We all on some level try to do things that will result in us avoiding getting diseases such as Diabetes and Alzheimer’s, while at the same time doing those things that will result in our heart health going up and up.
However can you even remember a time when you actually thought about improving the health of your kidneys? If not, maybe it’s time that you started paying them a little more attention.
You can literally say that after your heart, your kidneys are the most important organ in your body. They are responsible for filtering about 200 quarts of blood everyday.
Another extremely important job they have is to filter about 2 quarts of excess water a day… and all the waste that’s left is transported to the bladder where it is stored as urine.
Your kidney’s also produce hormones that regulate the blood chemicals that are floating about in your body.
So naturally you’d want to take the correct steps to make sure that your kidneys remain in their optimal condition for the rest of your life.
Here are some solid tips to help you keep your kidneys in remarkable health.
1. Start Drinking Way More Water Than You Already Do
Make sure that you remain as hydrated as possible because doing so will ensure that the volume and concentration of your blood will remain largely consistent.
Drinking plenty of water will also result in your digestive system running as smooth as possible, and it will also ensure that your body temperature remains stable and finally staying hydrated will mean that all the toxins in your body will be removed as quickly as possible.
To get all of this done, you’re going to want to drink about 64 ounces of water each and every day.
However if you happen to be suffering from kidney problems already or you happen to sweat a lot more than normal then I’d highly recommend that you drink at least half your bodyweight in ounces in water.
So for example this would mean drinking at least 80 ounces of water everyday if you weighed in at about 160 pounds. But make sure that the water you do drink is filtered and pure!
2. Avoid Delaying Going To The Bathroom
As I said earlier your kidneys main job is to filter out all the blood that is in your body.
When your kidneys are done filtering all the blood in your body then all that will remain will be excess water and waste which will be transported to your bladder, ready to be flushed out.
But keep in mind that your bladder can only really hold in about 14 ounces of water, each and everyday.
When you avoid going to the bathroom, when you need to go… it causes your bladder to expand way more than it should do.
So when you finally do go to the bathroom, your bladder doesn’t actually empty out all the way. If you keep doing this again and again then it will result in you getting a urinary tract infection.
