Suchita Patel, Jinal Patel, Mona Patel and Prof. Dr. Dhrubo Jyoti Sen*
Most of us start our mornings with a fresh, hot cup of coffee or tea to
warm-up our bodies after getting out of bed. When we drink water, we
tend to prefer it cold, but according to Ayurvedic medicine, we have it
all wrong. Regularly drinking very warm water, especially in the
morning, can heal our bodies, providing digestive power and reducing
metabolic waste that could have built up in our immune system.
Physicians recommend drinking warm water in the morning, usually,
with a polyphenol-rich lemon immersion, or with a tea to decrease free
radical activity in the body. The consumption of warm water increases the tightening of the
intestines, which optimizes elimination. Unlike hot water, processed cold water is devoid of
many essential minerals that could become very unfavorable to the digestive tract when
consuming a meal. For cold water drinkers, recommends refraining from drinking 20 minutes
before eating — even if the source is natural spring water. While drinking warm water may
not suit the taste buds, it may be beneficial to put the caffeine and tea aside for health's sake.
Here are six reasons why:
1. Cleanses Digestion: A very warm cup of water in the morning can help cleanse your body
by flushing out toxins. Water and other liquids help break down the food in the stomach and
keep the digestive system on track. Warm water will help break down these foods even faster,
making them easier for digestion. Drinking cold water during or after a meal can actually
harden the oil in consumed foods and therefore create a fat deposit in the intestine. Adding
ice to processed cold water will strip it of natural-containing minerals, as these minerals are
essential to keeping the digestive tract healthy. Luckily, it can be replaced by a glass of cold
water with a warm one to aid digestion, especially after eating a meal. 2. Aids Constipation: At one point or another, many of us are plagued by this common
stomach problem where we have little to no bowel movement. The strain felt during
elimination, accompanied by bloating, is brought on by a lack of water in the body. Drinking
very warm water in the morning on an empty stomach can help improve bowel movements
and aid constipation while breaking down foods as they smoothly pass through the intestines.
Stimulating the bowels will help return your body back to normal functioning.
3. Alleviates Pain: Warm water, considered to be nature’s most powerful home remedy, can
help alleviate pain from menstruation to headaches. The heat from warm water is known to
have a calming and soothing effect on the abdominal muscles, which can help provide instant
relief for cramps and muscle spasms. According to Healthline, warm or hot water is usually
better for cramps, as hot liquids increase blood flow to the skin and help relax the cramped
4. Sheds Excess Pounds: If you’re on a diet, chances are you’ve heard drinking a glass of
warm water first thing in the morning can help with weight loss. Warm water increases body
temperature, which therefore increases the metabolic rate. An increase in metabolic rate
allows the body to burn more calories throughout the rate. It can also help the
gastrointestinal tract and kidneys to function even better. Drinking a glass of warm water
and a lemon will help break down the adipose tissue, or body fat, in the body and also control
food craving due to lemon’s pectin fiber.
5. Improves Blood Circulation: The fat deposits in the body are eliminated along with
accumulating deposits in the nervous system when you drink a glass of warm water. This
flushes out the toxins that are circulating throughout the body and then enhances blood
circulation. Making sure the muscles are relaxed will eliminate poor circulation and blood
6. Halts Premature Aging: Premature aging is a woman’s worst nightmare, but luckily, this
can be prevented by drinking warm water. The presence of toxins in the body can lead to
aging faster, but warm water can help cleanse the body from those toxins, while repairing
skin cells to increase elasticity. Women will always benefit because they have more hormones
to contend with, making constipation more of an issue.
To reap the health benefits of warm water, drink it every morning plain or with a lemon for
taste. Drinkers to have warm water, as drinking straight hot water can potentially be
damaging to tissue in the mouth and esophagus. After boiling water, be sure to let it cool for
a few minutes before you start consuming. Also, “always check with your prescribing physician before drinking warm water if you’re on any medications that could impact the
efficacy of your medications”.
