Sauna benefits effect your skin, heart, muscles toxin levels and more
Saunas feel good and are used to revitalize the body and mind, they help the body to detoxify in unique and important ways. Infrared sauna helps to eliminate toxins that the body would otherwise have a difficult time eliminating (gasoline, solvents, pesticides, ingredients in toothpaste and personal care products, even toxic heavy metals such as mercury and cadmium). Heat from the sauna increases skin temperature which enhances the amount of toxins eliminated through the sweat and oils secreted. The longer the skin is heated, the more toxins are eliminated. By excreting these toxins and then washing them off your body, your toxic load is lowered and cellular health improves.
"A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams in a sauna, consuming nearly 300 kcal, which is equivalent to running 2–3 miles." Journal of the American Medical Association. Dean W (August 1981).
