What do the kidneys do?
The kidneys work hard to filter the blood and remove waste and excess fluids from the body. They are also responsible for maintaining fluid balance and regulating important electrolytes, making certain hormones and helping to control healthy blood pressure. Although they mostly help to excrete waste, the kidneys also reabsorb water, along with important nutrients such as minerals and amino acids. (Cleveland Clinic)
Environmental toxins such as heavy metals, pollutant chemicals, certain medications and lifestyle choices can all lead to toxic overload in the kidneys. Toxins can be especially harmful to the kidneys, causing overwhelm and even tissue damage. Damage to the kidneys can reduce their function over time. (Pizzorno)
When it comes to looking after the kidneys, it’s important to reduce the toxic load, protect the cells and tissues, and support toxin elimination from the body.
Diet and lifestyle choices contribute to kidney health and function. Getting enough sleep, staying hydrated, and avoiding excessive alcohol, sugar and salt will all contribute to avoiding kidney damage.
How Shine Greens Kidney blend works
Eating a plant-rich diet ensures that the body receives a range of phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. These nutrients all work to protect the health and function of the kidneys.
Barley grass and asparagus have a diuretic effect, supporting the body’s ability to expel waste products. The antioxidants in barley grass also help to protect tissue from damage that may be caused by toxins. (Salah; Poormoosavi)
Parsley, cherry juice and cranberry juice are all rich sources of phytonutrients, vitamin C and antioxidants that help to protect the kidneys from free radical damage. (Andrei; Prakash; Nemzer)
While diet and lifestyle choices are within our control, some of the toxins we are exposed to every day are harder to avoid. Including potent plant ingredients in your daily routine helps to support the kidneys in safely removing waste from the body.
