3 Principles of Water Intake

Who doesn’t want the glowing skin, shinier hair and younger body?! I’m sure, everyone wants all of three. At least for once we all think about it while snooping ourselves in front of the mirror and almost every one of us also knows that who is the elixir of life, beauty and youth? Yes, it is water, but do you know the principles of consuming it? Every so often we repeat the same mistakes while consuming it. Know three simple rules of drinking water to make the most of this magical gift of God.

Rule 1: Morning Call of Water

The consumption of a glass of warm water in the morning can make you experience the magical outcomes.

Reason

Its first outcome is aroused gastro-colic effects. Second, it helps removing the intestinal waste.

Note: Its unimaginably beneficial if one take lemon water instead of the plain.

Rule 2: Water Intake: Before and After Meal

Water intake habits during meal matters a lot to the health

Consume water 15-20 minutes before and about two hours after meal.

Reason

  • If we intake water during meal, it dilutes the digestive juice, slowing down the churning process of food in the stomach. This practice results in hampering the digestion.
  • Abundant supply of water during meal leads to distended stomach, which disturbs its tone.

Note: In case of no control over thirst, sip water little by little.

Rule 3: Eating Habits and Thirst

Consume a healthy and balanced diet; avoid salty, frosty or peppery food and overeating.

Reason

  • Salty, frosty or peppery foods arouse false sensation of dehydration, making one thirsty.
  • In case of over eating, the blood supply to stomach increases, compromising other parts. It gives a sense of strong thirst, which is a false call of water in reality.

Daily Water Intake Chart for Various Age Groups

The requirement and recommendation of water differs person to person. It depends on age, weight, height, weather conditions and work level: low, moderate or high. Thus, there can’t be a specific rule or parameter for how much water should be consumed per day. Still after an intense research Brisk Post brings the correct recommended water intake charts for men and women at different age, which suggest generalized standards about water consumption.
