Some time ago, we blogged about how drinking water can increase belly health. As the belly (or stomach) is seen as a second brain, keeping it hydrated is vital, contributing to sustained belly and digestive health and indeed, our body’s health overall.
A few benefits of drinking water on an empty stomach are:
Flushes Toxins – helps in flushing out all the toxins from the body, cleansing the system. It’s also a great way in which to kick-start your metabolism.*
Increases Red Blood Cell population – stimulates the red blood cells to populate at a faster rate, an increase in oxygen reaching your cells, which in turn boosts the energy levels of the body.*
Increases Metabolism speed – can mean an increased metabolic rate of around 25%. This can also lead to a faster digestion, aiding a more healthy weight loss.*
Cleanses Your Bowels – drinking water on an empty stomach helps in cleansing your bowels. It creates an urge to move the bowel and therefore helps to regulate your digestive tract.*
Prevents Kidney Stones – water dilutes the acids and prevents the formation of stones in the kidney. Drinking water can also help prevent bladder infections. However, fluid intake must be carefully monitored should a person have a kidney disease or is on a treatment like dialysis. Always consult with a healthcare professional.
Strengthens Immune System – flushing out all the toxins and preventing infections from spreading through the body. This ultimately strengthens the immune system thereby reducing the likelihood of infections.*
