Live to 200?!? I couldn't believe it!
We all want to have a long life.
But to achieve double centuries like this, you’ll have to move to frigid waters of the Arctic.
And I don’t mean on the shore.
You see some of the oldest living creatures on earth, the Greenland Shark and the ocean quahog can cut through the centuries with such ease because of one thing — they live in cold water.
And apparently that might be the secret to growing really old — like over 200 years old.
But you don’t have to live under water to get these benefits… you can enjoy them right in your land-locked shower.
Studies have shown that exposing your body to cold water in short bursts may help improve your overall health, boost your immune system, and increase your tolerance to stress and/or disease.
In one study, participants who swam regularly in cold water during the winter experienced drastic decreases in uric acid levels. In higher concentrations, uric acid can increase your risk of diabetes, heart disease, fatty liver, obesity, high blood pressure and kidney disease.
In addition to reducing uric acid levels, the cold water exposure also boosted glutathione. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that can reduce premature aging and infections and combat the effects of stress.
Moreover, cold showers may also help you lose weight by activating your “good” fat.
There are two different types of fat, brown fat and white fat. Brown fat keeps you warm in colder weather, also acts more like a muscle because it burns energy, instead of storing it.
This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
Are we literally FEEDING cancer cells by putting this one food on our dinner plates?
This is important. THIS one food could be growing cancer cells.
And here’s where it gets interesting... as soon as we STOP eating it, the opposite happens: cancer cells STARVE to death -- and die out by the thousands.
Skeptical? See the evidence here.
White fat is the “bad” fat that accumulates around the waist, hips, neck and thighs when we eat a poor diet.
Brown fat is activated when the body is exposed to cold temperatures and can lead to the burning of white fat.
A study shows that exposing folks to extreme cold temperatures activates brown fat in some people by 15 fold. This means you could lose weight and burn that dangerous white fat by simply exposing yourself to cold temperatures — like taking cold showers.
If shivering through your whole shower doesn’t sound appealing to you, you can shorten the length. Some folk swear by taking a normal-temperature shower and then turning the temperature down to freezing for the last minute.
There’s no evidence that taking cold showers will make you live to be 200, but trying them certainly can’t hurt.
