The urinary system is a combination of different organs that help to eliminate waste from the body, regulate blood volume and blood pressure, control levels of electrolytes and metabolites, and regulate blood pH. The urinary system, also known as the renal system or urinary tract, comprises the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra.
A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection of the urinary system. This type of infection can encompass your urethra (a condition called urethritis), kidneys (a condition called pyelonephritis) or bladder, (a condition called cystitis). Since the urinary system is very delicate, it can be affected due to our lifestyle habits and the things we consume.
There are different foods we should consume regularly to keep our urinary system healthy. Some of them include;
Berries are one of the most healthy foods for the urinary system. Cranberries, blueberries, raspberries and other berries facilitate urinary tract health and protect against infection with a significant compound that helps fight bacteria and keeps it from sticking to the lining of the urinary tract. Always incorporate berries into your diet.
Staying hydrated is very important for keeping the urinary system healthy. Water is one of the best fluids for the bladder. Drinking enough water also helps produce more urine, which helps to flush out infection-causing bacteria. Always drink water as it helps to keep your brain healthy.
3. Green least vegetables
These vegetables are also very healthy for the kidney. The vitamin C in them makes urine more acidic, which helps prevent bacteria from growing in the system. Always consume vegetables to keep your urinary system healthy.
