Better Digestion

According to Ayurveda, waking up early can enhance the digestive fire or Agni, since the digestive system is most active during the hours of the day when the sun is strongest - generally between 10 am and 2 pm. Also, you start your day with a strong digestive fire that allows your body to efficiently digest and process food substances throughout the day.
