Everybody knows that drinking water is good for their health, but most of them don’t know that the temperature of the water that you drink matters the most.
There is a debate among the medical and health circles as to which : hot (warm) or cold water is better to drink? The answer is opposite to what most of the people usually practice in their daily routine.
Drinking hot water early in the morning on an empty stomach is better than drinking cold water.
Although drinking cold water will satisfy you more, your body will have to spend extra energy to bring the temperature of the cold water to the temperature of its surroundings.
Drinking a warm water (a cup) 1st thing in the morning is more beneficial to our health and it encourages proper hydration and good health all day long.
These are just several benefits of drinking warm water first thing in the morning:
Sounds amazing but only a glass of warm water could be enough to soothe headaches or some other pain in the body. The heat will improve the capillary circulation thereby relaxing the nerves and muscles in our bodies and minimizing stress and tension.
Our bodies can be really sore and stiff in the morning because of slowed circulation and decreased heart rate. A cup of warm water, immediately improves the blood circulation throughout the whole body.
One of the reasons why we age is due to damage of the cells from the entered toxins in our body from the environment and food that surrounds us. The warm water will flush the toxins from our bodies by purging the debris and relaxing the tight internal pores that may otherwise remain trapped.
The extra hydration that the warm water provides, will also rejuvenate your skin and make it more elastic and healthy.
The cold water slows the heart rate and lowers the temperature of the body, opposite to that, the hot water will actually accelerate your metabolism and it will jumpstart weight loss with fast caloric turn over.
Plus, the kidneys will benefit from the warm water in the morning and they will function better to help the body to regulate the blood sugar levels, preventing the occurrence of the need for junk food and sweets which is the biggest threat in the battle to manage weight.
