Chronic Kidney Disease Supplements | These Two Lower Kidney Inflammation

Today’s video is about chronic kidney disease supplements and C-reactive protein, inflammation, curcumin, vitamin E, and how this can help you if you have chronic kidney disease. 

Today’s information comes from the European Review of Medical and Pharmacological Sciences February, 2023. The title of this research piece is the “Effective Antioxidant supplementation on Oxidative Stress and Pro-Inflammatory Biomarkers in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease, systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.”

What they did was they looked at a lot of different studies and they looked at C-Reactive protein, which when you have an elevated C-Reactive protein, you have to get a blood test first to know if you have, this means you have inflammation in the body, and if you have kidney diseases present. There’s most likely inflammation in the kidney.

It’s not good. It’s something that you should address first. You gotta get a blood test to know if it’s elevated or not. However, the great thing about these supplements is you can still take them whether you get the blood test or not, because they can help your health.

But that’s the definitive way to know. So the conclusion of this, review here is our review suggests that curcumin, and vitamin E supplements effectively lower, serum C-reactive protein in CKD patients, particularly, people undergoing, dialysis.

For people that aren’t on dialysis. They have the high c-reactive protein. You can take these two supplements to lower it. Even if you’re not in dialysis, if you have an elevated creactive protein address it, your kidneys, your health are gonna be better off. You’re gonna have better supported kidneys, healthier kidneys, better kidney markers.

Curcumin is an active component from turmeric. I’ve talked a lot about this. You have to find a good one, with a high absorption, and you have to take about 1500 milligrams per day. 

The second nutrient is vitamin A. This fat soluble nutrient helps, oxidative stress, free radicals, tremendous, potent nutrient, is very beneficial. People who took the curcumin and vitamin E lowered that C-reactive protein.
