Drinking hot water vs drinking cold water, which is better for health?

There is some evidence to suggest you can benefit from some extra calories being burned by drinking cold water. The body has to regulate its temperature to around 98.6 degrees. Drinking cold water forces the body to work a little harder to bring the temperature back up. Cold water is absorbed into the blood stream more easily. By being absorbed into the blood stream easier, it helps to keep your body better hydrated. Especially after heavy physical activity and a lot of sweating has occurred. So, with all these benefits of drinking cold water, what benefit could drinking hot water possibly have? Would purifying your body be a good enough reason? Drinking hot water is kind of like going to a sauna.

When you drink a glass or two of hot water, your body temperature will increase a little. Just like when you drink cold water, and your body had to regulate temperature by heating up, the hot water will cause your body to want to cool down. The way our bodies cool down is by sweating. When we sweat from drinking hot water, we are helping to purify our bloodstreams. We literally sweat out the toxins which have built up in our body.

Some evidence suggests that by drinking hot water, we remove built up deposits in our nervous system. These deposits are responsible for creating negative thoughts and emotions. By removing these build ups, we can help to purify our thoughts and put us in a better emotional state. Drinking hot water can also actually purify the toxins out of your body.

Drinking hot water may not be good but drinking warm is good for health.

Many home remedies stress on the advantages of warm water in the morning. Admittedly, this is difficult to follow for first timers. Drinking warm water in the morning may initially cause discomfort and nausea, but you will get used to it eventually.

Bebefits:

  • Warm water helps to flush out the intestinal system and improve bowel movement.
  • It stimulates the stomach organ and other glands and prepares the body for its first meal of the day, i.e., breakfast.
  • Warm water taken in the morning may also help flush the kidneys of excess stomach acids.

Risks:

  • Warm water acts as a diuretic. This means that if you drink a constant supply of warm water, you may experience frequent urination. Holding your bowels or urine may cause discomfort and may even back up the toxins in your body causing potential harm.
  • While drinking eight glasses of warm water is a good idea, drinking more than the recommended amount of warm water may make you feel bloated and uncomfortable. Individuals also complain of nausea after drinking too much water.
  • Drinking too much warm water in a short period of time may lead to shortness of breath, distended stomach, and in some rare cases, fatalities.
