Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna boosts your immune system
Full Spectrum Infrared Saunas can boost your immune system
Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna
Did you know that Full Spectrum Infrared Saunas can help strengthen your immune system? Increasing internal body temperature is one of your body’s natural defenses against intruders (bacteria and viruses). These viruses and bacteria have trouble surviving in these higher temperatures, which is why you may get a fever from time to time. Specifically, research shows that symptoms of colds and flu-like illnesses are dramatically reduced if far infrared sauna therapy is used in its early stages.
Boost your immune system
Additionally, research shows that when you are exposed to higher temperatures, your body will produce more immune cells amping up your body’s defenses! When you do a sauna, you are helping your body build up its immune system against viruses and bacteria that can lead to the common cold or flu.
Improve your health
Full Spectrum Infrared Saunas will also help with blood flow via vasodilation (aka opening of the blood vessels). This helps get antibodies and immune cells to the affected area faster, increasing your chance of a full and speedy recovery! While suffering from your cold or flu you also may feel drained and lethargic. Vasodilation will also allow more oxygen flow to your brain, relieving the sense of exhaustion commonly associated with the cold and flu.
Boost your immune system with Sauna use.
Many studies have shown that regular infrared sauna use can boost your immune system. This means that not only can sauna use help against the cold and flu but it can also help prevent any other illness that a strong immune system can fight off. Other studies show that infrared saunas are also great for heart health and maintaining healthy blood pressure.
Weight loss with full-spectrum infrared saunas
Weight loss is one of the many benefits of using infrared saunas. Not only does it help you look better but reducing the amount of fat (adipose tissue) on your body also reduces systemic inflammation. Systemic inflammation works against your body’s immune system. Reducing body fat will boost your immune system and help you fight off illnesses.
The great thing about using a full spectrum infrared sauna is that it is a passive activity that is good for you. If you are tired or sore and you don’t want to work out you can go lay down in a sauna for 30 to 40 minutes and get many health benefits without much effort. Additionally, you will usually come out of the sauna feeling refreshed and invigorated. It is important to keep in mind that these benefits are gained through consistent use of saunas as opposed to a one time visit. Looking good and feeling good is why people love to use infrared saunas.
Red Light Therapy
Full Spectrum Infrared Light also can penetrate deep layers of cells to push out toxins and waste products produced naturally throughout the day. To get the most out of your Sauna Session, pair it with LED Light Therapy to supercharge your mitochondria or Compression Therapy to help increase blood flow and lymphatic draining – all state of the art technology designed to help your body be at its peak!
