Swimming. We all know it’s one of the best ways to keep – and stay – healthy. The water’s buoyancy means comfortable exercise with no undue stress and strain on the joints. But at Affinity Sheep Station Creek, we’re taking the health benefits of swimming up a notch.
We’re doing this with a brand-new, state-of-the-art magnesium pool in the community clubhouse.
Water rich in magnesium is silky and gentle on the skin. It’s like swimming in a health spa! You don’t have to rinse your hair after swimming as the minerals are remarkably good for the hair follicles.
Plus, there’s no eye discomfort and you don’t have to put up with the chemical chlorine smell!
Magnesium: the magic mineral
Magnesium is essential to carry out 300 major cellular processes and enzyme reactions in your body. When you bathe in a magnesium pool the magnesium is absorbed transdermally (through the skin) to boost our bodies and minds:
✔ Magnesium occurs naturally within all of us. It forms 50% of our bone and 50% of our tissues.
✔ It normalizes our nerve and muscle functions, makes our heartbeat rhythmic, strengthens our bones and teeth, promotes a healthy immune system, normalises blood pressure and regulates sugar levels.
✔ It is an anti-inflammatory agent that fights insulin resistance, is a wonderful sleep aid and helps to relieve stress.
✔ Absorbing magnesium water restores your skin’s elasticity and moisture, eradicating dryness and inflammation, helping to eradicate skin disorders such as eczema while treating allergy areas.
✔ It reduces gut disorders that can lead to rosacea under the eyes.
✔ Without magnesium the skin becomes a host to inflammation and free radical damage, causing wrinkles. Swimming in magnesium water is great for wrinkle prevention.
✔ Magnesium reduces E-selection effects, helping to cure skin breakouts.
✔ It helps your body absorb calcium, keeping your bones and teeth stronger.
✔ It offers muscle ache relief. Having a bath in magnesium rich water treats sore muscles, muscle spasm and reduces swelling.
✔ Sport or fitness fan? Having a magnesium bath and using a magnesium oil before activity can reduce the chance of sports-related injuries like muscle tears.
✔ Here’s a genuine personal anecdote: I witnessed a woman in California, who was suffering from a severe headache, spend an hour in a magnesium pool and emerge effectively pain-free.
✔ A dip in a magnesium pool can minimise and even eliminate body odour. If deodorants or scented soaps haven’t worked, try a magnesium bath and experience the miracle!
✔ Hair follicles need magnesium to produce strong strands to help prevent hair loss. It’s an essential element for healthy hair.
✔ Epsom Salt is actually magnesium sulphate. It has been added to baths and spas as a therapeutic practice for centuries.
✔ Magnesium detoxifies and cleanses the skin, relaxing the nervous system.
