We hear the phrase ‘health benefits’ thrown around, so what does that really mean in the case of owning a magnesium swimming pool. There actually are some awesome benefits to owning a swimming pool. Swimming is such a big part of Australian life. We have a climate that facilitates swimming for a large part of the year.  In addition to being the funnest pass time in Australia, here are all the health benefits of a swimming pool that you are going to want to jump on board with for 2020.

10 Reasons to choose A Magnesium Pool

The Physical Benefits of A MAGnesium Pool

  1. Lowers Blood Pressure
    The transdermal absorption (through the skin) of the minerals as you swim can lower blood pressure.
  2. Repairs nerve and muscle function
    Spending time in a mineral-dense pool has shown that it strengthens bone density (by aiding in better absorption of calcium to the body), boost immunity and regulate sugar levels. In many instances, these ailments are related to lifestyle choices that are degenerative to the body’s function; including the healing power of mineral pools into your health treatment can greatly improve its efficacy and offer a faster route back to good health.
  3. Increases skin elasticity and hair health
    Good health doesn’t just show up on the inside… Swimming in mineral pools has been associated with improved aesthetics, allowing the skin to press pause on premature ageing. Minerals improve the skin’s elasticity and gives moisture back into skin. this is the opposite of what chlorine-heavy pools do to our skin. Mineral pools leave our skin feeling soft and silky, while also slowing down the advent of wrinkles. Magnesium is also responsible for improving the strength of our hair follicles, stopping hair loss and breakage while also improving its natural sheen.
  4. Soothes skin conditions

    Mineral pools can also assist in the healing of skin conditions such as rosacea, acne, eczema and psoriasis. There are even anecdotal reports that swimming in a mineral pool can solely cure mild to moderate instances of these conditions, without the aid of medications or topical steroids. Minerals are reparative, as opposed to degenerative and drying. The silky feeling you have when you get out of a mineral pool is not just a layer on top of the skin that goes away, it penetrates and repairs your skin as you swim, and continues when you’re out of the pool.

    In addition to these reasons just owning a pool has the added benefits of:

  5. All Over Workout
    Almost all your muscles are used when you are swimming which means it provides an all over body workout, tones your muscles and builds strength.
  6. Better than other forms of exercise
    Exercising in water makes your body work harder therefore half an hour in a pool is worth 45 minutes of the same exercise on land. It’s also an effective way to burn calories. A gentle swim can burn over 200 calories in 30 minutes which is double that of walking.
  7. Lowers the risk of diseases
    Swimming just half an hour a week can help prevent heart disease, strokes and type 2 diabetes.
  8. Supports the body
    Water supports up to 90% of your body’s weight. So if you sprained an ankle or have a long term injury or illness, swimming is a brilliant way to stay active.
  9. Increases your energy
    Just 30 minutes of swimming three times a week can boost your energy levels through an increased metabolic rate.
  10. Sweat Free Exercise
     As a swimmer, you’ll never feel sweaty, so if sweat puts you off exercise then this is the one for you.


Mental Health Benefits of a Magnesium Pool

Not only does swimming provide a fantastic form of exercise, it’s also great for the mind. We often associate water with relaxation, and so it makes sense that being immersed in water will bring peace and alleviate stress. Very welcome benefits in our fast pace society.

  1. Improves energy levels and helps with sleep
    Taking a dip in a mineral pool when you’re lethargic can immediately increase your energy levels as it aids in the circulation of blood to your heart, muscles and brain. It’s healthier and more effective for boosting energy than downing several cups of coffee, and won’t interrupt your sleep patterns. Minerals work to keep you at a healthy level of energy; if you’re low it will bring you up to that level, if you are elevated, it will settle you down to that level. This ensures you have enough energy to get you through your day, and enough relaxation to help zone you out to achieve adequate sleep.
  2. Being active has a positive impact on mental health including: improving mood, increasing self-esteem, lowers the risk of depression, slows dementia and cognitive decline, improves sleep and reduces stress.
  3. Swimming has significantly reduced the symptoms of anxiety or depression for 1.4 million adults in Britain. Almost half a million British adults with mental health problems have stated that the number of visits to a medical professional regarding their mental health has reduced as a result of swimming.

Here are our top tips for getting started.

  • Start off small and build up your swimming levels gradually at a pace that works for you. Small amounts of swimming give a natural energy boost.
  • Ask a friend to help you get started. Having a friend join you can be the just the right motivation you need to get started.

Owning your own pool will give you more opportunity and incentive to take advantage of these mental and physical benefits.
