Hot Baths for Metabolic Health
Aging doesn't have to mean slowing down. In fact, the golden years can be an optimal time to fine-tune your lifestyle and habits for optimal health. One surprising avenue for achieving this is through something as simple and pleasurable as a bath. Recent research indicates that a hot bath may simulate the metabolic effects of exercise, making it an excellent option for those over 55. In this article, we will explore how bathing can act as a form of 'exercise' and how Bathing Evolved's unique bath products can further enhance these effects.
Thermogenesis in a Bath
To understand this phenomenon, let's first explore the process of thermogenesis. This is the metabolic process by which your body burns calories to produce heat, and it's a key aspect of both exercise and warm bathing. When you exercise, your body's temperature rises, leading to increased calorie burning. The same is true when you soak in a hot bath. Heat exposure during a bath, similar to a moderate workout, leads to an increase in heart rate, blood flow, and metabolic rate.
Burn as Many Calories as a 30 Minute Walk
So, how does bathing stack up against a brisk walk or a light jog? In a study published in the journal Temperature, it was found that an hour of soaking in a hot bath could burn as many calories as a 30-minute walk. This passive heating, as the researchers called it, has the potential to contribute significantly to an individual's health regimen, particularly for those 55 and older, who may face physical limitations that make traditional exercise more challenging.
All Natural Bath Soaks Which Contribute To Metabolic Health
Enter Bathing Evolved: our range of products is designed to amplify these health benefits, turning a simple bath into a therapeutic ritual. With a blend of all-natural ingredients, each Bathing Evolved product enhances the effects of thermogenesis, contributing to improved overall health and well-being.
Activated Magnesium for 55 and Over
Take, for instance, our Renewal Bath Soak, fortified with magnesium chloride hexahydrate. This potent form of magnesium, absorbed easily through the skin during a bath, plays a critical role in the process of energy production in our bodies. As a cofactor in more than 300 enzyme systems, magnesium supports a range of biochemical reactions, including protein synthesis and muscle and nerve function, making it a key player in metabolic health. Coupled with fat soluble Vitamin B-1 Benfotiamine, Bathing Evolved can potently repair a metabolism and amplify the effects of thermogenesis. We call this combination of magnesium and fat soluble B-1 activated magnesium for your body activates more of the potential benefits of magnesium as a result.
Couple this with the relaxing and stress-relieving properties of a warm bath, and you have a recipe for a healthy, rejuvenating experience. Stress, particularly chronic stress, can wreak havoc on our metabolic health. By providing a means to unwind and relax, a Bathing Evolved bath can help reset your stress response, contributing to better metabolic health in the long run.
