In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Connie Zack, founder of infrared sauna company, Sunlighten, joins the show to talk about the many benefits of infrared light. This technology has incredible impacts on your longevity and recovery, and I want to make sure you learn as much as possible about it.
Traditional steam and heat-based saunas warm you by heating the air and in turn, heating your body. Infrared saunas work by delivering heat directly to your body through wavelengths that are curated to easily access and transform the body. Even the sweat produced between the two is different!
Different parts of the infrared light spectrum have unique benefits in serving our bodies. Near, mid and far-Infrared each offer different benefits, such as improving cell health, quickening muscle recovery, reducing inflammation, lowering blood pressure and more.
“There's been studies showing that infrared can help reduce colds, flus,” Connie says. “The increase in core temperature helps with the antiviral effect as far as activating heat shock proteins and kind of helping to prepare the body to be stronger.”
Other studies have shown a connection between core temperature and reduction of depression or major depression symptoms.
“So with infrared, if you can get the maximum heat and you've mastered the wavelength, then you can get it all into your body to change and transform your body,” Connie says.
Every part of a Sunlighten sauna is intentional–from the type of wood they use (yes, wood can have a chemical reaction to heat) to the construction of the sauna itself.
“This is all about living the world a healthier place as a result of what we're doing every day,” Connie says. “And we want to do it to the maximum.”
