If you are planning a trip by the ocean this summer you are probably really looking forward to some rejuvenating beach days. Sea water is not only an enjoyable way to pass your summer vacation, but it is also incredibly good for you.
Historically, doctors would recommend that people who were ill spend some time by the ocean because of all the great benefits that come from not only swimming in the water, but also from the air.
Soaking up some vitamin D, enjoying the warmth of the sand between your toes, and getting a great tan are basics of a salt water vacation. If you are lucky enough to head to the beach, here are the perks:
You will find that your skin is glowing from exfoliation that happens while swimming in the ocean. For some extra smooth skin, rub some sand all over your body and go for a dip.
Seawater contains amazing minerals and vitamins, amino acids and living microorganisms that have antibacterial properties to help promote a stronger immune system. These are absorbed through the water while swimming, and inhaled through the mist in the air.
Improve circulation by swimming in salt water. Seawater therapy is commonly used for blood circulation by restoring essential minerals; an issue that arises due to a poor diet, poisons in the environment, and stress.
Seawater is rich in magnesium which is essential for common ailments like poor sleep, anxiety, asthma, bronchitis, and various inflammatory diseases. A good dose of ocean life will leave you feeling better, overall.
