Far Infrared and Weight Loss
Far infrared heat therapy helps in raising metabolism, which will assist in burning calories. Using far infrared in a sauna room, metabolism can maintain an elevated rate for hours after your sauna session is complete. At 42 degrees Celsius, body fat becomes water soluble and the body will rid itself of fats, toxins and heavy metals such as lead, zinc, nickel and mercury through sweating. This can translate to a huge benefit of up to 800 calories burned from a single sauna session. When you sweat, it requires burning of 0.586 kcal for 1 g of sweat. Your body can safely burn up to 300 calories in just one 30-minute session with sweat loss equivalent to running 10-15km, about 8 to 9 miles.
