Herbs for Kidney Health

By Kapiva Editorial

Two bean-shaped organs, located right below the rib cage, kidneys carry out one of the most essential bodily functions – waste excretion. Expelling waste matter from our system and keeping it devoid of harmful substances is one thing that we cannot do without. Remember how difficult life gets when the garbageman doesn’t turn up to get rid of the trash from your house for even one day? Same with our body.

Make no mistake, our kidneys are irreplaceable and it’s therefore crucial that those organs remain in a working condition till we breathe our last.

Functions of the Kidneys

Let’s run through what our 8th standard Science textbooks have already told us. Our Kidneys –

  • Control the water balance
  • Maintain electrolyte balance
  • Eliminate toxins and waste products from the body
  • Control blood pressure
  • Produce the hormone Erythropoietin
  • Activate Vitamin D
  • Control Acid-Base balance

Reasons enough to take care of them?

What is Kidney Stones?

One of the major threats to the health of our kidneys is the formation of stones (renal calculi). The condition is called Nephrolithiasis. A rather common incidence in India, the causes of Kidney Stones are vast and varied. When your urine contains more crystal-forming substances — such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid — than the fluid in your urine can dilute, and if your urine lacks substances that can prevent crystals from sticking together, the ideal environment for kidney stones is created. It’s one of the more painful conditions to suffer from, according to many suffering from kidney stones.

Kapiva’s Keep Stones Away does exactly what it says. Featuring Kapiva Stone Go Juice and Kapiva Papaya plus Antioxidants Capsules, the Keep Stones Away combo works towards breaking down kidney stones, and easing the pain and burning sensation during micturition.

Kapiva Stone Go Juice:

This juice for kidney stone is made from 11 potent herbs, this juice helps strengthen your kidneys, protecting you from urinary tract infections. It brings together ingredients like Amla, Pashan Bedh, Baheda, and Harad, which are key to healthy kidneys.

Jokes often do the rounds, hinting at how dispensable your kidneys are – that even if you sell one of them, you can still live a life. Yet, survivors always have a different story to tell. It’s a good idea to protect them as well as you can. Read on to know about Functional Foods and How They Help You
