Saunas: Reduce Risk Of Heart Disease & Alzheimer's

For over 100 Years, Finnleo have been making saunas and steam rooms and have grown to be the largest Sauna manufacturer in the world. They are renowned for their commitment to quality and for creating Saunas that are elegant in design and equipped with the best and safest technology available. 

Saunas not only feel great, they are amazing for your body, mind and soul. Below is a video featuring Dr. Rhonda Patrick and Dr. Jari Laukkanen, who are both well-respected professionals who have carried out extensive research on the health benefits of sauna use.

Dr. Laukkanen has published two studies through the University of Eastern Finland in which he has shown regular use of a traditional Finnish sauna can reduce the risk of both fatal heart disease,  Alzheimer's and dementia.

Whether a person's goals are to increase physical fitness and enhance a diet and exercise program, or if one simply wants to enjoy the benefits of a sauna as an addition to their current lifestyle, this video provides excellent data about how sauna use provides a mild cardiovascular workout while also helping the body release hormones to make a healthier, stronger, mind and body.


Some key points of the video include health benefits for:

  • Cardiovascular health
  • Alzheimer's prevention (65% reduction in onset of Alzheimer’s)
  • Physical fitness in relation to sauna use.
  • Release of endorphins and the associated stress reduction
  • Safe, rapid-acting antidepressant with sustained benefits
  • Dr. Laukkanen discusses how the sauna triggers multiple physiological and neurological mechanisms in the body to provide an array of benefits—proven by medical research‚Äč
