The role of the kidneys is of vital importance for our overall health, as they perform many crucial functions in the body.
According to the National Kidney Foundation,
“the major function of the kidneys is to remove waste products and excess fluid from the body. These waste products and excess fluid are removed through the urine. The production of urine involves highly complex steps of excretion and re-absorption. This process is necessary to maintain a stable balance of body chemicals.
The critical regulation of the body’s salt, potassium and acid content is performed by the kidneys. The kidneys also produce hormones that affect the function of other organs. For example, a hormone produced by the kidneys stimulates red blood cell production. Other hormones produced by the kidneys help regulate blood pressure and control calcium metabolism.”
Yet, the healthy function can be greatly impaired by bad habits like alcohol abuse, smoking, and frequent consumption of starchy foods.
The most common symptom of kidney toxicity and failure is the pain in the lower back, and if not treated on time it can even lead to fatal consequences.
Fortunately, there is a powerful natural remedy that restores the function of the kidneys, which causes no side effects, as it contains natural ingredients only.
Cranberries make the urine acidic and thus prevent infections of the kidneys and the urinary tract, while ginger stimulates circulation and detoxifies the blood. Moreover, the citric acid in lemons prevents the formation of kidney stones, and turmeric fights inflammation in the kidneys and prevents blood clots and blood platelets.
Here is how to prepare it:
- A cup of cranberry juice
- A cup of grape juice
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- ½ teaspoon turmeric
In a glass jar, mix all the ingredients and leave them for half an hour to infuse.
After this time, strain it, and drink it throughout the day.
