Water - A Holy Drink

Benefits of Drinking Water
Drinking water in empty stomach in the morning can be immensely beneficial for the body. 

A few simple steps can go a long way in taking care of our health, and one easy way of ensuring it is by drinking sufficient water in empty stomach first thing in the morning. Not only does it clear your stomach, it goes a long way in reducing the risk of a number of diseases.

Water Helps Keep Skin Looking Good - "Dehydration makes your skin look more dry and wrinkled, which can be improved with proper hydration. "But once you are adequately hydrated, the kidneys take over and excrete excess fluids.
Water Can Help Control Calories. For years, dieters have been drinking lots of water as a weight loss strategy. While water doesn't have any magical effect on weight loss, substituting it for higher calorie beverages can certainly help.

Water Helps Energize Muscles - Cells that don't maintain their balance of fluids and electrolytes shrivel, which can result in muscle fatigue. "When muscle cells don't have adequate fluids, they don't work as well and performance can suffer."
During exercise, it is recommended to start drinking fluids early, and drink them at regular intervals to replace fluids lost by sweating.
Water Helps Maintain Normal Bowel Function - Adequate hydration keeps things flowing along your gastrointestinal tract and prevents constipation. When you don't get enough fluid, the colon pulls water from stools to maintain hydration and the result is constipation.
"Adequate fluid and fiber is the perfect combination, because the fluid pumps up the fiber and acts like a broom to keep your bowel functioning properly.
It could aid weight loss - Anyone looking to lose weight could be helped by increasing their water intake. Studies have found that when participants drink water before a meal, they lose weight faster than those who did not drink water. Extra water helps us eat less by making us feel full, and it may also boost metabolism
It might protect against some types of cancer - Research has found that the greater the fluid intake, the lower the incidence of bladder cancer, with more significant results when the fluid is water. One possible reason could be that urinating more frequently prevents the buildup of bladder carcinogens. Staying hydrated may also reduce the risk of colon cancer and breast cancer.
It keeps our kidneys working - Kidneys remove waste from our bodies, help control our blood pressure, and balance fluids, so they are crucial to keeping our systems running smoothly. One surefire way to keep them working properly is adequate water consumption. 
Pain prevention - A little water can really go a long way. Aching joints and muscle cramps and strains can all occur if the body is dehydrated  .
