Our two kidneys are the filtering system for our blood. They excrete things our bodies don’t need and keep what it does. Proper nutrition keeps the kidneys working properly and helps prevents kidney disease.
The kidneys need vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and omega-3 fats each day to work properly. It’s equally important to limit salt consumption, since salt isn’t good for the kidneys or the heart. Maintaining a healthy body weight also helps keep the kidneys from getting overtaxed from filtering lots of poor-quality foods and beverages.
