Your kidneys filter out toxins and waste from your bloodstream. Because toxins can affect your entire body, supporting your kidneys is crucial, and can help keep you in good health. Without a planned approach to cleansing your body systems, toxins can build up and affect the function of your kidneys and liver, as well as the neighboring organs.
Toxins can come from either outside or inside our bodies. Exogenous toxins (i.e., coming from outside your body) are poisons or pollutants introduced into the body through air, food, water, or another outside source. Endogenous toxins (those originating within your body systems) consist of byproducts of metabolizing natural bacteria and yeast. We all encounter toxins in our day to day lives, so it’s important to cleanse!
Your kidneys are important organs, so consider building a healthy foundation for them to do their job! Just drinking plenty of purified water is a first step toward an effective flush. What else can you do?
Some simple, at-home approaches include:
Cranberry juice. Research shows that cranberries can help fight against urinary tract infections, and my also be helpful in cleansing the kidneys of excess calcium oxalate (one of the main contributors to kidney stones).
Beet Juice. Betain, a very beneficial phytochemical in beet juice, has antioxidant qualities and can help clear calcium phosphate buildup.
Lemon Juice. Naturally acidic lemon juice has been shown to increase citrate levels in urine, a factor that discourages kidney stones from forming.
These easy to use at home solutions will definitely help. But, if you need more of a cleanse, consider adding a specially formulated supplement.
