Hey!!!! It has been a long time my lovely people. The fact of the matter is that I have been preoccupied with academic activities and have not been able to commit to living here. Although we are currently on strike, I have decided to brighten the day of my blog readers by publishing this post today. Please take your time and read the content thoroughly.

Historically, the benefits of drinking water have been emphasized. Almost certainly, you've heard that drinking hot water first thing in the morning or the last thing before bed can be beneficial. When you start your day with a cup of hot water, however, how often do you do that?

Drinking hot water regularly has some benefits, including enhanced skin and hair health as well as increased overall system performance.

The consumption of hot water has many health benefits.
Sipping warm water on an empty stomach is a widespread activity. Drinking a cup of coffee first thing in the morning has many health benefits, according to those who do this. So let's take a deeper look and see what it's all about!

System Decontamination
Water, whether it is hot or warm, helps to eliminate toxins and foreign substances from the body, resulting in a cleaner, healthier system.

Our core temperature rises as a result of drinking warm water, which causes us to sweat more. As a result of sweating, toxins are removed from our bodies, and the bloodstream is cleansed as a result.

Absorption of Nutrients Has Been Improving
Drinking hot water first thing in the morning has been shown to promote digestive health in people. Gas, bloating, and acid reflux are all alleviated with this supplement.

It is more efficient to digest food if you use hot or warm water instead of cold or iced water. To promote digestion and speed up the process, it is recommended that you consume warm or hot water before or after a meal.

An increase in gastrointestinal movements
A glass or two of hot water on an empty stomach can help to prevent constipation from occurring.

Fatty acids and meal particles are more easily broken down when you drink hot water first thing in the morning. Making it easier for food to pass through the intestines, this helps to promote digestion and absorption. Besides that, it's a good idea to drink it before and after each meal, as well as at various other times throughout the day.

Improvements to Blood Circulation
Hot water consumption increases and stimulates blood flow throughout the body, resulting in increased efficiency. All of the body's organs rely on adequate blood circulation to receive the nutrients and oxygen they require.

Water consumed at a hot or warm temperature regularly helps to break down fat in the neurological system as well as remove toxins from the bloodstream, so improving blood circulation and lowering inflammation. When the water is hot enough, the arteries and veins expand, allowing more blood to flow through them and into the body.

Skin-care regiment
Beyond minimizing the appearance of ageing and acne, this treatment also has the added benefit of keeping skin appearing youthful.

We begin to purify ourselves from the inside out as soon as hot water enters our bodies. With this "cleaning on the inside," toxins can be pushed out of the body. Drinking hot water, which flushes out the skin's pores and produces sweating, can help you avoid acne and other skin-related concerns.

Physical fitness is encouraged
Hot water helps the body feel more invigorated and supple because it increases the flow of oxygen. Improvements in endurance are followed by an increase in physical fitness.

Beyond affecting poor skin and hair quality, toxic substances can cause lethargy, which makes people feel tired and unmotivated. By flushing out dangerous toxins from your system, drinking hot water frequently can help your body work correctly as a result.

Weight loss is aided by this method
Drinking hot water regularly can help you lose weight.
Our metabolic rate increases when hot water enters our body, causing us to lose weight. Drinking hot water before a meal has the added benefit of decreasing the amount of food you consume. Warm water mixed with lemon juice should be consumed first thing in the morning on an empty stomach to help with fat breakdown and weight loss.

Provides pain relief on an as-needed basis
A warm compress or immersing your feet in warm water can both help to ease rheumatic and arthritic pain, and drinking hot water can help to do so as well.

It is believed that drinking hot water can ease the discomfort produced by poor circulation in the body, which is the most prevalent source of the problem, as the hot water flushes toxins from the bloodstream.

Inhibits Angioedema of the nasal passages
Drinking hot water can help to alleviate nasal and throat congestion.
It is beneficial to breathe in the steam produced by a cup of hot water to ease nasal congestion. It also helps to relieve sore throats by warming the mucous membranes on the inside of the mouth.

