Water and Healthy Digestion

Water_HealthyDigestion

Water lubricates food’s passage through the digestive system, and so it is essential for healthy digestion. Between one and two litres per day is recommended to keep the body hydrated. 

INCREASING FLUID

Dehydration can result in dry, hard stools and also constipation. Plain water is the best fluid but alternatives such as fruit juices, milk and herbal teas can help you increase your daily fluid intake.

On the other hand, alcohol and caffeinated drinks, such as coffee and tea, are dehydrating, encouraging fluid loss by acting as a diuretic (increased urination)

Too much water while while you are eating will dilute the digestive juices, so try to drink gradually throughout the day rather than concentrating on fulfilling your body’s fluid needs during meal times.
