The Top 3 Health Benefits of Living Along The Beaches of 30A
It has been an age-old wisdom that living along the coastline provides people many health benefits. According to a study by Aaron Hipp, Ph.D, who is an environmental health expert, “natural environments like beaches and waterfront parks offer more restorative benefits to people than gyms, entertainment venues and the built urban environment”. Living near the beach along 30A is not only fun and exciting; it is also good for your health. And here’s why:
1. Vitamin D, endorphins and better auto-immune system. Our bodies make a vital tool called Vitamin D when we are exposed to the sun. This helps with absorbing calcium and strengthening bones. There have also been studies that show that the sun also helps increase our body’s endorphins and improve our defenses against autoimmune diseases.
2. Absorb vital minerals, detoxify and improve the muscles in your feet. Sand and seawater are great sources of magnesium, potassium and iodine which can help fight infection, offer therapeutic aids, and help the body detoxify and heal. Among the many benefits of having adequate magnesium in our body are strong bones and teeth, a healthy nervous and cardiovascular system, and balanced hormones. Aside from providing healthy minerals, detoxifying and pulling impurities from our body, the salt water also inhibits growth of bacteria and skin infections. Walking barefoot on the sugar-white sands of the beaches along 30A also stimulates the nerve endings of your feet while strengthening the muscles.
3. Swim for your well-being. Swimming has been hugely linked to decreased stress and increased sense of well-being. Aside from providing excellent physical exercise which gets most of our major muscle groups at work, it also helps lessen anxiety and depression. Studies also show that there are signs of improvements on conditions such as psoriasis, arthritis, and depression after a nice long swim. Swimming in the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico along 30A helps you stay fit and healthy.
Exposure to the sun, sand and surf truly has many positive effects on your health and well-being, and this is one of the reasons why the 30A luxury homes along the Emerald Coast are desired by many. Not only will you get to enjoy the distinctive 30A lifestyle, but you also get to take advantage of the part of the beach life that’s beneficial to your health.
