Water an important aspect for health, but at the same time there is possibility when drinking too much water can be a problem:
If one has any kidney or adrenal problems, or are taking diuretics, need to consult with the medical professional about how much water to drink each day.
One should not drink all the water at once that is need of the day. Divide the amount of need and drink several glasses of water throughout the day. This is especially important if one engage in lots of heavy exercise.
Drinking too much water – thus, causing an overload on kidneys.
Water for Energy and Skin; most people don’t drink enough water, one need water to flush out toxins, which keep our tissues hydrated, and keep energy level up.
Water is also essential if eating high-fiber foods. Water helps fiber do its job.
Drinking throughout the day, and not just before you go to bed should keep you from having to get up during the night.” If plain water doesn’t quite do it for you, add slices of lemon, lime, or orange for flavor without calories. Or try a sprig of mint for a refreshing change of pace.
Though, drinking water helps in maintaining the Balance of body fluids. As body is composed of about 60% of water. The functions of these bodily fluids include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperature.
When one is low on fluids, the brain triggers the body’s thirst mechanism, unless taking some sort of medications that makes person feeling of thirsty.
But excessive intake can cause hyponatremia that means “low sodium, also called water intoxication.” It occurs when someone drinks enormous amounts of water and/or loses too much salt from the body in a short time. Drinking an enormous amount of water overwhelms the kidneys and they can’t process and drop the water fast enough, so the amount of sodium in blood drops too low.
Brain needs sodium and when the sodium levels drop this low a person feels confusion and lethargy. Severe hyponatremia can lead to twitching, seizures and even death. It can also occur in aged people and people with certain medical conditions.
Prolonged and excessive sweating increases the risk that an athlete will alter the delicate balance of blood-sodium concentration. Because sodium is lost in sweat it is important for those exercising at high intensities for long periods of time to replace any loses.
Symptoms: The early warning signs are often subtle and may be similar to dehydration and include nausea, muscle cramps, disorientation, slurred speech, and confusion. At this point, many athletes drink more water because they think they are dehydrated. Unfortunately, water alone will increase the problem of hyponatremia. At the most extreme an athlete may experience seizures, coma, or death.
