Questions and Answers About Infrared Saunas•
Posted on September 09 2022
Most facilities that offer infrared sauna treatments recommend using the sauna three to four days a week. If you are healthy and can tolerate these four days, you can use the sauna every day.
How long should I sit in an infrared sauna?
If you are a frequent visitor to infrared saunas, you can stay indoors for a maximum of 45 to 50 minutes. Staying indoors longer is unlikely to have more significant health benefits, as your body sweats out most of the harmful toxins from your body within 45 to 50 minutes.
Do infrared saunas burn fat?
Now, infrared saunas not only burn fat but also improve overall circulation. As heat passes through your body, your peripheral blood vessels dilate, similar to what happens during exercise.
What should I eat after an infrared sauna?
Pretzels – low in sodium and free of oily fats.
Cheese - Milk protein is better at night than meat protein.
Fruit - Natural vitamins and fiber from Granny Smith apples or any fresh fruit.
What not to do after a sauna?
Sauna enthusiasts should allow enough time to cool down before warming up again. If you can, don't shower immediately after the sauna. It's better for your body if you cool down in fresh air first.
