I saw a documentary about it and read some studies on it that say it's effective, only needs to be done once a week, for 3 minutes, but has anyone here tried it? How long did it take?

I like cold water swimming
It’s really refreshing, gets blood circulating and is great for a mood boost

How quickly did it work? :)
Well, since it’s not something I did everyday, I don’t really know. I’m just one of these people who enjoys swimming in cold water. I’m in the ocean in May when it’s probably less than 60 degrees. Cold showers would probably work best for consistency.
