Three Things To Remember When Drinking Water

These three tips will help you get the best out of your water

1. Avoid Bottled Water

According to several studies, bottled water is frequently contaminated with microplastics - small pieces of plastic waste less than five millimeters in size. According to research compiled by Orb Media, 93 percent of the 11 bottled water brands tested had traces of microplastics. Scientists have discovered evidence of Microplastic pollution in human blood in almost 80% of those studied.

Not only can these particles travel throughout the body, but they may also become lodged in organs. In fact, people unknowingly consume them through food and water or by inhaling them.

Boil water, even if it comes from a plastic container. Store the boiled water in an earthen pot.

A lot of what we consume turns acidic in our body and produces toxins. Clay is alkaline, so it interacts with acidic foods to establish the correct pH balance. Therefore keeping the acidity and gastric-related problem away. Water stored in a clay pot is free of chemicals, thus drinking clay pot water everyday can improve metabolism. This can also help digestion due to the minerals present in water.

Drink water from a; silver glass, brass utensil and copper glass (in moderation). The presence of these soft metals also alkalizes the water. Steel and glass are non-porous, so they won't leech chemicals into your water.

2. Avoid Gulping Water

Contrary to popular belief, drinking large gulps of water does not help improve hydration. When you drink too fast, the toxins that are supposed to be filtered out by your kidneys and bladder get deposited there instead. Drinking water slowly and taking small sips can help in strengthening your digestive system and improve your metabolism.

3. Drink Water at Room Temperature

Drinking water at room temperature can help in better digestion and absorption. Our body is programmed to function best at 37 degrees Celsius, which is also the ideal temperature for drinking water. When we drink cold water, it slows down our digestive system and makes it harder for our bodies to absorb nutrients.
