The Science Behind Infrared Saunas

0 Comment

Hey you guys! Now that I'm back in Utah, I wanted to show you guys my Health Mate sauna and tell you the four main reasons why I'm a big believer in the health benefits of Infrared saunas. I try to use mine at least two to three times a week for thirty minutes each time.

My interest in saunas was initially inspired by a blog post titled, "Are Saunas the Next Big PerformanceEnhancing “Drug”? " It's definitely worth a read. I’m always fascinated by the science behind why things work, and how they affect your health.

So without further adieu, here are the four reasons I believe saunas are beneficial for your health that are backed by science:

  1. Reduce inflammation (inflammation leads to chronic disease)
  2. Speeds up recovery (especially awesome if you're sore after workouts. If you can alleviate soreness, you can actually speed up progress as well.)
  3. Increases blood flow (which is why it helps with recovery time your muscles are getting the nutrients they need from the increased blood flow) 
  4. Flushes toxins (you're sweating the toxins out every time you sit in the sauna)

You can read more on the health benefits of infrared saunas and decide if one is right for you here: healthmatesauna.com. Health Mate is offering my followers a discount as well.

Sitting in my sauna is something I enjoy doing not only because it feels good, but because it’s healthy for me as well. If you want a tour of mine, I filmed a video here. As always, I advocate that you do your research, look into the actual science behind it and decide for yourself if something is right for you before purchasing anything.

Fist bump,

Drew
