While many go to great lengths to avoid it, sweating actually has many important health- and beauty-related benefits. Your skin is the largest organ of your body, and serves important roles just like any other bodily organ. The fact is, sweating is one of the best ways to REMOVE TOXINS from our body and medical research can actually explain how this happens. We live in a world where industrial toxins have become so prevalent that NONE of us are free of exposure no matter how healthy we are! In fact, the umbilical cord blood of a newborn baby can be sampled and will reveal an average of over 200 synthetic chemicals..YUCK!
The many other benefits of sweating are listed below:
Maintain proper temperature and keep you from overheating
Clean the pores, which will help eliminate blackheads and acne
Improve skin tone
Sweat secretes an antibiotic-rich serum. This secretion is your body’s highly effective mechanism for killing off pathogens which might otherwise cause internal infection
Reduces the chance of getting kidney stones
Helps improve blood circulation
Kill viruses and bacteria that cannot survive in temperatures above 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit
Helps relieve stress and promote relaxation
Sweating can flush the body of substances of alcohol, cholesterol, and salt.
And lastly, of course, expel toxins, which supports proper immune function and helps prevent diseases related to toxic overload!
All of these benefits promote general health, and recent research has even shown that regular sauna use correlates to a reduced risk of death from any cause!!
