Why is the beach so good? Here are some of the health benefits of the sea for children:
It is proven that the sun is good for the bones and the skin, in fact its exposure helps to fix the calcium and counteracts rickets.
The sun stimulates the production of vitamin D (sun vitamin) which is essential for proper bone development (especially in children) and is very important for preventing some very serious diseases. This vitamin is so fundamental that, to stock it, it is given as drops for the first year of life. The benefits of the sun do not stop here, because they also extend to the skin, helping a lot in case of atopic dermatitis (which affect children) and eczema as long as it is adequately protected with the appropriate sunscreens. Obviously it is always important not to expose children to the sun during the central hours of the day. Keep in mind there are many ways to get the most out of your beach vacation.
The second natural element that is found in places of the sea is definitely salt water, which is a real cure for psoriasis and eczema. Children suffering from these inflammatory forms of the skin, find benefits thanks to salt water, which also contains very important mineral salts such as sodium chloride (salt), magnesium and iodine salts.
Sun, water and finally air. The sea air is good for everyone, but it is even better for children because it is rich in iodine, magnesium, potassium and other precious minerals. Breathing it is equivalent to making a natural aerosol, which purifies the respiratory tract of newborns, acting in advance against the typical winter maladies. The air of the sea also stimulates the immune system, which will better address the aggression of bacteria. In addition, the greater heaviness of the sea air promotes breathing, ensuring better oxygenation of the blood.