Makes hair look more lustrous and bouncy
Drinking hot water will help to maintain your hair healthy.
The scalp is hydrated and moisturised as a result of drinking hot water daily, which helps to avoid the development of dead skin on the scalp. Hot water stimulates the neurons in the hair roots, resulting in hair that is more glossy and silky in appearance.

Menstrual pain is lessened as a result of this supplement.
Drinking hot water frequently as using a warm compress to the abdomen, may help to relieve the agony of menstrual cramps.

It is believed that the combination of the hot water compress applied to the stomach and the heat of the water in the body causes the abdominal muscles to relax.

For the treatment of Achalasia, analgesia is prescribed.
This medication can be beneficial in the treatment of achalasia, a condition in which food does not easily pass down the stomach.

Food particles and fats are more easily dispersed and digested by people who have achalasia when they are washed down with hot water. This is especially true of greasy or meat-based foods.

Increasing the temperature of the water has been shown to benefit the skin.
It is suggested that people drink at least 2 litres of water per day to keep their skin hydrated and in good health. Was it ever brought to your attention that drinking hot water instead of room-temperature water can yield superior outcomes? These skin benefits can be obtained by sipping on hot water.

Skin Care Products for Acne
With it, you can get rid of acne and other skin infections for good.

It has been shown that drinking hot water stimulates perspiration, which in turn helps to open up the pores on the skin. Warm water aids in the promotion of good bowel motions and digestion, which in turn aids in the removal of toxins from the body and the alleviation of skin conditions.

It can delay the onset of old age.
Drinking hot water regularly will help to keep your skin looking young and beautiful since cells are less likely to grow when water is hot. Dead skin cells are responsible for rough and drab skin. A bonus is that hot water flushes out toxins that enter the body through sweat, urine, or faeces, protecting the skin.

Keeps moisture in the skin for a longer period of time.
It is possible to have better skin health and brightness. Moreover, it helps to keep the skin from becoming dry and lifeless.

A hot water bath will keep you hydrated all day! The skin appears more supple and healthier as a result of the enhanced blood flow.

Advantages of Other Sorts

Combining honey with warm water for the skin is a lovely combo. It strengthens the immune system and helps to prevent skin allergies from developing.

Using honey and warm water to treat skin problems has antibacterial properties that help to keep skin problems at bay by scavenging free radicals. Ingesting warm water and local honey regularly can help allergy patients improve their immune systems.

What are the benefits of drinking warm water for your hair?
Warm water is beneficial to not only your skin and nails but also to your hair, which is a bonus. See what it has to offer and then we'll see.
Resultantly, the hair becomes silky.
In the process, hair is rejuvenated and softened.
The nerves at the root of the hair must be strong to avoid hair damage. To accomplish this, drink warm water that is rich in nutrients for the hair follicles on an everyday basis.

Hair Growth is accelerated.
Hair growth and hair loss are both encouraged by regular consumption of warm water.

The presence of water in hair follicles has long been speculated about. If this is not there, hair follicles get dry and stop growing. Warm water both inhibits and promotes hair development by increasing the number of cells in the scalp.

Delays the appearance of dandruff on the scalp.
Dehydration does not cause the scalp to dry out and flake, nor does it cause the scalp to become itchy and red.
The enhanced circulation caused by drinking warm water assists in the hydration of the hair and scalp. So the scalp is kept moisturized and is less likely to dry out or become irritated. All you need to do to get rid of dandruff is drink three to four glasses of warm water every day for at least two weeks.

When it comes to drinking warm water, is there any risk?

In addition to the health benefits mentioned above, drinking hot or warm water has many cosmetic and hair benefits. In contrast, taking an excessive amount of it could have harmful implications. A few of the dangers associated with drinking hot or warm liquids are listed below:

If the water temperature is too high, it is possible to burn or scald your lips, tongue, and inner lining of your mouth. In addition to being unpleasant, blisters and ulcers in the mouth can also prevent you from eating or drinking for days at a time.

If you drink a lot of hot or warm water, you'll have to work harder to get the toxins out of your body. When the kidneys are under stress, their capacity to function is compromised.

By drinking very hot water, electrolytes in the blood might be depleted. Excruciating headaches may develop from the enlargement of brain cells as a result of this.

