Hey, guys! Are you fond of saunas? If so, how often do you visit?
We are asking because there’s a study that says research participants who frequently take sauna baths have a significantly lower stroke risk as compared to those who do it barely. The research, titled Sauna bathing reduces the risk of stroke in Finnish men and women: A prospective cohort study was published in a journal called Neurology. This 15-year follow-up study had a total of 1,628 adult participants without a known history of stroke and their ages ranged from 53 to 74.
Results revealed that participants of the study who take sauna baths four to seven days a week have 61 percent lower risk of experiencing stroke as opposed to those who only go once a week. On the other hand, those who do it twice or three times a week have a 14 percent lower stroke risk compared to those who take sauna baths just once a week.
It is said that previous studies have “linked sauna use to a reduced risk of high blood pressure, dementia, and death from cardiovascular disease.” Read more of this here. However, experts have cautioned people who “recently had a heart attack, those with unstable angina, and elderly people with low blood pressure” from going to saunas.
How do you differentiate a sauna from a steam room? Apparently the difference lies in the heat these two provide: it is said that the former provides dry heat while the latter provides moist heat but both offers health benefits which you can read here in detail.
Anyway, going back to the question at hand, how often do you visit gay sauna? Do you go there to hookup or do you go there to simply relax and unwind? Whatever your reason is, bathing in sauna comes with health benefits. That being said, would you care to share your first trip to one? How did your first gay sauna experience go?
