Middle-aged men must consider having a steaming hot sauna bath to improve their health and prolong their life.
Scientists link sauna to prolonged life of middle-aged men by reducing the risk of heart attack up to 63 percent. A study conducted among 2,315 men aged 42 to 60 from eastern Finland supports this theory.
A surprising number of men who use sauna regularly have no or little trace of heart problems. Those who visit sauna four to seven times a week have the lowest percentage of cardiac death. Although researchers have not identified what is exactly causing the health boost, they believe that the relaxing environment in sauna rooms reduces stress and contributes to better health.
