Water after fruits?

Reasons to say no to water after eating fruits

We all must eat fruits as a part of our daily diet intake because they are full of vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients for our body. They also reduce the risk of strokes, diabetes, and cancer. A person who consumes fruits daily has a lower chance of falling sick as compared to others. Even the doctors recommend to include fruits in your daily menu, but they always say no to drink water after eating fruits. Have you ever wondered why our elders and doctors tell us not to drink water after consuming fruits?

It causes flatulence and cramps

The stomach produces hydrochloric acid that helps in breaking down the food, but if we drink water immediately after eating fruits, the water dilutes the acids and slows down the digestive process causing flatulence and cramps.

It can cause diarrhea

It slows down the digestion process

It dilutes the gastric acids, leaving food undigested in the stomach. Sometimes, the undigested food can become toxic instead of giving nutrients, and thus result in stomach-issues.
