Why we should not drink water while eating the food ?
Asked by Lochan Khatri | 20th Apr, 2013, 09:05: PM
we should not drink water while eating the food because the liquids that one consumes while eating food, can dilute digestive enzymes and acids in the stomach and the saliva in the mouth. These enzymes are essential to breakdown the food and absorb nutrients. If they get too diluted, it becomes harder for the body to breakdown food; hence, the stomach tries hard for food breakdown by producing more acids, which in turn could result in heartburns or acid reflux.
