Did you know? A glass of water could prevent a heart attack! The benefit of drinking a glass of water an hour before bedtime is that the water helps your body remain hydrated while you sleep. If you become dehydrated when you sleep, your blood viscosity increases, and that makes your heart work harder. Drinking a glass of water an hour before bed is also associated with reduced risk of stroke as well.
Hydration and your Heart
When you lose just 1% of your body weight in water, you are dehydrated. Dehydration makes your heart work harder because it makes your blood thicker. Dehydration also reduces your body’s ability to regulate its temperature, which can make dehydration worse if you’re hot. Drinking water before bed, and throughout the day is essential for good heart health.

Drinking Water, Mineral Deficiency and High Blood Pressure
Minerals from drinking water have a role in heart health The World Health Organization recommends that you get 10 – 20% of your recommended daily allowance for minerals from drinking water because your body absorbs minerals from drinking water 30% faster and easier from water than it does from food. Mineral deficiency is a health epidemic, and magnesium deficiency in particular is a major risk factor for heart attacks. Even if you get enough calcium and magnesium in your diet, your body may not be able to absorb those minerals effectively from your food. However, even if you have problems absorbing minerals from food, your body will still easily absorb them from water.
The best water to drink for mineral nutrition is alkaline water. Alkaline water hydrates better than plain water, and has a higher concentration of the beneficial minerals you need to get for better health. Research shows that drinking alkaline water can lead to reduced blood pressure, better bone health, weight loss, and many other benefits.

Where to get Alkaline Water
A home water ionizer is the best way to get alkaline water. The machines filter water, and then use a process called electrodialysis to separate water into alkaline mineral and acidic mineral fractions. The great thing about an alkaline water machine is that it never runs out. You get enough water for cooking, drinking, and have plenty for your family. Water from a home ionizer is also cleaner than spring water. Sadly, this is because many of the Earth’s natural springs have become contaminated by pollution. A water ionizer filters out the toxins found in tap water, ensuring every glass of water you drink is clean. Alkaline water from a water ionizer tastes better than plain water too.
Bottled water is the worst way to get alkaline water. Plastic bottles leech harmful BPA, and make water taste like plastic! Bottled water is terrible for the environment as well. Bottled water is also the most expensive form of alkaline water at $3 – $5 a bottle
Yes! You can finance a water ionizer for less than you’re probably paying for bottled water! Call us today at (855) 790-8121 to find out how.
