Is the sauna good for weight loss?

Infrared saunas can help with weight loss because they can raise heart rate and metabolism, key fat-burning elements.

Sweating has not been established by the medical community as a core contributor to weight loss, but the good news is that sweating utilizes calories. There is more opportunity to burn fat the more you sweat.

How long should you stay in a sauna to lose weight?

An ideal session is 25-45 minutes to burn an adequate number of calories without experiencing dehydration and lightheadedness.
