I watched this video a while ago on Facebook and it was really eye-opening for me. I learnt that drinking cold water after meals is harmful for your health. It delays the process of emulsification of fat because it solidifies it. This causes the fat to cling to the villi for a longer time, which prevents other important nutrients from being absorbed. Some of the fat gets directly absorbed into the blood stream from the villi. When the fat clings for a longer period of time, more fat gets absorbed into the blood stream. Over time, fat builds up inside the arteries, which causes high blood pressure. This puts a person at a higher risk for a heart attack.
I’ve stopped taking cold water after eating – trust me this was hard because the only time I can stand water is when its cold- I’ve started drinking hot oolong tea with my meals – yup! the struggle is real
