Havent you heard your parents constantly telling you to sit down whilst drinking? You might feel irritated thinking that they have too many things to say, well you better start listening to them now because there are health implications if you drink water whilst standing up!
Negative Impact On kidneys, When we stand up and drink water, it flows with great volume down the food canal and splashes onto the lower stomach wall. The splash actually damages the stomach wall and nearby organs. Over a long-term, it even disturbs the overall digestive system. It has been found that our kidneys filter better while sitting. Water intake while standing passes the water with a push with out much filtration. It causes the impurities to gather in blood or bladder leading to damage to kidneys.
Drinking water while standing up doesn’t even quench your thirst as it doesn’t settle in the liver to let it distribute nutrients to several parts of the body.
