Did you know that your heart is the size of your fist and the strongest muscle in your body? However, although impressive and strong, your heart can also become vulnerable from habitual risk factors like smoking, eating an unhealthy diet or putting it under stress.
Here are 8 ways you can keep cardiovascular diseases at bay:
- Control your blood pressure
- Keep your cholesterol and triglyceride levels under control
- Stay at a healthy weight
- Eat a healthy diet
- Get regular exercise
- Limit alcohol
- Don’t smoke
- Manage stress
Studies have also shown benefits of sauna use in lowering risk of heart disease, and heat therapy is known to be beneficial for many different systems within our bodies. Sunlighten saunas provide heat through infrared technology in place of standard heating elements. This helps dilate blood vessels and reduce the volume of inner lining, thus increasing circulation to promote healthy blood pressure.
The infrared rays are also able to heat up the body from within instead of heating the surrounding air and the surface of your skin, to better purify your body and relief aches and pains in your body. Aside from lowering blood pressure, detox and pain relief, the Sunlighten saunas are also great for weight loss, blood circulation and skin purification.
