Study Shows That Frequent Sauna Can Protect Us From Dementia And Alzheimer's Diseases
It's not yet clear and in detail just how this may help the prevention, but a Finnish study submits that men who frequent saunas are little less more likely to be diagnosed with dementia later in life. The study tracked more than 2,000 middle-aged men living in the eastern part of Finland. Based on their sauna habits, they were divided into three groups: a group taking a sauna once a week, a group taking a sauna 2-3 times a week, and another group taking a sauna 4-7 times a week. You think it right, sauna is very popular in Finland.

Then, scientists from the Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease Risk Factor Study correlated dementia with the frequency of sauna visits. Of course, correlation does not imply causality, and this study didn't focus on the mechanism through which sauna might protect against dementia.
What they found amazed everyone, the more often men went to sauna, the less more likely was that they would develop dementia. The same was described for Alzheimer's. Among those group taking a sauna 4-7 times a week, the hazard of any form of dementia was 66% lower and the danger of Alzheimer's disease 65% lower than among those who took a sauna just once a week.
The same scholars had previously steered another study on the same data and found out that sauna bathing is also linked with lower risk of sudden cardiovascular attacks, the risk of death due to coronary artery failure and other cardiac events, as well as overall death. However, It's not yet clear at this point if the two studies are related and relevant in any way.
Professor Jari Laukkanen, leader of both studies, said: "Though, it is known that cardiovascular health disturbs the brain as well. The sense of well-being and easing experienced during sauna bathing may also play a big role."
