Our body’s need for water

water_glass_210158We all know that our body is mainly composed of water and its rehydration must be regular and constant. It is said that an average of 6 glasses of water is essential for a healthy body. Lately I’ve been seeing information on the benefits of drinking water at specific times. The sources of this information claim that this maximizes its
effectiveness on the body, and this is what they recommend:

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 a bath helps lower blood pressure
1 glass of water before going to bed prevents strokes or heart attacks

It is also claimed 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. This is an easy test to do as many people get woken up by painful cramps in the middle of the night. Why not try this simple remedy and see what happens!

Many people don’t  want to drink anything before going to bed because they’ll have to get up during the night!! But this problem really is mostly only in the mind, and also many people who drink a glass of water at bedtime have reported that this may happen in the beginning but the body and the bladder adjust and the problem disappears.