Excessive usage of hot water can erode the enamel on the teeth. It is as a result of this that the teeth become more sensitive to hot and cold foods and drinks.

Water that has been heated is more susceptible to contamination than water that has been chilled. Water that has been boiled and then allowed to cool to a comfortable temperature should be consumed before eating.

Overconsumption of hot water can result in increased blood volume, which can then lead to increased blood pressure, which can then result in hypertension and heart difficulties, as previously stated.

The diuretic characteristics of warm water. Your bowel movements may become uncontrollable, resulting in a considerable lot of discomfort, or you may notice that you need to urinate more frequently than you normally would.
If you consume large amounts of hot or warm water, you may get nausea, dizziness, and an overall feeling of unease.

You are on strike? Wow… For which reason, if I may ask? Do you min elaborating a bit? Thanks in advance!

To come back to the topic of this blog, I must admit that I only drink hot water… when it is full of caffeine. I guess that most of the benefits that you listed are lost in the process…. However, I just don't like pure hot water, whereas I could drink litres and litres of cold water without any problem.

You are on strike? Wow… For which reason, if I may ask? Do you min elaborating a bit? Thanks in advance!

Friend, the problem is that for quite some time now, the federal government in this country appears to have been obligated to pay the salaries of the Academic Staff, which are estimated to be worth close to a billion naira. As far as Nigerian colleges are concerned, this has been a chronic and incurable disease in the country's population. This is the first time we have had an indefinite strike like this since covid19, which lasted over a year and a few months before it ended.

The reality is that Nigeria's academic staff has demonstrated how depressed they have become as a result of the federal government's failure to follow through on its promises, and the federal government is not prepared to put things right with them.
The academic staff believes that by continuing their strike, the government will be compelled to take the necessary action. Student protests against this objective are already taking place in the streets, but so yet there have been no beneficial results. We have been shut out of our university, and the school administration is evicting students from their residence halls.

Damned! Does it mean the government has stopped paying you? What the hell! How can they consider people to work under those conditions? In any case, I hope you will manage to get something out of this strike. The situation looks very unpleasant.

In France, strikes are regular. I however never had the impression they led anywhere. I wish you better luck than this.

It is true that the situation is severe, but I am hopeful and praying that they would take swift action to correct the issue. At least for the time being, I'm back to writing. In addition, while we are weathering the strike, I will be on the lookout for more opportunities that will benefit me.

Sincerely, thank you for voicing your concerns.

I don't think I can make myself drink warm water unless it has coffee or tea in it:) I'd have to see some pretty convincing studies to persuade me. However, I do like to start the day with a class of cool (not cold) water. It wakes me up. Then, massive amounts of coffee.

Thanks for this article. I will actually do a little reading to find out if it is worth the trouble to change my habits.

Thank you for the advice.

Please accept my thanks for visiting. As for being urged to take hot water instead of a coffee or any other beverage, that doesn't make any sense to us. Despite this, I've come to learn that hot water still has some health benefits for the body system, albeit the average person will not notice. Lol. Although hot water has many advantages, it also has some drawbacks. The same goes for me; I occasionally drink warm water.

Dear @jsalvage , East Asians believe that drinking warm water is healthier than drinking cold water.
By the way, It is surprising that Nigerian university employees went on strike because they were not paid.
I am sorry that you have to drop out of school.
By the way, it is shocking to see you wearing glasses with red lenses. I am concerned about your current health.

Thanks so much my dear friend for your concerns. Well, i'm doing good. Was putting that glass not because of any health issues though. It was an impulse doing or should I say that i used the glasses because i wanted to take that picture.
By the way, how are you doing?

Dear my young brother @jsalvage , How have you been? I am fine! I am glad that you are in good health now!
I hope the strikes in Nigerian universities have been halted so you can take classes again!

Greetings from this side of the world. I'd like the strike to end sooner, but I'll be leaving the school atmosphere as soon as possible next week. Exactly when the strike will end is a mystery to us at this time. However, I have faith that God's plan will be carried out at this very moment in time.

It's great to have you back. What about your family?
