Vacation on the sea can bring endless benefits to our health. Suntanning, swimming is what we usually do when we are on vacation, which is good to your mood and boosts your health.
On the other hand, the only thing that sea water does not do is hydrate our body. In fact that is not even a downside compared to the benefits.
Some studies have been comparing sea water as a natural drug and medicine, which indeed stimulates our body and well-being. If you live by the beach or spend a lot of time in coastal areas, you know how receptive we are to sea-sprayed shores.
Now the question pops-up: What is the composition of sea water? On average, sea water has 3.5 percent of salt (sodium chloride). In other words, for one liter of water, you get 35 grams of salts. And then, small parts of magnesium, sulfate and calcium.
Although still not scientifically proven, thalassotherapy uses sea water and sea-based products made from algae, marine salt, mud, seaweed, and ocean water to eliminates skin problems.
But salt water has many other surprising benefits:
1. Cleans Your Skin And Strengthens The Immune System
The mineral salts team up with the sun to regenerate your skin. Of course, ulcers, lupus, acne, and psoriasis are some of the diseases that can be easily cured with sea water.
However, the number of red blood cells increases between five to 20 percent after a swim or bath in the sea. On the other hand the number of white blood cells increases even more. After all sea water is a fantastic medicine for people with a weakened immune system, anemia, and high blood sugar levels.
2. Slows Down The Development Of Rheumatism And Eliminates Anxiety
Exercising in the salt water is considered a great medication for bone and muscle pain, arthritis, circulatory, and post surgical issues.
In fact, the magnesium in the composition of salt water will calm you down. As a matter of fact, people who live a stressful life are advised to go to the beach. That is not only for its relaxing atmosphere but also because of the soothing medicinal properties of sea water.
3. Improves Breathing And Cleans Out The Large Intestine
However, the people who have been suffering from asthma, severe cough, phlegm, should ‘beach’ more often. While breathing the breeze and swim in the sea, the salt water will eliminate toxins and other elements that attack the lungs.
The ingestion of small amounts of ocean water facilitates the cleansing of the colon, detoxifies the body and renews the body’s energies, especially in children.
4. Helps Fight Kidney And Liver Problems, And Prevents Insomnia
Ocean water accelerates the process of cell regeneration, especially those damaged by diseases such as cirrhosis. It also helps eliminate the excess water accumulated in the abdomen that occurs as a consequence of the disease.
Because it helps normalize blood pressure and treats nervousness, a day at the beach will help you sleep better, and will naturally boost your mood.
