Now, here we must understand that our body works at an approximate temperature of 38.8 C, and more closer the temperature of water that we drink, to this temperature, the lesser work our Blood has to do to get the ingested water to this temperature. This simply implies an optimum level of our Metabolism.
Such a simple solution to stay away from A Doctor’s Clinic for Years!
