The 10 – Drinking Hot Water

This time around… forget that herbal tea or lemon water, Hot Water is what it’s all about this week! We all know water is a must, not just for a healthy lifestyle but ANY lifestyle because without water, we’d be goners. But the half-gallon jugs and green tea infused bottles need tome aside because The 10 for this week is all about plain ‘ol hot water… and it’s anything but plain (when it comes to the health benefits).

So here’s why hot water should be on your menu!

  1. Weight Loss – Hot water helps to boost your metabolism and breakdown the adipose tissue (body fat) in your body.
  2. Menstrual Cramps – The heat of the water will warm up and soothe your abdominal muscles which can lead to curing cramps & spasms.

  4. Prevent Premature Aging – Toxins in your body make you age faster, so #4 helps you stay younger. Also, hot water helps repair skin cells which restores the elasticity of your skin making it smoother.
  5. Prevent Acne & Pimples – Hot water deep cleanses your body & eliminates the root cause of acne-related infections.
  6. Hair Health, Growth, & Vitality – Hot water helps to make smooth, soft, shiny hair by energizing the nerve endings in your hair roots keeping them active. This also means regular activity of your hair roots stimulating hair growth.
