Steam and Sauna Flush Toxins

Flush Toxins

Due to the heat of a sauna and steam bathing, the core body temperature begins to rise. Sweat production is primarily designed to cool the body, and is composed of 99% water. However, deep sweating in a sauna or steam shower can help reduce levels of lead, copper, zinc, nickel, mercury and chemicals.

Steam and Sauna Cleanses The Skin

burn calories

According to U.S. Army medical research (Ward Dean, M.D.), “A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams in a sauna in a single session, consuming nearly 300 calories in the process.” The body consumes said calories due to the acceleration of heart activity (the cardiovascular section). As heart activity increases and as these processes demand more oxygen, the body begins to convert more calories into usable energy.

Steam and Sauna can induce a deeper sleep

induce a deeper sleep

Research has shown that a deeper, more relaxed sleep can result from steam & sauna use. In addition to the release of endorphins, body temperatures, which become elevated in the late evening, fall at bedtime. This slow, relaxing decline in endorphins is key in facilitating sleep. Numerous steam & sauna bathers worldwide recall the deep sleep experiences that they feel after bathing the the calming heat.

cleanses the skin

When the body begins to produce sweat via deep sweating, the skin is then cleansed and dead skin cells are replaced. Sweating rinses bacteria out of the epidermal layer and sweat ducts. Cleansing of the pores has been shown to improve the capillary circulation, while giving the skin a softer-looking quality.

Steam and Saunas bring about recreational and social benefits

recreational and social benefits

While the social benefit is rarely talked about, it's really actually quite important. The steam or sauna can be a private, personal area of relaxation and solitude. However, sauna can just as easily be a relaxing environment for socializing with family, friends and soon-to-be friends.

Steam and Saunas improve cardiovascular performance

cardiovascular performance

In the high temperatures of a traditional or infrared sauna, skin heats up and core body temperature rises. In response to these increase heat levels, the blood vessels near the skin dilate and "cardiac output" increases. Medical research has told us that the heart rate can rise from 60-70 bpm (beats per minute) to 110-120 bpm in the sauna (140-150 with more intensive bathing), and can often sink to below normal after the cooling off stage. With regular sauna usage, we not only train our heart muscles and improve the heart rate/cardiac output, but we also help the body's regulatory system.

Steam and Sauna fight illness

help fight illness

German sauna medical research shows that saunas were able to significantly reduce the incidences of colds and influenza amongst participants. As the body is exposed to the heat of a sauna and steam (in the case of traditional saunas), it produces white blood cells more rapidly, which in turn helps to fight illnesses and helps to kill viruses.In addition, saunas can relieve the uncomfortable symptoms of sinus congestion from from colds or allergies - especially when used with steam (tip: add eucalyptus to the water for added benefit and overall enjoyment). The steam vapor action helps to clear up unwanted congestion and is a wonderful aspect of the Finnish sauna experience.
