Taking a cold plunge in the ocean is something members part of the Polar Bear Club in Coney Island, Brooklyn do all year round but especially in the winter months when the water is at freezing temperatures. I, myself try to get into the ocean as much as possible throughout the year but I prefer my plunges in the summer.

The benefits of swimming in the ocean are plenty and one of the reason why I stay so healthy throughout the year. Natural sea salt water is above all else cleansing to the body and all our organs. It is healing to the skin by keeping it hydrated, salt water contains minerals and vitamins that produce antibodies for our immune system, and it helps with blood circulation..plenty of reasons to enjoy it all summer long; but for those who enjoy the freezing cold plunges in the winter have their reasons as well.

One reason is that the freezing cold temperatures help to activate brown fat in adult men. Brown fat is a heat-generating type of fat that burns energy instead of storing it, and this may have important implications when it comes to weight loss.These cold plunges have also been known to reduce muscle inflammation and pain and speed up recovery time after an injury. The exposure to the freezing temperatures can also help with stress and disease tolerance.(http://fitness.mercola.com/)

So whichever season you prefer for your plunge…there is no wrong turn when it comes to the ocean. Let me know in the comments how you take your dips!
