Respirar en el mar te cuida

Breathing in the sea takes care of you

Breathing the sea breeze continuously benefits people with lung ailments, asthma and allergies.Naturally, its composition, so rich in iodine and sea salts, are components with anti-inflammatory and decongestant properties for the nasal passages, bronchi and lungs.

The sea air is hardly polluted and is full of ozone and nutrients.

We could say that it is a natural bactericide that sends ozone (microparticles loaded with trace elements, iodine and sea salts ) to the atmosphere constantly. One more luxury from Mother Nature and what we breathe immediately when we are near the sea.


The ions are the particles (they can be positive or negative), which we find in the air. Did you know that negatively charged ions are the most beneficial for our body?

Precisely, they are those generated in nature in water currents such as rivers, seas or waterfalls. (Unlike positively charged ions that we find in our homes, buildings, in all closed environments full of energy that comes from electrical appliances, technology, etc.)

The air in areas near the sea and in the oceans is loaded with negative ions , which is why it is so advisable to spend as much time as possible near the coast to enjoy a healthy life.
