3 Reasons Water Should Be Your Go-To Morning Drink
1. Increase Your Energy Levels Water increases our red blood cell counts, and also increases the oxygen we receive to the brain. The increase in oxygen will create more alertness and energy so you can start your morning off right. By starting your morning off with water instead of coffee or tea, you are also saving your stomach from acid build up or reflux. It is recommended to drink water before having food and coffee. 2. Boost Your Metabolism For some, weight loss can be a very slow and daunting process. By boosting your metabolic rate, you are increasing the rate at which calories are burned. According to WebMD.com, after drinking 17 ounces of water, men and women saw an increase of approximately 30% to their metabolism. Water also makes you feel full and can remove the by-products of fat cells. 3. Help Ease Aches and Pains Drinking water helps to lubricate and cushion joints. Drinking enough water daily can also help to remove acid wastes that can build up in the body. Drinking water in the morning can help with back pain, joint pain and even arthritis so you feel better throughout the day. Water helps with chronic headaches. Typically headaches are caused by unintentional dehydration. It can also be as a result of electrolyte imbalance. By drinking the appropriate amount of water, you can help balance out your fluids and aide in easing headaches and other pains.
