6 Benefits of Sauna in Winter

Reduce dementia risk

Compared with those who used the sauna once a week, those who used the sauna 4 to 7 times a week had a 66% lower risk of developing various dementias and a 65% lower risk of Alzheimer's disease. The results remained the same after taking into account factors such as age, body mass index, alcohol consumption, smoking, previous heart disease, and type 2 diabetes.

Remove moisture from the body

People with damp and hot constitution can let the moisture and heat in the body dissipate through sweat, relax Qi and blood, and relieve muscle soreness by steaming in the sauna. Therefore, those with heavy limbs, yellow and greasy tongue coating, oily face, and many acne-prone people with a damp-heat constitution can often go to the sauna to expel the moisture from the body.

Reduce the incidence of infectious diseases

Studies have shown that taking a sauna at least twice a week can significantly reduce the incidence of potentially deadly infectious diseases such as pneumonia. Men who used the sauna regularly were almost 30 percent less likely to develop the life-threatening disease. Taking a sauna four or more times a week further reduced the risk, with an almost 40% reduction in incidence.

hypotensive

Frequent sauna baths can help avoid developing high blood pressure. High blood pressure is an important risk factor for heart disease. Researchers at the University of Eastern Finland found that men who took a sauna at least four times a week had almost halved their risk of heart disease, compared with their peers who only took a sauna once a week. Men who used the sauna 4-7 times a week had a 46% lower risk of high blood pressure, and men who used the sauna 2-3 times a week had a 24% lower risk of developing high blood pressure.

Eliminate excess body fat

The naked body is exposed to a constant high-temperature mist. Through a lot of sweating, the capillaries of the skin are fully expanded, the blood circulation is accelerated, the tissue cells in the body receive more oxygen and nutrients, and the excess fat waste and waste accumulated in the body. Lactic acid, etc. are also quickly excreted.

relieve joint pain

For rheumatism, arthritis and other cold syndromes that are prone to attack in winter, sauna steaming can relieve body pain and relax joints through continuous alternating heat and cold.
