Water is “the best and cheapest health drink”.
You must drink a glass of water during the following three times/occasions each day:
After getting out of bed, you can drink a glass of water on an empty stomach.
Because of our invisible sweating and urine secretion during sleep, we lose a lot of water. Even if we don’t feel thirsty after getting up, the body liquids will still be thick due to lack of water. Therefore, after getting out of bed, you must slowly add water as soon as possible.
A glass of water after exercise
The right amount of exercise is one of the cornerstones of longevity, especially for the elderly, and more attention should be paid to adequate and reasonable practice. However, after the workout, special attention should be paid to replenishing water. During exercise, sweat takes away electrolytes and consumes more energy. If you don’t pay attention, it is prone to hypoglycemia after the workout, and even cause syncope. Therefore, after the exercise, it is recommended that the old people drink water to which a small pinch of salt and sugar can be added and dissolved if you wish.
A glass of water before going to bed…
When people are asleep, sweat glands are still draining water. When the body’s liquid is reduced too much, the blood viscosity is increased. A cup of water before going to bed can effectively reduce the blood viscosity and may even slow down the appearance of aging. Helps against Angina, myocardial infarction and other diseases.
