A good night's sleep dehydrates your body for a long period, which is why rehydrating with water first thing after waking up is the most important task you should do. Here are the top 5 reasons why.
Staying hydrated increases your level of alertness. Water is a great refresher of red blood cells that pretty much carries oxygen in our blood. Ergo, more water, more oxygen, more energy!
HELPS BRAIN FUNCTION
Science has it that approximately 70% of our brain is made up of water. With that in MIND, drinking enough water in the morning refuels your brain for a better performance.
If you’re following a strict diet, then you should drink water after getting out of bed. Many studies show that doing so with an empty stomach increases your metabolic rate. It’s your chance to take better control of when to unload.
ASSISTS IN DETOXIFYING YOUR BODY
Drinking water helps your body flush out all the toxins that your body naturally casts out while you sleep. This puts your body to a fresh, new, and healthy start.
KIDNEY AND BLADDER INFECTIONS
With less bathroom breaks, kidney stones and bladder infections are most likely to build up during your sleeping time. Drinking water with an empty stomach helps dilutes your stomach fluid, thus preventing the infection build up.
