If you’ve ever been in a sauna, you’ve witnessed first-hand how rejuvenating and refreshing a good sweat can be. Sweating is a way in which our body detoxifies itself and there is no better way to stimulate this process other than in a sauna. Various formal studies have also determined that saunas have majestic health benefits on the human body. Here are a few:
One session in a steaming hot sauna flushes out toxins like lactic acid, uric acid, and sodium from the body.
All the people who are tired of being overweight, but hate exercising can now rejoice. Sauna baths are a weight-loss technique that is effortless and relaxing at the same time. A 20 minute session in a sauna at a temperature of approximately 170 degrees Fahrenheit burns about 500 calories. It’s even better than running on a treadmill for the same amount of time.
Stronger immune system
Sauna sessions help in producing white-blood cells that keep the body safe from infections and ailments. Regular sauna users stay healthy, fit and resist diseases.
Younger looking skin
All the ladies who yearn for a younger skin and spend thousands of rupees on cosmetic products can now breathe a sigh of relief. The sauna is an effective and inexpensive way of maintaining younger skin as it improves blood flow to the skin, which removes the dead cells and aids the growth of new skin.
A study conducted in New Zealand determined that having regular sauna baths improve the endurance of athletes by increasing the plasma and red cell volume in the blood stream. The increased blood volume is the reason behind significantly enhanced performance of athletes.
