This is perfect for cyclists because sleeping cool on a ChiliPad can optimize deep sleep, which is scientifically proven to enhance muscle recovery by as much as 30% and improve physical performance by as much as 9%. Muscle repair and growth during sleep occur due to the natural release of growth hormone during deep sleep.
In fact, 70% of the growth hormone release occurs during deep sleep, and the amount of growth hormone secreted correlates directly with the amount of deep sleep you get. Additionally, one study found that after cold exposure like sleeping on a cool ChiliPad, growth hormone secretion increased by over 450%.
Additional benefits include:
- Increasing metabolism by 10 percent
- Increasing melatonin production which provides regular menstrual cycles, enhanced mood, weight loss, cancer-fighting properties, increased brain health and anti-aging
- Reducing hot flashes by up to 85 percent
- Falling asleep easier
- Getting better quality sleep
- Decreasing risk of disease
