The kidneys are among the most important organs in the body – they clean the blood of toxins and are responsible for proper elimination of waste from the body as well. However, let’s be honest – we rarely pay much attention to our kidneys, which can have a serious impact on our health.
Experts say that we all do things that cause quite a lot of damage to our kidneys – here’s a list of the most harmful habits for our kidneys:
Not enough water
Experts say that we should drink 6-8 glasses of water every day so the kidneys can work properly. The kidneys regulate red blood cell production and eliminate metabolic waste from the body – if they’re not allowed to work properly they won’t be able to remove toxins from the body, resulting in numerous problems.
Not going to the bathroom when you need to
If you feel like peeing, you should do it as soon as you can. Not doing so will strain the kidneys and harm their function slowly over time.
