Infrared Saunas And Cholesterol

High cholesterol levels can be extremely impactful, in a negative way, on your cardiovascular systems, and, if you suffer from bad cholesterol, then you’re fully aware of how deadly this condition can be. Thankfully, our infrared sauna technology is here to help.

How Infrared Saunas Can Help With Cholesterol

The 360 degrees of heat penetration in a Good Health Saunas’ infrared sauna plays a huge role in combatting the symptoms of bad cholesterol. Feeling the impact of healthy heat to all areas of the body while enjoying the comfort of our interior bench allows individuals to remain calm and relaxed while absorbing penetrating infrared heat that stimulates blood flow, reduces inflammation, and causes sweating. Each of these benefits aids in reducing cholesterol levels in the same way they would if you were outside jogging or in the gym lifting weights. Don’t believe us? Then trust the experts! 


Science Backs Using Infrared Saunas For Cholesterol

Infrared saunas have been scientifically proven to reduce the risks associated with bad cholesterol, and Dorota Gryka of the Institute of Biomedicine at the University of Cracow states, “Regular heat exposure stimulates the sympathetic nervous system and provides physiological effects that actually resemble those we get from physical exercise.” So, would you rather pump some iron in the gym all morning or enjoy a relaxing session in a Good Health Saunas infrared sauna?

Tips for the Best Sauna Experience

1. Stretch before entering the sauna.

Stretching wakes up your body, gets your blood pumping, and increases your flexibility, and these preparations will ensure that your mind, body, and health will see the greatest results after your infrared sauna session.

2. Hydrate your body.

They say you should drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day, and they’re not wrong! Keeping your body hydrated guarantees that you’ll have the stamina to enjoy an entire session of healthy heat in an infrared sauna.

3. Find the right settings.

Not everyone has the same body, so not everyone should have the same settings when it comes to their infrared sauna experience. If you’re looking to truly relax, then you may want to adjust the chromotherapy lighting to our cool blue, turn the heat to a lower temperature, and play some calming tunes. But, if you’re someone who wants to use the infrared sauna to feel energized, then perhaps a radiant orange, higher temperature, and an inspiring music selection is the way to go.

4. Take advantage of the bench.

Our infrared saunas come equipped with a comfortable bench that’s stationed at just the right height, so use it! The bench gives you somewhere to put your feet up to relax, sit calmly if you want to meditate, or provides an area for you to do that stretching we talked about earlier.
