Why you should visit a Sauna more regularly â€“ the health benefits
We are aware many people have spoken about the benefits a sauna may bring you and your body. However, we feel the health benefits are too good to not mention again.
Let’s face it, physically, nothing is more reinvigorating than a healthy sweat each day. Tension fades, muscles unwind and mentally we feel revived! A sauna can truly prepare you and help you feel ready for whatever the day ahead may bring.
A few minutes a day is all it takes to look and feel better, so here’s some of the benefits it may bring to you and your beautiful naked body!
Depending on the duration of sauna use, you will see circulation improvements that are similar to the effects of moderate exercise. Your heart rate may increase to 100 to 150 beats per minute while the growth hormone release increases by as much as 200 to 300%. Sauna use can also help improve athletic performance and stamina due to that increase in circulation.
The heat that Saunas produce has been proven to positively impact your mitochondria. In other words, these are the so called ‘batteries’ powering your cells. Therefore, through prolonged periods under heat stress, saunas can help your body naturally produce more energy and stay fit.
Reduce blood pressure
The heat from saunas can also help widen blood vessels and improve circulation. Amazingly, this can help to reduce blood pressure and heart health!
A healthier brain
Take your clothes off, get sweaty, boost your memory? No we’re not talking about sex, but the wonderful sauna! In a recent study, men who sat in a sauna multiple times per week had a 65 percent lower risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer’s than those who used them only once a week. The research suggested that this could be connected to increased blood flow to the brain that is associated with using saunas regularly.
Looking to lose weight? Saunas could be the answer to your weight loss journey! Regular sauna use is shown to regulate the appetite, increase metabolism, and improve oxygen utilization, all helping to fuel weight loss along with a reduction in body fat. Sounds pretty good to us!
Overall, it’s undeniable that the body’s response to gentle, persistent heat is well-documented and proven day in and out by people all across the globe. That’s why we love them at Clover Spa and Hotel. Wanting to get involved?
