1 Feb 2023

Drinking water is something that humans must do, because the human body cannot live without water.

There are many different opinions on what water should be drunk in the first glass of water in the morning.

Honey water

Many people like to drink a glass of honey water in the morning on an empty stomach, it is good for people with constipation, because honey water can have a laxative effect and help defecation.

If you are a diabetic, you should not drink honey water early in the morning as it will increase the risk of blood glucose, which is not good for blood glucose control.

If you drink honey water after waking up early, you will lose your appetite, which will affect the breakfast intake and affect the body's nutrient absorption.

Light salt water

Some people say that getting up in the morning and drinking a glass of light salt water can kill harmful bacteria in the mouth.

However, the salt intake of each person in three meals a day is already high, and according to medical data, the human body cannot consume more than 6 grams of salt per person per day.

If you choose light salt water for the first cup in the morning, it will easily lead to excessive daily salt intake, and long-term high-salt state will easily lead to increased blood pressure and increase the risk of high blood pressure .

Plain water

In fact, many people who know how to maintain health know that the first glass of water in the morning is the best for the human body, because:

1. Plain water comes from tap water after high-temperature sterilization, which does not contain any harmful microorganisms.

2. Plain boiled water is zero-calorie, does not contain any protein, fat and carbohydrates, is easily and quickly absorbed and digested by the body, and can dilute the blood to promote blood circulation.

3. When you wake up in the morning, the human brain is still in a state of being awake. Plain water can promote the brain to wake up quickly and resume operation , but also can quickly replenish the body due to long sleep and the lack of water.

Some Tips

1. Drink water after brushing your teeth

Although many people have the habit of drinking water in the morning, they prefer to drink water as soon as they wake up.

But have you ever thought that drinking water in this way will cause harmful bacteria in the mouth to enter the digestive tract with the water, which will affect your health.

The correct approach is to drink water after brushing your teeth, so that you don’t have to worry about bacteria in your mouth entering the digestive tract and can effectively replenish the lack of water in your body.

Drink warm water

Although drinking water in the morning is a good habit, there are also rules for choosing the temperature of water, early drinking too hot water will damage the esophageal mucous membrane, in the long run will increase the risk of esophageal cancer.

And drinking too cold water can damage the stomach mucous membranes, resulting in sudden contraction of capillaries in the stomach, easy to cause gastrointestinal discomfort and even diarrhea.

The most correct choice in the morning is to drink warm water, which is generally water that does not burn the mouth and does not irritate the stomach, and the water temperature is generally around 35 degrees Celsius. After cleaning the mouth in the morning, sip a glass of warm water slowly, and stick to it every day.
