7 Health Benefits Of Drinking Hot Water- Must Read

Drinking hot water offers a myriad of health benefits. Did you realize drinking hot water offers anti-aging benefits for your skin, helps ease pain and can be used a natural way to detoxify your body?

Here are 7 ways drinking hot water can improve your health:

1. Anti-aging for skin

When you drink water, we know that it is a natural way to remove toxins from your body which helps your skin to recuperate quicker. Dehydration is one of the most common reasons our skin loses elasticity. But, if you drink warm water, this helps your skin even more. Daily, your skin comes in contact with germs and free radicals. Drinking warmer water can help your skin’s cells repair quicker, in addition to improving your skin’s elasticity and appearance. I’m not sure about you, but I’m willing to drink some hot water over buying another anti-aging product. It’s less costly and effective!

2. Improves digestion

Mayo Clinic facilitated some research around the impact of drinking cold water after you eat a meal. They found that when a meal was consumed with cold water, the oils found in the food the participants digested hardened. This was relevant because this is one of the causes of intestinal cancer. But, when food was consumed with warmer water, this same reaction did not occur with the oils. The warm water was actually an aid in helping with the digestion and movement of the food through the system.

3. Relieves congestion

The worse part of a sore throat or nasal congestion is the pain associated with swallowing and the discomfort associated with feeling congested. Swallow something cold can make the process of staying hydrated difficult. However, for the most part when you drink something warm, it is more soothing. It’s not your imagination. Warmer water helps when your throat is sore or when you have coughing associated with your cold. Warmer water moves easier through your system and helps to alleviate some of the built up phlegm, helping you to recover from being sick a little bit quicker.

4. Body detoxification

Lots of time when you think of going through a detox you usually head to your local health food store to explore options and specific detox kits. But, drinking warm water is an alternative way to get that detox. According to the American Liver Foundation, your body temperature will rise and this will cause you to sweat, which is a sign that toxins are being eliminated from your body. All of this happens just with drinking warmer water.

5. Eases menstrual cramping

Being on my period is always tough because of the premenstrual symptoms that occur along with my menstrual cycle. But, what is even worse is the cramping I feel. I am always looking for natural remedies versus taking medication to soothe my cramps.

Here is how you can use something that has worked for me when I have my menstrual cycle. Instead of reaching for cold water, drink warmer water. It helps to loosen your abdominal muscles responsible for the cramping, decreasing your cramps and spasms.

6. Helps with constipation

If you are having some difficulty with being regular and are experiencing constipation, hot water can help with your digestion. Drinking warmer water helps with dehydration that causes your intestines to accumulate stools that back cause constipation. According to studies, which were done by the Digestive Disease Associates of York County, drinking warm water helps to make you regular. And here is another helpful hint. If you have not eaten yet and you drink warm water first before eating, it helps with getting rid of remnants of food that may be left in your system. This is another way to help you get your digestive process going in the right direction.

7. Stimulates hair growth

Dehydration and dry hair is often the culprit of breakage and an inability to get your hair to grow longer and healthier. By drinking warm water, you are helping your roots by giving them the hydration they need to be healthy. Warm water helps to activate your roots, decrease dehydration of your hair, which ends up helping your hair grow.

Now that you know the health benefits of drinking warm water, what’s stopping you? You have nothing to lose and so much to gain with regard to improving your health, alleviating pain, aiding your digestive system and helping to improve your skin. Drink up!
