The Kidney is another great body toxin expeller; it helps filter waste products from the blood. They are also involved in regulating blood pressure, electrolyte balance, and red blood cell production in the body. The kidneys send toxins to the bladder and these toxins get expelled in form of urination.
Kidney cleansing is very essential. When the body kidney function becomes impaired the body gets overloaded with toxins due to the fact that the kidney is not able to filter waste from the body sufficiently.
So I thought it will be nice to give the kidney a treat at least once in a whole week. It’s the least we can do for it after so much hard work. Let’s go green on the kidneys, let’s give them life, and let’s make them feel better on Wednesdays.
I will unlock a secret kidney magician every Wednesday and you can make whatever dish, salad, smoothie or juice out of it. The Kidney magician for today is APPLE.
You are probably wondering right now…..Apples?
Yes, apples. They are natural cleansers for the kidney. They are an excellent source of Vitamin C and an antioxidant- quercetin which is also tied to improved heart health and cancer prevention. They are a great source of pectin, a soluble fibre that is wonderful for diabetic’s since it slows down the rate of blood sugar and removes excess cholesterol.
Give your body a green treat today.
