Our body needs more than 2.5 liters of water per day to function properly. Water is provided by the 1.5L of water that is recommended to drink daily, by food but also by hot drinks such as tea, coffee, infusions, etc. But is it beneficial to drink warm or hot water?
Indeed, when not boiling, hot drinks bring many benefits to the body. Discover the 5 main ones:
1. Detoxify The Body
Drinking hot water in the morning, on an empty stomach, speeds up the metabolism and allows our body to burn more calories. This morning ritual will also allow you to eliminate toxins that cause, among other things, premature aging of cells.
2. Beautify The Skin
After drinking hot water, the body temperature rises. The pores open up and release impurities and toxins are removed, the skin becomes more elastic, and the skin texture is refined.
3. Improve Digestion
When hot water is consumed at the end of a meal, it speeds up the process of digesting food. Unlike freshwater that freezes fats from food and deposits them on the intestinal walls, hot water helps maintain a sufficiently high temperature for the smooth running of the digestive process.
4. Relieving Headaches
Hot water helps to dilate the blood vessels and thus facilitate blood flow: oxygen is better routed to the brain. Less pressure in the vessels and more oxygen in the brain help soothe the pain.
5. Treating A Cold Faster
Drinking plenty of water helps thin excess mucus from the nose and throat. Drinking hot also helps to decongest the nose and relieve sore throat.
So do not miss the benefits of hot water and enjoy teas and infusions at will. Be careful not to boil your water so as not to burn your esophagus. The ideal temperature is 60°C: heat up your water and wait a little while for your drink to cool down before consuming it and enjoying its effects.
