4 Health Benefits of Swimming in a Saltwater Pool

Did you know that swimming is one of the best full body exercises you can get? It’s true! Swimming is a great form of cardio that improves heart health, burns calories, and increases flexibility, all while going easy on your joints.

When you swim in saltwater, not only are you getting in some killer cardio, you’re also reaping the health benefits that salt offers for your body. Adding a saltwater pool to your property allows you to experience these perks even when you can’t make it to the beach!

1) Hydrate your skin

The magnesium found in saltwater moisturizes your skin and improves its appearance by rejuvenating, exfoliating, and detoxifying. These hydrating effects also help reduce inflammation, relieving any pesky redness or toughness!

2) Boost your immune system

The antimicrobial properties of salt force bacteria out of your cells through osmosis, helping to fight infection and stimulate a healthy immune system. When your skin absorbs the salt in saltwater, your body is better able to rid itself of toxins that cause illness and disease.

3) Increase blood circulation

Saltwater helps restore vital minerals to your body that you may be deficient in due to diet, stress, or even your environment. These minerals improve blood flow, which increases oxygen levels in the body. Better circulation and more oxygen promote cell growth and healthy organ function!

4) Calm your nervous system

Another reason we love that magnesium in saltwater is because it depresses the nervous system, resulting in a calming effect on your body and mind! Reducing nervous system irritability helps to relieve pain, relax your muscles, lower stress levels, and induce better sleep.
