Sunlighten infrared saunas are more effective in removing toxins through the skin than traditional saunas because in a Sunlighten infrared sauna 80 to 85% of the sweat is water with the non-water portion being cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid¹.
Sunlighten saunas are highly effective for detoxification because of our highly-efficient and patented Solocarbon infrared heating technology – the only technology proven to raise core body temperature by two-to-three degrees. Rather than simply heating the ambient air
to draw out toxins, our sauna detox will heat your core to expel them.
In a 2009 study, Sunlighten infrared saunas were shown to help lower weight and waist circumference in just a three-month period.
The common theme among subjects in the study was that far infrared sauna use was similar to moderate exercise but "much more relaxing".
A study published in The Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy showed significant improvements in skin appearance after just 12 weeks of sauna skin therapy using near-infrared technology. Participants experienced a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity and firmness¹.
Sunlighten’s Solocarbon 3-in-1® is the only infrared sauna heater on the market with LED near-infrared light therapy! In fact, it comes with an anti-aging program that is designed from this study!
A blend of near, mid and far infrared starts at a high intensity to increase heart rate and cardiac output then lowers to sustain heart rate circulation increases to promote healthy blood pressure.
A 2013 study conducted at the Auburn University at Montgomery compared stretching in a Sunlighten mPulse 3-in-1 sauna compared to a typical training room environment. Participants completed a series of hamstring stretches in random order with 48 hours separating the sessions.
Results showed that acute flexibility increased up to 3x in the mPulse sauna than without! Benefits to the increased range of motion include joint mobility, less friction in the joints, enabling of joint function to diminish stiffness and joint relaxation.
There’s a relaxing and effortless way to reduce stress! Scientific evidence shows that infrared sauna therapy helps the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol. While cortisol levels stay the same or rise slightly during a Sunlighten sauna therapy session, they drop immediately afterward.
In fact, Sunlighten saunas have been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure with regular use.
Infrared heat is one part of the electromagnetic spectrum. It occurs naturally as the non-harmful component of the sun's radiation. Infrared heat is safe. It is a wavelength you would experience as the gentle, penetrating warmth. The same feeling as being in a sunny room on a cold winter's day.
As a sauna heating technology, infrared is a recent innovation of the last two decades. Yet, the same technology has been used extensively. Especially in other industries from healthcare to space exploration for many decades.
Infrared Saunas by Sunlighten have been endorsed by health and wellness professionals worldwide.
“Sunlighten Saunas are different to regular saunas because infrared heat waves penetrate facial and muscular tissue, helping to rid the body of toxins that are stored in deeper layers than the simple sweat glands that are activated in a conventional sauna”
“Sunlighten Saunas are indispensable to healthy living in our current toxic environment. Even if people are careful with their diets, personal care products and household cleaners, the amount of pollutants such as chemicals, preservatives and pesticides are so prevalent today that they are impossible to escape.”
“Working with high performance athletes, Dr Spencer believes that regular sessions in a Sunlighten sauna are essential for promoting muscle recovery, reducing tension and eliminating performance inhibiting toxic burdens from the body.”
