Did you know that Whole Body Cryotherapy reduces weight?
Here’s some common sense:
When we are cold, and our core body temperature drops below a certain degree, and we may experience the jitters or shaking, also known as oscillatory muscular activity. Well, these oscillatory muscles – when they shake, are also vibrating. Whole body vibration exercises have shown to increase muscular strength and performance.
Cryotherapy has been shown to reduce weight without shivering due to the icy nitrogen gas, which is in sub-zero temperatures – around -250° F. This method penetrates deeper through the layers of the human body, rather than the “surface” cold that would make us shiver at 50° F.
Cryotherapy Reduces Inflammation
The problem with chronic inflammation is that it impairs the brain’s ability to receive leptin’s appetite suppressing message. The good news is that by treating yourself to cryotherapy, you reduce inflammation which will not only improve your health, it will improve your body’s responsiveness to leptin. When your body is properly set up to respond to leptin, you reduce inflammation, which makes it far easier to take off extra pounds. Cryotherapy reduces inflammation, and also how the power to penetrate deeper, so that fat loss is more than likely to occur.
Also, doctors use cold exposure with patients to increase leptin sensitivity. There is some solid research behind cold exposure that suggests it can improve thyroid function, reduce fat loss, and increase overall resilience.
A study in rats found that cold exposure revamped thyroid function and increased BAT oxygen consumption by 450%. Researchers reported in the Journal of Clinical Investigation found that cold exposure in humans can increase energy expenditure, and may assist in fat loss. A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that adult humans have more brown adipose tissue (BAT) than previously thought and can significantly increase energy expenditure in response to cold.
