IMPROVING CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH

 

The reduction in stress levels when using a sauna may be linked to a lower risk of cardiovascular events. One study, conducted in Finland, followed 2,315 men ages 42 to 60 over the course of 20 years. Findings suggested that people who use a sauna may have a lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease.

 

Of the participants in the study, a total of 878 died from cardiovascular disease, coronary artery disease, or sudden cardiac death. Participants were categorized by how often they used a sauna, including once a week, two to three times a week, and four to seven times a week. After adjusting for cardiovascular risk factors, increased sauna use was linked with a reduced risk of fatal cardiovascular-related diseases.

RELAX AND KEEP HEALTHY BODY

 

Regardless of the heat and the humidity level, the effects of sauna on the body are similar. When people sit in the sauna, their heart rate increases and blood vessels widen. This increases circulation is in a similar way to low to moderate exercise depending on the duration of sauna use.

 

Heart rate may increase to 100-150 beats a minute while using a sauna. This may bring some health benefits. A dry sauna dries the skin during use. Some people with psoriasis may find that their symptoms reduce while using a sauna, but those with atopic dermatitis may find that it worsens.

 
Moreover, the sauna has two benefits. One is reducing stress levels. As the heat in a sauna improves circulation, it may also promote relaxation. This can improve feelings of well-being. The other is easing the pain. Increased circulation may help reduce muscle soreness, improve joint movement, and ease arthritis pain.

SAUNAS FLUSH TOXINS

 

Many - if not most - of us do not actively sweat on a daily basis. Deep sweating, however, has multiple proven health benefits. Benefits derived from a deep sweat can be achieved via regular sauna bathing. Due to the heat of a sauna, the core body temperature begins to rise. The blood vessels then dilate and cause increased blood flow. As heat from the blood begins to move toward the skin's surface, the body’s nervous system then sends signals to the millions of sweat glands that cover the human body. As the sweat glands become stimulated, they produce sweat composed of 99% water to cool the body.

 
However, deep sweating in a sauna can help reduce levels of lead, copper, zinc, nickel, mercury, and chemical - which are all toxins commonly absorbed just from interacting with our daily environments. There is no shortage of books from Doctors and practitioners, who describe the benefits of detoxifying our bodies regularly. As many doctors agree, the reason for the popularity of saunas is that it is one of the best ways to detoxify our bodies.

SAUNAS CAN INDUCE A DEEPER SLEEP

 

Deep sleep is very important for health in model life. Many people may have sleep problem under great pressure for work or family. Research has shown that the sauna can bring a deeper and more relaxed sleep. Due to the release of endorphins, body temperatures become elevated in the late evening and fall at bedtime. This slow and relaxing decline in endorphins is key in facilitating sleep. Numerous sauna bathers worldwide recall the deep sleep experiences that they feel after bathing the calming heat of a sauna.

SAUNAS BURN CALORIES

 

Outlandish claims are often made by some sauna sellers (primarily those who sell infrared saunas) to promote saunas as an end-all weight loss tool. While some individuals may experience high amounts of calorie burn at first - particularly those individuals in poor shape - over the long term, the sauna is simply treated as one of many tools in our arsenal when it comes to burning additional calories. The sweating process itself requires a notable amount of energy. That energy is derived from the conversion of fat and carbohydrates in a bodily process that burns up calories. 


A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams and consume nearly 300 calories in a single session of a sauna. The body consumes calories due to the acceleration of heart activity (the cardiovascular section). As heart activity increases and demands more oxygen, the body begins to convert more calories into usable energy.
