Drinking water at the appropriate time will help your entire body function more efficiently.

The consumption of water too soon after eating may dilute the digestive juices which aid digestion in the stomach. Also, it is not advisable to drink water during a meal, as it may also interfere with the process of digestion.

1

Before you sleep

Dehydration before bed has negative effects on health. It increases the risk of stroke, heart disease, and nervous disorder. The main reason why the blood cells are more concentrated in the morning is that the body is not fully hydrated.

2

When you wake

If you sleep for at least eight hours, you will gradually become dehydrated. Drinking water once you wake in the morning aids the body to absorb nutrients. Also, it aids in colon cleansing.

3

After a meal

Drinking water after a meal speeds up the absorption of nutrients and prevents constipation.
