I’ve heard it a hundred times… Don’t break the seal! While out drinking it really does seem that after I go to the bathroom for the first time, I have to go to the bathroom more after that. Well apparently ‘Breaking The Seal’ isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
You think its some sort of fact of life…
Only here’s the thing. IT’S A MYTH.
Dr. Courtenay Moore is a urologist at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. And she says there’s absolutely NO scientific evidence behind “breaking the seal.”
Alcohol is REALLY GOOD at making you pee, because you’re drinking a lot of liquid . . . AND because it makes your brain release a chemical called ADH, which redirects water from your body to your bladder.
So it’s not that you’ve “broken the seal” and that’s why you have to keep going to the bathroom . . . it’s just that your bladder QUICKLY gets filled up as you drink.
