Many people have a habit of drinking tea in the morning which is not the best thing doctors would recommend.
A better and healthier choice as a morning beverage is warm water.
You’ve probably heard about drinking warm water in the morning previously but never paid much attention to it.
But water, as the essential liquid our body requires can do wonders for our health and wellbeing, especially when consumed warm.
Consuming water heated to a temperature between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit can help with skincare, migraines, digestion, and promotes weight loss, but also has a lot of other health benefits.
To find out what those benefits are, keep reading our article.
1. Increases metabolism
When you drink warm water, your body temperature rises which causes your metabolic rate to increase along with it.
When this happens, your body is able to burn more calories, which in turn results in losing weight.
If you add lemon to the warm water it will help your digestive system break down adipose tissue (body fat) faster.
Lemons are rich with pectin fiber which also helps you feel fuller with less food, so this way you will be able to control food cravings easier.
2. Promotes digestion
Drinking warm water in the morning helps your kidneys and liver to function better.
It also helps break down and digest foods easier and helps your digestive organs to stay hydrated which later on helps them eliminate waste easier.
3. Helps with constipation
Good hydration helps prevent bloating, pain in your abdomen and discomfort in your stomach.
Warm water is recommended by doctors to regulate bowel movement and prevent constipation as it motivates your intestines to contract which pushes old waste trapped in them and helps push them out of your body.
4. Keeps you hydrated
Your whole body benefits from good hydration, especially your digestive system.
Drinking warm water will make you feel fuller and will reduce appetite.
The usual recommendation os eight 8 ounce glasses (around 2 liters) of water for an adult per day.
5. Better blood circulation
Besides helping your body eliminate fat deposits in your body, warm water helps your body get rid of the accumulated deposits in your nervous system as well.
By being “clean”, blood can flow easier through your veins, you will feel more energized, and your muscles will be looser.
