Sauna Suit Detoxification
Sauna Suit vs. steam rooms
A sauna suit is basically a waterproof tracksuit that retains your body heat and perspiration while wearing it. Your kidneys and liver are your body’s best detoxifiers. Sweating only releases traces of toxins. Also, weight loss during periods of heavy perspiration is primarily due to fluid loss that should be replenished as you sweat.
You might be wondering what the difference is between a sauna suit and a steam room. Both types of rooms are used to promote sweating, but they use different types of heat to accomplish it. Saunas use dry heat produced from a stove or hot rocks to escalate the room up to 195°F (90.5°C) with very low humidity.
On the other hand, steam rooms involve moist heat. They operate at lower temperatures, usually around 110-120°F (43-49°C) and 100 percent relative humidity.
Saunas have been traditionally used to produce a feeling of relaxation. As your heart rate goes up and your blood vessels dilate, there is an increase in blood flow to the skin. Saunas may also improve blood circulation.
Your sympathetic nervous system becomes more active in order to maintain a temperature balance in your body.
A sauna Suit might also help those with chronic pain and arthritis. A study in people with chronic musculoskeletal diseases including rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis discovered that sauna sessions improved pain, stiffness, and fatigue over the course of four weeks.
