Why is Spirulina Good for the Kidneys?
Taking Spirulina regularly can aid CKD because it has vegetable protein, NOT animal protein that harms the kidneys. Vegetable protein helps recover from weakness especially after dialysis. It is a source of good cholesterol that helps reduce bad cholesterol, the cause of diseases like hypertension, heart disease, stroke, liver disease, kidney disease, etc. Because it is a complete food, spirulina replenishes the nutrients that are lost during dialysis. Spirulina stimulates the bone narrow to produce healthy & mature blood cells like RBC / hemoglobin to help recover from renal anemia (low hemoglobin) a complication of kidney disease. Spirulina is an amino acid methionine & cysteine that helps clean, cell regeneration or revive weak cells and restore liver and kidney functioning. Spirulina has many antioxidants that clean the blood, veins and major organs like the kidneys and liver. Some forms of cleansing or detoxification are the following: sweating, regulated bowel movement and frequent urination.
