There's a time for everything—especially these 13 life basics.
Best Time to Pop an Aspirin
If you take baby aspirin for protection against heart disease, shoot for 11 p.m., or right before bed. Spanish researchers found that people who took aspirin every night had lower blood pressure three months later than those who took it at 8 a.m.—a likely result of the pill slowing down clot-inducing proteins that are produced only when the body is at rest. This said, if you're taking other medications, check with your doctor about the best time for you.
