Acclimatization of workers and athletes to heat allows for better performance and protects against heat injury!

Physiological Advantages of Acclimatization┬╣:

  • Increases plasma volume by up to 25%
  • Reduces sodium lost in sweat by 50%
  • Increases sweat rate
  • Initiates sweat onset earlier
  • Redistributes blood to the periphery more efficiently
  • Produces heat shock proteins
