7 Things That Might Happen If You Drink a Glass of Water First Thing in the Morning Yes, before coffee.

Your normal a.m. routine goes something like this: Wake up, check Instagram, make a beeline to your coffee machine. But starting your day with a glass of water instead actually has tons of good-for-you health benefits. (Don’t worry, you can still get your caffeine fix immediately after.)

1. It Can Improve Your Metabolism
Drinking water (approximately 20 ounces) can increase your metabolic rate by 30 percent, according to a study in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. Having a glass on an empty stomach helps put your body on a path toward more efficient digestion the moment you start your day.


2. It Can Help Alleviate Heartburn and Indigestion
When you sip a glass first thing in the morning, it cleanses any food acids from your esophagus that worked their way upward while you slept. (It also helps flush acids off your teeth.)

3. It Can Prevent Kidney Stones

Drinking water first thing is key to diluting the substances in your urine that can cause kidney stones to form. But remember: Your water intake should amount to at least a half gallon a day to really ward them off, experts say. (Adding a slice of lemon—rich in citric acid—also helps, FYI.)


4. It Can Stop a Headache in Its Tracks

Dehydration is one of the leading causes of that throbbing pain in your skull. Think of a glass of water first thing in the morning as a measure that helps prevent a headache from developing. (Just be sure you keep sipping throughout the day.)



5. It Helps Flush Toxins from the Body

It’s all about keeping your small intestine hydrated and your body’s water balance in check. Your gastric emptying rate (i.e., how much you pee) is accelerated by how much water you consume. The more you pee, the more toxins you flush out. Simple as that.

6. It Keeps Things Moving, Too

Yep, a glass of water on an empty stomach also helps regulate your digestion (ahem, your bowel movements) so you get it out of the way first thing.

7. It Can Keep You from Getting Sick
To dodge a cold or the flu, you need to keep your lymphatic system—a vital part of your immune system—hydrated. A glass of water in the morning will help ward off congestion and ensure proper (and efficient) drainage.

Funk this is spot on and I know from recent experience exactly why this blog is so correct.

I am in advance age and over the past twenty years I had been experiencing ever increasing cramping issues, especially leg cramps at night.

A month or so ago in the middle of night I was awakened with an attack which became so severe it resulted in a fall against the door which knocked me unconscious.

I realized I suffered from having become dehydrated and started a new regimen of doing just what this blog advises.

I haven't suffered any lasting cramps in over four weeks.

Yes, my friend when I discovered this piece I was thinking about you and wanted to share it with you. Execute, enjoy life and remember the positive effects of H2O.

H2O might not be enough, try taking Potassium. I was drinking water trying to relieve leg and feet cramps and my mother told me to start taking Potassium. Only time I have cramps now is when I forget to take that pill.

Good info right there as we age, just to add to that reduce your process foods and process sugar intake. The best investment you can have at any age is taking care of yourself and eating healthy.
