Sauna and Exercise

We all know that using sauna has great results in our body and mind. But what about combination of sauna and exercise?

New research suggests that this combination is more effective in strengthening the cardiovascular functions, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Dr. Earric Lee, an exercise medicine and health science researcher at the University of Jyväskylä led the study which was published in the American Journal of Physiology-Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology. Visit HARVIA to find out more.

“I started using the sauna two decades ago when I was still a competitive athlete to aid recovery, and for muscle relaxation. Back then, I had no idea that the sauna originates from Finland. I did not have regular access to a sauna once I ended my athletic career, but I would use it whenever I had the opportunity. When I came to Finland in 2015, I realized that they were everywhere, so I started using them more frequently.”
