Here are five ways drinking water heals your body:

1. Cleanses digestive system
Drinking warm water in the morning helps cleanse the body by flushing out toxins. It helps food break down and digest faster. It also aids constipation and improves bowel movements.

2. Relieves pain
Warm water is one of nature’s most powerful home remedies. The heat has a calming and soothing effect on the abdominal muscles and can increase blood flow to the skin and help relax cramped muscles.

3. Sheds excess weight
Drinking a glass of warm water first thing in the morning can aid weight loss. Warm water increases body temperature, boosts the metabolic rate and allows the body to burn more calories all through the day.

4. Improves blood circulation
Drinking warm water flushes out toxins circulating throughout the body and then enhances blood circulation and blood flow.

5. Stops premature ageing
The presence of toxins in the body can lead to ageing faster, but warm water can cleanse the body from those toxins while repairing skin cells to increase elasticity.

Drinking straight hot water can potentially damage tissue in the mouth and oesophagus. Be sure to let it cool for a few minutes before consuming.
