Wearing a sauna suit can help with weight loss, according to new research.
We’ve recently reported on study findings that those who frequently take sauna sessions have lower incidence of heart disease, pneumonia-related lung infection, and Alzheimer’s dementia. But that usually involves sitting. What about wearing your sauna around as a suit?
A new study finds this may also have benefits. The study conducted by Lance Dalleck of Western State Colorado University found that wearing a “sauna suit” made by Kutting Weight helped subjects obtain their fitness goals by increasing their metabolism and burning more calories.
In November 2015 Dalleck and a team performed the study using Kutting Weight sauna suit clothing to determine the fitness benefits, if any, of wearing the sauna suit.
According to a media release, the researchers found that subjects wearing the suit burned up to 13% more calories than a control group. They also said that wearing the suit while exercising increased metabolism by 20.8% and weight loss by 40.4%. Interestingly, they also found sustained increases in metabolism: “after subjects removed the sauna suit, their bodies continued to burn up to 22% more calories and fat for hours.”
“The most important finding of this study is that it provides scientific evidence to support the notion that exercise with the Kutting Weight® sauna suit clothing contributes to a significantly increased metabolism (20.8%) and facilitates greater weight loss (40.4%) when compared to exercise performed under similar conditions with no sauna suit clothing.”
Kutting Weight sauna suit clothing purports to safely increase a wearer’s core body temperature. According to the release:
“In response, his or her body will begin to work harder, using more calories to regulate and control the internal temperature. A higher metabolic rate and greater work demand placed on the body mean an excellent and proven way to safely and effectively shed body fat.”
