  • Heat stress is an important way of optimizing heat shock proteins (HSP) inside your cells that trigger mitochondrial biogenesis, thereby supporting your overall health, especially your cardiovascular and brain health
  • Sauna users have been found to have fewer chronic health problems and lower mortality risk. They also tend to be far less prone to contract the common cold and/or influenza
  • Compared to once-a-week saunas, taking a sauna four or more times a week has been shown to reduce your risk of death from heart disease by 50 percent, high blood pressure by 47 percent, dementia by 66 percent, respiratory diseases and pneumonia by 41 and 37 percent respectively, and premature death from all causes by 40 percent
  • Taking a sauna one to three times per week has been shown to lower your stroke risk by 12 percent, while daily sauna use (four to seven times a week) can reduce your risk by as much as 62 percent
  • Infrared saunas are particularly known for their ability to promote detoxification, as the heat is able to penetrate deeper into your tissues. Near-infrared saunas have additional benefits, as near-infrared interacts with light absorbing molecules in your mitochondria and water molecules
