How many people do you know who say they don’t want to drink anything before bed because they have to wake up many times during the night?!
We often wake up with swollen legs. This happens because of the way the kidneys work at night. But eliminating fluids from the daily ration is a very wrong decision.
Here is the recommended water consumption chart:
Very important: from a specialist cardiologist!
Drinking water at a specific time maximizes its effectiveness in the body.
2 glasses of water after waking up – helps to activate the internal organs
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal – helps digestion
1 glass of water before a bath – helps lower blood pressure
A glass of water before bed – prevents strokes and heart attacks
I can add the following: my doctor told me that drinking water before bedtime also helps to prevent night-time sickness. The muscles in your legs need hydration when they curl up and the pain wakes you up.
Dr. Virend Somers is a cardiologist at the Mayo Clinic and is the first author of the report published July 29, 2008, in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Most heart attacks occur during the day, between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Having a heart attack during the night, when the heart should be resting, means that something unusual has happened. Somers and his colleagues have worked for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.
- If you take one aspirin a day, then take it at night.
Reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour half-life; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, aspirin would be stronger in your system.
- Aspirin stays in your medicine box for a long time, even years (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar).

Something we can do to help ourselves – it’s good to know. Bayer makes crystal aspirin that dissolves instantly on the tongue. Its effect is faster than tablets.
Why keep aspirin by your bedside? It’s all about heart attacks.
There are other symptoms of a heart attack besides pain in the left arm. There’s intense pain in the beard, nausea, profuse sweating. These symptoms can also occur but their frequency is less frequent.
Note: There may NOT be chest pain during a heart attack.
Most people (around 60%) who have had a heart attack in their sleep do not wake up. But if it does occur, the chest pain may wake you from sleep. If this occurs, immediately dissolve 2 aspirin in your mouth and swallow them with a little water.
- Call 911.
- Call a neighbor or family member who lives nearby. Say, “Heart attack!”
- Tell them you took two aspirin.
Sit in a chair or armchair outside the door and wait for them to arrive…
DON’T LIE DOWN!
