Urinary system

Learn more about your urinary system. The urinary system is a marvel of complexity. In this 5 minute clip, we take you through the basics of the urinary system. It never hurts to understand all we can about how our bodies work!

Quick recap

  • Your kidneys balance body water levels and remove impurities, producing urine
  • Urine flows from the kidneys to the bladder, where it is stored until excreted
  • In a fully functioning urinary system, the brain and bladder communicate to coordinate when and how often you pee
  • A functioning urinary system is critical to our overall good health
