At these temperatures your body drop from its normal 98 degrees down to about 30-50 degrees putting your body in a “fight or flight” mode. The fight or flight mode” increases blood flow through the body especially to major muscles groups; adrenaline is pumped into your blood stream giving you a natural energy boost. At this time your immune system kicks into high gear providing your body with everything you need to heal quicker and more effectively.
