Viral News Boy :- The usefulness of water in our daily lives cannot be overemphasized here, as water has done so much more to our general wellbeing more than we can ever imagine.
Water is good for the body and helps the body to function well. Water serves as a natural detox for the body and helps to remove waste products freely.
It equally helps in the digestion and free distribution of food around the body. When it comes to free circulation of blood, water has a great job to perform here. Well, the functions of water in the body are too numerous to count but, we must bear in mind that the body needs lots of water everyday to be able to carry out it’s function.
However, in as much as water has all these wonderful properties, we must also know that the time at which we drink this water matters a lot so that we wouldn’t get our health on the line.
It is said that too much of everything is not good so everything we do must be done in moderation, hence the need for the reason why we should not drink water before sleeping at night.This article is just going to give one particular reason for this, and it is simply because drinking water immediately before you go to bed can cause frequent urination, thereby giving stress to the bladder which is responsible for storing up urine.
We all know that the kidney regulates the amount of fluid in the body, and it is also responsible for the removal of waste products. When you drink water before sleeping at night, you are indirectly telling the kidney not to rest.
Drinking water before you sleep at night can increase the amount of times you may need to wake up to urinate, causing you to deprive of yourself of sleep which equally has its own negative effects on your health like elevated blood pressure, increased cholesterol, anxiety and the rest.
That notwithstanding, some people may sleep so soundly without acknowledging the fact that their bladder is very full hence having a delay in urinating. This is capable of causing bladder stones. This is a case where mass of minerals form in the concentrated urine, thereby forming stones which is capable of blocking the free flow of urine.
This in turn, can lead to other serious health damages like urinary tract disease, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), enlarged prostrate etc.We are therefore advised to drink as much water as we want during the day when we are still conscious, and when the body is still very active. If you must take water at night, it should be taken about 2 hours before you go to bed.
That way, the body can get rid of some of the urine and it will equally enable you to have quality sleep for 6 to 8 hours. So having seen this reason, I hope you may need to change your pattern of fluid intake at night before you hit the bed. Don’t forget to always take care of your health. It is the wealthiest thing you have.
