The Science Behind Cold-exposure Based Calorie Burn
You don’t need to be a scientist to understand that too much cold exposure – such as, say, floating in the North Atlantic after the Titanic sank – can extract so many calories so quickly that it can kill you. On the other hand, mild cold exposure is perfectly healthy, and has been studied by scientists for decades as a way to burn calories. For example, Olympic swimmers burn many more calories per day than other Olympic athletes, and it has nothing to do with the exercise. It’s the water. They spend their day in water that’s 20 degrees (F) below their body temperature, and this temperature difference makes them burn way more calories than the exercise alone.

CryoMAX® “Points-of-Cold” Technology is the most advanced cold therapy available today – a patented, science-based system that utilizes non-toxic, latex-free materials and works for up to 4 hours at doctor-recommended therapeutic temperatures. This technology is EXCLUSIVE to COLD SHOULDER CALORIE BURING VESTS to assist you burn more calories!
CryoMAX® “Points of Cold” Technology is uniquely configured not as a solid block of frozen liquid, that others suggest using gloves to handle!!; but as small, rounded, frozen water-filled capsules arranged in rows and separated by space in which a non-toxic, non-freezing formula allows for body-conforming applications making COLD SHOULDER vests more comfortable to wear and efficient in creating mild cold exposure, known as THERMOGENESIS over longer periods, HELPING YOU SHED MORE CALORIES.
Unlike conventional cold packs used in other vest’s that act by freezing underlying tissue and blood vessels, CryoMAX® “Points of Cold” Technology absorbs body heat without interfering with the body’s natural processes.
Simply put, CryoMAX® “Points of Cold” is the most advanced cold therapy technology available today. That’s why COLD SHOULDER has formed an EXCLUSIVE partnership with the makers of CryoMAX gel ice systems, a patented product proudly made in the USA.
TRADITIONAL “SLAB” COLD PACKS USED BY COMPETITORS ARE HARD & UNCOMFORTABLE TO WEAR AGAINST YOUR BODY & JUST TRAP HEAT NEXT TO THE BODY, SHORTENING THEIR USEFULNESS FOR TRUE THERMOGENESIS, MILD COLD EXPOSURE. COLD SHOULDER also uses special materials to make our vest ice pockets more comfortable, and prolong the effective THERMOGENESIS process.
COLD SHOULDER’S CRYOMAX® “POINTS OF COLD” TECHNOLOGY DRAWS HEAT OUT OF THE BODY TO PROMOTE QUICK, NATURAL LONG TERM THERMOGENESIS – LASTING UP TO 4 HOURS
COLD SHOULDERS’S Exclusive CryoMAX® patented “Points-of-Cold” Technology distributes cooling evenly in rows of frozen liquid separated by non-freezing channels; placed in special pockets in the vest so heat is drawn out and away from the body as blood flows freely through area which is not frozen, the body responds by utilizing energy to maintain body temperature creating THERMOGENESIS.
