Start Your Day with a Glass of Water
It has long been known that drinking water first thing in the morning purifies the body’s internal systems. This practice, known “early morning water treatment,” originates from ancient Ayurvedic medicine as well.
Drinking at least 16 ounces (500 millilitres) of warm water on an empty stomach re-hydrates the body after eight hours of sleep, jump-starts your metabolism, and helps to flush out the toxins your body packaged up over night. Some of this water might not be absorbed, but that’s okay. The main reason for drinking so much water at once is to cleanse the colon and enable your body to absorb new nutrients from food.
