  • Overcoming colds in the morning

Warm water can relieve symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections such as runny nose and stuffy nose. High temperatures in warm water can speed up the passage of mucus, so cold symptoms will subside. In addition, the warm temperature is also able to relieve pain in the throat due to the buildup of mucus in the esophagus in the morning.

  • Weight loss

Drinking warm water in the morning can activate the body's metabolism, resulting in more fat burning throughout the day. Drinking hot water also helps cleanse the intestines and eliminate waste in the body that may cause flatulence and excess water in the body.

  • Smooth digestive tract

Stomach pain due to digestive tract disorders is generally waste trapped in the intestine causing constipation and abdominal pain. Drinking, warm water can help the intestines contract to expedite the process of elimination. In addition, drinking warm water activates the digestive tract. Water works as a lubricant or lubricant along the organs of the digestive system and helps hydrate and flush out toxins.

  • Toxins detoxification in the body

One of the benefits of warm water for health is the detection of toxins. When we drink warm water, the body temperature rises and activates the endocrine system, making it easier to sweat.

  • Helps overcome abdominal pain during menstruation

  • Good for sensitive teeth and cavities

For those who have sensitive teeth and cavities, it is not recommended to drink cold water because it can damage, harm dental health and do not have good benefits. In some cases, cold water can damage dental fillings. Warm water is recommended because it has a safe temperature and provides comfort for sensitive teeth.

  • Skin lightening

Drinking warm water every day on a regular basis will help the body to break down fat deposits, relax muscles, and increase blood flow. An increase in blood circulation can rejuvenate skin cells and keep them nourished.

  • Eliminate spicy taste faster

The spicy taste sensation is obtained from food using chili seeds, the chemical compound is called capsaicin. This compound will dissolve in hot water, so after drinking hot water, you will feel more comfortable and slowly the spicy effect will disappear.
