There’s nothing quite like the taste and feel of a nice cold glass of water. Or is there?
Well, maybe not in terms of refreshment, but there are multiple health benefits of making warm water part of your daily diet. Let’s examine a few of them.
Aid to Digestion
Start your day with a very warm cup of water and to flush out built-up toxins. Water, warm or cold, will break down food in your stomach, but warm water works faster for greater ease of digestion.
Relief from Constipation
Constipation is caused by a lack of water and, once again, warm water works better than cold to more quickly break down foods inside your stomach.
Warm water, considered to be nature’s most powerful home remedy, can help alleviate pain from menstruation to headaches. Warm water has a calming effect on abdominal muscles, plus it increases blood flow to the skin to help relax muscle cramps.
Warm water increases body temperature, which in turn increases the rate of metabolism. In the process, your body will burn more calories than normal while enabling improved gastrointestinal tract and kidney function.
Improved Blood Circulation
Bodily fat deposits along with deposits in the nervous system are purged by warm water. The fewer the deposits, the better your blood circulation.
Halts Premature Aging
The presence of bodily toxins causes us to age faster, but the process can be slowed via a steady consumption of warm water.
If you can’t get past the taste factor, try drinking your morning ration of warm water with a slice of lemon. But don’t let the water get too warm; otherwise, you can suffer tissue damage in your mouth and esophagus. In fact, play it extra safe by consulting with your doctor before launching into warm water consumption.
