Cold Vs. Hot Water; Which Do you Love?

A glass of cold water may be refreshingly cool, but as it turns out…

It could be more harmful to your health than you can imagine!

Cold water can tamper with numerous healthy bodily processes and cause you ill-health.

Cold water robs you of nutrients

The body’s natural temperature is 37 degrees celsius. When you take a very cold drink, your body has to spend an exorbitant amount of energy trying to regulate your core temperature. This denies the body the energy needed to digest food and absorb nutrients.

Even worse, extremely cold water may cause respiratory mucosa to build up, thereby increasing the chances of sore throat-causing infection.

Not only that…

Chilling cold drinks can increase your risk of headache. A 2001 study found that women who had experienced a migraine in the previous one year were twice as likely to trigger a headache by drinking cold water.

That’s not all…

Cold water may contain dirty ice that’s coated with bacteria and fungus…and your ice at home is no exception.

Now, flip the script and see what warm /hot water can do for you…

It loads remarkable health benefits, including providing pain relief.

Drinking warm or hot water delivers a soothing effect on the muscles of the abdomen. It can also provide relief from menstrual and abdominal cramping, as well as muscle spasms.

Even better, warm water can boost your weight loss endeavor. By drinking a cup of hot water in the morning, you can jump-start your metabolism…

Warm water increases body temperature, which in turn supercharges the rate at which your metabolism burns calories.

And that’s not all…

Because warm water prevents premature aging by helping flush compounds that can accelerate aging from your body…

Not to mention improving skin elasticity by aiding in cellular repair.

What’s more…

Hot water clears nasal and throat congestion

It can naturally dissolve phlegm and clear your airways. This soothes sore throat symptoms.

Ever suffered from constipation?

Hot water can help you maintain regular bowel movement.

Dehydration is a known cause of recurring constipation problems…

Not to mention that bowel movement slows down as the bowels fill up. Taking hot water at this point helps in breaking down food remnants and flushing them through the intestines.

What about body detox?

Drinking hot water naturally raises your body temperature. This activates the sweating process, thereby flushing toxins out of your body through skin pores.

Again, the extra hydration helps the kidneys to flush waste matter out of the body.

And it seems hot water is not about to tire…

It improves your moods and outlook

According to Dr. Michael Wald, the director of Nutritional Services at Integrated Medicine and Nutrition in Mount Kisco, New York, consuming hot water activates receptors found in the stomach, esophagus, intestines and mouth. This stimulates the pleasure regions of the brain.

Even more amazing…

Practitioners of Chinese Medicine believe that drinking warm water with the same temperature as the body helps maintain balance.

They believe that extremes of either hot or cold throw off the body’s yin and yang.

Imbalances are believed to trigger symptoms like chills, depression, thirst, “foggy” thinking, sleepiness, bloating, and much more.

The list of hot water’s health benefits cannot be complete without mentioning its ability to enhance blood circulation

You see, hot water breaks down fat deposits in the body and bloodstream. This clears the vessels for increased blood circulation and excretion of toxins.

Additionally, the heightened circulation induces muscle relaxation, which can ease pain.

And as a bonus…

Mix hot water with lemon juice for optimal benefits.

LemonĀ  contains citric acid, magnesium, bioflavonoids, vitamin C, pectin, calcium and limonene, which supercharge your immunity to fight infections.

Lemons are also good for rejuvenating your hair, nails, skin, and brain

over and above being a potent antioxidant, which helps rid the body of free radicals.

They are also great at accelerating the breakdown of body fat, also known as adipose tissue.

And there you have it…

You can’t hide behind the thin veil of ignorance…

Because I’ve pulled back the curtains for you!

It’s your choice!

Spread the good word.

Thank you for your patronage.
