40% Decrease in All Cause Mortality with Frequent Sauna Use

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Let me repeat the headline:

There is a 40% decrease in ALL CAUSE MORTALITY for men who use the sauna 5-7 times per week.

Must be over 174 degrees Fahrenheit for roughly 20-30 minutes per session.

I’ve been obsessed with sauna use (wet or dry, not steam rooms) since I was introduced to a Turkish bathhouse in Chicago called Red Square about four years ago.

Shortly after going to the sauna regularly and feeling amazing, I stumbled on Dr. Rhonda Patrick (via JRE, of course), and thankfully she is also fascinated by the health benefits of sauna use.

The above clip is a little older but summarizes some of the wonderful benefits, but for those who are interested in taking a deep dive, check out the below study from the Mayo Clinic (!!!).
