Bikini Season Lifesaver
Lower weight and waist circumference
Burn calories while relaxing
Passive cardio workout
Using infrared heat technology to burn calories, far infrared saunas are clinically shown to aid weight loss. In a 2009 study, far infrared saunas were shown to help lower weight and waist circumference in just a three-month period. The common theme among subjects in the study was that sauna use was similar to moderate exercise but “much more relaxing”. Therefore, the Freshlife Sunlighten far infrared sauna can be an effective lifestyle advantage for those who cannot participate in traditional exercise programs due to medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, cardiovascular or respiratory problems.¹
In addition, according to information published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, far-infrared sauna weight loss sessions were shown to burn up to 600 calories.²
During a far infrared sauna weight loss session, core temperatures increase. The body has to work hard to cool itself, causing a healthy sweat. Using an infrared sauna increases heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, burning more calories, leading to more weight loss. And blood flow rises, increasing from 5-7 quarts up to 13 quarts a minute.³
Plus, regular use of the Freshlife Sunlighten sauna may provide many of the same benefits as regular exercise, such as cardiovascular conditioning. That’s right, using Sunlighten for infrared weight loss therapy is like giving yourself a passive cardio workout – wherever and whenever you need it!
Frequently Asked Questions About Sauna Weight Loss
How do saunas help me lose weight?
Sunlighten saunas have been proven to aid in weight loss by heating your core temperature to induce sweating. Increases in blood flow and heart rate are a result, which, much like moderate exercise, has shown to help you lose weight. Saunas also help you lose weight by easing aches and pains associated with weight training, helping you get back into the gym the next day.
How much weight can I lose in a sauna?
There’s a lot that goes into weight loss, including your current weight, and eating and exercise habits. Just as there’s no one diet for every person, there’s no one number of pounds lost using an infrared sauna. Sessions have been shown to burn as much as 600 calories, which may be similar to an hour-long jogging session on a treadmill.
What is the difference in steam sauna and Freshlife’s infrared sauna for weight loss?
A traditional sauna uses wet or dry heat to warm the air around you, which induces sweating. This can aid in weight loss, but it has shown that the weight loss is mainly due to loss of water – or heavy sweating. An infrared sauna heats your body from the inside out, which allows you to stay in the sauna longer and increases your heart rate. Infrared sauna use results in more calories burned in a shorter period of time. Furthermore, Solocarbon infrared heat allows for most of the far infrared wavelength to be near 9.4 microns, which is the level at which the human body absorbs infrared energy. This is also the frequency at which a water molecule resonates or vibrates. This vibration causes a release of cellular toxins. This optimal micron output allows for deeper penetration of far infrared heat, which improves weight loss efforts.
