May 13, 2019
“Regular sauna bathing improves endothelial function which has beneficial effects on systemic blood pressure. A recent analysis of the same study also revealed that those taking a sauna frequently have a lower risk of pulmonary diseases.” – “Sauna Bathing and Incident Hypertension: A Prospective Cohort” Zaccardi, Francesco et al. American Journal of Hypertension, Volume 30, Issue 11, November 1, 2017.
“Do Far-Infrared Saunas Have Cardiovascular Benefits in People with Type 2 Diabetes?” – Beever, Richard. Canadian Journal of Diabetes, Volume 34, Issue 2, 2010.
“Our results suggest that infrared sauna use may be beneficial for lowering blood pressure and waist circumference. Subject adherence to infrared sauna use is greater than adherence to other lifestyle interventions. The combination of favourable compliance/adherence, as well as effectiveness in improving blood pressure and possibly waist circumference, makes infrared sauna therapy an attractive lifestyle option.”
