What is Infrared?
Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun's spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue to produce a host of health benefits. It is naturally occurring from the sun and is the basis for all Sunlighten™ saunas.
Unlike traditional saunas, infrared heat is effective at a more comfortable operating temperature than traditional saunas (100°-150°F for infrared vs. 200°F for a traditional sauna). By penetrating human tissue, infrared heat has been found seven times more effective than traditional saunas at detoxifying the body.
Because of the proven benefits of the full infrared spectrum of heat, Sunlighten has done extensive research to ultimately develop what became our Solocarbon® Full Spectrum saunas. This unique patented technology provides near, mid and far infrared at optimal wavelengths based on 56 clinical studies.
Solocarbon® Full Spectrum
Near infrared technology used in Sunlighten Infrared Saunas is similar to the infrared used in cosmetic and healing devices. The LED technology used allows the heaters to produce consistent near infrared without extreme heat or light, making it a safe option for near infrared use.
Because mid infrared wavelengths penetrate deeper into the body, they are beneficial for increasing circulation. So much so that mid infrared therapy mirrors the benefits of a passive cardiovascular workout! Regular mid infrared sauna therapy has been shown to significantly stimulate blood flow – its effects continuing on even after the sauna session is completed.
Because infrared sauna therapy heats the body directly rather than simply warming the air, it raises the core body temperature and produces a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where most toxins reside. Far infrared also aids in blood pressure reduction & weight loss, burning up to 600 calories in one 40 minute session!
Solocarbon Full Spectrum is an exclusive heating technology with proprietary blends of wavelengths that are fully customizable across the entire infrared spectrum to consistently deliver your desired health result.
Dedicated to offering the most effective wellness solutions available, Solocarbon® heating technology is the foundation for the Sunlighten saunas. It is 95% efficient and the only heater on the market clinically shown to raise core temperature, lower blood pressure and aid in weight loss.
Sunlighten has taken their proprietary heaters to the next level with Solocarbon® Full Spectrum. This unique patented technology provides near, mid and far infrared at optimal wavelengths based on 56 clinical studies. With high power infrared proven 99% effective across all wavelengths and advanced LED technology delivering true near infrared heat, Solocarbon® Full Spectrum can evolve with changing health needs over time.
