Men who had two to three sauna sessions weekly over a 25-year period were 24% less likely to have high blood pressure than whose who had one or no weekly sauna visits
Men who went to a sauna four to seven times a week had a 46% lower risk for high blood pressure.
The study did not prove cause and effect, but researchers said sauna warmth may improve blood-vessel flexibility, and the warmth and cool down in a Finnish sauna may lead to general relaxation that lowers blood pressure.
