How Drinking Water Can Improve Digestion

Posted on September 17, 2021

While there’s still debate surrounding what time (before, during or after a meal) you should drink water when eating, we do know, according to the Mayo Clinic, drinking water can in fact help aid digestion during a meal. Water helps break down food allowing your body to absorb nutrients from your food. Struggle with drinking water? Let Cirkul help! 

Bonus! This leads to softer stool which helps your bowel movements stay regular and prevents constipation or bloating (thank goodness!)

Double Bonus! Drinking water before or during a meal can also help fill you up much quicker, preventing you from eating too much and feeling uncomfortable. 

If you experience bouts of constipation or overeating at meals and would like to get your digestion on track, try a few of these tips below!

  • Drink small amounts of water during meals - too much too fast will create more issues!
  • If you don’t  like to drink during meals, try drinking before and after to help keep things moving.
  • Don’t like the taste of plain water? Try out a few Cirkul flavors so you can help your digestion AND have some added benefits!
  • Find what works for you and your body - whether that’s before, during, or after a meal.
