Salt Therapy and Sports Performance

Oxygenate your muscles efficiently and you can make your body work harder, for longer.Athletes, particularly in endurance sports (ironmen/women, triathletes, marathon runners, cyclists etc), know good lung health is crucial to optimising performance.

Inefficient oxygen exchange can mean:

  • Impaired endurance and stamina.
  • Fatigue due to excessive anaerobic muscle use and over production of lactic acid.
  • Elevated heart rate.
  • Longer recovery time.
  • Muscle cramps.

Elite level athletes invest a lot of time in improving lung capacity, and sometimes to little avail. Only recently hassports science recognized the value of halotherapyin improving lung function, supportingoptimal performance outcomes, and general wellbeing in endurance athletes.

While salt rooms are often the go-to recommendation, the Salin Plus Salt Therapy device is the ideal product for athletes because they canenjoy the sametherapeutic benefits, but from the comfort of home and while they sleep!

Incorporating Salin Plus Salt Therapy into the wellbeing-mix can be beneficial by:

  • Clearing mucus from the airways.
  • Restoring the lung’smucus clearance mechanism.
  • Providing anti-inflammatory effects on the whole respiratory system.
  • Providing anti-bacterial effects on the whole respiratory system: meaning less reliance on pharmaceutical drugs to treat conditions.
  • Reducing the incidence of exercise induced asthma and therefore, dependence on inhalers.
  • Reducing the incidence of respiratory infection.
  • Cleansing the air of allergens and pollutants that can trigger adverse respiratory responses.
  • Supporting optimal immune response to airborne triggers: severity of reaction to triggers decreases over time.

This leads on to the next point: anunwanted side effect ofintense training is a suppressed immune system.

It is not uncommon for elite athletes who have trained for weeks, months and years to be struck down by a cold or stomach flu just before race/game day. Unfortunately, being in peak performance condition can sometimes also mean the height of physical vulnerability.

Salt therapy is a safe and effective way to support optimal immune function; reduce sensitivity to common allergy triggers (seasonal allergies, asthma etc), while also improving immune response to common respiratory illnesses - meaning if you do happen to get sick, you recover quicker.

Salin Plus is the only salt therapy device on the market with an award winning, G4 pre-filter capable of cleansing the air of 98% of microparticles,includingairborne bacteria!

The device is also lightweight enough to take on the road: great for foreign environments with high pollution and different allergens.

Salin Plus has also recently launched an all new Salt Pipe: portable halotherapy technology, perfect for travel when air quality is poor and can trigger respiratory discomfort.

Salin Plus is a natural, 100% drug-free way to breathe better, sleep better and perform better!

It really is that simple.
