Kidney Cleanse

 


[Healthy Kidneys | Kidney Cleansing Nutrients
[Kidney Function]

Healthy Kidneys

The kidneys are vital organs of elimination for the body.  Kidneys eliminate harmful substances that are detoxified in the liver and filter the blood.  Kidneys then reabsorb water and other selective substances back into the blood.  When the kidneys excrete body fluids, valuable minerals are lost.  Kidney Cleanse ingredients keep the kidneys clear and healthy.*

Kidney Cleansing Nutrients

Bearberry Extract also known as Uva Ursi, is considered a diuretic in the botanical classification of herbs. This mild action can enhance the excretion of fluids from the body.* Bearberry decreases the accumulation of uric acid, a natural component of urine. Uric acid build up may crystallize and get deposited into the kidneys, joints and blood stream. Bearberry soothes and strengthens the membranes of the urinary system.* There is a compound present in the bearberry leaves, known as Arbutin, that is responsible for its antiseptic activity. Bearberry’s antiseptic properties help regulate normal flora in the urinary system.*

Dandelion Root is a nourishing herb that contains highly assimilable minerals. In the botanical classification of herbs, it is considered a blood purifier, having most of its beneficial action on the liver. To have healthy kidneys you must also have a healthy liver, as they both support the body’s detoxification process. Dandelion strengthens the liver by promoting bile secretion and provides a gentle cleansing action in the elimination of metabolic waste.* Dandelion has a mild diuretic action that aids the body’s removal of excess fluids through the kidneys. The kidneys eliminate harmful substances that are detoxified by the liver.

Nettles is another nourishing herb rich in minerals, especially iron and potassium. It has mild diuretic action and aids the kidneys with elimination of uric acid.*

Yellow Dock is considered a bitter herb that promotes digestion and supports liver/kidney function.* It is high in some minerals including iron, manganese and potassium.

Short Buchu Leaf Extract has a mild diuretic action and immune supporting activity helpful with urinary system function.*

Chlorophyll is the pigment that makes plants green. Through photosynthesis, it absorbs sunlight energy and converts it into plant energy. When we consume Chlorophyll, it is transferred into our blood and cell tissue. Scientifically, its molecular structure closely resembles human hemoglobin, the pigment that makes our blood red.

When taken internally, Chlorophyll can oxygenate human cells by helping to build red blood cells. Its detoxifying and immune enhancing qualities* may be helpful for heavy metal build up. Chlorophyll neutralizes acids and toxins in the blood and helps eliminate them from the body through the kidneys. Chlorophyll is rich in vitamin K which forms a compound in the body that inhibits the formation of calcium oxalate crystals which in turn promotes healthy kidneys.*

B vitamins are water soluble and are flushed out of the body regularly. They are not stored in the body and any excess is excreted. B vitamins must be replenished daily through whole foods and supplementation. B vitamins are necessary for a healthy nervous system and they assist the liver in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and proteins.* Stress, alcohol, tobacco, excessive sugar and caffeine can decrease the levels of B vitamins in the body.

Astaxanthin is a member of the carotenoid family and is a powerful newly discovered antioxidant that helps protect against more types of free radicals than any other antioxidant. * It is highly bioavailable because it binds to a lipid (fat) molecule and enters the bloodstream more readily than other antioxidants. Astaxanthin is a fat-soluble nutrient that is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, which enhances its effectiveness. The natural form of Astaxanthin is derived from the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis and is at least 10 times more effective as an antioxidant than beta-carotene. Astaxanthin supports kidney function by inhibiting proteinuria, a condition where too much protein in the urine may affect kidney health. The mitochondria is the site of the cell’s energy production and metabolic activity. The advanced pharmaceutical technology behind Astaxanthin provides an excellent delivery system for nutrients to penetrate the mitochondria of the cell, which promotes a cleansing and therapeutic action at the cellular level. Astaxanthin  enhances the actions of Vitamin C and E in the body. Astaxanthin is 100-500 times more effective than vitamin E with inhibiting lipid peroxidation, which is the destruction of fatty acids and proteins in cell membranes that can cause oxidative damage. *Cumulative, oxidative damage to lipids in cell membranes may increase the risk of age-related health conditions. Results from clinical studies testing the safety of Astaxanthin have shown no known toxicity. astaZANTHINT brand Astaxanthin is a highly concentrated natural extract from H.pluvialis micro algae.

Vitamins B6 and B1 have mild diuretic action that helps in the body’s process of elimination.* B6 is needed for the body to assimilate protein and fat. B6 is helpful with stabilizing urea levels. Urea is a breakdown waste product of protein metabolism which should be excreted. When urea builds up and is not eliminated properly, it can result in kidney problems. B6 is necessary for the absorption of B12. B12 helps with the proper assimilation of fats carbohydrates and protein. Vitamin B12 helps the body to rebuild liver cells. *

Kidney Function

When the kidneys excrete body fluids, valuable minerals are lost as well. Magnesium and potassium are especially important minerals to replace. Magnesium and vitamin B6 work together in the body to inhibit and dissolve excess calcium.* Potassium is an essential mineral that helps filter out body waste along with regulating the body’s water balance.*

  • The kidneys are located at the back of the abdomen, below the diaphragm on each side of the spine.
  • The kidneys are vital organs of elimination for the body.
  • The kidneys eliminate many harmful substances that are detoxified by the liver.
  • The kidneys filter the blood and then reabsorb water and other selective substances back into the blood.
