So, you’ve finally found the motivation and time to make the breakthrough in your lifestyle, and put every health and well-being advice into practice; kudos to you! It feels great to be able to listen to what your body needs, and provide it, seeing the remarkable results by feeling rejuvenated, and energised. Sadly, what you may not be aware of is, despite the implementation of a wholesome diet, exercise, enough sleep, and detoxification, there’s still a way for toxins to enter your body, and it’s through your clothing.
Sure, those synthetic (e.g. lycra, acrylic, polyester, nylon) workout clothes with toxic dyes may be friendly to your budget, but not exactly to your health. What you should do instead is opt for organic options. When it comes to organic, people have started realising the reasons behind the hype with everything that has to do with bamboo. Ditching the synthetic alternative, and buying bamboo workout clothes, you’d do your health a favour for a number of reasons.
First of all, bamboo is resilient, and even much more organic than organic cotton as it doesn’t go through chemical processes; it’s strong and doesn’t require any chemical fertilisers or pesticides to be grown. At the same time, it’s also very soft, luxurious, and pleasant to the touch – yes, even more than cotton! Most of all, it’s a fabric that’s hypoallergenic, as it’s eco-friendly, doesn’t irritate the skin and that’s what makes bamboo workout clothes suitable for everyone, even people with sensitive skin.
Another reason it doesn’t make way for conditions of growth of allergens is because it’s a fabric that has optimal moisture wicking properties, as well as better moisture absorption which means it provides more breathability and thermoregulation, so it’s the perfect clothing choice no matter the season – you’d be cool in summer and warm in winter. Let’s not forget it’s also UV protective; you needn’t have to worry about those harmful sunrays reaching your skin.
As soon as you start reaping the benefits of this incredible fabric, you’d want to get more of it in your day to day life, and great news is there are many products nowadays that are bamboo-based. From all the bits and pieces of clothing, to bedding for your bedroom, to ensure your quality sleep, bathrobes, towels, and even kitchen utensils, dishes, and flooring; there are plenty of ways you can introduce more of bamboo in your home. Once you go bamboo, you wouldn’t want to go back!
