Sweat is your body’s way of regulating the heat it receives, such as from exercise or trips to an infrared sauna. In doing so, sweat also has the potential to remove unwanted toxins that could endanger your health. Here are a few things you should know before entering an IR sauna unit:
Many health experts recommend ample hydration before entering the sauna. The unit’s IR beams can heat up the body and force more sweat production, so take note to have extra water supplies inside the sauna to replace your lost fluids.
Some studies identify sweat generated by the body inside a far-infrared sauna as comprising between 80 to 85% water, with toxic substances making up the remainder. These vary from heavy metals like lead and nickel, to various compounds you can find in general consumer products, including chemical dyes in personal-care items. Calcium that your body is not able to absorb can encourage fibromyalgia, and that too can be mitigated by sweating.
Every trace of foreign substances that is safely extracted from your body can mean more chances of you being able to look, feel and perform better in your daily life. Why not spend some time at an infrared sauna and get closer to a healthier you?
