New Discovery links sauna use to reducing risk of dementia.
Sarah Knapton, Science Editor of the Daily Telegraph reports:
“Visiting the sauna regularly could reduce the risk of dementia”
Scientists in Finland have discovered that those who used a sauna between four and seven times a week (don’t forget, sauna bathing is an almost daily experience in Finland, and one in three households have a sauna), were 66% less likely to be diagnosed with dementia.
Professor Jari Laukabben also stated “It is known that cardiovascular health affects the brain as well, and the sense of wellbeing created by sauna bathing may also play a role”.
Previous studies also found that regular sauna sessions improved cardiovascular health.
