Benefits Of Celery For Kidneys?
Good evening doctor. I just want to ask about washing the kidney. In WA circulating a tutorial about washing the kidneys at a cheap price that only uses Celery Juice. Is this really true or not in accordance with medical science? If it is not in accordance with medicine and people do that is there any negative effect on health because I have heard that if someone in their urine has a positive protein u003c / strong u003e, they may not consume Celery. For your explanation, I thank you
Thank you for the question.
Celery is a plant that is known to contain many antioxidants, such as vitamin C, beta carotene, and flavonoids. With this antioxidant content, celery is good to relieve inflammation, nourish the heart and blood vessels, accelerate the repair of damaged cells, prevent the formation of cancer cells, control blood pressure, and also make you stay young. Not only that, celery also contains fiber-rich and low glycemic index, so it is good for digestion, losing weight, and controlling blood sugar. Various vitamins and minerals contained in celery, for example vitamins A, K, C, potassium, folic acid, iron, and magnesium, which can help maintain the electrolyte balance in the body, neutralize the increase in stomach acid, also optimize cell work.
So far, it is not known an absolute prohibition for people with kidney disorders to consume celery. With its nutritional content as mentioned above, celery consumption, as long as it's done correctly and naturally, can actually have a good impact on the kidneys, because of its role in controlling blood pressure, stabilizing blood sugar, minimizing inflammation, and preventing cell damage. Even so, it is not appropriate to mention that the consumption of celery juice can replace the dialysis procedure (hemodialysis). More precisely, celery juice can be consumed as a preventative measure to avoid kidney problems, and also slow down the deterioration.
But indeed, consumption of celery and other vegetables that contain potassium-rich (such as spinach, green beets, or Swiss chard) should be limited so as not to overload the kidneys. So, consume only naturally, and after consulting a doctor or internist who treats you huh ..
I hope this helps.
