Are you given to taking cold water and find it irresistible? Think over it again. Beginning your day drinking it may not be a great idea for your health.
Taking warm water, especially in the morning, can heal our bodies while improving digestive power and reducing metabolic waste that could have built up in our immune system, according to Ayurved.
Here are five advantages of drinking warm water:
- Halts Premature Aging
Premature aging can be prevented by drinking warm water. The presence of toxins in the body can lead to aging faster, but warm water can help cleanse the body from those toxins while repairing skin cells to increase elasticity.
To reap the health benefits of warm water, drink it every morning plain or with a lemon for taste. Also, check with your prescribing physician before drinking warm water if you’re on any medications that could impact the efficacy of your medications.
- Cleanses Digestion
A glass of warm water in the morning can help cleanse your body by flushing out toxins. Warm water helps in breaking down the food in your stomach and keeps the digestive system on track. Warm water will help break down the food even faster, making easier to digest. Drinking cold water after or during a meal can harden the oil in consumed foods and therefore create a fat deposit in the intestine. After taking a meal replace a glass of cold water with a warm one to aid digestion.
- Helps During Constipation
Most of us are plagued by this common stomach problem where we have little to no bowel movement. Drinking warm water in the morning on an empty stomach can help in improving bowel movements and aid constipation while breaking down food as it smoothly passes through the intestines.
- Sheds Excess Pounds
Warm water increases body temperature, which therefore increases the metabolic rate. An increase in metabolic rate allows the body to burn more calories. It can also help the gastrointestinal tract and kidneys to function even better.
- Improves Blood Circulation
When you drink a glass of warm water, the fat deposits in the body are eliminated along with accumulating deposits in the nervous system. Intake of warm water flushes out the toxins that are circulating throughout the body and then enhances blood circulation.
