Cold water immersion (CWI) exposes your body to extreme coldness. It's a huge stressor that the body is not familiar with.

But as you build tolerance, and your breathing calms, your doorway into the mental and physical benefits begins to open.

When you feel sore a couple of days after a solid workout or intense physical activity, that is known as DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness).

By exposing your body to cold stressors such as an ice bath you trigger a response within your body (controlled hypoxia) that has been shown to increase the body's immune tolerance and regulate any chronic inflammatory-related conditions. This results in a heightened immune system and increases your resistance to illness. Cold water also obviously exposes you to a cold environment which allows your body to work harder to maintain homeostasis while maintaining its core temperature, this again results in a stronger immune system response when you start running down with a cold.

Ice Baths make your body work hard to keep you warm and burn calories. They also influence the fat type your body produces – brown fat.

While cold therapy is no substitute for regular exercise and a healthy diet, it's an excellent supplement.
