Sauna Weight Loss

Sauna’s cardiovascular benefits are like a cardio workout.

A 2019 study compared participants’ cardiovascular effects in a sauna and on an exercise bike. The increase in heart rate was similar to a short, moderate workout. Researchers stated, “A sauna session is a physical strain. Its long-term positive effects are comparable to sports activities.” The focus was on the benefits to the heart and cardiovascular system, rather than weight loss or muscle development. We call it a “passive cardio workout.”

Release toxins and reduce inflammation.

Studies have shown that:

Relieve stress and lower cortisol.

Studies have shown the direct connection between stress, cortisol and weight gain. Chronic stress leads to cortisol production in large amounts, which leads to obesity and weight gain. Dr. Amy Myers recommends infrared sauna for weight loss to help break the connection between cortisol and weight gain by naturally relieving stress. Stress relief lowers cortisol, which can help create a healthy metabolism, thus contributing to weight loss.

Increase cellular metabolism.

People often report feeling energized after infrared sauna sessions. Cells need energy to perform their best, just like our bodies need energy to function. Near infrared stimulates cellular energy when the body’s energy-producing cells absorb the light energy (photons) and produce more adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which fuels all cells. This can increase cell health and performance throughout the body and all of its systems.
