Experts claimed that drinking water is important to keep the body free of toxins and boost fitness while repairing skin cells to increase its elasticity, among others. The holistic approach recommends the consumption of warm water first thing in the morning for optimal health benefit.

The recommended temperature of the water is one that is warmed to between 50℃or 60℃. It is recommended to drink two glasses of warm water and you can add a couple of lemon slices for a vitamin C boost.

Here is an extensive list of health benefits of drinking warm water that will want to make you go and grab a glass while reviewing the list.

Stimulates Digestive Enzymes

Consuming warm water, particularly during your meals helps in the digestion of the food you eat. It facilitates digestion by speeding up the breaking down of the food particles by the digestive enzymes, improves constipation, and restores electrolytes and minerals in the body.

The presence of toxins in the body can lead to premature aging and other health issues. Our body will be prone to illness and age faster when a lot of toxic substances accumulate in our bodies. Drinking warm water can accelerate gastrointestinal motility and facilitate urination, which excretes toxins from our bodies. It also helps to boost skins elasticity and improves skin repairs, reducing the signs of premature aging like wrinkles, dry skin, and dark patches. To boost the results, you can include some lemon juice and honey into the warm water before drinking it.
