Right way to drinking water
Pouring ourselves a glass of water and chugging it in one go seems like the simplest act we perform in a day. Other than the purity of the water we hardly pay attention to anything when we drink or offer it to others. But you would be surprised to know that there are several small details in regards to drinking water that may have a major impact on your health and well-being. Right from how long the water is kept in the glass to how you are drinking it, all hold great significance when it comes to hydrating ourselves and quenching our thirst.
Importance of drinking water correctly
Sufficient intake of water is essential for every living being. Water not only hydrates us but also removes toxins from the body, lubricates the joints and helps in the functioning of other organs. All in all, water has several roles to play in keeping us healthy and fit. So, when you drink water incorrectly you are missing out on some essential benefits of it.
The difference in taste
Have you ever felt any change in the taste of the fluid when you drink a glass of water sitting for a long time or overnight? Most certainly you would have. You feel the change in taste because of carbon dioxide. Leaving the water uncovered for 12 hours leads to molecular changes in water. The carbon dioxide in the air starts to mix with it, reducing the pH level that gives it an off-taste. It does not mean that this water is unsafe for consumption. Tap water has a shelf life of six months, so you can drink this water. But drinking uncovered water also means consuming all the dirt and debris that sits on the top layer from the surrounding. You may not be able to see it, but trust us there are millions of them.
