Regular or occasional drinking of hot water can portray some benefits to the human health. It feels more refreshing to the mouth when thirst is finally quenched with a couple gulps of cold water but we should keep in mind that most times, that which would feel beautiful to the flesh and tongue may not feel the same to health.
Here are some medical conditions that may be prevented or can be improved by regular consumption of hot water
1. Accumulation of excess toxins
Toxins most times are expelled from the body through sweating. Taking water that is hot enough from time to time can cause sweat and this could serve as a medium to eradicate some toxins present in the body.
Bloating is a digestive disorder that most times would occur when consumed foods could not digest. Consuming hot water with foods can help make the digestion of such foods easier because hot water would lead to contraction of the bowels which enhances the movement of the digestive tract thus making digestion of foods easier.
Constipation is a condition affecting the intestines. It is characterized by hardening of the intestine with strong faeces as a result of chronic dehydration in most cases. Consumption of hot water can help soften it and at same time can help make the bowels contract to bring about defecation.
During cold weather, taking hot water can help heat up the temperature of the body.
5. Menstrual pains
Taking hot water helps dilate the blood vessels making the blood flow more smooth and easy, thus reducing cramps. Consumption of cold water during menstrual periods could possibly bring just the opposite of this effect.
Develop the habit of taking hot water today. Your body needs it more than it needs cold water.
