The benefits of an cold shower

We all don't like the cold but a cold shower will help your health. I like to try new things and I have been taken cold showers and feeling stronger and better. If you are not weak then follow my example (at your own risk!).

1) Cognitive Function

Regeneration of synapses and nerve cells that may help cognitive function and prevent degenerative brain disease.

2) Weight loss

Produce healthier and more efficient brown adipose tissue that can lead to weigh loss.

3) Inflammation

Reduces inflammation by affecting cytokine production and vase-constriction of blood vessels.

4) Immunity

Boosts immune system due to the production of lymphocytes that may help boost cognitive function and prevent brain disease.

5) Mood

Boost feel good hormones  like dopamine and nor-epinephrine so may help in depression

6) Stress Response

Cold exposure creates a positive stress on the body giving many benefits through "hormeis."

7) Studies show

Cold water immersion at 14 Celsius for one hour increased metabolic rate by 350%, nor-epinephrine by 530% and dopamine by 250%.

I don't know about you, this may the fountain of youth that you need.  You just need to get a tough mind then you will be well.
