Keeping the Kidneys Healthy

Happened on 23 February 2009  | ( 0 ) Comments

The function of the urinary system is to produce and remove urine as a waste product. It regulates the amount of fluid in the body and the acidity or alkalinity and consistency of body fluids.

The kidneys are designed to keep the blood clean. They spend every minute of the day filtering out impurities. However like any intricate structure they have limitations. Drinking water on a frequent basis during the day can alleviate some potential problems by helping the kidneys to flush toxins from the body.
Amongst the important substances the kidneys help to control are sodium, potassium, chloride, bicarbonte, pH, calcium phosphate and magnesium.

Potassium and sodium are crucial to the body's fluid balance because healthy cells need the proper concentration of salts. When the kidneys aren't working properly waste products and fluid can build up. This can lead to serious health threatening conditions. Since food processing lowers the potassium content of foods, we should try to include plenty of fresh wholefoods in our diet.
Herbal supplements, vitamins and minerals can also help provide the urinary system with the nutrients it needs to effectively perform its delicate chemical balancing act. Symptoms of kidney imbalances can include tired on waking even after a good sleep, dark urine or tendency to back problems. Juniper and Parsley Combination :
