How should I drink the first glass of water in the morning?

After experiencing the sadness of touching and parting from bed all morning, a large number of people will choose to drink a glass of water to start a new day.

I have heard many articles saying that the first glass of water to get up early is very important. So,

Do you have to drink this water?

If you drink, will it affect breakfast?

People with bad intestines and stomach should pay attention to what when drinking water?

How should people who exercise in the morning drink?

For ordinary healthy people, is it good to drink what water? How much?

Now, let’s talk about drinking water in the morning.

Do you want to drink water in the morning?

Although we don’t drink water or eat during sleep, breathing, perspiration and urination are still in progress. These physiological activities consume a lot of water. Although we don’t feel thirsty after getting up, our blood will still be sticky due to lack of water.

Drinking water can reduce blood viscosity and increase circulating blood volume, especially if you feel thirsty when you get up early, drinking water is quite good.

Some people may ask, can I drink water on an empty stomach in the morning? Will it dilute gastric juice and affect breakfast?

In fact, this is an unnecessary worry. If you drink some water in the morning, no more than 200 milliliters at a time, the digestion and absorption of breakfast will not have a what effect. On the contrary, if the water in the body reaches a balance, it can also ensure sufficient secretion of digestive juice during eating, stimulate appetite and help digestion.

Should I drink what for the first glass of water in the morning?

Step 1: Honey Water

Some people especially advocate getting up early and drinking honey water on an empty stomach to [moisten the bowels and relieve constipation].

However, there are two prerequisites for achieving the effect: first, your body [fructose intolerance], which is determined by genes; Second, you should drink enough honey. A cup of honey water is not enough, at least tens of grams. Are you really not afraid of a long month and a half?

For most people, the laxative effect of drinking a cup of honey water is estimated to be no obvious difference from drinking plain boiled water, and it is not conducive to the stability of blood sugar in diabetics.

Therefore, it is not recommended.

2. Light brine

Getting up early to drink saline will continue to aggravate the body’s water shortage.

The salt intake of Chinese residents generally exceeds the standard, and they also need to drink light salt water to take in more salt. Isn’t this a matter? Especially for people with hypertension, heart disease and renal dysfunction, don’t drink it.

Therefore, it is not recommended either.

3. Others (coffee, milk, soybean milk, fruit juice, etc.)

Some people may say, these drinks also contain water, can they replace water?

If you don’t feel uncomfortable after drinking, you can drink it, but there is also a reason to let you drink water.

In particular, attention should be paid to the following situations:

    People suffering from gastrointestinal diseases such as gastric ulcer, duodenal ulcer, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and recovery period of gastrointestinal surgery, After drinking coffee, people who will suffer from acid regurgitation, heartburn and other discomfort are not recommended to drink coffee on an empty stomach. Milk is not recommended for people who are lactose intolerant. There are also some drinks, such as fruit juice sold in supermarkets, which contain amazing sugar content. Long-term use of these drinks instead of drinking water may lead to a decrease in the overall amount of drinking water.

Therefore, it is still not recommended…

4. Plain boiled water

Let you drink more [plain boiled water] is really not indifferent to you, because plain boiled water is the best choice.

Plain boiled water is safe, sanitary and easily available. It will neither increase energy intake nor cause [sugar] excess.

At this moment, someone must ask, which is better, cold water or hot water?

In fact, as long as you don’t burn, you like to drink what and drink what, really don’t pay so much attention. There are soft mucous membranes on the surface of oral cavity and esophagus. The highest temperature they can tolerate is only 50 ~ 60 ℃. If the temperature of water is too high, there will be a risk of scalding.

In short, for most people, cold boiled water and warm boiled water can be drunk, depending on personal preference.

The Three Highlights of Drinking Water in the Morning

1. How much water is good for getting up early and drinking on an empty stomach?

< < Dietary Guidelines for Chinese Residents (2016 Edition) > > It is recommended that healthy people over 2 years old can drink 1 cup (200ml) of water on an empty stomach after getting up in the morning.

For special groups such as the elderly and children, if it is difficult to drink 200 milliliters (1 cup) of water at one time, they can also drink a small amount of water for many times, such as drinking it 2-3 times, each time 50-100 milliliters.

In addition, it is recommended that patients suffering from kidney diseases or some metabolic diseases decide the amount of water to drink under the guidance of doctors, so as not to burden the body and aggravate the original diseases.

In short, attention should be paid to avoid drinking too much water at one time, which will affect digestion, or increase the burden on kidney and heart, etc., and [drink] within our capabilities.

2. People with bad intestines and stomach should pay attention to what when drinking water?

People with poor stomach and intestines should try to avoid choosing strong tea, coffee and other drinks.

If the secretion of gastric juice is seriously insufficient, special attention should also be paid not to drink too much water at one time, so as not to dilute gastric juice and affect digestion.

3. How should people who exercise in the morning drink?

It is necessary to drink water before morning exercise.

It is generally recommended to drink a cup (200ml) of water after getting up. Before running, you can also drink some sports drinks to supplement energy appropriately.

If you run for more than half an hour, replenish water in time to avoid dehydration.

Let’s recite a poem: from tomorrow on, be a person who drinks plain boiled water on an empty stomach, and refuse all drinks and salt water.
