A health trend argues that if you want to be healthier, you should drink water as soon as you wake up in the morning.
However, You may be wondering if and to what extent drinking water as soon as you wake up in the morning makes a real difference to your health.
See what Rania Batayneh says about it, nutritionist and author of The One One One Diet:
Six to eight hours of recommended night sleep is a long period when you do not need to drink water. However, drinking one or two glasses of water as soon as you wake up, is a good way to quickly hydrate your body, says Batayneh. "Most people drink coffee first thing in the morning. Although it is a good source of antioxidants, coffee is also dehydrating. You can compensate for this with a glass of water before drinking coffee in the morning ".
2. Vigilance and energy
"One of the biggest signs of lethargy or low energy is that you are dehydrated", says Batayneh. "Because water helps regulate both the body and the brain, is also closely related to the balancing of the mood ". After so many hours without food or drink, The first thing you eat in the morning can be a kind of shock to the body. If this first thing is cool water, will awaken the body to raise low energy levels.
3. Brain function
In terms of daily productivity, hydration is vital. The human brain is made up of 73% water, says Batayneh, so being well hydrated is a prerequisite for maintaining optimal brain activity. Of course, this is an all day process, but starting with a glass of water as soon as you wake up is a step in the right direction, she says.
When you sleep, your body is in a state of repair and recovery, says Batayneh. During this period, your immune system is difficult to eliminate toxins from the body. Drinking enough water, you can speed up the process by which your body flushes out these toxins. Except for the brain, many more body parts, like the heart, the kidneys and lungs, are favored by good hydration.
The essential carbohydrates and proteins you consume on a daily basis are metabolized and transported through water throughout the body.. Having enough water in your system will help increase your metabolism, says Batayneh and can also help with your diet. "When we are not hydrated enough, we can misinterpret thirst with hunger, something that makes us eat more ", says.
