Sauna Use May Offer Dramatic Improvements to Athletic Performance

In her recent video about health benefits of saunas, Rhonda Perciavalle Patrick, Ph.D., a biomedical scientist who has done extensive research on aging, cancer and nutrition, showcases multiple sauna health benefits for muscle recovery, improved cell health and regeneration, and hyperthermic conditioning.

The good news: Sunlighten Infrared Saunas provide the safest and best independently tested and proven tool to help achieve the many sauna benefits outlined by Dr. Patrick.

One of the health benefits of saunas, according to Dr. Patrick, is the fact that the heat acclimation – whether from exercise or sauna use – increases blood flow to muscles, the heart, and skin, all of which can lead to positive effects, including gains in endurance and muscle mass.

A few other highlights from Dr. Patrick’s research:

  • sauna use may naturally generate a massive boost in human growth hormone, which is great not only for athletes, but also for anyone over the age of 30 (the age when growth hormone naturally begins to drop off)
  • sauna use may help muscle recovery after an injury
  • sauna use may improve insulin sensitivity, which may then lead to increased muscle growth

Sunlighten saunas provide all of these health benefits and more with our far and full spectrum infrared sauna heaters, the only infrared heaters on the market clinically shown to raise core temperature, resulting in hyperthermic conditioning. Our full spectrum mPulse line of saunas is the only one on the market that has shown tested, positive results for muscle recovery, and produces true near infrared heat to promote cell health and regeneration.
