When To Drink Water

Out of the 6 classes of nutrients (Carbohydrate (CHO), Protein (PRO), Fat, Water, Vitamins and Minerals), water being the most vital nutrients in our body. Based on researchers, water has four functions: solvent, transportation, lubricant and coolant. Recently, water is found that it can reverse the deposition of foreign pollutants in our body. Oooh!

I received this interesting and informative email from my beloved sister today and I wanted to share it with you. We all need to consume water to flush out the toxins in our body.

Best Time to drink water is...

2 glasses of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion
1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure
1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack

How much water should we drink everyday?

    H2O does your body good
  • Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day (about 1.9 liters)
  • The Institute of Medicine advises that men consume roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) of total beverages a day and women consume 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of total beverages a day.
