Have you ever wonder what are the benefit of steam room you can get? I use steam room at least 2 – 3 times a week. But I never know the facts about steam room. Does it help me to loss weight? Does it raise metabolism or burn fat?, Does it help you get better skin?, Does it relieve pain and stressfulness? Does it make you sleep well? Only one thing I already knew.. it’s heat and foggy! So I did a small research and find out some truths about Steam room. Don’t believe what you’re gonna read. Try it yourself and come back to discuss with me 🙂
I’m not always right, people.
What is the steam room?
A steam room is an enclosed space with large amounts of high temperature steam, creating a high humidity environment. This is exactly I said, hot and foggy.
Steam room and weight loss
First thing you need to know about fist, weight is included fat, water, muscle tissue, bone and another organs. The weight you lose after using steam room is not fat but water. There’s another study steam room may help weight loss but it’s from increasing pulse rate in short period. It only heart muscle is working during using steam room. So if you think that’s gonna burn a lot of fat. The fact is pulse rate which increased during using steam room is Circulation which has nothing compare with running or walking on the treadmill, weight lifting or swimming. So steam room could be consider as one of weight loss factor but it does not help that much. If you weight right away after used steam room. You may see you lose weight a little bit. But that is just water. So don’t forget to drink enough water.
Steam room and metabolism
The high temperatures in steam room cause better blood flow and this also raises your heart rate and increase metabolism. But again there’s nothing compare to real exercise.
Tip: Switch to shower cold water and come back to steam room is good for circulation
