Foods that increase body temperatureBy Harshita Sehgal - 8 January 2020
Food has a direct impact on our body for example the ones rich in fat, protein, and carbohydrates often heat up the body. So to keep the body calm during summers one must avoid the following food items.
Ginger is used as a spice and is known for improving body’s circulation, which increases body’s temperature as well. Its thermogenic properties are the reason why it regulates body temperature.
• Brown rice
As brown rice is more complex carbohydrate so it’s metabolized more slowly, which warms you up as you digest.
Peanuts are high in Vitamin B3 and are also considered as warming food because of their ability to increase blood circulations and speeding up metabolism.
• Iced water
Shocking isn’t it? Whenever you drink water with some ice cubes it automatically increase your body temperature. As you sip down the cold water your body runs up the liquid to your normal temperature.
When you drink beer you sweat a lot and it leads to frequent urination, which eventually makes your body dehydrated. Consumption of alcohol makes you feel the heat in the body.
• Ice cream
We often eat ice cream during summers to feel cool, but it instead heats our body. The food items which have fat, protein etc in large amount, take time to digest and the body uses a great energy This increases the temperature of the body
