Food is the essential thing our body needs to function. It’s a fuel which feeds our cells, but this only goes for healthy foods. Nowadays, we eat too much processed and junk food which certainly isn’t doing our health any favors. Consuming unhealthy food will lead to a variety of problems and can significantly harm our kidneys.
We can’t stress the important of the kidneys for our overall health. They are responsible for purifying the blood of toxins and also play a role in the elimination process.
Furthermore, the kidneys produce certain hormones that can control our blood pressure and stimulate the production of red blood cells. In order to prevent potential health problems, we need to keep our kidneys clean and properly functioning. This can be done with a healthy diet, and with the help of a few natural remedies that can detoxify your kidneys.
Here’s how to prepare them:
Kidney watermelon flush
– 2 cups of chopped watermelon
– 1 lime (peeled)
Mix the watermelon and lime in a blender with some water, then pour the drink in a glass and drink it fresh. This juice contains a lot of vitamin C which will reinforce your immune system and potassium, a natural diuretic that can also prevent the formation of kidney stones.
– 2 carrots
– 1 cucumber
Wash and peel the veggies, then mix them in a blender and drink the juice fresh. The high water content of the cucumber and the beta-carotene from carrots will nourish your body with nutrients it needs to remove excess uric acid and keep your health in check.
Super radish kidney flush
– A cup of chopped radish
– A cup of shredded purple cabbage
– 1 celery rib
Wash and chop the ingredients, then mix them in a blender with a bit of water. Radishes have anti-inflammatory properties and can fight various infections, while cabbage has all the vitamin C our body needs on a daily basis.
All these juices work best when taken before breakfast. Try them yourself, and your kidneys will stay as clean as a whistle.
