Burn 600 Calories in 15 minutes.
Outstanding Caloric Consumption and Weight Control In Guyton’s Textbook of Medical Physiology, we find that producing one gram of sweat requires 0.568 kcal. The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) states, “A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams in a sauna, consuming nearly 300kcal, which is equivalent to running 2~3 miles. A heat-conditioned person can sweat off 600~800 kcal with no adverse effects. While the weight of the loss can be regained by drinking water, the calories consumed will not be.”
The Relax FIR Sauna helps generate two or three times the sweat produced in a conventional sauna, so the implications for increased caloric consumption are quite impressive. The Relax FIR Sauna can thus play a pivotal role in both weight control and cardiovascular conditioning. This can be very valuable for those who don’t exercise enough and for those who can’t exercise yet want an effective weight control and fitness maintenance program which provides the caloric burn, detoxification, metabolic improvement, and especially the energetic body fluid activation benefits of regular exercise. There is of course no substitute for regular exercise to maintain health in body and mind. FIR fully supports exercise, yet provides similar benefits for the body’s energetic function.
