Why Run Barefoot?

Running barefoot may improve balance and proprioception. Going barefoot activates the smaller muscle in the feet, ankles, legs, and hips that are responsible for better balance and coordination. Running barefoot helps one improve balance, but it also helps them stay "grounded" and connected with your environment.

A recent article from "The Sacred Science" highlights even more benefits from being barefoot. It turns out that the sensation we feel when our feet make contact with moist sand is more than just a feeling. Remarkable health benefits include:

  • reducing inflammation,
  • boosting antioxidants in our body,
  • improving sleep,
  • and, promoting healthy blood flow.

The primordial practice of walking barefoot is only just beginning to be studied by modern science. One of the most groundbreaking findings is the powerful heart health effect of direct skin contact with the earth.

study published by the Journal of Alternative And Complimentary Medicine from 2013 states that walking barefoot “reduces blood viscosity, which is a major factor in cardiovascular disease”.
