I have found many articles about the benefits of drinking hot water. It helps the body to detoxify, slows the aging and makes the digestion and weight control better. Our body needs water, and warm water can be much better than cold.. What is your experience of hot water?
Drinking water is one the best favors you can do to your body. It has surprising health benefits such as strong kidneys, more energy, better mood, and lower cholesterol.

I've read this often too. Sometimes I have hot water to drink. I haven't really noticed any benefits or otherwise.

Some think it is good to avoid constipation. It may help to start the body working in the morning.

I drink hot water with a lemon slice. It settles my tummy and gives me some vitamin C.

@allknowing I like warm water with cinnamon and honey if I have a cold.. Have to avoid most of the sugar to keep the blood sugar low..

I have only rarely drunk hot water on its own. I am far more likely to drink it with tea (no milk, no sugar).

@buenavida I used to know a lady whose breakfast every morning was wholemeal toast and a drink of hot water. She seemed very healthy for her age.

The body temperature is warm, so it does not need energy to warm the water..
