The simplest route to keep warm when it’s cold is to drink hot water. Bold statement, can we back it up?
We can. Aside from all the usual solutions to keep ourselves warm – layered clothing, closed shoes, hats – drinking a hot drink (even if it’s gently heated water, say with a squeeze of lemon) can raise the body’s temperature almost immediately.
Drinking hot water provides other benefits too:
*Relieves nasal congestion. According to a 2008 study, drinking a hot drink, such as tea, provided quick, lasting relief from a runny nose, coughing, sore throat and tiredness. The hot drink was more effective than the same drink at room temperature.
*Helps reduce toxins. Drinking hot water temporarily raises your internal body temperature. Your body’s endocrine system activates and you start to sweat. While sweating might be uncomfortable, it’s an essential part of getting rid of toxins and irritants we are exposed to in our environment. According to the Arthritis Foundation, drinking water is important for flushing toxins out of your body. It can help fight inflammation, keep the joints well lubricated and prevent gout.
*Can assist with weight loss. As your body compensates for the warm temperature of the water, it brings your internal temperature down and activates your metabolism. A small 2003 study reported that switching from cold water to hot water could help people lose weight through this thermic effect.
How do all of these benefits tie in with AquAid Hot Water Boilers? Very well, as it turns out.
When at work, waiting for the kettle to boil can be a lengthy process. Constantly boiling the kettle also uses more electricity, so getting your hot drink can be costly and counter-productive.
