WHY COLD EXPOSURE?
Cold compression therapy provides more pain relief than popular, alternative interventions. Remember - Cold does not heal injuries - its helps with the pain
Combats Oxidative Stress
Cryotherapy can enhance antioxidant status, allowing the body to deal with free radicals more effectively. Cold water also allows you to build up a higher stress tolerance.
Strengthens the Immune System
Participants of cold water immersion had increased levels of IL-6, CD3, CD4, CD8 and activated T and B lymphocytes, suggesting a more active immune system.
Strengthens the Nervous System
The increase in fat burning during cold exposure is modulated by the sympathetic nervous system.
Support & Speed up Recovery
The physiological effects of cold therapy include reductions in blood flow, swelling, inflammation, muscle spasm, and metabolic demand.
Aids Fat Burning
Exposure to cold temperatures leads to increased levels of adiponectin, a protein that increases fat burning. Low levels of adiponectin are associated with obesity.
