Benefits of drinking hot water Vs Cold Water

Water is essential for the body and it is impossible for a person to stay healthy for too long without adequate water. Most people chose to drink cold water as it gives a feeling of quenching thirst faster. Hot or warm water though is not really preferred. A comparative analysis shows that the temperature of the water we drink impacts our body.

COLD WATER

PROs:

  1. Quenches thirst instantly.
  2. Cools down the body immediately if body heat is unbearable (in fever or after workout).
  3. Neutralize the pain caused by acidity, gas.

CONs: 

4. Causes severe constipation by cooling down the digestive tract and by neutralizing body

heat used for digestion

5. Cools the down body causing a sudden drop in blood pressure

6. Causes the respiratory and digestive tract to contact, this may cause breathing and digestion

problems

HOT WATER

PROs:

1. Improves digestion and cleans the intestine and digestive tract effectively

2. Hot water eliminates toxins from the body facilitating better health

3. It relieves constipation and enables better bowel movements

4. Provides necessary heat in the body that regulates body temperature causing better

circulation of blood

5. Helps in reducing weight

CONs:

1. Injects unwanted heat in the body

2. Excess heat leads to fever and fatigue

3. Doesn't quench thirst easily

from a health perspective, hot water intake is better than drinking cold water. Cold water

harms far more than it benefits while hot water’s drawbacks can be easily controlled by

limiting consumption and limiting the temperature of water. Drinking warm or lukewarm

water is ideal and only cool (not cold) water must be consumed for quenching thirst

instantly.
