Heat Holders® has perfectly designed warmth-focused products to keep you, your family, your loved ones, and your pets wonderfully warm this winter. 

Warmth Facts (With Science)

Did you know women generally feel colder than men? That's because women have a higher percentage of body fat around their core to keep vital organs warm but that means women's hands and feet feel colder, and when their hands and feet feel cold, the rest of the body does too. 

Symptoms of cold from outdoor winter conditions can negatively impact your physical and cognitive capabilities. When cold, the human body restricts blood vessels in order to conserve body heat and this can impact the way we think and act. But, if you're wanting to go out, don't let the cold stop you. Just make sure to layer up with the best heat-holding gear from Heat Holders®. 

Keep The Heat Indoors

Slipper Socks are a great way to keep your toes warm around the home especially while walking on colder surfaces such as kitchen tiles and wood. Slipper Socks also have grip technology on the soles, adding an extra safety feature to support the elders. Heat Holders® also offers loungewear and base layers you can wear around the house to say toasty warm!

Do you have a favorite holiday movie? 

Whether it's a Christmas classic like “The Grinch” or a comedy like “Elf”, gather your favorite movie-watchers and treat yourselves to a cozy movie-marathon. Heat Holders ® famous Oversized Blankets and Throws are the perfect partner to your snuggle session providing ample room for endless cuddles and laughter all night long. Don’t forget to grab a Pet Blanket for your furry friends to join in on the holiday evening!

How about a bath?

You can warm yourself up by soaking in the tub not to mention letting the water wash away stress and worry! Your core temperature rises when you take a hot bath or spend time in the sauna, so go spa for warmth! And when you step out, keep that warm feeling by slipping into the soft comfort of a Heat Holders® bathrobe!

Munch Your Way to Warmth

Plenty of foods can make your body temperature go up such as spicy foods like red peppers, especially if you don't normally eat them.

While our body digests food, it naturally produces increased heat, and doubly so while breaking down fatty foods for fuel such as avocados, nuts, or oily fish. If you want to stay warm, properly fueling your body’s inner furnace with nourishing foods is a great way to fend off the cold from the inside out. 

Sipping on a warm tea or hot chocolate may make you feel warmer too, however not for too long. Consuming hot liquids won't necessarily make our internal body temperature rise but simply holding a warm mug of tea or soup may help trick your body into feeling warmer too.

How are your baking skills?

Did you know that ginger has been used for centuries to help raise body temperatures? According to research, the polyphenol component in ginger (aka gingerols) are responsible for triggering a small increase of adrenaline when consumed. This also happens when the component capsaicin found in hot peppers is consumed too. 

Bonus Tip: Try to boost your way to warmth by drinking a warm ginger tea, sprinkled with cayenne pepper on top. Make sure it's not too hot to sip and enjoy it’s naturally warming effects!

Warm the human, not the home!
