Levels of Uric Acid and Glutathione During Brief Exposure Whole Body Cold exposure
The study looked at ten healthy people who regularly swim in ice-cold water during the winter. They were tested before and after being exposed to the cold. The researchers found that the participants had much lower levels of uric acid during and after the exposure to the cold
Cold water swimming, also known as winter swimming or ice swimming, is becoming more popular as a special form of endurance sport. It involves swimming in cold to ice-cold water, mainly during winter or in colder regions.
Cold exposure protects from neuroinflammation through immunologic reprogramming
This study shows that cold exposure reduces the symptoms of autoimmune disease by suppressing T cell activity through the modulation of monocytes. The study suggests that cold-induced metabolic adaptations may compete with autoimmunity as an energetic trade-off that can benefit immune-mediated diseases.
