Drink one glass of water after waking up to activate internal organs and remove toxins before the first meal of the day. 2. Drink one glass of water 30 minutes before a meal to help digestion. 3. Drink water an hour after the meal to allow the body to absorb the nutrients. 4. Drink one glass of water before taking a bath to help lower your blood pressure. 5.
