The Perks of a Cold Shower

pathmedical Self-Care

Just the sound of that can make some people shiver off their seats. But a shot of cold water can impart real health benefits.  If a person makes your shower go from hot to cold, they are doing a solid favor for your health and waistline. I invite you to consider these surprising benefits of cold showers!

Cold showers burn fat. When we consume more calories than our body needs to function, and we don’t burn those calories for energy, they are stored as white fat, which tends to accumulate at your waist, lower back, neck, and thighs. White fat is the body fat we all know and struggle to get rid of. The function of brown fat is to generate heat to keep your body warm but when brown fat is activated due to extreme cold, it burns calories to keep you warm, which could provide a helpful assist in your weight loss plan.

Cold showers boost recovery after exercise

After a good exercise end with a shower of cold water, that will leave you feeling invigorated and energized. Athletes often take ice baths after vigorous training do reduce soreness that helps their blood flow. Cold showers strengthen immunity and circulation. Cold showers also increase your overall blood circulation, which can help you avoid hypertension and the hardening of arteries. Good blood circulation is vital for overall cardiovascular health.

Cold showers increase mood and alertness

If you’d like to put some pep in your step first thing in the morning try taking a cold shower before you go to work. When cold water pours over your body, your breathing deepens in response to the shock of the cold. Your heart rate will also increase, resulting in a rush of blood through your body that will help you get energized for the day.

 Cold showers give you attractive hair and skin

Hot water dries out your skin and hair. If you want to avoid an irritating itch and ashy elbows, turn down the temperature of your showers. Cold water will close your cuticle, making it less likely dirt can accumulate in your scalp. You can also use cold showers for shinier, more attractive hair that your partner can’t resist playing with.
