Why You Shouldn’t Drink Ice/Chilled Water

Spread the love

 

The term “ice water” refers to water that is extremely cold or chilled to the point where ice cubes or ice have been added to lower its temperature. It is commonly used to describe water that is served with ice or water that has been cooled to a very low temperature.

1. Slows down digestion: Ice water can hinder the absorption of nutrients and the movement of food in the intestines, leading to slowed digestion and potential constipation. Drinking water at room temperature before meals can aid in digestion.

2. Slows down body hydration: When we consume ice water, our body first needs to warm it up to body temperature, which requires energy and may result in water loss instead of efficient hydration.

3. Causes sore throats: Drinking very cold water can lead to the accumulation of mucus in the throat, causing irritation and discomfort.

4. Weakens immune system: Excessive production of mucus due to the coldness of water can weaken the immune system and make us more susceptible to illnesses like the flu.

5. Impedes drug absorption: Ice water may prevent timely absorption of medications, as they often require a liquid solution to be effectively absorbed by the body.

In conclusion, ice water does not provide any benefits to the body. Instead, it can complicate or slow down natural processes and have certain consequences.
