Here are three really good reasons why you should not miss the beach this summer. Sand, water and sun – the three main components of the beach are magnificent way to preserve your health all year long.
Healing sea water
Sea water is not only extremely pleasant for your vacation but it has a lot of health benefits – a lot of minerals which releases toxins of your body. One of the most useful mineral is iodine. Its main function is to help thyroid gland work properly which makes you less prone to infections. Another mineral in sea water is magnesium which calms down nervous system.
Another benefit of sea water is swimming. Swimming is one of the most useful sports which train all muscle groups, helps when fighting with arthritis, depression and psoriasis. Your skin will also be grateful because minerals in sea water are extremely beneficial to its elasticity and circulation of the blood.

Warm sand for your health
Sand also has healing power as it stimulates over 200 000 nerve endings which we have on our feet. As we walk through the beach we exfoliate dead skin from our heels and makes then soft. We also strengthen muscles of our feet as we walk on the sand. Not less important the direct contact with Mother Earth as we walk through the beach as we activate our immune system.
Say “Hello” to lovely sun
Smile to the sun – it is really good friend to your health. Nowadays the question whether sun is good or bad for us is not so clear but as with most of the things in small quantities it is good for you.
Negatives of the sun are hiding in the dangerous radiation which it emits and strong UV rays which can cause different skin problems. On the other side it is good to “take” some sun as it is best natural source of vitamin D or “sun vitamin” as it is known. Of course there are a lot of supplements with vitamin D but is staying the best one because it is natural.
