Previously we looked at nutrition for kidney health. As you could see from the different suggested daily dosage people, have different requirements and preferences. Also, you cannot just eat a super healthy diet, and expect to get the exact amount nutrients you need, because there might be limitations because of negative environment toxins, depleted soils, use of chemicals, etc. It might become almost impossible to get all the nutrients that one requires. That’s why it is useful to take a look at supplements and vitamins for kidney health.
According to the research that was published at PubMed, US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, some groups of people have a high risk of vitamin deficiency, and supplementation can help to avoid “chronic diseases, including coronary heart disease, cancer, and osteoporosis.”
Now different supplements became more popular and recommended because it is more than clear that many people have issues with getting enough support from the food. Especially it is noticeable in the fish oil supplements like Omega 3 fish oil or some probiotics. People might have different nutrition deficiency including vitamin D (for which we have Balance-Vitamin D supplement), folate, magnesium, iron, zinc, etc. They can also be part of the supplements to improve kidney function. They help metabolism and biochemistry in general. Kidneys are the main organs that deal with the release of various unnecessary substances out of the organism.
For Nutrition Mor’s it is very important to draw attention also to various aspects regarding supplements itself because I have seen some problems with women saying that they have used one or another supplement, but there isn’t any good impact from it, or they have done more harm to the health than good.
Why choose reliable supplements and vitamins:
- Labels might be misleading (e.g., dosage of the pill doesn’t correspond the reality)
- Poorly absorbed, because it is cheap
- Contain numerous allergens, colors, fillers, and additives
- Raw materials like herms might lack testing for toxins (e.g., mercury)
- Lack of quality (e.g., the producer doesn’t follow all the standards)
We use only clinically proved and investigated supplements, which work.
Why might you need to use supplements and vitamins?
If we are talking particularly about their connection to kidneys, some foods might need limiting because of kidney disease or some other problems. Instead, you will have a requirement to use certain supplements to improve kidney function and the same for vitamins. However, you should also be careful with vitamins bad for kidneys because of their special constancy. Only a specialist and tests can find out the best solution. A simple blood test tells what the body lacks and then there can be a special diet with supplements and vitamins like kidney repair supplement. Some might also need special vitamins for kidneys and liver.
