You’ve probably heard it; plants are good for you. But what exactly do they do for us?
An infinite number of studies have been conducted into the effect of plants on us.Zoveel zelfs dat je bijna ‘door de bomen het bos niet meer ziet’ oftewel in ons geval ‘door de planten, de jungle niet meer…’
I have compiled the most important results and listed them for you in two brand new blogs.
In this blog you will read all about the positive effects on our physical health (and in the
next blog we will tell you all about the positive effects on our mental health).
Let’s go! I’m taking you on a ……journey of discovery.
Bye gray concrete! Hello green plant!
According to scientists more and more people have started living in cities or in an environment with little greenery – also called urbanization – this leads to people having less and less nature around them. All that asphalt and gray concrete (read “unnatural materials”) have a bad effect on our health and well-being.
Nature must therefore return to the living environment of humans. Researchers have discovered that indoor plants have a very positive effect on our health and there are quite a few! Do you have a minute?
Effects on physical health

Green houseplants remove harmful substances from the air, increase the humidity and produce oxygen. Hello fresh air! Plants in the house also reduce the risk of a cold and a stuffy nose by up to 30 percent. Yippee finally an easy way to stay healthy through the winter!
