Kidney Problems And Other Effects Of Regularly Drinking Hot Water 



Effect of drinking hot water

Some people drink hot water frequently for several reasons like the weather of a place or health conditions, but it can have effect on your health. It’s more advisable to take warm water over hot one.

Here are some of the side effects of drinking hot water too frequently

Sleep disorder

Too much consumption of hot water causes an imbalance in your sleep. Avoid drinking hot water before going to bed as it would disrupt your sleep with frequent urination.

Puts pressure on the kidney

The kidney as we know has a strong capillary system that flushes excess water and toxins out of the body. Drinking too much hot water will put pressure on the kidneys by increasing the pace at which it functions.

Contains lots of contaminants

Several people believe that hot water is very pure but it’s not completely true. If you’re taking your hot water from the tap, there’s a higher possibility that it has been contaminated.

This is so because hot water dissolves contaminants more than cold water. If the pipes are too old and rusty, lead particles are likely to mix with the water that flows through the pipes.

Causes imbalance of water concentration in the body

Studies have proven that 55-65% of the body system contains water. Drinking water is healthy as it hydrates the body and flushes out some toxins in the body.

Drinking hot water frequently, even when you’re not thirsty can cause an imbalance in the concentration of water in the body, thereby causing dehydration.

Can  affect level of concentration

Studies have shown that if you drink too much hot water when you are not thirsty, chances are that it could affect your concentration levels. Drink only when you have the urge. Too much water can cause brain cells to swell leading to further complications.
