10 surprising health benefits of cold weather

  • "Our bodies use a considerable amount of energy to keep us warm, and humidify the air we breathe when we're out in the cold," explains Stacy Tucker, RN, natural health expert, founder of Almeda Labs.
  • Well, you might notice your joints feeling less swollen or puffy in winter, because the cold air acts like a natural ice pack to decrease inflammation, explains Tucker.
  • Your body's core temp naturally drops when you're trying to sleep; this process can take up to two hours in the heat of summer but is much faster in winter, says Tucker.
  • Cold weather makes working out a fun and challenging activity, and the heart will have to pump more oxygenated blood to not only compensate for the activity but also to ensure that the body maintains a warm enough temperature to stay within balance and to avoid any risks from a drop in temperature.
