    Association Between Sauna Bathing and Fatal Cardiovascular and All-Cause Mortality Events

    This study concludes that use of the Sauna has an inverse relationship with all risk mortality. Key takeaways of the studies conclusions are as follows:

    – men that used the sauna 2-3 times per week had a 27% lower cardiovascular-related mortality than men that used the sauna 1 time per week

    – men that used the sauna 4-7 times per week had a 50% lower cardiovascular-related mortality than men that used the sauna one time per week.
    – confounding factors adjusted for: physical exercise, cholesterol, obesity, smoking, alcohol consumption, socioeconomic status.
    – cardiac-related death reductions shown in: coronary artery disease, sudden cardiac death and more.
    – sauna use improves heart health is by reducing blood pressure and incident hypertension, balances the autonomic nervous system, improves blood vessel function, decreases in arterial stiffness and compliance of arteries.
