Buyer's Guides: HigherDose™ Sauna Blanket

How to choose an infrared sauna blanket

With a few different kinds on the market, how are you to choose just one infrared sauna blanket?

There are six (6) different factors to consider when buying one for yourself. These include: 

  • Price

  • Performance

  • Reputation

  • Safe (Low EMF)

  • Benefits

  • Heating Zones

Price of an Infrared Sauna Blanket

The average price of an infrared sauna blanket is $400, making it a wonderful option for a cost-conscious individual. Even the smallest stand-alone infrared sauna is upwards of $2,000.

Performance of an Infrared Sauna Blanket

Performance is always important- sauna blankets are no exception.

The average temperature range of an infrared sauna blanket is between 15 °C and 80° C. Make sure your sauna has the ability to at least reach 50°C. At these heat levels, infrared rays are able to penetrate your skin’s barriers properly.
The amount you use your sauna will also contribute to its performance. Aim to squeeze a session in 2x a week for 30 minutes at a time for optimal results.

 

Reputation

With so many brands and sellers on the web it’s important to research the brand and company the infrared sauna blanket comes from. Most companies offer a full manufacture warranty, extended warranties, damage coverage and repair services.

Low EMF

EMF or Electromagnetic Fields occur both naturally or through man made products. Cellphones, household gadgets, the sun, even the human body emits levels of EMF.

Many of these levels of EMF we experience in our day to day can safe to humans but high levels of EMF exposure can cause adverse health effects. Most sauna blankets advertise as emiting low EMF. Learn more: Safe +Toxic Free Sauna Blanket

 

What are the benefits of an infrared sauna blanket?

The benefits of an infrared sauna blanket are just as impressive as the benefits of a stand-alone sauna.

Wearing an infrared sauna blank for 15 minutes can:

  • Lower inflammation

  • Boost brain function

  • Improve blood circulation

  • Speed up your metabolism 

  • Strengthen skin health

  • Enhance sleep quality

  • Quicken healing times

Because an infrared sauna is able to heat your body faster than a traditional or steam sauna, the blanket version exhibits the same results.

One study from 2016 showed that 1-4 sessions a week can reduce a man’s chance of getting Alzheimer’s and Dementia by 65% and 66%, respectively. The cognitive benefits of a sauna blanket are significant.

Additionally, infrared therapy does a great job of dilating your blood vessels, allowing for more blood circulation and quicker healing properties. Stretching immediately after using the blanket will help with next-day muscle pain.

The most notable benefit of extra sweating from an infrared blanket is the dispelling of toxins like heavy metals and BPA (or bisphenol A). BPA is found in everyday plastic and is known to cause cancer.

Lastly, infrared exposure from a sauna blanket can increase the amount of REM sleep we get each night. Sleep deprivation can be severely detrimental. More quality sleep patterns will lead to improvements in all other areas of life.

Heating Zones of an Infrared Sauna Blanket

The more heating zones, the more independent control you have over your infrared sauna blanket.

The most intricate options come with 3 different Carbon fiber heating panels- an upper, middle, and lower zone. This gives you the ability to control the temperature of each area with the click of a button.
