- Cold Water Effects your Digestion
One of the main reasons to avoid drinking chilled water is because it has a serious implication on your digestion. Chilled water as well as some cold beverages contract the blood vessels and also restrict digestion. The natural process of absorbing nutrients during digestion is hindered when you consume chilled water.
According to the Indian traditions of Ayurvedic medicine, cold water can cause an imbalance to the body and slow down the digestive process. The body has a core temperature of around 98.6°F and Ayurvedic practitioners reason that the body needs to expend additional energy to restore this temperature after drinking cold water.
2. decreases Heart Rate
According to medical researches, taking cold water decreases heart rate and stimulates the nerve which controls the involuntary functions of the body, this is known as the vagus nerve. The nerve is also an integral part of the nervous system. As the vagus nerve is directly affected by the low temperature of water, the heart rate eventually slows down, that is, as an emergency measure, your heart rate slows down until your body temperature reaches equilibrium once again. This is not too good for the heart as it can lead to other heart-related problems.
