We all know that drinking water is the healthiest option out there, but do we drink enough of it to do us any good?
Did you know that drinking the right amount of water each day can help support your muscle, skin, and joint health? Water helps your body absorb nutrients and fight infection.
What if we told you that there are even more benefits to drinking warm/hot water too? There are in fact 8 great benefits to popping on the kettle and we are more than happy to share them with you.
Keeping You Hydrated
When it comes to water, we have all been told how much to drink. However, everyone is different, different in age, weight, and height so the amount of water should also vary.
The truth is that too much or too little water can be harmful to you and your body. So, we have found a nice and easy way of finding out just how much cold/warm/hot water you should be drinking per day to stay hydrated thanks to those at Healthline.
Example: Take your weight and half the number to get the number of ounces you should drink.
If you weigh 180 pounds, then you should be drinking 90 ounces of water split up whichever way you like over the day.
Improves Blood Circulation
Drinking hot water or indeed having a warm bath can help with blood circulation. Hot water helps expand your blood vessels and improve circulation. In turn, this can help relax your muscles and reduce pain.
Improves Central Nervous System Function
Drinking cold and/or hot water can help improve your central nervous system as well as your mood. Drinking water helps with brain activity and anxiety.
Decrease Stress Levels
A study carried out in 2014 found that those who drank less water felt less calm and not as satisfied. This means keeping yourself hydrated can help improve your mood, reduce stress, and increase relaxation.
Help with Weight loss
There is a theory that drinking hot water can make you feel fuller. This way you are less likely to eat more and this will aid weight loss.
Drinking hot water can help you kick your digestion into gear. Perhaps this is why people drink coffee after a meal?
Hot water helps widen your blood vessels and directs blood flow towards your digestion to further help the digestion process.
Reduce Your Bodies Toxins
Toxins in the body can make you age faster but drinking hot water helps you flush them out. Think of it this way, drinking hot water can temporarily make your body sweat, and while you sweat the toxin starts to get flushed out.
Relieve Symptoms of Achalasia
Achalasia is a health condition that affects your esophagus from moving food down into the stomach. This means you would have trouble swallowing food.
It is believed that drinking hot water can help ease the symptoms and help the person digest more comfortably.
