Water is an inorganic, inherently unique substance that determines the existence of life on our planet. She is the basis for all biochemical processes, a universal solvent. This substance is unique, because it can dissolve as inorganicand organic substances.
Throughout life, it accompanies a person, and for the most part our body consists of it. Therefore, it is impossible to live without it.
The article below will talk about why drinking water is good, how to do it right, and why you need to choose certain water in order to get the maximum benefit for the body.
What is the best water to drink?
The question of what kind of water you can drink is relevant for most people. Very often we drink it without thinking about its origin.
However, you should always ensure that the fluid you consume is physically complete and healthy. When discussing whether it is beneficial to drink water of a certain origin, the following factors must be taken into account:
- natural origin is important – it must be mined from an underground source;
- it should not contain any artificial additives;
- important is the absence of deep cleaning by osmosis;
- it is desirable that it be slightly mineralized (0.5-0.75 g / l).
After all, only a liquid of natural origin has all the elements necessary for the body in its composition. Accordingly, it is difficult to find a healthier drink for the body.
Of course, other questions arise during the discussion – for example, which water is better to drink – boiled or raw.
Which water is better to drink: warm or cold
Preference should be given to warm water, in part we have already discussed this issue.
In addition to this topic, I will say that cold water, although it speeds up the metabolism and helps to get rid of excess weight, its constant use will lead to problems with digestion and malfunctioning of the intestines.
Hot water can warm, dilate blood vessels, but it has much more disadvantages: too scalding liquid can lead to oncology of the throat and esophagus, increased gas formation, damage to tooth enamel, and decreased immunity.
But warm water has some advantages: it improves the digestive tract, removes toxins and toxins, and heals the skin.
Which water is better to drink: warm or cold depends on the time of day and on the meal!
In the morning on an empty stomach, it is useful to drink clean cold (but not ice-cold) water: distilled, purified through a filter. Cold purified water activates intestinal motility and helps to remove accumulated toxins from the body.
I listened to Dr. Skachko’s interesting arguments about water and I want to convey them to you.
Pure water is excellent for purification, but you should not use it throughout the day, as it can only get into an empty stomach, otherwise it will disrupt digestion: it dilutes gastric juice, digestion is disturbed, decay processes begin, fermentation occurs in the intestines. It turns out that there is little health benefit from such water, it just cleanses the body – it gets into the bloodstream and immediately excreted through the kidneys.
If we drank a glass of water before eating, we cannot eat for an hour. And after the digestion process – not the end of the meal, but the end of digestion, an hour must also pass, only then it will be possible to drink a glass of pure water.
Warm water does not activate intestinal peristalsis, but activates the excretory capacity of the skin and lungs.
But the body needs not only cleansing, but also nutrition. Therefore, honey, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar can be added to the water. Such water both purifies and nourishes – it works like two in one, but you need to drink it warm.
And it is not entirely true when they say that you need to drink only 2 liters of pure water a day. Water in tea, compote, soup should also be included in this amount.
Water with food is better absorbed and the power of water flow into the body increases dramatically. Juice, soup, tea, compote enrich the blood with useful trace elements. Water in this form is easier to drink and maintain water exchange than pure water devoid of salts.
In addition, if you cannot drink water during meals, since it dilutes the gastric juice and the digestion of food worsens, then you can drink tea, juice during meals, as well as after meals.
Which water is healthier – boiled or raw?
Since raw water contains many trace elements in the form of salts, it is best to drink it. The molecules in it are arranged in a peculiar way. That is why raw water is sometimes called living water. It promotes cell regeneration, prevents the formation in the body free radicals… However, it is often necessary to boil water, as the unrefined raw liquid can contain toxic substances and harmful bacteria…
However, boiled water is practically useless for the body. Moreover, she is even harmful, so sometimes she is even called “dead.” This name is associated with the following factors:
- after boiling, the oxygen content decreases significantly;
- beneficial to the body salt during boiling, precipitate into an insoluble precipitate;
- if you boil tap water, then chlorine, which it contains, turns into toxic compounds, which can subsequently provoke the development of oncological pathologies;
- since after boiling the structure changes, then after about a day bacteria begin to multiply in it.
But, discussing the issues of how “dead” water is useful, whether boiled water can be consumed, its benefits and harms should be adequately assessed. After all, there is always a very urgent issue of safety, and no one can guarantee that the raw does not contain harmful and even dangerous for …
