5 Hidden Benefits of Sweating
While the main purpose of sweating is obvious — to cool your body down — there are other not-so-obvious benefits of sweating.
Saunas, bathhouses, and sweat lodges have been used by Europeans, Native Americans, and many other civilizations for centuries. (1) Even then, people realized that increased sweating had certain healing benefits. As science has advanced, people began to observe the connection between sweat and health on a deeper level.
1. A Natural Antibiotic
Sweating can decrease your chances of getting the flu by about one-third! This is because of a natural antibiotic called dermacidin. This antibiotic is excreted with your sweat to form a protective layer against bacteria, viruses, and infection. It also helps good microorganisms on your skin to thrive. (2)
2. Removes Chemicals and Heavy Metals
Chemicals in your environment could cause complications in your behavior, brain, and blood pressure. Sweat may help get rid of dangerous chemicals, like BPA and PCB. (3) Evidence also suggests that it helps get rid of heavy metals, such as lead and arsenic. One study found that after sauna therapy, the amount of heavy metals in a person’s body were significantly lower. (4)
3. Reduces Stress
Activities that make you sweat, like exercising or sitting in a sauna, can help reduce anxiety and depression and promote relaxation. Commonly referred to as “runner’s high,” sweating can activate happy hormones that create a sense of euphoria. Sweating not only promotes healthy hormones, but it also lowers stress hormones. (5)
4. Promotes Weight Loss
While sweating doesn’t directly kill fat cells, it can aid weight loss by helping you burn calories, increase your metabolism, and by providing more energy. (6) Infrared saunas can help you work up enough sweat to gain these benefits. Better yet, if you use a sauna after exercising, it can help you reach your desired weight. (7)
5. Helps Strengthen Your Cardiovascular System
Sweat therapy has been scientifically proven to strengthen your heart. Sweating gives your cardiovascular system a workout because it increases blood flow, which requires your heart to pump faster and get stronger. Studies have shown that when patients with heart disease regularly use a sauna, they are much less likely to die from heart complications than those that don’t use a sauna. (8)
How Often Should I Sweat?
As long as you are healthy and stay hydrated, you can enjoy the benefits of sweating everyday! (7) The only problem is that many of us find sweating inconvenient. Sweat is sticky and smelly. Also, what if you don’t have time to drive to the gym and get sweaty? Then what?
This is where a personal sauna comes in. Again, saunas are nothing new. In 2,000 B.C., people in Northern Europe started creating heated bath houses so everyone in the community could enjoy the benefits of a good sweat. Fast forward to the present day, and this invention has been greatly improved upon in the form of personal saunas.
