Hydration and the Heart Attack Connection

December 19, 2016

Dr. Virend Somers is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic and the lead

author of a report in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. His research found that heart attacks can be triggered by dehydration. He has determined that there are certain times to hydrate during the day that maximize the effectiveness in our bodies. 

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.

Did you know ….water at bed time helps prevent night time leg cramps? These cramps are caused by our leg muscles seeking hydration. Drinking too much water late in the evening can cause some inconveniences. This happens because lying down brings your lower body 

(legs ect…)  level with your kidneys. Your kidneys then begin the process of removing the excess water in your system helping to flush toxins out of your body.  Inconvenient? Maybe not so much after all!
