It is now known that you have to drink a lot to have a healthy life. The indicative amount of water that it is recommended to drink in a day is about 2 liters. Few people know that there is a formula that makes this figure a little less approximate. Multiplying 30 ml by our body weight we find the amount of water suitable for each of us. Beyond the quantity, however, what many of us don’t dwell on enough is the temperature. Some time ago there was a widespread belief that it was good to drink cold water in order to speed up metabolism and digestive processes. This news was completely denied today, following new studies on the subject. Nobody knows but this is how water should be drunk to better digest and facilitate weight loss. Let’s find out together.
Nobody knows but this is how water should be drunk to better digest and facilitate weight loss
Contrary to what has been claimed so far, Dr. Akhilesh Sharma, one of the foremost experts in Ayurvedic medicine, argues that it is best to avoid drinking cold water. In fact, cold water risks blocking digestion and negatively affecting blood flows. His studies came to the conclusion that the optimal temperature at which to drink water is between 10 and 20 degrees. Drinking lukewarm water would really help the body to hydrate itself better and apparently accelerate the digestive processes. But it does not end there, because Chinese medicine also comes to support the theses presented by Doctor Sharma.
Chinese medicine is certain: we must drink it hot
According to the dictates of Chinese medicine, our body would benefit from it in several respects if we drank hot water. Hot water helps to balance our body by regulating blood circulation. In addition, it would help the body in the process of eliminating toxins, having beneficial effects on the functionality of the liver and kidneys. So, no more doubts about what to answer to the question “cold or room temperature?”. At the most we can opt for: “could you warm it up for me?”.
