What You Should Know
In order to lose weight quickly and easily many people, both professional athletes and average people alike, have tried sauna suits. A sauna suit is intended to work the same way as a real sauna works. When the body temperature is elevated, the body is said to react in two ways. First the body cools itself down by sweating and second the elevated temperature results in a raised metabolism and calorie burning. Additionally the sweating process is said to rid the body of dangerous toxins. This is how these suits work in theory, however, there may certainly be serious health risks associated with altering your body’s temperature too quickly, and losing too much body water too quickly can result in dehydration and fatigue.
Sauna suits are typically made of plastic, nylon or rubber.
One obvious benefit of using a sauna suit is that you see immediate results. Sauna suits can help you to lose water weight quickly, however, we do not recommend this since the weight will return once liquids are consumed. Typically, athletes looking to weigh in would use a device like the sauna suit, but not individuals looking to actually shed pounds.
- Sauna suits are available in many sizes.
- Used to promote sweating and calorie burning.

Sauna suits have been used for many years by professional athletes and exercise enthusiasts alike and may produce short term benefits such as ridding the body of dangerous toxins. The loss of water weight is usually temporary and once drinking liquids are resumed, the weight returns. The excessive use of sauna suits may result in dehydration, heat stroke, dizziness, weakness, muscle cramps and fainting. There is no evidence that suggests that wearing a sauna suit will increase the rate at which the body metabolizes body fat or that consumers can expect long term benefits from continued use. Sauna suits have a tendency to stick to the skin once sweating begins and may become uncomfortable for some individuals. Sauna suits are widely available and are offered through many online retail stores. Many local department stores and gyms may offer sauna suits as well. Most sauna suits are relatively inexpensive and are affordable for the average consumer.
