Drinking Water With Meals: Good Or Bad?
There is this general notion from various unverified sources that it’s totally unsafe to drink water while eating. It has eaten deep in some people mind that some parents don’t allow their children to drink water while eating but after eating, but this has no backing research-wise.
While I was growing up, our school teacher then even advised us never to drink water while eating but some hours after eating, that it dilutes the digestive juices in the body and also makes one feel full when he or she isn’t truly full, but this article is going to totally clear the whole thing.
This article as already stated is going to be answering the question, should we drink water while eating or after eating? Just sit tight and enjoy this piece while still learning something you probably didn’t know before.
1. First of all, you need to understand that there is absolutely no concern medically that water will digest or interfere with digestion. Factually speaking, drinking water during a meal or while eating actually aids Digestion. Right from the mouth, drinking water aids the production of saliva and as such brings about increased digestion.
2. Drinking water while eating also makes it easy for the body to break down food so that the nutrients can be absorbed faster. Drinking while eating also helps prevent choking, especially if you’re eating something very spicy, so it has a myriad of benefits.
Water also softens the stool, thus preventing constipation, so drink water while eating or after eating, it all depends on your choice or the one you can take. Don’t listen to people telling you it will come in the way of digestion or affect the body, those are conspiracy theories and should be given no attention.
