Here are the many ice bath benefits (including weight loss) that will make an ice bath a great addition to your healthy lifestyle

Ice Baths And Weight Loss

There is increasing evidence that shows one of the many ice bath benefits is weight loss. How ice baths and weight loss works is that cold therapy can increase brown fat levels (or convert white fat cells to brown fat cells) in your body. Brown fat activates right before you start to shiver and helps to regulate your body’s temperature – keeping you warm when you’re exposed to cold conditions. Brown fat can burn calories and increases energy expenditure which is why ice baths can benefit weight loss as well as metabolic health.

In addition to ice baths benefiting weight loss, there are many other benefits too, making them an ideal choice for your overall health & wellbeing. Some of these benefits include:

  • Increasing the level of neurotransmitters like norepinephrine and serotonin can lift your mood
  • Training your brain to have a higher tolerance to stressors enables you to deal with stressful situations better (this can also help to improve sleep too)
  • Decrease the production of inflammatory cytokines which are linked to anxiety and depression
  • Reduction in inflammation
  • Relief for sore muscles and aiding post-exercise recovery
  • Boosting your immune system

How To Use Ice Baths For Weight Loss

Studies show that using ice baths regularly encourages the activation of brown fat in your body each time. Everyone responds differently to ice baths and exposure to cold and there can be other contributing factors that can impact effectiveness too.

When using ice baths for weight loss there is not necessarily any set or recommended duration, frequency or time that is best – we recommend monitoring your progress to determine what works best for you. Our team will also guide you on how best to incorporate ice baths into your lifestyle.

As always, we also recommend speaking to your health professionals if you have any existing health conditions or concerns and of course, you need to ensure you use your ice bath safely and wisely.
