A boosted metabolism is just one of the many benefits of far infrared therapy.
When you use our far infrared bio mats, you may experience so many incredible benefits. From pain relief to stress reduction, our incredible products can leave you feeling truly wonderful. However, one of the least talked about and most exciting benefits of far infrared therapy is a boosted metabolism! Your metabolism is the process of converting the food and drinks that you consume into energy, and far infrared therapy can boost your metabolism in three main ways:
#1. Basal Metabolism
The basal metabolic rate is the number of calories your body needs to sustain itself while at rest. Far infrared therapy helps to boost the basal metabolism by putting stress on the body in the form of heat. Even though you aren’t physically doing anything while lying on a bio mat, your body is trying to cool itself off by sweating. This will increase your heart rate, burn more calories and increase your metabolic rate.
#2. Cellular Metabolism
Far infrared therapy helps to boost your metabolism on a cellular level as well. Far infrared therapy helps to increase blood flow, which in turn, increases the amount of oxygen that your cells and organs receive. This stimulates the production of more ATP, which is the molecule that is responsible for transporting chemical energy throughout your cells for metabolism.
#3. Metabolism Raised by Detoxification
Detoxification is another one of the benefits of far infrared therapy, and because the majority of toxins are stored in fatty tissue cells, sweating those toxins out can help to bring balance to your metabolism. This frees up carbs that your body has been storing so they can be converted into energy.
