The kidneys are organs that have a really sophisticated way of working. They produce hormones that help regulate blood pressure and the production of red blood cells, maintain the strength of your bones, detoxify the body, eliminate excess fluids, maintain the acid-base status of the organism,
Your kidneys work harder than you think! The kidneys remove excess water and waste products from the body, filtering 200 liters of blood 24 hours a day. Excess body water and waste is removed from your body through urine. Besides the function of “removal” and “cleaning” the kidneys have several important functions.
They regulate the concentration of electrolytes such as potassium and sodium (salt) in the body.
After all this we can say that they are indispensable organs. Here is one way how you can say “thank you” to your kidneys and be very healthy at the same time. Check out this great smoothie!
