Drinking approx. 750 ml of water in the early hours of the day keeps the 3 bio-energies i.e., Vata, Pitta and Kapha on track.

According to Ayurveda, drinking 8 prasriti (approximately 768 ml) of water in the early hours of the day during sunrise and before attending nature calls helps channelizing the 3 doshas, viz., Vaata, Pitta and Kapha. It ensures healthy metabolic fire and assures the followers of this regime a lengthy life with a perfect libido.
