Drinking liquid, especially water in the morning provides multiple benefits to your health. But, the real question is what’s better to have on an empty stomach, a warm or a cold beverage?
Well, it turns out that a glass of warm water on an empty stomach is better for your overall health and well-being, rather than a cold beverage.
Here are several health benefits of drinking a glass of warm water on an empty stomach. Once you learn them, you’ll agree that there’s no better way of starting your day.
Why is Warm Water on an Empty Stomach Good for You?
1. Improves Bowel Movements
Having a glass of warm water can improve your digestion at any time of the day. In fact, the Journal of Neurogastroenterology and Motility published a study analyzing the effects of drinking warm water on achalasia patients.
These people have problems with the ingested food passing into the stomach as the muscles of the lower part of their esophagus can’t always relax.
The results showed that 58% of the participants had a drastic improvement in their condition after having their glass of hot/warm water. This morning ritual can activate your colon and ease your bowel movements.
What’s more, it ensures better absorption of the food you’ll ingest throughout the entire day.
