Increased Production of White Blood Cells with Saunas

Did you know that the heat generated by an infrared sauna can stimulate energy within the human body at a cellular level? Not only that, but it can also improve the natural production of white blood cells within the body. White blood cells are crucial when it comes to defending your body from infection and bacteria.

When a virus or bacteria enters your body, white blood cells can detect it and then work to control the response from your immune system.

By improving the natural production of these bacteria-fighting cells, you can further help to boost your immune system and keep yourself as healthy as possible.

Engaged Immune System

By raising the temperature of your body naturally within a Jacuzzi® Sauna using infrared heat, you can trigger the response of your body as it would to a fever. Fevers enable your body to fight off an infection by allowing various immune cells to work more efficiently.

By exposing your body to higher temperatures on a regular basis, you can provide these cells with the ability to destroy virus-infected cells and keep your immune system engaged.


One of the most notable benefits of using a sauna regularly is detoxification.

The infrared heat inside a Jacuzzi® Sauna can trigger a natural sweat, which can help to rid your body of toxins, chemicals and impurities.

These toxins can enter your body through the food you eat, air you breathe and anything else you may consume, such as water and other drinks. By flushing your body of these toxins naturally and regularly, you can support and aid your immune system.


Did you know that high stress levels can affect your immune system too? When your body is under stress, excess amounts of the hormone cortisol can be released, which can weaken your immune system and inhibit its ability to fight off harmful bacteria and viruses.

By using a sauna regularly, you can help your body to relax and balance cortisol levels, which will help your immune system to function properly, keeping you healthy and happy.
