Are you fond of iced drinks to stay cool in summer time? Wrong choice, say experts. Take a cup of hot tea or coffee instead! Cool drinks will lower your body temperature for a few minutes. If you take a hot beverage you will feel cooler for a longer time. Baffled? If you consume a hot drink your core body temperature shoots up. This makes you sweat a lot. When the sweat on your body evaporates, your skin becomes cooler. Ushnam Ushnena Shanthi, goes the saying in Sanskrit. Eating fiery foods also make you sweat and eventually bring down your body temperature.
So, just go for a glass of warm water or hot beverage whenever you want to beat the heat!
