Most people know of the benefits of drinking water, especially for survival. Doctors say that we should drink at least eight glasses of water per day to make our bodies healthy. It is, however, important to know the benefits of drinking hot water. Below are five health benefits of drinking hot water.

1. Aids weight loss

Hot water helps to maintain a healthy metabolism and helps you lose some weight. A glass of hot water and lemon early in the morning is the best recipe for weight loss.

2. Helps nasal and throat congestion

If you are battling with cold, cough or sore throat, drink hot water, as it helps in dissolving the phlegm and removing it from your respiratory tract.

3. Reduces menstrual cramps

Hot water also helps to reduce menstrual cramps. The heat of the water will calm and soothe the abdominal muscles and melt the clotted blood which can help to ease cramps.

4. Aids proper digestion

Another benefit of hot water is proper digestion. Hot water should be taken preferably after meals to soften the oil present in the consumed foods.

5. Aids body detoxification

Hot water also helps to detoxify your body. After drinking hot water, your body’s temperature will rise and result in sweating. When this happens, some toxins are released from your body and it is properly cleansed.
