Cold water has a host of benefits, it helps energize your system and gives it the strength you need to lead a healthy life.
Cold water helps improve lymphatic circulation
The lymphatic system is a network of vessels, that run throughout your body. These help take away waste, bacteria and microbes from your cells, which essentially lead to cleansing your body. Blood is pumped through the body by the heart, however, the lymph fluid does not have a central pump, it relies on muscle contraction to get around. When you do not exercise, your lymphatic system becomes slow, inefficient and toxins start building up, leading to development of colds, joint paint, infection and could even cause disease.
Cold water immersion leads to your lymph nodes contracting and forcing the lymphatic system to pump fluids through the body, which leads to flushing out waste from the area. This helps trigger the white blood cells, so that they can get in attack mode and destroy any unwanted substances in the fluid, which leads you to feeling happy and healthy.
Improvement of cardiovascular function
Cardiovascular circulation is a very critical part for overall health. With poor cardiovascular circulation, not only is blood flow compromised, but the heart gets stressed as well.
This then leads to headaches, fatigue, high blood pressure, muscle cramps, and even heart attacks and strokes. Improved circulation helps improve heart health, it helps improve mental performance and boost ones immune system and will give you more energy to live a healthy life.
While exercise and diet are great to improve cardiovascular circulation, cold water immersion can do wonders as well as it helps stimulate blood flow. When you immerse in cold water, the blood will rush around your vital organs, and this will force the heart to pump blood more efficiently, ensuring that blood reaches all the parts of your body, offering it all the nutrients and oxygen that it needs. If you do this on a daily basis, your body will receive all that it needs to stay healthy.
Cold water immersion also helps reduce muscle inflammation, it helps boost levels of happiness and also helps in your efforts towards weight loss.
