Have You Heard Of Breaking The Seal?

Do you Booze and dash to the washroom! Well Booze and pee go hand in hand. We all have witnessed boozers to pee more frequently than normal. Alcohol is considered to be a diuretic, it induces heavy urination. So how does Alcohol break the seal? What’s the connection?

Logical Explanation: So to explain in clinical terms, alcohol affects the ant diuretic hormone (ADH), also called as Arginine Vasopressin which regulates the quantity of water released from our kidneys into the urine. It preserves a certain quantity of water by forming a porous area in our kidneys which facilitate in flowing water back into our blood instead of passing out through the urine. Higher levels of the hormone ADH, causes the kidneys to hold on to more water inside our body which eventually decreases our urge to urinate. Alcohol suppresses the release of ADH and thereby increases urine production and therefore dehydration. It’s akin to doing away with the barrage in your kidneys and allowing free movement of water into your urine.
It only takes a small quantity of alcohol to obstruct ADH, and as you go on to drinking more alcohol the ADH levels carry on decreasing with increasing urine production. So it’s a vicious cycle..In fact it doesn’t stop at that, due to frequent urination, the body gets dehydrated faster and the next day, you tend to have a dry mouth and a terrible hangover with a severe headache. The condition becomes only worse if you are drinking with soda.
