Our kidneys bear with everything that we decide to put in our bodies and never get enough credit for it.
Without proper functioning kidneys, you will not be able to do the following:
– Maintain pH
– Regulate your blood pressure
– Produce an optimum amount of red blood cells
– Breaking down vitamin D
Over 600,000 American citizens are diagnosed with kidney failures and over 12% of the population suffer from some kind of a kidney disease.
A kidney cleanse has become essential, given the lifestyle of the average American. Give your kidneys their well deserved break.
5 Natural Things to Flash More Toxins Out of Your Body
Here are 5 natural diuretics that will help your kidneys flash more toxins out of your body:
Ginger is loaded with flavonoids and other minerals and is pretty well known to be an excellent liver cleansing agent; it comes as no surprise that it can do the same for the kidneys.
The easiest way to get your fix is soaking bits and pieces of ginger in hot water and let it cool for 10 minutes.
Drinking this twice a day will not only soothe your kidneys, but also do away with colds and other things of the like.
2. Dandelion Root
Dandelion root tea is one of the best diuretics you will find, once you get past the bitter taste of it. It helps you urinate more and when you pee more, you get rid of more toxins.
Making a cuppa is fairly easy, all you need to do is pour some hot water on the root, let it cool for about 5 minutes, and gulp it down. You could add a dash of honey to neutralise the bitterness, too.
If this seems like a bit of trouble, there is an alternative, too. There are plenty of packaged dandelion teas available in the market that you can get your hands on.
A study featured in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology presented that parsley has the same diuretic capabilities as dandelion roots that encourages an osmosis that helps you urinate more.
There can be multiple ways to enjoy parsley, be it a smoothie or a good old cup of tea.
A green smoothie at the beginning of your day will keep you energized throughout and a hot cup of tea after a long one will refresh you.
4. Marshmallow root
Marshmallow root is the most delicious diuretic there can be, along with gelatin and different flavours.
Store brought readymade marshmallows don’t actually contain any marshmallow root so making some on your own is the best way to go about it.
If you can’t manage the time to make real marshmallow blocks, the tea method is equally useful!
Celery is an important component of all detoxifying smoothies and juices, owing to its diuretic nature.
It is also loaded with nutrients that will take special care of your kidneys and help you keep away from infections.
A stick of celery is tasty and extremely healthy. It can be added to your smoothie, your salad, your sandwich or be munched on with some dip. You can’t go wrong with this one.
