You have probably seen some people drink warm water in the morning and wondered why.
At first, I used to see people drinking warm water and I would assume that it’s because they didn’t want to experience teeth sensitivity from the cold water. Apparently, a cup of warm water in the morning is beneficial not just for your health but also your beauty. Here are benefits of taking warm water in the morning.
1. Helps the body get rid of toxins.
A very warm cup of water in the morning can help flush out toxins as the water helps break down the food in your stomach and keeps the digestive system on track. Warm water will help break down these foods even faster, making them easier for you to digest.
2. Relieves constipation.
Don’t you hate it when you’re really constipated? Well, if you form a habit of drinking warm water in the morning on an empty stomach, this can help improve the bowel movements and stop the constipation by breaking down foods as they smoothly pass through the intestines. Stimulating the bowel system will help return your body back to its normal functioning.
3. Alleviates pain.
Warm water is said to be one of nature’s powerful home remedies and can help alleviate pain from, menstrual to headaches. The heat from the water has a calming and soothing effect on the abdominal muscles which can help provide instant relief from cramps and muscle spasms. Hot liquids are also said to increase blood flow to the skin and help the cramped muscles.
4. Weight loss.
If you’re on a diet, drinking a glass of warm water and a lemon with help break down the body fat in your body and also control craving due to the lemon’s pectin fiber.
5. Halts premature aging.
The presence of toxins in the body can cause the skin to appear older and cause premature aging. Warm water however, can help cleanse the body by removing the toxins while repairing skin cells to increase it’s elasticity.
To reap the benefits of warm water, drink it every morning on an empty stomach, you can add a lemon to taste.
