Water makes up approximately 60% of your body weight. It's also an essential nutrient, which means your body can't make enough of it through metabolism to meet its daily requirements. To ensure normal physical function, you must obtain it through foods and especially liquids. Water is required by all organs and tissues, and it serves a variety of functions in the body, including:
1. Transportation of nutrients. Water promotes blood circulation, which distributes nutrients to and eliminates waste from your cells.
2. Thermoregulation is a term used to describe how the body regulates its temperature. Water inhibits variations in body temperature in both warm and cold conditions due to its enormous heat capacity.
3. Lubrication of the body. Water is an important component of your body's lubricating fluids, which include saliva, gastric, intestinal, respiratory, and urine mucous.
4. Keep the shapes. Water helps maintain cellular structure, which protects your organs and tissues.
Sweat, breath, urine, and bowel motions all help your body lose water daily. This is known as water outputs. Dehydration can occur if you don't drink enough water throughout the day to compensate for these losses. This system is referred to as water balance, to avoid dehydration, which means that water inputs and outputs must be equal.
Here are 3 healthy reasons why it is important drink water before eating in the morning
1. It helps to treat and prevent skin problems.
Some people assume that increasing their hydration consumption can improve their skin's appearance and health. Water makes up around 30% of the skin, which keeps it plump and improves its suppleness and resilience.
Increased water intake may have a good effect on skin physiology, according to a 2015 study. Participants who generally drank less water appeared more hydrated. Drinking water throughout the day might also aid in the hydration of a person's skin.
2. Improved mental performance.
According to a 2016 study, water has an impact on cognition and mental function, even simple dehydration might have negative consequences on cognition.
The impact of hydration on cognitive performance was studied in a review published in 2019. It was discovered that hydrated study participants had better mental functioning. The findings, however, were not statistically significant, according to the researchers.
3. Drinking water first thing in the morning aids in the elimination of toxins.
Another popular notion is that drinking water first thing in the morning aids in the "flushing out" of pollutants. Your kidneys are the primary fluid balance controllers, and they do need water to remove waste from your bloodstream.
However, the capacity of your kidneys to remove a substance from your body is dictated by the amount of the substance present, not by your water intake or drinking pattern.
When a drug is present in an amount that your kidneys cannot process, it causes a significant volume of urine to be produced. This is known as osmotic diuresis, as opposed to water diuresis, which occurs when you drink too much water.
