SWEAT IT OUT: Benefits of Infrared Sauna Therapy
Sweating is one effective way to rid your body of the bad stuff and burn extra calories. Outside of your regular exercise regimen, infrared saunas can help your body release a number of chemicals along with additional benefits both inside and outside of your body that we researched via MindBodyGreen, such as:
Infrared saunas can balance your body’s primary stress hormone, cortisol. Therapy will also reduce inflammation and relax your muscles, promoting tension relief allover, making for a great chill space to decompress and release your stressors.
Infrared sauna therapy will eliminate about seven times more toxins that swedish saunas, making it a perfect ingredient for your detox recipe. Sweat out the bad, earn the good through a healthy diet and exercise.
The heat from infrared saunas will increase your core body temperature, and your circulation and heart rate will increase as well. When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature and/or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories and your circulation may naturally improve as well (one study showed that you can burn up to 600 cals in a 30-minute infrared sauna therapy session!).
Infrared saunas may also help clear and purify your skin by removing toxins from your pores and as aforementioned increase your circulation, resulting in glowing, healthier skin.
