Supporting the health of our kidneys is important for our overall well-being. The kidneys are essential for regulating numerous bodily functions such as removing toxins from the body, underscoring the significance of their proper operation.

How does daily nutrient intake impact overall kidney health?

In order to understand how daily habits can affect the way the kidneys function, let’s first take a look at which nutrients are the most important to pay attention to and limit consumption if needed, as too much can compromise already-weakened kidneys.

 

 

How Can We Make our Kidneys Stronger?

Adding beneficial herbs to your diet has also been shown to be able to help remove toxins, and even help restore some function to the kidneys.

 

How Can Herbs Naturally Support Your Kidneys?

Studies have shown that Pyrrosia leaf, Schisandra berry, Macrocarpium berry, Euryale seeds and Goji leaf are some of the best herbs for kidney health, effective in protecting the kidneys from damages and helping to regulate the function of the kidneys.

Pyrrosia Leaf

Pyrrosia leaf is an herb commonly used in traditional Eastern herbalism for addressing kidney stones. This herb is full of polysaccharides, flavonoids, triterpenoids, and polyphenols that have antioxidant and kidney-protecting effects. In addition, pyrrosia leaf is shown to be able to address formation of kidney stones and lower damage to the kidneys.

Schisandra Berry

In traditional Eastern herbalism, schisandra berry is known to tonify the vital energy of the kidneys. This wonderful red berry has anti-inflammatory properties which help support kidney tissues. Schisandra berries owe their powerful benefits to bioactive compounds called lignans. Lignans can support many aspects of our wellness, but the most important here is that it can help reduce damage to the kidneys.

Macrocarpium Berry

Common macrocarpium berry, also known as cornelian cherry or Corni Fructus, contains anthocyanins, a naturally occurring plant pigment that also is greatly beneficial for health. These amazing compounds can support the organs by addressing  oxidative stress, regulating inflammatory response, and managing the deterioration of kidney tissues.

Euryale Seed

Euryale seeds are rich in lignans, tocopherols, peptides, flavonoids, and especially polyphenols. Plant polyphenols are important to supporting kidney health because they have antioxidant effects, which helps fight against oxidative stress that diabetes can have on the kidneys.

Goji Leaf

The berry of the goji plant is widely used in traditional Eastern medicine, but it is not commonly known that the leaves actually display a higher antioxidant activity than the berries! Goji leaves have also been shown to slow the absorption of sugar, which helps to reduce the workload on the kidneys.
