Water is a colorless, transparent, odorless, tasteless liquid that forms the seas, lakes, rivers, and rain and is the basis of the fluids of living organisms.
Regulations promulgated by the Coast Guard Marine Safety Program define “cold water” to mean water where the monthly mean low temperature is normally 59ºF (15ºC) or less.
Drinking cold water has some negative effects on the human body and health. Below are the basic effects of cold water.

1. Robs you of nutrients:


The body’s temperature is 37o C and when you drink something at a very low temperature, your body has to spend energy to regulate its temperature. This spent energy is otherwise used to digest food and absorb nutrients, thereby leaving your body short of nutrition.

2. Cold water causes distress in the tissues and blood vessels.

The body is made up of 70 per cent of warm water. Water is the most important fluid in the body because it is the medium blood uses. It is the medium which circulates nutrients around the body. If the 30 per cent we drink is against the normal temperature of the body, we see how hard it is for the body to make use of it.

3. Chronic diseases:

 Chronic diseases

When we drink ice-cold water, juice, or any ice-cold fluids, we create the basis for chronic diseases.
If you purchase a bowl of cow’s blood at the market to make some famous black pudding, and you put a cube of ice in this blood, observe what happens. This fluid, warm blood becomes thick, sticky, cool, or cold blood and appears to be like jello as it clots.

4. causes indigestion


Because the cold temperatures change the consistency of the foods we’ve eaten, making them more difficult to digest. For example, fatty foods tend to solidify when mixed with cold water, making digestion more difficult. Longer digestion can result in acid reflux problems. Drinking more water than usual can also be problematic because it dilutes the acid that our stomach uses to break down foods, slowing the digestion process.

5. Decreases your heart rate:

 heart rate

Drinking ice water or cold water decreases your heart rate. The vagus nerve mediates the lowering of the heart rate and the low temperatures of ice cold water act as a stimulus to the nerve which causes the heart rate to drop. Studies have shown that drinking ice water stimulates the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve is the 10th cranial nerve and is an important part of the body’s autonomous nervous system that controls involuntary actions of the body.
This does not mean you should not take cold water at all but rather take it with caution, drink cold water when the weather is hot and when you feel like but do not make it a habit.
