Benefits of Cold Water Bath

October 6, 2022 - Parul Saini, Webmedy Team


Many people prefer to take a bath with hot water instead of cold water. But, do you know that bathing with cold water can be beneficial. Studies have shown that bathing in cold water can benefit mental and physical health.

Benefits of Cold Water Bath

There are many benefits of bathing in cold water, including improving blood circulation, reducing inflammation and helping to fight depression. Following are some of the possible benefits of bathing with cold water:

  • Improved Blood Circulation

    Taking a cold shower may feel painful, but it can also be refreshing. This is because the body has to work a little harder to maintain the body temperature. Taking cold water baths regularly can improve the effectiveness of the circulation system. Additionally, some claim that cold baths improve skin, possibly due to increased blood flow.

  • Improved Mental Health and Immunity

    Cold water stimulates the production of noradrenaline and beta-endorphins. When we take a cold shower, electrical impulses are sent from our nerves to our brain, which can have an anti-depressant effect on some individuals. Taking a cold shower can protect you from colds by boosting your immune system and making you more resistant to illness.

  • Resistance to Common Illnesses

    Our body is designed to be resistant to externally exposed elements. The shock of cold water into the bloodstream stimulates the leukocytes. This means that taking a cold shower can help boost your immunity against common illnesses like colds and flu.

  • Shiny Hair and Hydrated Skin

    When we take a hot shower, our pores open, but cold showers can temporarily tighten them and help you retain the natural oils in your skin and hair. Those prone to dry skin or concerned about dry, brittle hair might benfit from rinsing off with cold water.

  • Improved Metabolism

    Cold water causes your body's reaction to temporarily increase your metabolism. As your system fights to keep warm, it expends energy. This self-healing process burns extra calories.

  • Higher Level of Alertness

    Cold water wakes up your body, inducing a higher state of alertness. The cold also prompts you to take deeper breaths, lowers CO2 levels throughout your body, and helps you focus.

  • Reduced Pain

    Exposure to cold water can constrict blood vessels, which can help reduce any swelling that is causing pain.

  • Reduced Stress Levels

    Taking cold water baths regularly puts a small amount of stress on your body. This means that your nervous system gradually gets used to dealing with moderate levels of stress. This exercise helps you to keep a cool head in stressful situation.
