Infrared Sauna – Burn calories and detox through sweating (7 times more than a traditional sauna) We have all heard and seen the countless ads for diet pills that claim to burn calories without any need for exercising. It turns out that there is a scientifically proven method that can achieve such magic. That method is the infrared sauna! The proven, and healthy solution to losing some of those extra pounds. Increased Metabolism Far-infrared energy deeply penetrates the skin and warms the muscles and joints. The radiation penetrates deep into the body and gets our hearts to beat faster which in turn burns calories thus raising the metabolism. Calories Burned If a 150-lb person usually burns around 300 calories jogging or swimming for 30 minutes, the infrared sauna promises to help get rid of 400-600 calories in one 30 minute session.
Infrared Sauna - Promotes Relaxation, Lowers Blood Pressure In Finland, saunas are regarded as places for mental relaxation and physical rejuvenation. Today, this unique Finnish culture has been exported far and wide leading to a rising trend in sauna usage. It is no surprise that modern day infrared saunas are highly regarded for their ability to burn calories, detoxify skin and clear the mind. While people who visit saunas regularly claim to experience post-sauna bliss, there are surprisingly very few studies that empirically validate such claims, until now. This year, we are finally beginning to understand how sitting, and perhaps copiously sweating, in the sauna, benefits the body physiologically. The key, it turns out, is our body’s circulatory system.
