​Homeopathic Allergy Relief and Bike Riding

Posted on

Riding a bike is a heck of a lot of fun. For many people, bike riding is a passion, it’s something they do as often as possible. However, if you suffer from severe allergies, you might be stuck having to spend your afternoon pedaling a stationary bike in your basement.

That’s no fun, especially when the weather is so nice.

Taking up cycling can be one of the better decisions you have made in your life. At least a better decision than choosing to spend $75 on sushi from a convenience store. You will never make that mistake again.

You are also making a big mistake if you aren’t taking anything for your allergy symptoms. Homeopathic allergy relief from Allergena will have you back outside and enjoying bike riding once again.

If that doesn’t prompt you to place an order, here are the benefits of biking that you are missing out on because of your allergies.

Make Friends

Bike riding is a social sport, if that is what you choose. Grassroots bike riding revolves around a club culture. That is, bike riders often ride in groups with friends or family. This means that you have somebody to talk to on your extended bike rides.

You will notice that joggers and runners are often by themselves, because that is more of a solo sport. People at the gym are the same way, they pop their earbuds in and shut themselves out from others in order to better concentrate on their lunges and squats.

If you wanted to be left alone, you could always ride that stationary bike you have in your basement.

Low Impact

There are people who will argue that lifting weights and running offer the same exercise benefits as bike riding, and they would be correct. We aren’t going to argue that point as any type of exercise is healthy and good for you.

However, bike riding is a form of low impact exercise and your body will thank you for it. There was a study conducted on runners and bike riders. The study found that runners suffered nearly 150 percent more muscle damage than bike riders. The same study also found that runners suffered 250 percent more inflammation than bike riders.

So yeah, if you enjoy having to ice your body down after each run, then running is for you.

Build Muscle

The resistance element of biking means that in addition to burning fast while bike riding, you are also building muscle. So if you want ripped glutes, hammies and quads, take your allergy supplement and go bike riding.

Now, riding a bike isn’t going to give you quads like a track sprinter, but you will have a nicely toned derriere.

Heart Healthy

Riding a bike is great for your heart. Studies show that people who are active on a daily basis are 30 percent less likely to develop high blood pressure. There have been studies that show bike riding can lower your blood pressure just as much as prescription drugs.

Self-Esteem

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that exercise in general and bike riding more specifically will help improve your self-esteem. So next time you are out and about on a bike ride, whip out your smartphone and take a selfie with a big smile on your face. Post that picture and feel good because you look great!

Longer Life

If you are a bike rider, not only will you age well, you will also live a longer life. That’s right, bike riders live longer.

On average, a bike rider can expect to live to the age of 81. The general population can expect to live to the age of 74. No kidding.

Sexy Vibes

As it turns out, you aren't the only one who thinks spandex-clad men and women on bikes are hot. Studies have shown that cyclists are perceived as cool, intelligent and more attractive than other people.

Reduced Stress

Exercise, in general, reduces stress, there are plenty of studies that back this up. But what you might not know is that bike riding is one of the top stress-busting activities you can do. Bike riders enjoy over 20 percent fewer poor mental health days than people who aren’t bike riders.

So go ahead and place an order with Allergena and get ready for a summer of bike riding.
