Whenever you get a health scare, no matter which part of your body is having trouble- the first advice by your physician would be to drink more water. Every health addict seems to be obsessed with water and there’s a good reason why.
Here are some benefits you have when you drink water on empty stomach in the morning:
It is a really convenient way of getting a part of your minimum requirement. And at the same time, you prevent the problems you face because of drinking water with meals. A practice which dilutes the digestive juices in your body and thus hinders the process.
2. Helps with your heartburn.
Heartburn occurs because of the presence of acid in our stomachs. During the day food can cross-check the effect of this acid. But in the morning, with an empty stomach, water is your best chance of getting rid of those nasty burning sensations.
3. Helps with constipation.
Drinking a slightly warm glass of water will help your digestive tract get back on track. Water helps in softening the rather dry stool which is the main trouble with constipation.
4. Helps your body function.
Water is immensely critical for your overall health. Without the proper amount of fluid in your system, your food won’t get properly digested, the nutrients won’t reach all the cells adequately and so on and so forth. Getting a glass right in the morning can help your body in a big way.
5. Water helps you with your diet goals.
When you are full of water, you have a lesser amount of space (and cravings) for unhealthy calories. So making sure you are getting enough water will actually help you in avoiding all the junk food that keeps tempting you.
6. It is also great for your skin.
Dermatologists all over the world recommend drinking enough water so that your skin doesn’t get dull and dry. Like every other part of your body, your skin too needs a healthy amount of water to function well. If there’s too much fluid loss on the surface of your skin, you’d look wrinkled and aged.
7. Helps with a hangover.
Who doesn’t like a night of partying and drinking? But no one likes the hangover on the morning after. Mixing water with your drinks can help you prevent all those nasty symptoms of a hangover. Dry mouth, headache etc. is caused because alcohol makes your body dehydrated. Prevent that and you’d be good to go.
It is also good for your muscles, which shrivel up when there’s not enough water. That will lead to muscle fatigue and bring an early end to your exercise routine. Prepare in advance, drink more water an hour or so before you start your workout.
If just one time in a day can be so beneficial, imagine how good it’d be if you actually took the proper recommended amount of this elixir on a daily basis.
