This is the second video we’ve done on probiotics and kidney health. If you haven’t already, check out the first video here.
Probiotic soy milk has shown to help improve several catalogs of kidney function in type 2 diabetic patients.
The useful effect of soy consumption on kidney disease patients is well known, but adding probiotics may enhance it even more.
According to a research conducted by Probiotics & Antimicrobial Proteins Journal. They did a test concluding probiotic soy milk consumption and renal function among type 2 diabetic nephropathy patients.
What the researchers did was they took regular soy milk and added the probiotic Lactobacillus Plantarum to the soy milk and allowed it to ferment for a while. Following that, the group of individuals in the research who had type 2 diabetes consumed 200ml for 8 weeks.
By the end of that time period, the group that had taken the dosage for 8 weeks significantly reduced their inflammation marker, also the cystatin C was lower. Cystatin C is a test conducted as an early indicator of kidney damage.
What does the Cystatin C test mean?
This test assesses the amount of cystatin C in blood to help evaluate kidney function. The cystatin is filtered out of the blood by the glomeruli, clusters of tiny blood vessels in the kidneys that allow water, dissolved substances, and wastes to pass through their walls while retaining blood cells and larger proteins.
Many individuals have been trying out this method at home to improve their kidney function and better their kidney health. What you would require for this is some regular soy milk and the probiotic Lactobacillus Plantarum. Step after that would be to place the pill in the soy milk and let it sit and ferment for at least 24-48 hours. You would then consumer under 7 ounces a day for around 8 weeks to see effective results.
This could help manage the inflammation because probiotics are naturally beneficial for kidney health. The two main types of probiotics for kidney health and improved kidney function would be Lactobacillus acidophilus & Bifidobacterium logum.
Overall, studies have found and proven that probiotic soy milk containing Lactobacillus resulted in a significant reduction in the presence of albumin in the urine. A damaged kidney lets some albumin pass into the urine.
