Why you SHOULD drink water at night !!!!!

     Something I didn't know:

             I asked my Doctor why do I and other
people urinate (pee) so much at night time.

                    Answer from my Cardiac Doctor:  Gravity
holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright. When you lie down and the lower body (legs and other things) 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 needed a minimum amount of
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

                               Some Physician told 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.
One can try and see the diference himself........
