Regular sauna use cuts risk of heart disease.

Feb 28, 2017 | admin

A study conducted by University of Eastern Finland  has found that those who visited a sauna two or three times a week were 24% less likely to die from cardiovascular disease, sudden cardiac arrest or pulmonary embolism.

Visiting four to seven times a week (a bit extreme in our view, unless you have a sauna at home), reduced the risks by 40%.

The length of time spent in the sauna also had an impact, as those spending more than 11 minutes were less likely to die from sudden cardiac arrest, and spending more than 19 minutes reduced the risk by a huge 52% !

Researchers stated “We don’t know why spending more time in the sauna offers greater longevity, but possibly the relaxation time and the leisure of life that allows for more time for leisure, or the camaraderie of the sauna all contribute”.
