Though the health benefits of swimming have been widely documented, its usefulness in staving off the effects of aging may be more dramatic than previously thought. According to a study done by a research team at Indiana University, regular and moderately intensive swimming can substantially delay the decline of such age markers as blood pressure, muscle mass, blood chemistry and pulmonary function. With access to an indoor pool, boomers and seniors can take advantage of the many health benefits of swimming year-round.

According to a study done by a research team at Indiana University, regular and moderately intensive swimming can substantially delay the decline of such age markers as blood pressure, muscle mass, blood chemistry and pulmonary function. Tests performed on U.S. Masters swimmers found that regular, moderately intense swimming postponed the aging process, not only for years but for decades.

C. J. Buck, M.I.A., CEO of Xenna Corporation, (http://www.xenna.com) which distributes foot care products, says, "With access to an indoor pool, boomers and seniors can take advantage of the many health benefits of swimming year-round."

Anti-aging benefits of swimming include:

· Improved cardiovascular conditioning

· Increased muscle strength and endurance

· Improved posture and joint flexibility

In addition to being healthier, swimming helps improve physical appearance by toning muscles and helping to control weight and appetite. A number of studies have found that even in middle-aged or elderly individuals, body image is an important factor affecting self-esteem, especially in women. Paradoxically, it’s a concern about appearance that often keeps people from taking advantage of the benefits of swimming.

C. J. Buck, M.I.A., CEO of Xenna Corporation, (http://www.xenna.com) says, “Some individuals avoid any situation, such as public pools, that require them to expose an overweight body, thighs dimpled with cellulite, or unattractive feet. Many people need to realize that, regardless of what shape they’re in, they really can dramatically improve both their health and their appearance by making a commitment to eating healthy, getting regular exercise, and attending to proper foot care.”

While not a weight-loss expert, Buck is an expert on foot care. Xenna distributes natural foot care products that address the problems of yellow, discolored toenails and dry, cracked heels – problems which are common among middle-aged and elderly individuals.

Buck says, “Many individuals are embarrassed by the way their feet and toenails appear, causing them to avoid any activity that exposes their bare feet, including swimming, water aerobics or even wearing sandals or flip-flops."

Xenna distributes diabetic-friendly NonyX® Nail Gel and CalleX® Ointment, which were developed and patented using formulations that focus on the exfoliation of keratin – the protein contained in dry skin, callus and nails. The result is innovative, natural foot care products that make embarrassing feet and nails attractive again.”

NonyX® Nail Gel is a diabetic-friendly, natural ethanoic nail gel that breaks down and removes keratin debris - the discolored, yellow or thick granular buildup under nails which is the actual source of nail discoloration. After using NonyX Gel for 3 or 4 weeks, keratin debris is soft enough so that it can begin to be scraped out from under the nail. Overall nail appearance improves over time as keratin debris exfoliates with continued use of this money-back guaranteed gel.

Former All-American swimmer Dr. William Holmes used to be self-conscious about his feet and even stopped swimming at public pools until he used NonyX Nail Gel. Dr. Holmes says, "NonyX Gel is the only product that I tried in twenty years that made an improvement in the appearance of my toenails."

Xenna’s CalleX® Ointment, also diabetic-friendly, smoothes and moisturizes dry, cracked heels. Its natural enzymes selectively exfoliate dry, cracked, thickened and scaly skin while its petrolatum base retains natural skin moisture. Peppermint-scented CalleX is also free of potentially irritating acids, mineral oil, colorants, parabens and lanolin and is also money-back guaranteed.

NonyX Nail Gel can be purchased in the footcare section of Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS, Wal-Mart, Longs, Eckerd Pharmacy, Brooks Pharmacy, Duane Reade, HEB grocery stores and most Medicine Shoppes. Online, it is also available at http://www.drugstore.com and http://www.xenna.com.

CalleX Ointment is sold in the footcare section of Walgreens, Longs and many Medicine Shoppe pharmacies, and online at http://www.drugstore.com and http://www.xenna.com.
