Secrets To Beating The Cold ' Everybody Is Wearing Body Warmers - Articles Surfing
When you look in to the world of body warmers the first thing that becomes apparent is that there are a multitude of products made to warm the body, ranging from jackets through to foot warmers. Based on these findings the natural question would then be, what part of the body do you want to warm, and how do they work.
Air activated body warmers are often referred to as chemical warmers. When the chemical warmer comes into contact with the body a chemical reaction is set in motion and is responsible for creating the heat. Chemicals used in this type of body warmer are carbon, iron, water and salt, so they are in fact a natural solution for somebody that suffers from feeling the cold, or is venturing out into colder parts.
Those that ski, hunt, camp and hike as well as others that either live in cold areas or travel to cold areas commonly use warmers. Athletes also use body warmers.
When considering whether or not a foot warmer is something that you could benefit from, you would want to know whether the warmer is air activated and will it fit comfortably in your boot or shoe. It is worth noting that air activated body warmers have a limited life span so perhaps it may be best for you to consider a woollen or thermal alternative, depending on what it is you want it for.
The most popular form of clothing that is purchased for the sole purpose of ensuring body warmth is thermal clothing. It is essential for humans to maintain a core body temperature of approximately 37 degrees and for some, especially the elderly, wearing thermal underwear may be just what the doctor ordered for added body warmth.
Thermal clothing is readily available to warm all parts of the body. It is possible to buy thermal leg warmers, vests, socks, gloves and hats. Today the design and styles of thermal clothing are modern, and can be worn as an outer garment as well as under clothing. They come in a variety of colours and no longer look like the standard piece of thermal clothing from times gone by.
Many athletes wear specifically designed body warmers as a means to ensure that they do not injure themselves during strenuous exercise, because they assist in keeping the body at an even temperature during training. Many athletes have reported that during the warm up phase, the added warmth required to avoid muscle strain or injury is greatly reduced by wearing articles of clothing that aid in body warmth. Once training has finished and the body is cooling down, the same principle applies.
The human body has an amazing response to thermal strain and is controlled by the part of the brain known as the hypothalamus. If body temperature rises or falls then it is the hypothalamus that will correct the body temperature ensuring that it stays around the core rate of 37 degrees, but for some the benefits of body warmers can not be ignored.
