Makers of the blanket claim it can help to detoxify the body, soothe sore muscles, help with sleep issues, lower cortisol levels, reduce inflammation, along with burning up to 600 calories per hour.
Dr. Travis Stork and Dr. Sonia Batra put the blanket to the test, and both of them found it extremely warm and they both broke a sweat while using it.
Dr. Travis, who is a big fan of saunas, liked it and calls it a “buzz,” but notes the claims the company is making are very lofty. Dr. Batra says she was not a fan, noting that the blanket costs $500 dollars and says she’ll leave the detoxifying to her liver and kidneys. It was a “bust” for her.
The Doctors recommend hydrating before suing this device or any type of sauna.
