 our body is made up of 60 fluid drinking enough water is extremely important to keep everything moving in your digestive tract, just think of your colon like a tube imagine that you’re eating all these foods and they go into this tube but there isn’t enough water to push the food down through the tube, hence everything will start to get blocked and eventually harden drinking warm water helps to break down food faster than drinking cold water and helping you to go to the bathroom more easily and reduce constipation, if you’re saying that warm water doesn’t even help you then the next step you can try is to drink a cup of hot coffee for some people including myself consuming coffee can increase the urge to go to the bathroom this is because coffee stimulates the muscles in the digestive system to contract causing a bowel movement.
