What Makes Resveratrol The Best Supplement For Kidney Disease?
Resveratrol, a plant compound commonly found in grapes and red wines, has been shown to improve heart health and even help prevent certain cancers. But, did you know, it’s also been recently shown to help improve polycystic kidney disease significantly.
The mechanism by which it does this involves its substantial antioxidant properties. Resveratrol is very effective when it comes to scavenging reactive oxygen species, substances which damage DNA over time, and it additionally can help shield against age-related ailments like kidney disease. Antioxidants, which are abundant in Resveratrol, also help boost immunity which aids the body in ridding itself of any illnesses.
Resveratrol can help delay the progression of polycystic kidney disease due to these properties, and many more. In polycystic kidney disease, the kidneys develop noncancerous sacs which cluster around and damage the organs over time. In a recent study, participants with polycystic kidney disease or PKD as it’s commonly known, experienced reduced blood urea nitrogen and creatinine levels, a decrease in cyst volume density and a significant reduction in inflammation. In 3D models, it even was able to prevent new cysts from forming. Needless to say, this is very promising news for PKD patients.
As we mentioned, Resveratrol can be found in grapes, wine and the like, but these quantities are insufficient for treating PKD. A therapeutic dose is needed to cause any significant change and this can be found in a high quality supplement. Taking Resveratrol, coupled with maintaining a healthy, kidney-friendly diet and other healthcare providers can go a long way in healing your polycystic kidney disease and helping you live a healthier life.
When it comes to how much and what types of resveratrol to use choose the highest milligram content and take as upwards of 5000mg per day. Begin gradually with 1000-1500mg and keep testing your blood work and increasing your dose gradually. It is best to choose a supplement manufacturer with cGMP (cerftified good manufacturing practices).
