Did you know that drinking hot water can provide your body with the water it needs to replenish fluids? It can also improve digestion, relieve congestion, and even make you feel more relaxed.
Drinking a few glasses of warm or hot water each day might offer even more benefits than you previously thought.
What Are The Benefits of Drinking Hot Water?
1. Relieves Nasal Congestion
The warmth of the hot water will create steam. Whilst drinking, if you deeply inhale this gentle steam, it could help loosen blocked sinuses and relieve symptoms of a sinus headache.
What’s more, since you have various mucous membranes throughout your neck and upper torso, drinking hot water will warm up this area and soothe a sore throat caused by a buildup of mucus.
2. Healthier Digestion
When you don’t drink enough water to keep your body hydrated, the small intestine will absorb most of the water consumed through food and drinking. This will cause dehydration and could potentially make it more difficult to eliminate waste from your body.
Hot water also helps to break down food faster than drinking cold or warm water. It reduces the risk of constipation and supports healthy digestion.
Chronic dehydration can cause a range of health issues, so it’s important to keep yourself regularly hydrated. Public Health England recommends 6-8 Glasses of Water a Day.
3. Improves Circulation
Hot water is also known as a vasodilator. This means that it expands the blood vessels and helps to improve circulation. This can also help your muscles relax and reduce pain.
4. Helps Removes Toxins From Your Body
Drinking hot water regularly will raise your core body temperature, and therefore will stimulate the sweating process – one of the main ways your body eliminates toxins. When consumed on a regular basis with some lemon added to it, hot water will help balance out all of the acidic food consumed throughout the day. Though, if you are not a fan of lemons, green tea can be just as beneficial.
5. Reduced Stress
Recent studies have found that the consumption of hot water and hot drinks such as tea and coffee, could help people manage stress and anxiety.
6. Calms Your Central Nervous System
Drinking hot water can calm your central nervous system and lubricate parts of your body such as your joints. So, when your nervous system is primed for healthy and controlled reactions, you may notice that you feel fewer aches and pains.
7. Clears Your Skin
A huge benefit of drinking enough hot water is that it can prevent signs of premature ageing, such as wrinkles, dry skin and dark patches, and it can help clear your skin!
Drinking hot water will help repair damaged skin cells, helping to make your skin smoother, looking fresh and free from blemishes and breakouts.
8. Hair Growth & Health
Drinking plain hot water is also known to benefit hair growth and health. It will help keep your hair soft and shiny whilst also accelerating the growth of your hair.
Consuming hot water will give energy to the nerve endings in the roots of your hair, which makes them activate and grow. Staying hydrated will also benefit your scalp, as it too will be hydrated and moisturised, helping to fight against dry scalp and dandruff.
