Today, we’re going to talk about the surprising health benefits of cold therapy. Not only does cold therapy speed up weight loss, but it can also potentially help:
•Grow nerve cells
•Improve cognitive function (attention and mood)
•Speed up recovery time after exercise
•Increase diversity in your microbiome
•Decrease skin inflammation

Throughout history, humans have had to adapt to cold, harsh conditions to maintain a body temperature of 98.6 degrees. Cold therapy utilizes this temperature regulation mechanism to increase weight loss in a number of ways.

Cold therapy helps you tap into brown adipose tissue or brown fat. Brown fat is abundant in mitochondria and helps you burn glucose and white fat. Cold therapy signals the mitochondria in brown fat to make heat to warm your body. This can help you burn several hundred extra calories.

Cold therapy works to mobilize fat for energy, especially if you combine it with exercise. Cold therapy can also help increase insulin sensitivity.

Cold therapy increases mitochondrial biogenesis, the process in which your body makes more mitochondria. Mitochondria are the energy factories of the body and the heart of your metabolism. Cold therapy also increases mitochondrial autophagy—the recycling of damaged mitochondria.

Cold therapy increases adrenaline—a neurotransmitter that directly increases the release of fat from the fat cells. It increases thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and increases the conversion of the inactive thyroid hormone (T4) to the active form (T3).
