Metabolism or metabolic rate is defined as the succession of chemical reactions in the human body that creates and breaks down energy necessary for life. More simply put, it's the rate at which the body expends energy or burns calories. Understanding your basal or resting metabolic rate (BMR or RMR) should always be a starting point for any effective weight management regimen. Your BMR or RMR is the amount of calories you burn in a 24-hour period just by being alive (zero activity level).
For most people, metabolism slows steadily as we age. Although you can't control your age, gender, or genetics, there are ways to improve your metabolism. Just like stepping up your workout or increasing your daily water intake (hydration), the succession of chemical reactions your body goes thru during and after a Cryotherapy session helps improve your metabolism. Although Cryotherapy is not a weight loss therapy, nor should it be considered one or a replacement to a weight loss program, it will compliment your weight loss regimen and help burn an additional 400-600 calories over the next 3-4 hours following each session.
INFLAMMATION AND PAIN MANAGEMENT (and impact on weight loss)
As we know, carrying extra weight (body fat) often translates to chronic inflammation in the body, which in turn, can trigger discomfort, aches and pain. Moreover, inflammation can also prevent proper weight loss because chronic inflammation impairs the brain’s ability to receive leptin’s appetite suppressing message.
The essence of Cryotherapy re-routs blood to the vital organs, where it is being naturally hyper-nourished, detoxified and oxygenated, so when you step away from your session, the rejuvenated blood rich in anti-inflammatory proteins in send back out throughout the body, which helps combat inflammation, allowing for more effective weight loss.
