    Are there benefits to drinking hot water?

    I've been told that drinking hot water as opposed to cold water can be better for you (detoxification, increases blood circulation, etc) Is this true?

    There is no particular benefit from a urinary tract infection point of view that I am aware of. From a urological point of view, there is no evidence that I am aware of for hot water being better than cold water, and I do not use it as any form of treatment.

    I agree with Dr Haddad.

    If you (say) drink 250 mL of cool (10 C) or hot (30 C) water it will rapidly reach thermal equilibrium (37 C) with the rest of your body within a few minutes of arriving in your stomach - this is well-understood physics.
