Reasons to take contrast showers

Very few things in life have so many benefits at almost no cost

Increases Energy and Alertness

Exposure to cold showers can increase the synaptic release of noradrenaline in the brain and levels of beta endorphins in the blood by activating the sympathetic nervous system.

Enhances Mood and Mental Fortitude

Cold receptors in the skin send overwhelming electrical impulses to the brain from peripheral nerve endings resulting for some in an anti-depressive effect.

Faster Workout Recovery

The temperature contrast creates a pump effect that flushes lactic acid in your body which builds up during exercise.

Improves Circulation

The hot water dilates blood vessels and increases circulation, while cold water constricts blood vessels decreasing blood flow.
