Drinking Water the right way!!!

Drinking Water the right way!!!

Water is a basic requirement of life. It gives us a lot of benefits but it is also important that it should be consumed the right way.

Some important rules to remember:

  1. Always drink water at body temperature i.e. warm water at about 37 deg C. Never drink cold water.

  2. Drink at least two big glasses of water in the morning as soon as you wake-up. Make sure that you do not waste your saliva. Drink the water slowly i.e. sip by sip making sure that saliva present in your mouth goes in your stomach with every sip of water.

  3. Never drink water before taking your meal. There should be a gap of at least 48 minutes between your water intake and your meal.

  4. Avoid water intake during your meal. If your food gets stuck in your throat, you can take one or two sip of water to relieve your self.

  5. You can take one to two sip of water during your meal when you exchange your grain. For example if you are eating roti (chapati or bread) and want to have rice after your roti, you must drink some water.

  6. Never drink water after your meal. There should be a gap of atleast 90 minutes between your meal and your water intake.

  7. Never drink water when you are standing. You should sit and enjoy water by taking it sip by sip.

  8. It is always recommended to have some water before you go to your bed at night.

  1. Dear Dinata Misovec , thanks for your querry and interests. I am sorry for late reply.
    The basic reason behind all these rules is making sure that your saliva which is basic in nature not wasted and goes into your stomach to neutralize acid .
    The digestive fluid which is released in stomach is not diluted because of water drunk at wrong time . All these rules will help in proper digestion of food. If food is not digested timely it is rotten/spoiled in stomach and results in generation of gas. By following these rules we can avoid acidity and gastric problems. If you have any other specific question , please let me know.
