Diseases everywhere but healthy living is a choice, keeping your kidney healthy is also a choice.
The kidney is a powerful internal organ which is known for its work of excretion.
Your kidney is very important to you and you knowing how to take care of it is a very useful knowledge. In this post you’ll see how to keep your kidney in it’s optimal condition and for years without any form of disease.
1. Reduce Your Sodium Intake.
Try seasoning with herbs or spices instead of salt. Cut back on foods that are high in sodium. These include: Cured foods and lunch meats Sauces Canned and convenience foods Salted snacks.
2. Cut back on sugars.
Read labels since many foods contain sugar even if they aren’t considered to be sweet treats. For example, condiments, breakfast cereals, and white breads are all high in sugar. There are at least 61 different names for sugar you might find on an ingredients list. These include sucrose, high-fructose corn syrup, barley malt, dextrose, maltose, rice syrup and more.
3. Prepare your own food.
When you make your own meals, you can choose whole grains, fruits, and vegetables that are minimally processed. Packaged foods that are processed are high in sodium and phosphorus additives which are bad for your kidneys.
4. Avoid protein from saturated fats.
While you shouldn’t avoid proteins, or even fats, you should reduce the amount of red meat, full-fat dairy and saturated fats that you eat to only a few times a week. Foods high in saturated fats include: Deli meat sausages cured meats Butter, ghee lard Cream Hard cheeses Coconut or palm oils.
5. Eat unsaturated fats.
You shouldn’t avoid fats totally. Unsaturated fats, such as monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids (which includes healthy Omeg-3 fatty acids), can reduce your cholesterol. To include unsaturated fats in your diet, eat: salmon mackerel sardines Avocados Nuts and seeds sunflower rapeseed olive
