Do you get enough terpenes in your respiratory diet? Terpenes are naturally occurring, aromatic molecules produced by plants, which provide a variety of health benefits. When we breathe in terpenes, we breathe in wellness. Take this quiz to find out if you are breathing in enough terpenes to help you achieve wellness.
Are you Terpene Deficient?
So, are you terpene deficient?
If you scored 7 or less:
We’re going to say you’re terpene deficient! Chances are, you are a city dweller and love all things on the go. You mostly spend your days (and nights) indoors and get very little time immersed in nature—you could benefit from more time there. You may find yourself struggling with symptoms of a variety of ailments, both physical and emotional.
We recommend you supplement your respiratory diet with therapeutic air®, like that available in our MONQ Feel Nature® line. Our personal diffusers are perfect for breathing terpene-rich therapeutic air anywhere.
If you scored between 8 and 14:
You may be experiencing some symptoms of terpene deficiency. Based on your answers, it’s fair to say you likely live a suburban lifestyle, with opportunities to get outdoors on a regular basis. Whether or not you take advantage of those opportunities—well, that ebbs and flows with work and family obligations, friends, and weather. Because our bodies have evolved to breathe terpene-rich air, you may feel an immediate boost by breathing in more, and you may even experience fewer discomforts simply by adding terpenes to your daily life. MONQ makes it easy to do just that with our handcrafted blends.
If you scored 15 or more:
Congratulations! You may be among the few whose lifestyle lends itself to breathing healthy, terpene-rich air daily. You are a nature lover and an outdoors enthusiast. You’ve managed to structure your lifestyle around being outdoors and probably experience a greater sense of peace and calm than your city-dwelling peers. You may even enjoy greater physical health since you get regular exposure to terpenes, which protect against many maladies characteristic of urban life. While you may be breathing adequate levels of terpenes, it never hurts to add more with any MONQ blend.
