3 Health Benefits of Lounging in an Infrared Sauna

If you don’t have an infrared sauna at home yet, then now’s the perfect time to get one for everyone in your family to enjoy. Aside from how relaxing it is to spend a few minutes sweating inside a sauna, it actually provides more health benefits that you can imagine. Here are some examples:

Weight Loss
The heat generated by an infrared sauna will cause your core temperature to increase, which can also lead to an increased heart rate — the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising. When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories, resulting in weight loss. An article, titled Effect of Sweating, in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that a 30-minute infrared sauna session could burn roughly 600 calories. Source: MindBodyGreen

Relieves Oxidative Stress
Oxidative stress is the relative inability of our bodies to detoxify at a rate that is consistent with their exposure to toxins. When we are under oxidative stress, disease conditions like autoimmune disorders, cancer, and metabolic disease are much more likely to occur. Oxidative stress also contributes to the general process of aging. Wrinkles, gray hair, and slowed metabolism are all signs of oxidative stress. Several studies show that infrared sauna can slow the impact of oxidative stress on our bodies. Source: Fix

Improves Heart Function
A review by the Department of Family Practice at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver found evidence supporting the use of infrared sauna treatments for normalizing blood pressure and cholesterol levels, treating congestive heart failure, and helping with chronic pain. That means an infrared sauna is a good way to help prevent high blood pressure and improve heart health.

Another study published in the Journal of The Japanese Circulation Society backs up that research, as the study found that infrared sauna treatment can help patients who have heart arrhythmias and suffer from chronic heart failure. Repeated treatments with a 60 degrees Celsius sauna improved functioning of the heart and lowered incidence of ventricular arrhythmias. Source: DrAxe
