Ways to drink water and their benefits

Do's and Don'ts to drink water:

Use copper Bottle
Drink water sitting down
Do not drink water using straw
  • You should not stand and drink water

Don’t we all relate to this?
We all have the habit of getting home and drinking water right away, often standing. Since we all believe that there is nothing wrong that water can do, we don’t give it a thought how we are having it standing or sitting

Well, wake up to the reality!!!
When you have water standing up, you don’t get the required nutrition. Water, if not consumed in the right manner, can be very bad for you and put you at risk of potential health problems.
When you drink water standing up, the water which goes inside, passes through the system with a straight gush, not really reaching the organs where it is supposed to do the job. Hence, the impurities which are supposed to go out get deposited in the kidneys and the bladder.
And worst, drinking water this way doesn’t actually quench your thirst. Since the water goes directly through, the requires nutrients and vitamins don’t reach the liver and digestive tract.

  • NEVER drink your water through straw or from the top

Drinking water through the straw or from the top can lead to excessive or repetitive air swallowing ie Aerophagia.

AEROPHAGIA- It is a medical term for excessive and repetitive air swallowing which produces uncomfortable gastrointestinal symptoms. These symptoms include abdominal detention, bloating and flatulence.

  • Drink water after sitting down

There is a very valid reason to sit down and gulp your water, the same way it is recommended that you sit down and have your meal. Our bodies are designed in a way that you get maximum health benefits when you sit down and keep your back erect. When you drink your water from a bottle or a glass sitting down, the nutrients reach the brain and boost its activity. It also aids better digestion this way and ensures that you don’t feel bloated after having water. Drinking water this way passes through the regular designed track and ensures all the benefits are achieved in the organs. Toxins go away, impurities are flushed out and your health improves overall!

As per the old Indian culture, water should always be consumed while one is seated than standing. This helps in proper and efficient absorption and distribution of the water consumed
