Drinking enough water is vital for our health, and can provide numerous positive benefits. Though we usually drink cold water to quench our thirst, drinking warm water can improve our well-being also.

Why should you be drinking warm water?

It’s not advisable to consume very cold water. It can lead to several health drawbacks, especially if you’re playing sports or exercising. When your body is at a very high temperature, digesting cold water can make give you spasms in the stomach and small intestines. Thus, it is necessary to drink warm water, or room temperature water.

You may not know it, but drinking warm water has more benefits than you think. For example, try guzzling a glass of warm water on an empty stomach every morning. Then, wait for some time to pass, and drink another glass of water with a little lemon juice and a spoonful of honey. Soon you’ll see how your body begins to experience a feeling of cleansing and detoxification – this will make you feel fresher and much lighter.

Additionally, warm water helps to reduce food cravings, helping you to consume smaller amounts of food. If you’re only eating enough to satisfy you, you’re less likely to struggle with your weight. But hey! These are not all the benefits that you can get from drinking warm water. We’re going to mention a few of the most interesting plusses below.

Eliminates toxins

Warm water is extremely useful when fasting, since it eliminates the waste material than cold water alone can’t dissolve. Also, it helps remove waste through the kidneys, pores, and other organs that eliminate waste.

Likewise, keep in mind that constant consumption of warm water will help achieve a cleansing effect throughout your tissue. It’s not enough to drink it once a day, but it should be consumed regularly.

Relieves ailments


What’s more, warm water might even alleviate some diseases such as rheumatism and arteriosclerosis, among others.

It is also important to know that warm water is very beneficial for treating fever, though this may seem contradictory. When drunk immediately at the fever’s first onset, warm water can help reduce body temperature by dilating the channels of the body. That allows blood to circulate more easily and eliminate waste that accumulates in the pathways.
