Far Infrared Sauna has amazing benefits! At KG Recovery Lounge, we pride ourselves on thoroughly researching and understanding the science behind everything we say and do. Every claim we make on our page is backed by a scientific reference. We feel it is important to note that these are proven Far Infrared Sauna benefits. Far Infrared Sauna heat increases your blood circulation to help stimulate the sweat glands, releasing built up toxins which can be eliminated by the liver and bowel. Regular Infrared Sauna sessions can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of accumulated highly toxic metals such as lead, mercury, nickel, alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and other organic and inorganic compounds. Burn up to 600 calories  in 60 minutes!

Detoxification: We are all exposed to hundreds of toxic chemicals on a daily basis. Many toxins are found in virtually 100% of blood and/or fat samples in the population. These toxins cause cellular and DNA damage, damage to the nervous system and brain, increase your risk of dementia, disrupt the endocrine system, and cause altered metabolism and obesity. Toxins have been proven to be excreted in the sweat, even when levels are undetectable in the blood, proving that our body uses sweat to actively rid itself of these toxins.

Cardiovascular Benefits: Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in high income countries including the United States. Virtually all adults have some degree of heart disease. Cardiovascular far infrared sauna benefits have been looked at in dozens of studies. Far infrared sauna therapy has been shown to have positive effects on blood pressure, heart disease, and one large study found that frequent sauna users had a lower risk of death from cardiovascular causes compared to non sauna users.
