drinking a glass of water in the morning is very good for the body. Drinking water on an empty stomach in the morning is healthy and long-lived! So, many people are confused. Would you like to brush your teeth or drink water first?
After getting up in the morning, drinking a cup of boiled water first has become a common sense accepted by most people. I think it can not only clear the intestines, but also bring digestive enzymes in saliva into the intestines and stomach. When eating, it can more fully decompose food. But in fact, many people have overlooked that it is best to brush your teeth before drinking water.
It is undeniable that drinking boiled water in the morning is a healthy living habit. On the one hand, it can supplement the water lost in metabolism, on the other hand, it can promote excretion and prevent constipation. Moreover, it can dilute blood, reduce blood viscosity, promote blood circulation and prevent cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, especially for the elderly.
But before drinking water, the first thing we should do is brush our teeth. Because when sleeping at night, some food residues or dirt are easily left on the teeth. When they are combined with the calcium salt of saliva and deposited, plaque and calculus are easily formed. If you drink water directly, it will bring these bacteria and dirt into the human body.
However, some people may say that if you brush your teeth first, you will brush away the digestive enzymes in your saliva. Isn't it a pity?
In fact, digestive enzymes in saliva can only break down and digest food when they eat. When they don't eat, they are in a 'resting' state. When people are sleeping, the saliva secretion is very little, so the digestive enzymes produced are very little. In addition, digestive enzymes exist in the gastrointestinal tract of the human body. Saliva only produces a small part of digestive enzymes. Even if it is brushed off when brushing, it will not affect the digestion of food. Of course, drinking water first is not a big problem. They will be killed in the stomach. So when you get up in the morning, you should brush your teeth before drinking water.
Health discussion: boiled water vs light salt water good or bad?
It is better for ordinary people to drink boiled water in the morning, and salt should not be added (for example, drinking boiled water with salt will aggravate hypertonic dehydration and make people dry mouth more. Besides, morning is the first peak of blood pressure rise. Drinking salt and boiled water will make blood pressure higher). People with constipation, drinking honey water is a good choice. Get up in the morning and drink no more than 150 ml of water on an empty stomach.
--Healthy people said: since I formed the habit of drinking warm water, I have less and less cold hands and feet, even when my menstruation came to report, I no longer feel so uncomfortable.
Conclusion: in fact, no matter whether you drink water first or brush your teeth first, there is no dispute about this, because the core content is to emphasize the importance of lifestyle to oral health and tell people to develop a healthy lifestyle. Of course, for the sake of 'safety', it's also good to brush your teeth and clean them first. It is worth noting that do not squeeze too much toothpaste every time you brush your teeth, which will increase the amount of harmful substances left on your teeth, and it is easy to cause waste!
