It doesn't matter; it's just water and a mix of sugars (partially digested bee vomit, actually). No harm done if you do, no harm done if you don't.
Eg: Japanese have the highest life expectancy and lowest rate of heart disease. They don't do any of this. It is hypothesized that the main reason is their diet of fish high in Omega-3 fatty acids. (You can get these from canola or olive oil as well). Heart disease is the biggest ailment in India, and given our predominantly veggie diet, I suppose the main culprit is animal fats like ghee. And our penchant for deep-frying everything. And excessive use of salt.

Exercises in general increases digestion..certainly because of suryanamaskar..but when does properly..in most cases people do not practice this with rigour and does it superficially and then complain Yoga does not workout for me...

Extremely well put Devdutt. I second u on the points u mentioned. Everything that has been there in practice by our sages was meant to ensure a good health and sharp agility of mind but we all (well, mostly) have strayed away and in order to cool have adopted the practices of the lands for which climate it was suited for. One such example is the excess consumption of alchohol in our tropical climate while it was meant for the temperate climate and culture of European countries. As for winters, our age old Kadha made of natutral herbs not only warms us up and keeps our immunity sky high against any diseases. But alas, 'idots as we are....'
