Glasses of warm water.
BY DUNCAN M.
Most of us take a hot cup of tea or coffee in the morning yes its good for the day,but have you ever considered taking a glass of warm water in the morning?Well here are a few benefits you miss.
Taking warm water in the morning helps flush out toxins and help break down food in you stomach faster and keep the digestive system on track.Taking cold water after meals will harden the oil in the consumed foods hence creating fat deposits in the intestine.
2. AIDS CONSTIPATION.
Drinking very warm water in the morning on an empty stomach can help improve bowel movements and aid constipation while breaking down foods as they smoothly pass through the intestines.Stimulating the bowels will help return your body back to normal functioning.
This might sound crazy but it works,warm water is considered to be nature’s most powerful home remedy,can help alleviate pain from menstruation to headaches,the heat from warm water has a calming and soothing effect on the abdominal muscles which helps instant relief for cramps by increasing blood flow to the skin and help relax the cramped muscles.
4.SHEDS EXCESS POUNDS.
Taking a glass of warm water and a lemon immersed in the morning will help break down the adipose tissue,or body fat,in your body,and also control food craving due to lemon’s pectin fiber.
To reap all those benefits of warm water,drink it 760-5377 morning plain or with a lemon immersed(which is better)
NB: ENSURE AFTER BOILING, LET THE WATER COOL FOR A FEW MINUTES BEFORE CONSUMING,ALWAYS CHECK WITH YOUR PRESCRIBING PHYSICIAN BEFORE TAKING WARM WATER IF YOU ARE ON ANY MEDICATION TO AVOID IMPACT ON THE EFFICACY OF YOUR MEDICATIONS.
