10 Health Benefits Of Drinking Hot Water
1. May relieve nasal congestion
A cup of hot water creates steam. Holding a cup of hot water and taking a deep inhale of this gentle vapor may help loosen clogged sinuses
2. May aid digestion
Drinking water helps to keep the digestive system moving. As the water moves through your stomach and intestines, the body is better able to eliminate waste.
3. May improve central nervous system function
Not getting enough water, hot or cold, can have negative effects on your nervous system functioning, ultimately affecting mood and brain function.
4. May help relieve constipation
In many cases, drinking water is an effective way to relieve and prevent constipation. Staying hydrated helps soften stool and makes it easier to pass.
5. Keeps you hydrated
Although some evidence shows that cool water is best for rehydration, drinking water at any temperature will help keep you hydrated
6. Reduces shivering in the cold
A 2017 study found that while the body’s natural response in cold conditions is to shiver, drinking warm fluids can help reduce shivering.
7. Improves circulation
Taking a warm bath helps your circulatory organs — your arteries and veins — expand and carry blood more effectively throughout your body.
8. May decrease stress levels
Since drinking hot water helps improve central nervous system functions, you might end up feeling less anxious if you drink it.
9. May help the body’s detoxification systems
A 2020 study found drinking more water can help protect the kidneys while diluting waste materials in the blood.
10. May help relieve symptoms of achalasia
Researchers aren’t sure why, but an older 2012 study found drinking warm water may help people with achalasia digest more comfortably.
