Cold Plunge Tubs utilize a cooling system, similar to a refrigerator, to maintain the set temperature. Many models also have insulation and covers to retain the cold, ensuring energy efficiency.

Are there scientific studies supporting the benefits of cold plunges?

Absolutely. Studies, as cited by Dr. Huberman, have shown cold exposure to aid in muscle recovery, reduce inflammation, enhance mood, and improve alertness. Regular cold plunges can have both physical and mental benefits.

How long should my cold plunge sessions be? 

For beginners, sessions should start at 1-3 minutes. As you become acclimated, you can increase the duration. However, always listen to your body and limit sessions to a maximum of 15 minutes.

A standard cold plunge ranges from 40-49°F (4.5-9.5°C). However, personal preference plays a role. Beginners should start with milder temperatures, gradually adjusting as they become more accustomed.
