Michael's Lung Factors 60 or 120 Tablets
The cardiovascular and respiratory systems participate equally in respiration to provide oxygen and expel the waste gases. The respiratory system provides for gas exchange, intake of oxygen and elimination of carbon dioxide, whereas the cardiovascular system transports the gases in the blood between the lungs and the cells. The exchange of gases between the atmosphere, blood and cells is respiration. Specifically, the process includes ventilation inhale exhale, the utilization of oxygen by the tissues, and the giving off of carbon dioxide.
Comprehensive supplement to maintain lung function. Traditional herbs, mullein and slippery elm bark are in this formula which also contains Vitamin D, calcium and magnesium.
As a dietary supplement, take three (3) tablets with breakfast or, for optimal results, take one (1) tablet with each meal. Dosage may be increased as directed by a healthcare practitioner.

The exchange of respiratory gases between the lungs and blood takes place by diffusion across layers of alveolar and capillary walls.18 There are two types of blood reporting to the lungs. Deoxygenated blood passes through the pulmonary trunk, which divides into a left pulmonary artery that enters the left lung and a right pulmonary artery that enters the right lung. The venous return of the oxygenated blood is by way of the pulmonary veins. All four veins drain into the left atrium.
Oxygenated blood is delivered through bronchial arteries, which branch directly from the aorta. At this time the removal of carbon dioxide takes place and the blood exits via pulmonary veins. The intake of air into the lungs occurs because the air pressure inside the lungs is less than the air pressure in the atmosphere. This condition is achieved by increasing the volume size of the lungs. For inspiration inhale to occur, the lungs must expand.
The diaphragm the most important muscle of inspiration, is dome shaped skeletal muscle that forms the floor of the thoracic cavity. The base of the lung rests on the surface of the diaphragm and moves with the muscle, down during inhaling and up during exhaling. Contraction of the diaphragm causes it to flatten, lowering its dome. This increases the vertical dimension of the thoracic cavity and accounts for the movement of about 75% of the air that enters the lungs during inspiration. Breathing out is called expiration exhale. It starts when the inspiratory muscles relax. Your body's cells continuously use oxygen for the metabolic reactions that release energy from nutrient molecules and produce ATP, the substance that provides energy for cellular activity. At the same time, these reactions release carbon dioxide which must be eliminated from the body, because in excess, it is toxic to cells.
