Main Benefits of a Cold Plunge Pool Immersion

When practised deliberately, ice plunge pool immersion has a variety of wellness advantages. Here are the some of health benefits of ice bath:

  • Mental Clarity & Resilience: When we feel stress, there’s an influx of norepinephrine, epinephrine, and dopamine in our brain and body, identical to the effects of deliberate cold exposure. It presents an opportunity to deliberately stress our body and learn to maintain mental clarity and stay calm, improving our mental resilience and acuity.
  • Metabolism & Weight Loss: When you immerse into an ice plunge pool, the cold converts white fat cells into metabolically active beige and brown fat cells. It boosts metabolism and calorie burn.
  • Anti-Inflammatory & Muscle Recovery: Deliberate cold exposure serves as a powerful anti-inflammatory tool post-exercise, with optimal results manifesting hours or even days after training.
  • Wakefulness & Alertness: Plunge pool effect includes elevating core body temperature, and as a result, enhancing wakefulness and alertness.
