Flush out Kidney Toxins With Water and Supplements | Clear out Nephrotoxins
This video is about nephrotoxicity, toxins to your kidney that are damaging to the kidney. These toxins come from medications, drug and alcohol use, food poisoning, and a variety of other things including air pollution, or inhaling too much smoke from a campfire.
We’re going to talk about those type of nephrotoxins and the basic thing you can do and more advanced things you can do to flush out kidney toxins from your body. If you come into contact with some of these nephrotoxins, the first and most basic thing we want to do to help clear it out of the body is hydrate. You want to drink a lot of water. If you go to a hospital and you have nephrotoxins, the first thing they’re going to do is give you lots of fluid through IV bags.
I don’t want you over hydrating, unless you see a medical doctor. Make sure to always see a medical doctor if you see nephrotoxins. You should drink a safe amount of water that gives you good hydration. This adds up to be half your body weight in ounces. If you’re 200 pounds, that’s a hundred ounces of water. If you’re 150 pounds, that’s 75 ounces of water. First you want to hydrate, that’s always the most basic thing that’s going to clear out any type of nephrotoxins.
Second, you can take different supplements. Start with basic antioxidants like vitamin e, vitamin c. These are going to be protective to your kidney while these nephrotoxins are flushed out. Then there’s always different herbs you can take. Milk thistle is one that’s beneficial. N-A-C is another that’s extremely protective against nephrotoxins so that could be something else you can take.
Milk thistle I did mention quickly that’s something shown to be protective against nephrotoxins. That is a herb and you can take up to 1500 milligrams a day. If you’re on a lot of medication you might want to just avoid it because it can speed up one of your liver enzyme systems so i would say stick with the safer stuff like hydration, vitamin c, vitamin e, and N-A-C.
