Kura Nephro C
FORM: 120 Capsules
Maintains a healthy kidney.
Diet is extremely important when the kidneys are damaged. And if you have a chronic kidney problem there may be special nutrient and dietary requirements that will need to be followed to ensure that the situation doesn't get any worse. One specific requirement is that a low-protein diet be maintained by those with abnormal kidney function to prevent worsening of their kidney disease. The diet is often low in sodium and potassium as well, so additional supplementation with certain nutrients may be required. For some people on a special diet relating to this issue, fluid restriction may also be necessary. And if you have diabetes along with kidney disease, a low-carbohydrate diet may need to be implemented.
Let's face it, most people just don't realize how important kidney function is in maintaining their health. They are vital organs that perform many functions; the most important being to help keep your blood clean, chemically balanced and 'you' properly hydrated. The kidneys are bean-shaped organs, each about the size of your fist. They are located near the middle of your back, just below the rib cage. About every 30 minutes or so your kidneys filter the total volume of blood in your body, removing about 2 quarts of waste products and excess water each day. So, the last thing you need is to develop a kidney disease or other kidney related pathologies that will tax the ability of the kidneys to do their job to the maximum.
If you develop a kidney problem as stated, proper nutrition is extremely important during this stressful period. This is why taking stress supporting nutrients such as those found in Nephro C are of the utmost importance. Supporting the body by taking the proper nutrients is essential for healing to occur. However, you have to be careful not to over tax the system with too much nutrient base at one time, since the body is already producing its own metabolic by-products. The waste and extra water that the kidneys produce become urine, which flows to your bladder for storage and for disposal. The increased production of dilute urine that occurs during kidney failure may cause deficiencies in important nutrients like the B vitamins and other electrolytes. So, it follows that taking supplemental nutrients such as the B vitamins and other micro nutrients to prevent deficiencies of any kind is a prudent way to avoid potential problems.
The wastes in your blood are the end result of the normal breakdown of food during the various digestive processes, which also include other systemic metabolic by-products that your body makes. In a kidney that is not working properly nutrients are not reabsorbed as they should be. Typically in a healthy kidney some of the essential vitamins, amino acids, glucose, hormones and other vital substances are returned to the bloodstream, with any excesses discarded in urine. But in an unhealthy kidney this does not occur as it should, therefore these nutrients need to be replaced. The kidneys work on maintaining a healthy balance of the right amounts of nutrients in the blood stream such as sodium, phosphorus, potassium and vitamins returning back to the blood stream what ever it needs.
Nutri-Force has developed Nephro C to ensure the right amount of water soluble nutrients are made available to the body on a regular basis, to assist in the healing process. Once in the body these nutrients work as co-factors in the utilization of other synergistic macro and micro nutrients that the body needs to function at optimum, in the amounts that will not over burden the already over taxed kidneys. Nephro C is just one more way you can count on Nutri-Force to care for you, and ensure your longevity even when you are down.
Understanding how your kidneys work can help you to keep them healthy, so you can take care of them!
