Can We Drink Water While We Eat?
The digestion process starts exactly when we are thinking about our future meal: saliva is produced in the mouth. When we chew food, we mix it with saliva that contains the necessary enzymes for digestion. Then, the softened food gets into our stomachs where it gets mixed with the stomach acid. On average,the stomach needs 4 hours to digest foodbefore turning it into liquid, or chyme. Chyme goes further into the intestine where it gives all the nutrients to the body.
Water doesn’t stay in the stomach for a long time. It takes about 10 minutes to for the stomach to move 10 oz of water. So, if you drink while eating, water doesn’t form lakes in your stomach. It goes through the chewed food very quickly, moisturizes it and leaves the stomach quickly.
