It’s a hot day, you’ve been outside sweating in your garden and you just need to cool off. Do you reach for some ice water? If so, you may want to rethink what you’re doing. You may not realize what you’re doing to your body!
1. Cold water shrinks your blood vessels and impedes digestion and hydration.
2. Instead of using energy to digest food, your body must focus on warming the water you’ve consumed until it can be used. This can actually result in water loss, thus causing dehydration.
