Cold water or room temperature? What physicians advise to choose, summer
Even though it seems to us that summer is the best choice for a cold drink, just removed from the refrigerator or even with ice cubes, doctors advise us to give up this habit.
The reason: First, because it lowers the ability of neck defense. "In addition, if what he introduces is very cold, the body will use energy to heat it. It is possible after a first cooling effect to feel too hot, "nutritionist Serban Damian explained.
The optimal conditions, studies say, you get them if food and water are between 20 and 27 degrees Celsius. Physicians insist you do not even consume anything below 10 degrees, even if it is cold.
The body perceives the very cold sensation of food starting at the temperature of ten degrees. Below this threshold, it is good to avoid consuming liquids or solid foods.
Too cold foods cause the larynx to move slower than normal, while swallowing. This is a natural protective mechanism.
"If the senses are overly stimulated, too cold or too warm, it goes from the perceptible heat effect that causes pain, when you eat too cold you will feel painful because it is a hyperstimulation of the nervous receptors," added Dr. Serban Damian .
It results in diminishing the natural taste.
With regard to liquids, including refrigerator makers, it is advisable to keep them on the inner shelves on the door at 7-8 degrees. Once you get rid of them, give them a respite of at least 15 minutes at room temperature.
