Have you ever been in a bad mood, headed out for a dip in the ocean and emerged feeling revived and calm? There’s a reason for that! Seawater contains the same 84 vital elements also found in the human body such as vitamins, mineral salts, trace elements and amino acids. When we swim in the ocean our bodies are able to assimilate these vital elements that promote healing. Here at Expert Active, we get to see first hand how the ocean benefits and brings joy to our guests as we we take them out surfing, kayaking, and paddle boarding. Here are five reason why taking a dip in the salty ocean is a great idea:
1.Sea water is a tremendous curing, clearing and cleansing agent. The ocean is both a natural exfoliator and moisturizer leaving your skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Salt water also serves to heal cuts and sores and it is a good remedy for acne. When you you swim in the ocean, your pores open up and and all those healthy minerals and amino acids help draw out impurities. Your largest organ will thank you for splashing around in the sea water!
2. Sea water can help improve your immune system. There are vital elements, vitamins, mineral salts and amino acids in seawater that produce antibiotic and antibacterial effects to help promote a healthy immune system. Swimming in sea water opens pores to allow the absorption of sea minerals and the expulsion of disease-causing toxins. Even just inhaling sea mist filled with negatively charged ions or molecules that attach to your lungs also boosts your immune system!
3. Sea water improves your circulatory system. Your circulatory system is made up of the heart, capillaries, arteries and veins and it carries oxygen rich blood from your heart to your body and then returns blood to your heart again. Swimming in the ocean can help to fascinate the circulation of blood in your body. Every day stress, poor diet and environmental toxins takes a toll on the circulatory system and seawater can improve this by restoring essential minerals.
4. Sneeze into the ocean. Inhaling sodium chloride, or salt from sea water, helps loosen mucus and has the ability to relieve cold and flu symptoms.
5. The ocean provides a natural boost to the brain. Magnesium, lithium and bromine contained in seawater are incredible calming elements and have the power to stabilize and maintain proper serotonin, melatonin, and tryptamine levels in the brain.
With all these benefits it’s no wonder our guests leave the ocean feeling amazing. Come join us in one of our many ocean adventures!
