For years doctors have advocated people at high risk for heart attack take an aspirin daily, but the pill may help control high blood pressure. And taking it at bedtime is the best time (according to a study in the American journal of hypertension). Prehypertensive people who took 100 milligrams of aspirin before bed lowered their blood pressure significantly enough that researchers believe the habit could delay the need for hypertensive drugs by up to 15 years. (Morning aspirin saw no benefits). 
At night, aspirin reduces the activity of renin, an enzyme that raises blood pressure. And as your body reaps the benefits of a truly healthy day, you can rest easy.
