SAUNA IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH
THE 7 THINGS TO KNOW
1. THE SAUNA MAKES YOU LOSE WEIGHT
One of the reasons that attracts more men and women to the sauna is because it makes you lose weight. Contrary to what one might think, however, slimming is not done by sweating, but by increasing the heart rate. The heart, beating faster, helps the body to burn more calories. On average a sauna helps to burn about 300 calories, the equivalent of an hour’s walk.
2. PURIFIES THE BODY
Another important benefit of is to purify the organism. The sweat that is produced during a sauna helps to eliminate toxins from the body, also improving immune functions. Sweating eliminates heavy metals and defends yourself better against infections. With fifteen minutes of sauna the same amount of heavy metal particles are eliminated that the kidneys eliminate in 24 hours.
3. ELIMINATES STRESS AND ISONNIA
The benefits of the sauna are not only physical, but also psychological. Sweating and relaxation not only eliminate toxins and contractures, but also anxiety. The levels of stress decrease, thanks also to the slow times imposed by the treatment. You begin to sleep better and feel positive even during the day. Those who suffer from insomnia can finally begin to notice changes, to sleep better and more. The feeling of chronic fatigue disappears.
4. CLEANS THE SKIN
Even the skin benefits from the sauna, because it comes out deeply clean. The heat dilates the pores more than normal, allowing the elimination of dead cells, toxins and everything that “soils” the surface of the body. It comes out with a more elastic and hydrated skin, which is better resistant to smog, weather conditions such as cold and warm and infections. In addition, a sauna improves the situation for those suffering from acne, pimples or blackheads.
5. STRENGTHENS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
The high temperatures, especially those of the Finnish sauna, help to eliminate the bacteria that cause infections. Also for this reason the immune system comes out strengthened.
6. IT HELPS BREATHING
Small breathing problems such as nasal congestion and cold are relieved by saunas. Doctors also recommend it to relieve asthma, although of course they do not eliminate the root problem.
7.DELAYS IN AGEING
The heat of dry and wet saunas brings another benefit that few know: with the elimination of toxins also eliminates free radicals, those responsible for the aging of the organism. In addition to the appearance of the skin, they improve the general condition of the body, such as that of the joints and muscles.
