Drinking Water, that is.What’s the easiest, cheapest way to improve your health?
Drink 1 or 2 glasses of purified water as soon as you wake up in the morning!Yes, before your coffee, before you brush your teeth, before you get the morning paper. Why do it? You’ve gone 8 hours without hydrating. That’s never good for our bodies or our general health. And it’s much easier for our bodies to absorb the water on an empty stomach. The Japanese have even made a practice of it known as water therapy. It’s simple – drink 2 glasses of pure, room temperature water upon waking up. Then do your morning routine. Pure and simple. (Note too much water can be too much of a good thing, though, so limit your water intake to no more than 3 glasses at a time!) Heck, the Japanese think it can cure just about anything that ails you. We won’t go that far, but as a readily available, healthy, free choice, why not try it today?

Get Better Water. Today.
Here are the top 3 (plus a bonus) benefits of drinking water before breakfast:
- You’ll kick-start your brain. Your brain is 75% water, and it has just gone 8 hours without getting any. Rehydrate those brain cells and watch your brain power soar!
- You’ll have far more energy. All day long. Even slight dehydration saps us of our energy levels. Starting out your day dehydrated leaves you playing catch up all day. Start out right and get your hydration on!
- You’ll get that fresh from the spa glow. Unless you can drink the water from the fountain of youth, drinking water won’t turn back the aging clock. But it will help improve rough dry skin, a common side-effect of even slight dehydration. It’s like giving your skin a shower from the inside out!
- You may even lose some weight! The jury is still out on the idea that pure water removes the toxins that cause weight gain (probably not, actually.) However, nearly all dietitians recommend drinking more water as part of any weight loss program. Why? Drinking a glass of water helps you to feel fuller, so you may eat less. It helps rev up your metabolism (some say cold water does this better – but any temp water helps) and as a no-calorie drink, it hydrates without adding any extra empty calories to your diet.
