Water is Life

Good to know:

How many folks do you know who say they don't want to drink anything before
going to bed because they'll have to get up during the night!!

Something else I didn't know ... I asked my Doctor why do people need to
urinate so much at night time.

Answer from my Cardiac Doctor

Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright
(legs swell).

When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc) seeks level with the
kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier.

This then ties in with the last statement!

I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your
body, but this was news to me.

Correct time to drink water... Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist!

Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body:

2 glasses of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs

1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion

1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure

1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack

I can also add to this... My Physician told me that water at bed time will
also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking
hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse.
