The kidneys are our main filtration organ and are responsible for filtering toxins from the blood, which is why they should always be kept healthy. However, our unhealthy diet and lifestyle overloads our liver with toxins, which can result in big health problems.
In order to keep the kidneys healthy and properly functioning, you should drink plenty of water and clean your body with a detox method every once in a while. Kidney stones, toxic overload and kidney diseases can all lead to kidney damage and failure, which can be fatal, so it’s vital to do everything in our power to prevent this. Although these problems can be treated with medications, the best way to resolve them is naturally, and parsley can help.
Parsley and its effect on our kidneys
Parsley is a herb rich in numerous essential nutrients such as vitamins A, C and K, as well as minerals such as iron. The herb has anti-inflammatory, antihepatotoxic, hypoglycemic, hypouricemic and estrogenic properties, and is also a powerful diuretic. Parsley can boost your urine production and flow and prevent kidney stones, while also improving the function of your kidneys. Here’s how to prepare a nice cup of parsley tea which can clean your kidneys and boost their function:
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- ½ teaspoon turmeric
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- A cup of grape juice
- A cup of cranberry juice
Put the grapes in a glass jar and pour the cranberry juice over them, then add the lemon juice, turmeric and ginger and mix well. Leave the mixture for 30 minutes so everything can infuse, then strain it and drink the beverage regularly to keep your kidneys clean and healthy.
All of the ingredients have a positive impact on the health of your kidneys. Lemons contain citric acid which can prevent kidney stones, while turmeric relieves inflammation in the kidneys, prevents the clamping of blood platelets and blood clots as well.
Ginger can stimulate your circulation and eliminate toxins from your blood, while cranberries will make your urine acidic, effectively preventing a variety of infections from reaching the kidneys and urinary tract.
