For an average person, a 15 minute sauna session can remove the same amount of impurities that would take your kidneys 24 hours to remove.
Weight Loss – During a 10-15 minute sauna session, your heart rate increases by 50-75%. This provides the same metabolic result as physical exercise.
Relaxation – Lactic acid which causes soreness and muscle fatigue is also released through sweating. This makes a trip to the sauna especially desirable for anyone who works out, or engages in rigorous physical activity.
Increased Circulation – Spending time in a sauna will expand blood vessels and help circulation.
