Day 19 of 2013 Part 2 - Something interesting about Water

Saturday, January 19, 2013

This was emailed to me from a friend, from another network. Thought it might make for interesting reading........MORE REASONS WHY WATER IS GOOD FOR YOU

Subject: Mayo Clinic Good thing to know

Mayo Clinic

Good thing to know!
Mayo Clinic:

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!!

Heart Attack and Water.
I never knew all of this! Interesting....... Read on:

I asked my Doctor why 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! Read:

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.
