How to keep your urinary system healthy
Your urinary system is key body function which can have an impact on your overall health.
Its primary purpose is to filter fluid and waste from your blood, keep your electrolyte levels in check and regulate your body’s hormonal balance.
If its not functioning correctly, harmful toxins can build up which can lead to infection and more serious health problems.
Your kidneys are the body’s major regulating mechanism.
Is urinary health important?
Urinary health is important, because any problems can have a knock-on effect on your other vital body systems.
Problems with your urinary system can lead to short-term issues such as urinary tract infections and kidney stones, and longer-term conditions like renal failure or other chronic illnesses.
There are, however, a few simple steps you can take to reduce your risk. These include staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water to flush your system of toxins, reduce your intake of salt, caffeine and alcohol and ensuring you top up with fluids after exercising or sunbathing.
You should also regularly empty your bladder to help prevent a build up of too much urine in your kidneys and urinary tract, which can contain harmful toxins that could cause infection.
