Today we’re going to talk about how cold-water immersion can greatly affect your genes in a positive way.
To experience these incredible benefits, you only need to do cold-water immersion therapy for eleven minutes per week.
You can get the advantages of cold-water immersion by using a special cold-water immersion tank, a cold shower, a cold pool, or a cold body of water.
While heat therapy is beneficial, cold therapy has even more benefits. If you have no tolerance for doing this, taking B vitamins may help make it easier.
Cold-water immersion can potentially help decrease:
• ApoA to ApoB ratios
• Homocysteine levels
• Oxidative stress
• ACTH and cortisol
• Uric acid
• Your risk for upper respiratory tract infections
• Muscle soreness
• Recovery time after exercise
• The growth of tumors
Cold-water immersion can potentially help increase:
• Thyroid stimulating hormone and T3
• T cells
• White blood cells
• Insulin sensitivity
• Mental resilience
Cold-water immersion also helps turn on certain genes that would otherwise be inhibited. These genes have amazing effects, like supporting metabolism and many other health benefits.
