Did you know that the average person sweats out about a quart a day. You can pump out that much sweat sitting in a sauna in just 15 mins. It's mostly just water but about 1% is a combination of salt and fat! We sweat to regulate our body temperature and rid the body of waste products. Yes, we ALL have toxins in our bodies that got there by our food, air and water. It doesn't matter how pure your diet and lifestyle is, your body contains traces of toxins.
This picture is a screen shot of my phone I took sitting in the Marriott sauna post workout. I was coming up on 10 mins and that happened! Now THAT is a sauna done right!!
My FAVORITE thing to do after a workout is sit in the sauna. I like to spend at least 10 mins in one post workout.
Many health BENEFITS come from sitting in a SAUNA:
Sweating Toxins out- as I mentioned above
Helps the HEART! Your heart gets a gentle workout as the heat of the sauna dilates the capillaries and improves blood flow
And the sauna just feels AMAZING! Especially that one!
