We all know that drinking water is good for us. But in particular, there are some major health benefits to drinking an entire glass of water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. So why not try these tips? Being healthy doesn’t have to be so hard.

1. Metabolism booster

Drinking at least 16 ounces of chilled water a day can boost your metabolism up to 24% in the morning.

2. Glowing skin

Drinking water helps to get rid of toxins from our blood, which leads to healthy, clear and glowing skin.

3. Balances our lymph systems

This means we can be up on our feet first thing in the morning by drinking water because it helps us perform our daily functions, balances our body fluids and fights infections meaning we are less likely to get sick.

4. Increases our blood and muscle cells

In doing so, this allows us to lose weight more easily!
