Drinking water during a meal moistens the food you eat and helps break down the food into fine and smaller particles. This explains why it is ideal and healthy to have water in between your meal. However, this does not mean you should drink a glass full of water to quench thirst. Instead, try sipping a minimal amount of water during your meals.

Also, make sure the water you drink is at the room temperature as very cold water will make digestive enzymes inactive which leads to accumulation of toxic waste in the body. This also results in toxic ailments such as acid reflux or hiatus hermia. Also, avoid consuming drinks or beverages like coffee or tea while having your food.

After 1 or 2 hours, drink as much water as possible as digestion process will be over. Thank you for reading. Leave any inquiries on the comments section.
