Health Benefits of Indoor Plants

How a green approach to the office can help reduce Sick Building Syndrome:

Office plants have become more popular over the last 30 years, with research reinforcing the belief that they improve the atmosphere, reduce stress, and sharpen concentration.

Aside from boosting oxygen, indoor plants also remove airborne toxins emitted by carpets, furniture, paints, and other synthetic products in the office. They could also alleviate health claims relating to "Sick Building Syndrome."

Plants release moisture into the air alleviating the dry atmosphere generated by air-conditioning and central heating units, as well as computers.

Absenteeism relating to "Sick Building Syndrome" also decreased when plants were part of the office, according to research by Professor Tove Fjeld of the Agricultural University in Oslo, Norway. A two-year study by Professor Fjeld found the following reductions in ailments in an office after plants were introduced:Potted Aloe Vera

Ailment Reduction
Fatigue 20%
Headache 45%
Sore/dry throat 30%
Cough 40%
Dry facial skin 25%
