There is no denying that water is good for you, but have you heard of the growing health trend, where you drink water right after waking? Everyone has a preference; some people like tea, some like coffee, some juice, and some even prefer soda but what about water?
Drinking water when you wake up has been linked to the curing as well as the prevention of certain diseases and ailments like arthritis, headaches, body aches, heart problems, epilepsy, tuberculosis, meningitis, kidney disease, vomiting, constipation and more.
The human body is made up of water, 70% water to be specific. Your muscles are also made up of water 75% and your blood 82%. Water is significant when it comes to making sure your body is functioning properly. Drinking water before you have anything to eat helps to purify your body’s internal systems. As a matter of fact, this can aid in colon cleansing, so that the nutrients that enter the body will be absorbed better.
It encourages the production of hematopoiesis, which is also known as new blood. This “new blood” will help the body restore itself, eventually curing diseases.
It also makes your skin look healthier; removing toxins from the blood and this can result in better looking, glowing skin. Water first thing in the morning helps balance the lymphatic system. The lymph glands are responsible for fighting infections, they also help to steady the fluids within the body.
While you sleep your body repairs itself, replenishes energy and balances hormones. The result is toxins and other waste materials being released and waiting to be flushed out. So do your body a favor, keep water on your nightstand and before your feet even touch the floor drink a liter of water. You will thank me for it!
