In this health-conscious era, more and more people want to stay fit. They constantly look for ways to maintain good health. Many have even developed a good habit of starting the day with a glass of lukewarm water as soon as they wake up in the morning. Yes, drinking lukewarm water on an empty stomach offers the maximum health benefits. It not only stimulates the removal of toxins from the body but also benefits the overall digestive system. 

7 Best Benefits of Lukewarm Water

Although warm water isn’t the most palatable, there are many reasons to start drinking it this way, either alone or with lemon. Below given are 7 reasons to start drinking lukewarm water on an empty stomach:

  1. Lukewarm Water for Digestive system: The food pipe, after having digested a variety of foods the previous day, would still be left with remnants. Starting the day with a glass of warm water acts as a good flush, which removes all these remnants. The lukewarm or hot water also helps in removing greasiness, which is very helpful in people who eat a lot of junk food.
  2. Lemon and lukewarm water for Weight loss: Drinking lukewarm water on an empty stomach is perfect for those who are trying to lose weight as lukewarm water raises body temperature and metabolism. This, eventually, helps in burning more fat and boosting the weight loss efforts through diet and exercise changes. Ideally, you should add some drops of lemon in it. 
  3. Lukewarm water Strengthens Immune system: When a glass of hot water along with some lime is consumed early in the morning, it gives the required dose of vitamin C and potassium to the body, which strengthens your immune system. Also, as the stomach is empty, the absorption is faster. 
  4. Maintains the body’s pH balance: The body’s pH turns alkaline as the ascorbic acid and the citric acid is easily digested and removed from the system. Drinking lukewarm water helps in maintaining the required pH in the body.
  5. Keeps you positive throughout the day: A nice juicy lime smells great, and this can be one of the best mood enhancers to begin your day with.
  6. Lukewarm water benefits for Skin and hair: For anybody with good skin, the key success factor is hydration, and a glass of warm water in the morning works as a cherry on the cake. When our body accumulates toxins, it becomes prone to illness and aging. A glass of hot luke water in the morning stimulates detoxification and helps in repairing skin cells and elasticity.
  7. Gargling with lukewarm water: To lessen the degree of pain or soreness in the mouth during the orthodontic treatment, you can gargle with 8 ounces of lukewarm water with one teaspoonful of salt dissolved in it. Swish it around your mouth and then spit it out. It will dull the pain and provide relief. 

So, start your day with a glass of warm water and feel the difference. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
