1. It can improve your metabolism.
Although cold showers alone cannot help improve your metabolism, however, with a change in a healthier overall life, it can certainly have benefits. Humans are born with what is called “brown fat”, which is actually healthy to have. With healthy levels of “brown fat” you can improve your “white fat” which is usually what causes health conditions such as heart diseases. Brown fat is activated with cold water.
2. It can improve circulation.
Athletes have been taking cold showers for years to help with injuries and faster healing. (To prevent injuries from happening frequently, remember to protect yourself with products such as Bear Grips products when working out!)The reason this works is because water that is at a temperature colder than our natural body temperature forces the body to work a bit harder to maintain its temperature. This causes the body to speed up the fresh and warm oxygenated blood. When taken regularly, this helps improve circulation.
3. It makes you more alert during the day.
Before heading to work or school, taking a cold shower can help you completely wake up and stay alert for the day ahead. A cold shower helps increase your heart rate, your blood pressure and your respiratory rate, which helps bring your body and mind to a state of alertness.
