What you eat or drink can either affect your kidney positively or negatively. Also, according to World Health Organization, 10% of the population worldwide is affected by chronic kidney disease (CKD), and millions die each year because they do not have access to affordable treatment.
The kidney helps to remove waste products, control your body's fluid balance, and keep the right levels of electrolytes like potassium, sodium, magnesium, etc. I discovered that the kidneys filter about 200 liters of blood per day to remove toxins from it. This is to show how important they are in the human body.
That is why it is important to take the right food that would help cleanse your kidney. Here are some ways you can cleanse your kidney below.
1. Kidney Beans
Kidney beans are rich in Vitamin B, fiber, and other minerals that can help to clean the kidney as well as improve the function of your urinary tract. Interestingly, kidney beans look like the kidney and play a vital role in removing waste and toxins from the kidney and flush out kidney stones effectively.
Eating watermelon regularly is very healthy for your kidney because it is rich in lycopene which can improve cardiovascular health. Watermelon also contains large quantities of potassium salts which regulate the acidity of urine and prevents stone formation.
3. Lemon Juice
Finally, drinking lemon juice can help cleanse the kidney. It is naturally acidic so increases citrate levels in urine that prevent the formation of kidney stones. Lemon juice also filters blood and flushes out wastes and other toxins.
Please it is important to dilute it before drinking. Then for people with kidney stones, combining lemon with olive oil ensures smooth passage of the stones.
In conclusion, we must drink more water because according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, it is advised to drink six to eight glasses of water daily.
