I came across one of NASA's latest training apparatuses (VASPER) -- designed to increase HGH production in the body for less intense workouts with greater results.... anyhow on one of their pages http://www.vasper.com/learn-more-about-vasper/core-cooling/ they state:
What is Core Cooling?
Core cooling reduces blood temperature. Cooler blood absorbs and retains more oxygen, resulting in extra fuel for a more efficient exercise protocol. The amount of lactic acid produced is closely related to the intensity of the exercise routine. Exercising at a cooler core body temperature allows for higher level of intensity during your exercise routine.
Got my to thinking.... I've heard of cooling vests before and that some MS patients get a little relief of symptoms from them... could it be because they allow the blood to store more oxygen and deliver it to the brain?
Anyone here use cooling vests?
