Water is essential for our survival. Doctors constantly tell us to drink 8-10 glasses of water everyday. Not only does water keep us hydrated but it also helps in clearing the skin, giving it a natural healthy glow.
Though it is very refreshing to drink cold water, according to Ayurvedic medicine, we should actually be drinking warm water. We give you 5 reasons to do just this.
Drinking warm cups of water throughout the day cleanses your body by flushing out toxins. Liquids generally help to break down the food present in the stomach, thereby helping to keep the digestive system healthy and on track. Drinking warm water also does the same but at a faster rate.
Warm water works as a natural pain-reliever. Warm liquids have a calming and soothing effect on our muscles, thereby providing instant relief from common pains such as headaches and menstrual cramps.
3. Weight Loss
Regular consumption of warm water can actually lead to weight loss. Drinking warm water increases the body temperature, which in turn leads to an increase in the body’s metabolic rate. The increased metabolism rate subsequently causes the body to burn more calories, which then leads to weight loss.
4. Improves Blood Circulation
Drinking warm water helps in the elimination of fat deposits in the body and other accumulating deposits in the nervous system. Owing to this, toxins that are circulating within the body are flushed out. Not only does this improve digestion and kidney functions, but it also improves blood circulation within the body.
5. Prevents Premature Ageing
The presence of excess toxins in the body is one of the primary reasons for premature ageing. Drinking warm water cleanses the body from such toxins and in this process, warm water repairs skin cells and increases their elasticity.
