Side Effects Of Excessive Mineral Water Consumption?
Good evening doctor, I want to ask if consuming too much mineral water is not good? Where some say that consuming too much mineral water can make the stomach become distended. Please help with the explanation, thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Basically, consuming lots of mineral water is good, because our bodies are dominated by fluids and the liquid origin is from what we drink. Consuming new mineral water can be bad if we consume it excessively.
What is called excessive here is when someone consumes 1-1.5 liters, or even more, water at a time. The body normally has its own mechanism to regulate excess water that will be excreted in urine or urine. But if there is a lot of water in the same time, water poisoning can occur. The condition of water poisoning is when the level of salt in the blood drops dramatically due to too much water, causing symptoms such as vomiting, headaches, diarrhea, cramps, cramps or muscle stiffness, even to the point of coma. That is why, the old expression still applies that no matter how good a thing is, excess is definitely not good.
But if what you consume is not like that, it is not a problem to consume mineral water even though in large quantities, as long as it is gradual. This will not make you distended, because mineral water has no calories. Even if it is distended, it is only temporary because you are bloated by water, but the body will immediately absorb it and dispose of it through urine if considered excessive. For people who want to lose weight instead of consuming water is good, because it can reduce appetite and help reduce food portions. So, hopefully answering your question.
