Water is an integral part of the body, and one thing we can do to help its proper functioning is drink 7 to 8 glasses of water a day. In these 7 to 8 glasses we don’t count just water, but foods which contain a high percentage of water as well. 70% of the human body is water, and this makes it clear that the intake of water plays a very important role in maintaining normal bodily functions. 75% of the muscles, 25% of the bones and 82% of the blood is made of water. We all know how healthy is to drink some water in the morning when we get up, before eating or drinking anything else. In this way we cleanse the body, especially the bowels which then can better absorb nutrients from the food.

It cleans the face
Water will improve the eliminating of toxins from the body, which you will first notice on the skin, especially the face.
It helps the building of body cells
If you drink water in the morning you will reduce the time necessary for the body to build cells and muscle tissue.

Lymph glands help us fight against infections, and by drinking water on an empty stomach you will improve their work too. The lymphatic system is also important in maintaining a balanced level of fluids in the body.
It helps with different diseases and conditions
By drinking water on an empty stomach you can mitigate vomiting, sore throat, diarrhea, diseases of the kidney and the urinary system, meningitis, tuberculosis, arthritis and headaches.
