Increased Fat Burning
The idea behind cryotherapy and increased fat burning is simple; the body responds to extreme cold by increasing your metabolism to heat up your body, which in turn burns fat through a process called cold thermogenesis. Cryotherapy can increase your metabolism rate up to 350%.
Long term mild cold exposure can also increase brown adipose tissue (BAT), a type of fat that is beneficial. Unlike other types of fat, brown fat increases metabolism, burning energy, and glucose to generate heat. More calories are burning in three minutes of Cryotherapy session than in a one hour run.
