Using Sauna For Heart Health
When it comes to saunas and cardiovascular benefits, infrared saunas are a great choice. Studies on sauna bathing for cardiovascular and other health benefits have linked regular sauna bathing with improved cardiovascular function via improved endothelium-dependent dilatation, reduced arterial stiffness, modulation of the autonomic nervous system, beneficial changes in circulating lipid profiles, and lowering of systemic blood pressure..
Infrared sauna sessions create a cardiovascular workout on the body whilst removing heavy metals and toxins. Because infrared light heats the body directly (as opposed to heating the space around you as traditional steam and hot rock saunas do) the temperatures are lower making using a sauna for heart health more comfortable and enjoyable.
For the best results for sauna cardiovascular health, we recommend using your sauna regularly with a recommended session duration of 30-45 minutes at 45°C - 60°C depending on your level of fitness. During higher temperature sessions your heart rate can reach 150bpm but only ever set the temperature to what works best for you.
Other ways infrared saunas may help with sauna cardiovascular health include:
- Better sleep
- Relaxation and reducing stress
- More energy (saunas can also activate Cytochrome C Oxidase and increase ATP which boosts energy)
- Weight loss
