in such a forest is almost sterile. Walking through the forest full of coniferous trees, you can get rid of fatigue, nervous tension and bad mood. Gas exchange in the body is noticeably increased, so breathing becomes easier. As a result, the blood is saturated with the required amount of oxygen. The general condition of the human body is also improving.
Fight against vitamin deficiency
The needles contain essential vitamin C in the same amount as in the most useful berries, for example, currants and blackberries. It is absolutely not inferior to all modern expensive multivitamins and also contains unchanged vitamins of all groups. Eating young needles will provide the body with the required amount of vitamins, increase immunity and help prevent many diseases.
Pine cones for stroke treatment
Scientists have found that cones contain elements of the thymine group in their composition, which is very effective in treating a disease such as a stroke.
Antioxidant - dihydroquercetin (DCC)
The bark contains a very interesting substance - dihydroquercetin. It is an antioxidant of natural origin. It removes radicals many times more effectively than vitamins such as C, B and L-carnitine.
This element strengthens the immune system, prevents heart disease, normalizes cholesterol levels, increases cell regeneration, improves well-being during allergies, and has a rejuvenating effect. In general, it has a positive effect on all aspects of human health, which are susceptible to polluted urban air and constant stress.
