Toxins in our organs- Kidneys!

Posted on

6 Essential ways your Kidneys are keeping you alive right now….

  1. Your Kidneys filter all of your blood every hour. All of your blood passes through your kidneys every four minutes.
  2. Your kidneys help regulate your blood pressure.
  3. Your kidneys are responsible for assimilating vitamins and nutrients. Low blood sugar, headache, fatigue, drowsiness, low energy- these are all linked to poor nutrient assimilation by your kidneys.
  4. Your kidneys manage the production of red blood cells. Your red blood cells carry oxygen to every cell in your body. If your kidneys are not working efficiently, your red blood cell count can waver drastically.
  5. Your kidneys help to regular all body fluids. If you suffer from dehydration (too little water) or edema (too much water), your kidneys are definitely out of balance.
  6. Your kidneys are the only organ that produces active Vitamin D for you. Vitamin D promotes strong, healthy bones and reduces your risk of cardiovascular disease, hypertension and osteoporosis.

So for these top reasons everyone needs to cleanse their Kidneys.

 

Heavy Metal- Aluminum!

Posted on Updated on

Aluminum is the most widely used metal on the planet. It used for some of the most simple and intricate products made- from soda cans to airplanes. Aluminum, the heavy metal isn’t without its share of risks. Overexposure to aluminum, particularly through drinking water, has been implicated in neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s disease. The risk of overexposure to aluminum is greater than it has ever been before. Unlike minerals and vitamins, the human body does not need aluminum to function.

Drinking water usually has anywhere from 0.01 to 0.15 mg per liter of aluminum. However, some potable water contains 0.40 mg per liter or more. Although this accounts for only a fraction of total dietary aluminum, its continued consumption through the water supply may contribute largely to the total aluminum absorbed. Other problematic sources of aluminum include tea, antacids, various food additives, cans, cookware and certain antiperspirants.

Aluminum is a neurotoxin, so it should come as no surprise that it’s been linked to degenerative brain disorders like Alzheimer’s disease. In the same way that overexposure to cigarette smoke damages the lungs, overexposure to aluminum damages the central nervous system. Studies (American Journal of Epidemiology & Ontario study) found that the odds of developing Alzheimer’s disease are approximately 2.5 times greater for communities with drinking water containing more than 100 mg per liter of aluminum than communities below this level.

To reduce your daily aluminum intake, consider using storage containers instead of aluminum, avoid processed edibles and opt for whole organic foods with safe packaging. Also increase intake of Silica rich foods due to its ability to remove aluminum from the body. Sources of silica include oats, millet, barley, potatoes and whole wheat grains, to name just a few.
