Benefits of the sauna

In a recent article, skytg24 took care of the benefits brought to our body and in particular to the heart in the use of saunas leading to one study conducted by the University of Finland during which the experts monitored for almost 15,000 people for 15 years with an average age of 63.

Published in the scientific journal Biomed Central, this study showed that making the sauna four times a week for half an hour reduces the risk of cardiovascular events in both men and women, bringing benefits similar to those of physical training. The survey monitored almost 1.7,000 people for 15 years, with an average age of 63. The results obtained showed that the higher the frequency of the saunas and the lower the risk of cardiovascular mortality. The sauna enlarges the blood vessels, thus reducing blood pressure, subjecting the heart to an 'exercise' that trains and strengthens it.

The sauna reduces the risk of cardiovascular events
Ciro Indolfi, president of the Italian Society of Cardiology (SIC), explains that the number of weekly saunas depends on the positive effects on the body. "Four are much more effective than one or two," clarifies the expert. "The study shows that sauna regulars in the 15 years have developed only 181 cardiovascular events, then fatal results, corresponding to about 2.7 deaths per 1000 individuals compared to 10.1 deaths among those who never did it or only once sometimes. Values ​​that attest to a significant reduction in mortality risk. In addition, it also affects the time you remain in the cabin: the ideal duration is at least 30 minutes. "

Effects on blood circulation
Indolfi emphasizes that the effects of the sauna have a positive effect on the blood circulation. "The heat can improve it by acting on the endothelium cells that line the arteries, reducing their rigidity, stimulating the sympathetic system in the acute phase and lowering the arterial pressure. In addition, the sauna determines an increase in heart rate up to 120-150 beats per minute, comparable to that achieved with low or moderate intensity exercise. "However, the sauna is not suitable for everyone, as explained by Indolfi. heart failure, hypertension, hypotension, acute infections, epilepsy, myocarditis or pericarditis should be avoided.Therefore always to undergo a medical check-up before undergoing a particularly long sauna.

That was good for the body and the spirit, we are already sufficiently convinced by the first use because the impressions that remain are all positive. Now, the studio will also help the most wary of re-evaluating the product we offer in different versions, from the traditional sauna, with the Harwa and Sawo stoves, to the infrared cabin for consumption and more parsiomonic uses and the combined ones that integrate both types in one only product.
