Your body is composed of roughly 60% water1. That means when we are dehydrated – and most of us spend our days constantly dehydrated to some degree – we are affecting the performance of the majority of our body. Nearly all of our systems do not function as well without the proper water intake.

Water removes toxins and waste products from the body thereby cleansing it. Water is required to process all the nutrients from the food we eat and carry the assimilated nutrients to the cells by circulating through the lymphatic system. Lack of water in the body can cause constipation, asthma, allergy, hypertension, migraine and many other health problems. Every day we lose water through perspiration, urine, breath and bowel movements. Thus, it is important to replenish the body by drinking water and consuming beverages and foods that contain water.

Drinking water on an empty stomach will help flush your bowels and clears any waste in your body, helps release toxins from the body via urination, increases appetite and prevents headaches. It is the best way to cleanse the colon. Drinking 8 oz of water a day can raise your metabolic rate by at least 24%. It also helps you lose weight and boost immunity.

Whether you are hungry or full drinking water on an empty stomach always has its benefits:

  • Improves metabolism– Drinking water on an empty stomach can increase the speed of metabolism by as much as 24%. Increased metabolism means greater digestive system. Also, drinking water immediately after waking up cleanses the colon, and thus the absorption of nutrients is easier.
  • Acts for healthy weight loss– When you drink water on an empty stomach, your body will get rid of toxins and digestion will improve. You will feel less hungry and the desire to eat will decrease.
  • Reduces heartburn and indigestion– Indigestion is caused by increased acidity in the stomach. You suffer from heartburn when the acid refluxes into your esophagus. When you drink water on an empty stomach, these acids are pushed down and get diluted, solving the problem.

After 45 minutes you can normally eat and drink. After the breakfast, lunch and dinner do not eat or drink anything for two hours.

Those that are old and sick and unable to drink 4 glasses of water on an empty stomach, can begin with drinking water as much as they can, and then each and every day increase the amount until they reach the required 640ml .
