We asked a cardiologist: why do people often have profuse urination at night.
The answer from a cardiologist is simple – gravity keeps water in the lower part of your body when you are upright, usually during the day, your legs swell. When you lie down and the lower body (legs, etc.) is level with the kidneys, this is what makes the kidneys remove water, because it is easier. This is due to the subsequent statement!
Drinking water at a specific time will maximize its effectiveness in the body:
- 2 glasses of water upon waking up – promotes the activation of internal organs;
- 1 glass of water 30 minutes before meals – aids in digestion;
- 1 glass of water before taking a bath – helps to lower blood pressure;
- 1 glass of water before going to bed – avoids stroke or heart attack
Water during sleep can also help prevent leg cramps at night. The muscles of the legs seek hydration when they cramps and wake us up.
