A cold shower. An ice bath. A cold winter's day. All of those are invigorating as a result of cold thermogenesis.
Cold thermogenesis is the practice of exposing your body to cold temperatures for health benefits. The health benefits include increased metabolism and increased heart rate variability to name a few.
Specifically, cold thermogenesis provides cold exposure that will trigger the body to activate the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve supplies motor parasympathetic fibers to all the organs and controls a few skeletal muscles. It is responsible for such varied tasks as heart rate, gastrointestinal peristalsis, sweating, and quite a few muscle movements in the mouth. In response to the cold, sympathetic activity declines, while parasympathetic activity increases. There’s actually a physiologic change that occurs that increases testosterone, growth hormone, and metabolic efficiency.
Cold thermogenesis ignites your body’s natural healing powers. The practice provides long-lasting changes to the immune, lymphatic, circulatory, and digestive systems and generally enhances overall quality of life. You feel relaxed and refreshed. But who has the time for an ice bath? Or a cold shower at any time? Cooling Cuff solves that problem. Simply remove from freezer, wear, and practice cold thermogenesis. Pro tip: to amplify the cold thermogenesis, wear a Cooling Cuff during a cold shower :).
