A human body is made up of 50-60% water. Water protects vital organs and tissues, carries nutrients and oxygen to your cells, lubricates the joints, helps dissolve nutrients and minerals to make them accessible to the body, and regulates body temperature.

Benefits Of Drinking Water In The Morning
Here are some benefits of drinking water on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning:
It keeps your gut healthy
Drinking water on an empty stomach helps in correcting bowel movement, which may prevent constipation, bad digestion and intestinal infections.

Ease menstrual pain
Every month, women suffer from cramps which can sometimes be unbearable. Drinking water (warm water) helps to reduce the pain.
Get rid of toxins
Water can assist in flushing toxins (a toxin is anything that damages the body) out of your body. This is because while you are asleep your body cleans itself, restores lost energy and balances hormones. After the clean up, toxins and other waste materials will be released and wait to be flushed out. So, to clear these toxins, you should drink water in the morning.
Your joints are filled out with fluids that can increase or decrease depending on your water intake. This fluid also reduces due to tough activities and ageing. Drinking water in the morning helps your body to restore fluid so that your joint can move freely.
