Did you know that succulents have health benefits in your home.
They help you breathe
During the process of photosynthesis, plants release oxygen, however, at night most plants respire like humans, releasing carbon dioxide. Succulents, and a few other plants like orchids and areca palms, keep producing oxygen all through the night.

They purify the air
Succulents, like snake plant and aloe vera, are excellent at cleansing the air and removing toxins. NASA’s research found that they are able of removing 87 percent of volatile organic compounds (VOC).

They help prevent diseases
About 10 percent of the moisture in the atmosphere is water released by plants. The same applies to your home, the more plants you have, especially in groupings, the better you can improve the humidity in your home that can prevent dry skin, colds, sore throat and dry cough. The study by Agricultural University of Norway found a 60 percent decrease in sickness rates in offices with plants.

They help you focus
A number of studies of both students and workers have found that concentration, attentiveness and brain capabilities improve when studying or working with plants in the room. A University of Michigan study found that memory retention improved by as much as 20 percent when plants were present. Small plants like succulents are especially beneficial at work, as they don’t take up a lot of space on your desk.

They aid in quicker recovery
Succulents can contribute to reducing flu-like symptoms, headaches, fever and coughs. According to researchers at Kansas State University, hospital patients with plants in their rooms required less pain medication, had lower blood pressure and heart rate and experienced less fatigue and anxiety.
