Supplements can help reduce this load and aid the kidney and bladder to filter and expel waste effectively.
The kidneys and bladder – along with the rest of the renal system – are crucial for filtering waste and toxins, and dispersing them from the body. A heavy load on these organs caused by high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, smoking, high protein intake and drugs (both medical and recreational) can have disastrous long term consequences. Fortunately, there are supplements that can help reduce this load and aid the kidney and bladder to filter and expel waste effectively. For example, Celery extract can help with mild fluid retention. Cranberry is a potent, natural antimicrobial that can prevent bacteria from adhering to the urinary tract (which is helpful in urinary tract infections). Horsetail (Equisetum) may also provide soothing relief to urinary tract issues.
