For a long time, I have been used to waking up to a cup of coffee or tea. I recently consulted a nutritionist and she recommended that I start my day with a glass of lukewarm water. She also insisted that I skip my morning cup of tea or coffee. In case, I am unable to do so, I can have a cup of green tea. Trust me, I have seen a lot of benefits by skipping my morning cup of milk tea/coffee. Instead, I start my day with a glass of lukewarm water. I tend to have a cup of tea at around 11 in the morning or 4 in the evening, but not early in the morning now! I have started to see a lot of benefits personally and therefore, I bring to you the 7 benefits of drinking warm in the morning.
Effective in weight loss
The increase in the body temperature leads to increase in your metabolic rate which helps in burning your calories throughout the day. More the calories burn, more you lose weight. All this can be possible if you have a glass of warm water every morning as it increases your body temperature. Adipose tissue also known as body fat can be broken down if you took warm water with lemon as lemon contains a fibre called pectin which controls food hunger.
Helps in improving digestion
Want better digestion and food elimination? Try warm water every morning and see the result yourself. Warm water encourages your digestive system and helps in better digestion and elimination of foods. Never go for cold water in the morning as it solidifies the oils and fats you eat and makes digestion even more difficult.
Little or no bowel movement can often lead to constipation which is irritating and uncomfortable. Lack of water in the body is considered as the main reason for constipation occurrence. Taking warm water in the morning before eating helps to improve your bowel movements and reduces constipation.
It reduces menstrual pain
Menstrual cramps are no less than hell and to ease this pain, warm water should be the first priority. It can comfort the muscles of your stomach and diminish your menstrual pain. Not only menstrual cramp but warm water can also diminish all types of cramps effectively.
Stops premature ageing
Aging is all natural but it becomes a problem if happens prematurely. Our body becomes prone to ageing with the accumulation of toxins in the body. Taking medicines can further increase your problems as they come with their own side effects, so it’s advisable to implement a natural way with no side effect. Drinking warm water can help in cleansing toxins from our body and further repair skin cells too. It also increases your skin elasticity by repairing skin cells.
Improved blood circulation
With a glass of warm water accumulated deposits in your nervous system can be eliminated. The toxins present get flushed with the help of warm water which aids to blood circulation. Further, it helps in relaxing your muscles by eliminating poor circulation.
It induces sleep
Having warm water before you go to bed soothes your nerves which in turn lead to a good sleep. Most people I know suffer from insomnia and sleep disorders. So did I. But my nutritionist told me that having warm water can help keep away my insomnia and also my midnight cravings. The fact that I could get a sound sleep and feel fresh up in the morning made me do it at night too and I am amazed by the results.
I have also been recommended to have warm water with powdered fenugreek seeds or overnight soaked seeds for a lot of benefits. Let me try that and get back to you with all the benefits of methi (fenugreek) seeds. In the meanwhile, try this and take charge of your life.
