When you are looking into investing in a home infrared sauna you will encounter a lot of details about infrared heat. When you sit in a far infrared sauna, you are benefiting from three infrared wavelengths in one unit. You may be green when it comes to infrared sauna technology, so here is some information about infrared heat.
What Is Infrared Heat?
All JNH Lifestyles home saunas operate with infrared technology. Infrared heat is an invisible part of the sun’s spectrum, which can gently and comfortably penetrate the body’s tissue to produce a variety of health benefits. Infrared heat is natural since it is emitted from the sun and does not contain any harmful ultraviolet rays.
Infrared saunas that operate on infrared technology is very different from traditional steam saunas, as infrared heat is adequate at a very comfortable operating temperature compared to traditional saunas. For instance, an infrared sauna operates at temperatures of 110°F-140°F, whereas a traditional sauna can warm up to a scorching 200°F.
As we mentioned before, infrared heat can penetrate human tissue and has been shown to be seven times more effective than traditional sauna usage for weight loss, the cardiovascular system, or for detoxing, muscle pain relief, immune system boosting and gaining better skin texture.
Another feature of infrared heat is that the infrared spectrum consists of near (NIR), mid (MIR), and far (FIR) waves. We refer to it as the “Full Spectrum” sauna. Each wavelength has distinctive features and frequency ranges.
What Is The Difference Between Near, Mid, And Far Infrared?
Sweating is more important than people actually think. Our bodies are designed to sweat because it is a natural way for us to detox. Unfortunately, people don’t sweat regularly or not enough. Sweating allows the body to use the skin to clear out toxins.
The body is very good at flushing toxins out in this manner. However, this only happens when we make the body sweat. What is even worse is that many of us sit at our desks all day, and to add fuel to the fire, we are doing this in an air-conditioned indoor environment.
When you are in these conditions, the skin hoards the toxins inside the body and has very little possibility to get rid of them. To cope with the consequences of modern living, infrared saunas help the body to purify from the inside out. The three different infrared wavelengths accurately target specific health goals since they provide a huge range of health benefits. Advantages of the infrared spectrum on the body consists of the following:
Near infrared waves have a shorter frequency range because they have a lower micron level and can reach the epidermis layer of the skin.
Near infrared sauna benefits include:
Since mid-infrared wavelengths can penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, they are good for increasing the body’s circulation. Mid infrared wavelengths are so effective at boosting the cardiovascular system and reducing muscle and joint pain. After an intense workout stiff and sore muscles, as well as joints, can heal faster because mid infrared wavelengths penetrate deep into soft tissue where inflammation happens.
Additionally, mid infrared wavelengths can mimic the benefits of a passive cardiovascular workout. Enjoying regular mid infrared sauna sessions have proven to greatly stimulate blood flow, and its effects carry on even after you have finished your infrared sauna session.
Mid infrared sauna benefits include:
An advantage of far infrared wavelengths is that it can heat the body directly instead of just warming up the surrounding air. This increases your core body temperature and generates a deep, detoxifying sweat at a cellular level, where lots of toxins settle and squat. Also, far infrared wavelengths help to lower blood pressure and promote weight loss as studies have shown you can burn up to 600 calories in one 40 minute session.
It is the longest infrared wavelength of the three and can penetrate the deepest into the skin’s layers since it reaches the adipose tissues (fat cells) where toxins reside.
Far infrared sauna benefits include:
●Blood Pressure Reduction
Why Should You Buy A Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna?
To reach all your health needs and requirements, it is recommended to consider an infrared sauna that combines all three spectrums, a full spectrum. This guarantees you an effective sauna experience. When you have all three spectrums working together in harmony, you are certain to target all your health concerns in one sauna session.
The largest organ on the human body is the skin. The skin’s subcutaneous layer of fat hoards many toxins and is located just under the skin’s surface. A full spectrum infrared sauna can permeate the tissues up to a depth of two inches.
The temperature of a full spectrum infrared sauna is between 110°F to 140°F. Although it operates at a lower temperature compared to a traditional sauna, you will sweat a lot more in a full spectrum infrared sauna because it has full heat penetration.
In general, the body pumps ten to fourteen pints of blood every minute. The combination of near, mid and far infrared wavelengths increases the blood flow by twenty-six pints every minute. When blood flow is enhanced, there is more oxygen to help the body to repair cells and tissues.
Furthermore, a full spectrum infrared sauna triggers the sebaceous glands to emit harmful toxins, for instance, petrochemicals, mercury, and other heavy metals.
Fortunately, the positive effects of a full spectrum infrared sauna don’t stop when you step outside your unit because the body’s core stays healthy and happy all day as it continues to enjoy detoxing benefits, weight loss, and pain relief as well!
