Snake plant, scientifically called "Sansevieria trifasciata" is a must-have among the many houseplants available. Aside from its attractive appearance and low maintenance requirements, there are many snake plant's benefits to consider.
According to a new report, indoor air pollution is just as dangerous as outdoor air pollution. Let's take a look at the benefits of this indoor plant.
1.This is a fantastic oxygen-producing houseplant
Snake plant is one of the most oxygen-producing houseplants, according to a study's abstract published in Harvard University Extension. T
2. It removes pollutants from the air
One of the best snake plant health advantages is that it will help to eliminate harmful air contaminants in a limited way. It can absorb benzene, formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene in addition to CO2. It is a well-known fact that these cancer-causing contaminants are detrimental to our health. The famous NASA experiment on indoor plants in 1989 demonstrated that plants with more leaf surface area (leafier and bigger plants) purify the air better, and the snake plant is one of them.
3. During the night, it absorbs (carbon dioxide) CO2
According to a 2015 report on Indoor CO2 Effects, humans who breathe more carbon dioxide in their homes, workplaces, classrooms, and other environments have trouble performing and learning. Increased CO2 levels have a significant impact on our cognitive abilities and efficiency, as well as dizziness and nausea.
Snake plant, also known as Mother-in-Law's tongue is an excellent CO2 absorber. CO2 levels in offices were reduced by 4-5 snake plants, according to a study conducted at Naresuan University in Thailand with 60-80 cm tall snake plants.
4. It is useful in the treatment of allergies.
Airborne allergies can be reduced significantly by a plant that releases oxygen, lowers CO2, and absorbs harmful volatile organic compounds. One such plant is the snake plant! Even if you're using air filters and purifiers, having the snake plant around you can aid.
