1. Shahzaib Khan Shahzaib Khan Islamic Republic of Pakistan says:

    Masks have shown to induce red blood cell production in the body, if worn for a long time, because masks tend to trap exhaled air containing less oxygen and so most of it is inhaled again. This slightly reduced oxygenation of blood stimulates the release of erythropoietin, a hormone that causes rbc production. Increased rbc count is beneficial as it increases overall energy levels and boosts stamina and increases metabolism.
