Heat therapy has been shown to lead to a 40% decrease in all-cause mortality by improving circulation and blood flow, and we’d all like to live longer wouldn’t we?
Research has shown that regularly taking a warm bath can help to lower blood pressure, reducing instances of serious heart conditions, such as heart attacks and strokes. Adding Magnesium salts to your bath improves heart health further by improving circulation and managing blood pressure.
How? By inducing heat and blood flow you’re essentially giving your heart a mini workout.
"We found that frequent tub bathing was significantly associated with a lower risk of hypertension, suggesting that a beneficial effect of tub bathing on risk of cardiovascular disease may be in part due to a reduced risk of developing hypertension," researchers found at the conclusion of a 20 year study. "It seems like tub bathing is similar to exercise in that it increases the heart's work, but it does so by relaxing the blood vessels and getting blood pumping to other parts of the body. So it creates this extra temporary work for the heart, but not one that's a negative consequence."
