5 surprising benefits of drinking warm water in the morning



Drinking water often is necessary because it provides nourishment for your skin, hair and your overall system.

While consuming warm water in the morning provides a number of benefits including easing digestion, it also help you feel more relaxed.

You can add slices of cucumber or lemon if you want, for a more refreshing taste. Below are 5 surprising benefits of drinking warm water in the morning:

1. Prevents premature ageing

Nobody wants to age prematurely; however, the presence of toxins in the body can make aging faster a reality. When our body accumulates toxins, it becomes prone to illness and aging. Warm water can help cleanse the body from toxins. Furthermore, it can help repair skin cells which can lead to an increase in the elasticity of your skin. (Source:

2. Aids digestion

Drinking warm water both soothes and activates your digestive tract. Water is, after all, the lubricant that keeps your digestion going. As the water moves through your stomach and intestines, digestive organs are better hydrated and able to eliminate waste.

Warm water can also dissolve and dissipate things you’ve eaten that your body might have had trouble digesting

Improved blood circulation

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.

4. Stimulates hunger

When you have warm water, the body has to work harder to bring down its temperature. Thus, the metabolic system is kicked off. This further triggers the mind to demand food and stimulates hunger. (Source:

5. Can decrease stress levels

When your nervous system is primed for healthy and controlled reactions, you’ll find that you feel fewer aches and pains, as well as less panicked throughout your day.

Since drinking hot water helps improve central nervous system functions, you might end up feeling less anxious if you drink it. If you add some warm milk to the mix, you might find that you’re feeling even calmer than after drinking hot water, according to a study.
