If you have been thinking about getting a sauna for your home, read this article to understand the potential benefits you and your family could reap from regular sauna use.
Most people do not have the time to exercise or have the chance to sweat on a regular basis. A Sauna can heat your body to a higher temperature. This leads to dilation of blood vessels which cause an increase of blood flow to the skin. The sweat glands become activated and start producing sweat to cool down the body. The deep sweat helps reduce lead levels, copper, zinc, nickel, mercury and toxins from the body.
Help Lose Weight and Burn Fat
Saunas heat up the body very quickly which causes an increase in heart rate. The heart rate increase mimics the same increase as you get during aerobic exercise. At a certain heart rate level, the body starts to burn fat and therefore loses weight. A scientific calibration suggests that spending 20 minutes in a sauna can burn up to 500 calories.
Fast Workout Recovery
Almost every major gym in the United States have saunas. The reason for this is that using a sauna can actually increase the blood flow to the tired and strained muscles. This will help speed up the recovery of those freshly worked muscles.
Improve the Cardiovascular Health
Medical research has shown that the heart rate can increase from 60-70 bpm to 110-120 bpm in the sauna. By having a sauna at your home, you can work your heart out like this regularly. This regular usage will help improve your heart muscle’s endurance. Scientific research has shown that using a sauna on a regular basis a few times a week can reduce the chances of cardiac death and disease.
Enhance Body Immune System
When the body temperature increases, the body gets tricked into thinking that it has a fever. As a result, the body starts to generate more white blood cells so it can fight against bacteria or viruses. This will keep your body in its top fighting condition against whatever bugs are going around.
Improve Skin Health
Spending time in the sauna helps purge the bacteria on the skin, relax your facial muscles, improve skin elasticity and get rid of dead cells. The result? Soft, moist and younger looking skin.
