Your kidneys are organs that are shaped like a bean. They are located at the backside of your abdomen. They provide your body with very important functions.
Particularly, they are primarily responsible for filtering waste and toxins from your bloodstream. They also release important hormones into your body: erythropoietin, renin, and calcitriol.
Those hormones are extremely important to your overall health. Your kidneys are constantly working, along with your other organs, in order to keep your blood pressure under control, produce red blood cells and to create Vitamin D.
Kidneys are organs that essentially cleanse themselves. However, to help them do this, you must drink enough fluids and remain hydrated.
You can also help to achieve this by eating certain fruits and vegetables, as well as drinking water.
When your kidneys cleanse themselves, they are not only removing toxins from your body, but also help to keep your blood pressure under control, help the function of your urinary tract and help the function of your bladder.
If you are feeling symptoms of kidney trouble, you may need some extra help in cleansing your kidneys.
These symptoms can include: feeling fatigued, feeling moody, feeling pain in your kidneys after eating, eczema of the skin, feeling boated, sudden weight gain, kidney stones, or urinary tract infections.
You can help your kidneys along by maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regime. It is essential that you keep your body hydrated, as well.
However, if you feel that you need a little extra help in cleansing your kidneys, you can turn to some herbs. It is important that you consult your doctor before adding any herbs into your daily regime. They may not be suitable for those with pre-existing kidney disease, or other medical conditions. The herbs may also interact with certain medications.
