That's what happens when you drink water on an empty stomach

Вот что происходит, когда вы пьете воду натощак

Water is the most important element that supports life on our planet. To be healthy and look good, you need to drink it in an amount sufficient for the body. Water consumption formula for women: weight ∗ 0.03 + load in hours ∗ 0.4 = water in liters. For example: a woman weighs 60 kg, plays sports for 1 hour a day: 60 kg * 0.03 + 1 * 0.4 = 2.2 liters. Formula for men: weight * 0.04 + load in hours * 0.6 = water in liters. Unfortunately, according to recent surveys of sociologists, only a small part of the population adheres to this norm.

Japanese culture has one wonderful tradition - to drink water in the morning on an empty stomach immediately after waking up .

Research confirms the many benefits of this habit. The main thing is the anti-aging effect. There is also evidence that the habit of drinking water before breakfast can help cure a number of chronic diseases: headaches, tachycardia, epilepsy, bronchitis, asthma, tuberculosis, meningitis, kidney and urinary tract diseases, gastritis, diarrhea, hemorrhoids, constipation and vision problems . Women can also count on solving problems with menstrual irregularities.
