Where’s the best place to walk for bone-building exercise? The beach!

Why? Not only do you get the benefit of the sun and the salty air, but you also reap the benefit of all those negative ions.

Negative ions are most plentiful in air that’s near crashing water, such as waterfalls and ocean waves. Compare: An indoor room of a house might have 100 negative ions per cubic centimeter of air, while an ocean breeze can carry 100,000 negative ions per cc! That makes a big difference to your blood cells, which need those negative ions to keep their negative charge, so that they don’t “stick” to one another. Healthy, free-moving blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients more efficiently throughout the body, making it easier to build bone density.

So, take a walk on the beach, feel the sand beneath your feet, and relish the fact that you are nourishing your body and building bone density simply by breathing in the ocean air!
