Swimming is for everyone regardless of their age, fitness levels and ability. Swimming is a great way to keep in shape and you do not need to be a professional athlete to participate.
Whether you want to increase your overall fitness or want to loose weight, swimming is the perfect activity for you. Like any fitness activity, swimming requires endurance, so here’s our top 3 vitamins to help you ‘just keep swimming…’
Swimming provides a whole-body workout so it is important to keep your energy levels high. Swimming allows you to engage your stomach, arm and leg muscles all at the same time. Studies have shown that those with a Vitamin B can suffer from tiredness and muscle cramps. Adding our Vitamin B Complex into your routine, provides an optimal blend of B Vitamins in one convenient tablet. Vitamin B also contributes to a normal metabolism of energy, cognitive function, immune support and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue; essential for those tricky last lengths.
In most swimming pools chlorine is used to sanitise and reduce levels of bacteria; however this can have a negative side effect for swimmers. We’ve had the unfortunate experience of red eyes, dry skin and hair and even wrinkles. Vitamin C helps to neutralise chlorine and reduce the damage caused by chlorine exposure. Vitamin C is a naturally occurring antioxidant that has many important functions within the body. A healthy dose of Vitamin C can contribute to the normal function of the immune system, as well as supporting the health of skin, dental hygiene, bones and joints through the normal formation of collagen. Additionally, Vitamin C aids your metabolism, reducing the tiredness and fatigue caused from training in the pool.
Swimming is an excellent way to burn calories and allows you to increase your heart rate without putting unnecessary stress on the body. As you swim, your body uses energy found within the body’s fat stores, which over a period of time will result in weight loss. White Kidney Bean is a natural supplement that helps your body to break down carbohydrates and convert them into energy rather than being absorbed into the intestine. On it’s own White Kidney Bean cannot result in weight loss but combined with regular exercise such as swimming and a balanced diet, it can aid the function of a natural metabolism.
