To all who took the time to respnd to this shared information:
In no way was I advocating the additional information shared on the "Merits of Drinking Water" Blog. I simply gave that site in an effort to let others know where the information came from originally. I certainly do not wish to gain a reputation of pilfering from the Blogs of others.
Of course, it is a given that, WHENEVER we drink water, it will benefit the functioning of our bodies – as long as we don’t go overboard with an excessive amount of that beneficial liquid.
This Blog was simply to point out possible benefits of drinking water at specific times of day – along with other water consumption throughout a twenty-four hour period of time.
I awoke one morning to the whisperings of the spirit, "Water first". The more I learn about the effects of water on the body the more I am convinced that was a good thing to remember. Thanks for the information. 1691 days ago
But what people tend to ignore is that you can drink TOO much water, screw up your electrolytes and feel crappy at best and have a heart attack at worst. Listen to your body. 1692 days ago
I knew most of these but I did not know the one for bedtime. I tend to avoid drinking anything after the evening meal because I am up so often during the night due to my kidneys problem. I wouldnt get any sleep at all if I drank water in the evening like I used to! thanks for sharing 1692 days ago
Water has lots of great benefits, WHENEVER you drink it. As to the blog you referenced, be careful - a lot of it is from questionable email sources. For instance, the section about aspirin contains a reference to the Mayo Clinic site. Their response follows:
"We have been informed of a recently circulated email regarding the use of aspirin, which included mention of Dr. Virend Somers and of Mayo Clinic. Neither Dr. Somers nor Mayo Clinic contributed to this email, which contains some information that is inaccurate and potentially harmful. We recommend that you speak with your physician if you have specific questions."
Whenever possible I go straight to the source:
