(ORDO NEWS) — Scientists have not previously conducted studies that could prove that honey really brings great benefits to the body if it is mixed with water and drunk on an empty stomach. However, this product will be quite useful if a person has certain diseases.
Benefits of water for the body
It is no secret to anyone that water itself has a very strong effect on the proper functioning of the human body.
If you drink enough water, not only the kidneys, but also the gastrointestinal tract begin to work better, the risk of constipation decreases. In addition, it is possible to effectively regulate body temperature, and the skin remains maximally elastic and smooth for longer.
Scientists advise women to drink 2.7 liters of water every day. For men, the norm will be 3.6 liters. In that case, if there is significant physical exertion or a person is in the sun for a long time, then the amount of water consumed must be increased.
It is worth paying attention to the fact that scientists have not conducted any research to prove that drinking water on an empty stomach is more beneficial.
However, it can be used not only during a meal, but also immediately after it. Of course, if you want to drink a glass of water first in the morning, you should not give up the habit. You can also have breakfast first and then drink.
Benefits of honey for the body
Honey contains a lot of sugar and water, as well as vitamins, minerals, trace elements and antioxidants. Adults can consume approximately 70-95 grams of honey per day.
Previous studies have shown that the product will be useful in the presence of problems with the cardiovascular system, because it contains antioxidants that reduce the risk of heart disease.
Honey does a good job of protecting the mucous membrane of the stomach, so doctors recommend using it if a person suffers from peptic ulcer disease or gastroenteritis.
A unique feature of honey is that it can be used to treat wounds or burns, because the product has quite good antiseptic properties. Antimicrobial properties are also present, so it is advisable to add honey to the diet during a cold.
