Is Cold Weather Good For You?

November 20, 2014

  • Could lead to longer life, burning fat and reduced inflammation
  • UK set to experience cold snap after recent now blitz in New York

A recent report has indicated that exposure to the cold weather may be good for your health. Studies have shown that temporary exposure to the cold can help you to lose weight, triggering the body to work harder to maintain the body’s core temperature.

Researchers at the University of Michigan conducted a series of tests using the everyday garden worm and found that those exposed to cold temperatures showed a change within their genetic makeup that triggers longer life spans.

Shawn Xu, the study’s author commented, “It’s too early to say, but it is possible our research applies to humans, because the genetic pathway we identified is found in people.” Latest weather reports have indicated that the UK is set to experience a cold snap this winter with temperatures set to plummet to -7°C. FORZA’s personal trainer to the stars, Ian Guildford who has whipped the likes of Luisa Zissman and Casey Batchelor into shape stated, “Whilst most of us do not like the cold, it can provide a good motivation for keeping fit.” “Many of my clients state they prefer working out in the cold, as it makes them work harder to bring their core temperature above that of the environment”.

Whilst the cold may provide some health benefits, it is recommended that caution is given to too much exposure and avoid other health issues associated with the cold including hypothermia and the common cold.
