Yes: Drinking hot water is just fine for one's health, as long it is not too hot. Water has no fat, no sugar, no salt, and no chemical flavorings/sweeteners, so is good for the body as long as one is not overdoing the water-drinking.

Drinking: water at all comfortable temperatures is NECESSARY for your health. HOT water has no specific remedial qualities except it probably makes better Tea! Hope this is helpful! Dr Z
