You might have heard about the health benefits of drinking warm water. You might know also that drinking hot/warm water first thing in the morning or just before retiring to sleep is helpful, don’t you? But how often do you sip hot/warm water in the morning or before turning in to bed?

Regularly drinking hot water can give you a whole lot of benefits, including nourishment for your skin and hair, and it also takes care of your overall system.
How Does Drinking Hot Water Improve our Health?
The ones who start their day by sipping hot/warm water, its benefits are sure. Let us explore a little and learn more about its benefits.
1. Detoxes the Body
Drinking hot or warm water detoxifies the body and cleanses the system by flushing out foreign elements and toxins.
How it works
By drinking warm water, our body temperature increases and causes our body to sweat. The toxins in our body are then flushed out through the sweat, which cleanses the blood flow too.
2. Improved Digestion
Drinking hot water in the morning aids in digestion. It cures bloating, acidity, and gas.
How it works
Hot or warm water helps break down food more quickly than cold water. Therefore, drinking warm or hot water before or after a meal makes digestion easy and quick.
3. Improved Bowel Movement
A glass or two of hot water on an empty stomach aids in effective bowel movement and prevents constipation.
How it works
Drinking hot water first thing in the morning helps in dissolving fat and food particles. This helps the food to pass easily through the intestine and eliminate all types of digestion problems. You can also drink it before each meal and throughout the day as well.
4. Improved Blood Circulation
The intake of hot water helps improve and stimulate easy blood circulation in the body. Proper blood circulation helps in carrying essential nutrients and oxygen to all the organs of the body smoothly.
How it works
Regular intake of hot or warm water helps in dissolving the fat that accumulates in the nervous system and also purifies the blood from toxins, thereby improving blood circulation. Moreover, the heat of the water expands the arteries and veins making more space for the blood to flow.
5. Skin Care
It slows down the process of the skin ageing and clears acne and blemishes.
How it works

When hot water gets into the system (i.e. our body), it automatically cleanses it from within. This ‘cleaning on the inside’ helps rid the body of toxins. Drinking hot water also brings out sweat which clears the pores of the skin and prevents acne or any skin-related problems.
6. Promotes Fitness
Hot water consumption makes the body feel light and active. It enhances stamina, which in turn, makes you physically fit.
How it works
Toxins are to be blamed for poor skin and hair; they also cause fatigue which makes people lethargic. Thus, when you drink hot water regularly, it flushes out all the toxins from your system and helps your body function well.
7. Helps with Weight Loss
Regularly drinking hot water helps you lose weight.
How it works
When hot water goes into our body, it burns off calories by increasing the metabolic rate. Drinking hot water before a meal also suppresses hunger and makes you eat less. Drinking hot water mixed with the juice of a lemon on an empty stomach helps dissolve fat, resulting in weight loss.
8. Provides Pain Relief

Just like pressing a warm compress against an injury or dipping your feet in warm water gives you relief from aches and pain, in the same way, drinking hot water can ease rheumatic and arthritic pain.
How it works
Since aches and pains usually occur due to poor blood circulation in the body, drinking hot water can help overcome the problem by removing toxins from the blood, which improves the blood flow.
9. Provides Nasal Relief
Drinking hot water helps in clearing nasal and throat congestion.
How it works
While drinking hot water, you take in vapour which clears the congestion in the nasal passage. Moreover, the warm water which you drink provides warmth to the mucous membranes and cures a sore throat.
10. Improves Hair Health
Drinking hot water prevents dry scalp, which, in turn, improves hair health.
How it works
The scalp gets hydrated and moisturized when you regularly drink hot water, and as a result, there is no or less formation of dead skin on the scalp. It also makes your hair shiny and lustrous, since hot water stimulates the nerves at the hair roots.
11. Alleviates Menstrual Pain
Using a warm compress in the abdomen and also drinking hot water at regular intervals provides relief during painful menstrual cramps.
How it works
The combination of the hot water compress against the abdomen and the heat of the water consumed within the body helps ease the pain by relaxing the abdominal muscles.
12. Eases Achalasia Pain
It helps to ease the symptoms of achalasia, a condition in which food does not go down smoothly into the stomach.
How it works
Since hot water helps in dissolving the food particles and fat, it helps people with achalasia to swallow and digest food better, especially oily food or meat.
