How do Infrared Sauna’s with Chromotherpy aid weight loss, calorie burning, and metabolism boosting?
A 30 minute sauna session burns anywhere from 300-600+ calories. That’s the equivalent of going on a 45 minute jog, but instead you’re relaxing in a sauna! How cool is that?
Infrared saunas are known to help break the plateau in weight loss and are especially helpful in releasing stubborn belly fat. That’s because heavy metals and toxic chemicals accumulate primarily in fat cells, especially belly fat, and those toxins actually keep the body from eliminating the fat itself. Many of those stored belly fat toxins are classified as obesogens because they cause fat cells to get larger or multiply. There’s also evidence that obesogens slow the metabolism and increase appetite. Toxins play a huge role in belly fat storage. Helping your body eliminate these toxins will go a long way at losing that stubborn fat. A clean body is able to metabolize unwanted fat properly. The best way to quickly and effectively eliminate these stubborn toxins is through infrared sauna treatment!
Sauna sessions boost your metabolism, too! While you’re relaxing in the infrared heat, your body is hard at work pumping blood and increasing sweat production to try to cool itself. This increases circulation, boosts metabolism and burns calories.
Infrared Sauna for Cardio Exercise
Infrared saunas make it possible for people in wheelchairs or those who are unable to exert themselves or for those who wouldn’t otherwise exercise achieve cardiovascular exercise. A single sauna session has been compared to the same cardio benefits as a 6 to 9 mile run! That makes it an effective weight control and fitness program with the benefits of regular exercise. So cool, right?! The Journal of American Medical Association (8/7/81) explains that infrared sauna use produces a “stress on the cardiovascular system and its regular use may be as effective, as a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories, as regular exercise.” While you are relaxing in the infrared heat, the body responds to this deep heat by increasing both heart volume and rate. This beneficial heart stress leads to a sought-after cardiovascular training and conditioning effect. Medical studies confirm the use of a sauna to provide cardio conditioning as the body works to cool itself and involves substantial increases in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. NASA even uses infrared heat to maintain cardio exercise in astronauts during long space flights!
