Swimming has been proven to enhance your cardiovascular performance, cholesterol level, memory, as well as your blood pressure and chemistry. After swimming, your body learns to draw in more oxygen and remove carbon dioxide. Swimming helps to control your stress levels, increase your flexibility, and utilize a greater number of muscles than other forms of exercise such as jogging or biking. Immersed in water your body also takes in less sensory information, helping bring on feelings of calm – making swimming a genuine fountain of youth.
