Does drinking hot water throughout the day really help?

Every time we come across such queries from our clients. Is it a myth or it really works? Well, drinking hot water regularly is a simple Ayurvedic recommendation. Boiling the water for ten minutes stimulates Agni directly, allowing food to be processed and absorbed more efficiently during the meal. Taken between meals, it can provide effective support in flushing out water-soluble toxins from the dhatus (body tissues).
If we look into the principle scientifically, it helps increase your body temperature, which in turn accelerates your metabolic rate. It also helps wash down all the food stuck to your food pipe, especially the fat. Drinking cold water after or between meals solidify the fat content of meals while hot water melts fat which mobilizes easily and aids in proper digestion of food. It not only mobilizes the fat but detoxify your body by cleansing out the toxins. It’s a great remedy in constipation and bloating.
