10 Reasons Why Taking a Cold Shower

Taking a hot shower is a morning routine for many people. But did you know that a cold shower should also be added to your daily routine? Try to reduce the water temperature below 70 degrees Fahrenheit or 20 degrees Celsius. Although this may be uncomfortable at first, there are actually many health benefits backed by science. Below are 10 reasons why you should take a cold shower.

Boost Metabolism

White fat is the type of fat that we mostly associate with heart disease and obesity. However, we are born with brown fat, which is essential for overall health. Since brown fat can be activated by cold temperature, a cold shower can help ensure healthy brown fat levels, which also suggests a healthy level of white fat. Showering with cold water several times during the day may increase metabolism, which would help you lose weight over time. [1]
