A new study has discovered a simple way to greatly reduce your chances of dying of a heart attack.

You don’t have to change your diet.

You don’t have to exercise more.

Nor do you have to take any drugs or supplements.

To reduce your heart mortality risk by nearly 400%, all you have to do is engage in one pleasant, relaxing activity.

Researchers at the University of Eastern Finland and the University of Jyvaskyla in Finland found that people who regularly take saunas have a dramatically lower risk of dying from heart disease.1

Scientists collected data from 1,688 people starting in 1998 and lasting through 2015. They recorded participants’ sauna use and kept track of their medical records and deaths.

Researchers discovered that heart deaths were directly correlated with sauna use. People who used a sauna four to seven times a week had a 374% lower risk of dying from heart disease than people who seldom took a sauna.

Compare that to statin drugs. They are mainstream medicine’s most popular way to fend off heart disease.

The true value of these drugs is highly dubious. And even the strongest supporters of statins don’t claim they cut heart disease risk as much as saunas do. What’s more, statins come with all kinds of side effects.2

How do saunas help your heart?

Professor Jari Laukkanen was an author of the study. “There are several possible reasons why sauna use may decrease the risk of death due to cardiovascular disease,” he says. “Our research team has shown that high sauna use is associated with lower blood pressure.”

And sauna use is known to trigger an increase in heart rate equal to low-to-moderate intensity exercise.

The Sauna Heart-Disease Solution

If you have access to a sauna, try to use it at least four times a week. If you don’t, studies show that you can get similar benefits using other techniques to raise your body temperature. They include using a steam room, Jacuzzi, or even just a hot bath.3 4

One more thing…

You may have seen spas that advertise “infrared” saunas. This type of sauna uses light to heat your body without heating the air around you. Preliminary studies show infrared saunas have similar benefits to those of traditional saunas.5

Editor’s Note: If you’re concerned about heart health, there are tests you can request at your next doctor’s visit.

But we’re not talking about blood pressure readings… About half of them are wrong.
