When the research concluded, results showed that cold temperature had significantly changed their bodies. The most surprising fact was that after sleeping in a temperature of 19°C, the volume of brown adipose in the young men had doubled.Their insulin sensitivity was better under the influence of change in sugar in the blood. One of the researches and a professor at the Virginia Commonwealth University, Francesco S. Celiclaims that although these were light changes, they are important.These are young and healthy men, but with the very fact of sleeping in a cold room they gained metabolic benefits in comparison to others. These benefits can decrease their risk of diabetes and other metabolic problems, in the long run.They lost several calories as well, during sleeping in a cold room (yet not so much that it would result in weight loss through those few months).The metabolic improvements were gone after sleeping in a temperature of 27°C, andin fact, they had even less than during the first scan.
The message of these researches, as said byCeli, is:
“In order to improve your metabolism, lower the temperature for a few degrees in your bedrooms. My room temperature, and also my office temperature have one more benefit- they shorten meetings. Obviously, lower temperatures of our surroundings enhance certain mechanisms for which there were not much writings or debates, until now.”
“Sleeping in a cold room or showering with cold water creates full increase of inner body temperature which contributes to the strengthening of the immune system and speeding of the metabolism, especially in the moments when we relax.” – He concluded.
