Blood pressure levels are seen to reduce right after 30 minutes of sauna bath. Studies have shown higher level of measure or “Systolic” and the lower level of measure “Diastolic” reduced up to some extent. Sauna helps in decreasing the hardness of the arteries. The hardness occurs due to the accumulation of fats in the arteries making it narrower for the blood to flow, if the arteries become soft again, the passage of blood becomes normal.
As a matter of fact, we all know how beneficial it is to have a sauna bath. People with more weight or someone who is on the road to reduce weight find it a convenient option to get a sauna bath. Relaxation and decrease in stress levels are some of the other benefits you get with a sauna bath. It helps in increasing the body temperature and decreasing the blood pressure.
But, (there is always a but) you should always consult a doctor before and after a sauna bath. This is because high temperature lowers the BP, but once you come out of the sauna bath, the BP might rise more than normal therefore supervision is always advised.
