4 reasons to take a cold shower

June 1st, 2013 | No Comments

You should try it, really, it’s quite invigorating! Here’s why…

  1. Short term cold exposure leads to increased metabolic rate and increased use of fat as a fuel.
  1. Activate brown fat cells – these are the fat cells which burn other fat cells.
  1. Cold water improves your immunity.
  1. Depression – Studies have shown 2-3 minute showers at 20 degrees Celsius to be an effective treatment for depression.  I certainly feel alive after these cold showers!
