Water is a universal drink that helps transport oxygen and nutrients across the body. It flushes out toxins and helps maintain the body temperature. Lukewarm or hot water helps improve metabolism, stress control and nasal congestion. But remember that too much hot water can burn or damage the tissues.

Blood glucose control through hot water
• Avoid drinking hot water immediately after meals. This prevents the breaking down of unwanted fats. Eventually, it prevents glucose levels from lowering.
• Try adding barley grains to water. Barley water helps in diabetes control.
• Adding lemon juice to hot water can also reduce blood glucose concentration.

Exercising is generally preferred to help reduce blood sugar levels. But drinking hot water was found to have the same effect in bringing blood sugar levels down. The recommended water intake for males is 3.7 litres, whereas it is 2.7 litres for females. Hot water immersion was also found to reduce blood glucose levels. Water—hot or cold—is always helpful for rehydrating the body. So, make water, especially hot, a part of your routine and let it work its magic.
