Proper metabolism is the key for all activities in the body. A chemical process where energy is generated from food is metabolism. Proper metabolism happens when digestion, absorption and assimilation are proper.
According to Ayurveda, the main source or Head Office for metabolism is the digestive fire (pachaka agni). This is the power house for all the other agnis is different cells. Keeping this intact and firing is the main approach to stay healthy.
So consuming room temperature water to warm water around the food will assist digestion. As all the metabolic processes happen in the body around body temperature (roughly 38 * Celcius), eat warm food followed by warm to hot water. Cold water kills the fire.
