Super Foods for Kidney Health | These Foods Repair Kidney Damage
In this video we go over super foods for kidney health. The first food is soy products. These include edamame beans, tofu, tempeh, and more. Soy proteins are really, really good for the kidney. They are really preferred, and show a lot of kidney benefits. The next food is blueberries. I try to have one or two cups every day for my kidney disease. It’s a super food for the kidneys. Next is nuts, a small amount of nuts, not a large amount, around six to ten nuts at a time. That small amount shows some benefit in kidney health, but too much is not a good thing.
Plant-based milks that are fermented. So taking a culture starter and fermenting a plant-based milk and drinking that, those probiotics, where that fermentation comes from, really helps the kidney toxins, helps your kidney health. Finally, we have Buckwheat or Kasha. It’s a grain, and that grain has shown to be helpful in diabetic kidney disease. And having that grain over, let’s say potatoes, rice, pasta, has shown more benefit.
In this video we go over multiple foods and food groups that are great for restoring kidney health and kidney function. This information is sourced straight from the National Library of Medicine. The first food group we go over that has kidney benefits is soy products. Soy foods show possible benefits for people with chronic kidney disease, also known as CKD, dialysis patients, and those with a kidney transplant as a low-saturated fat, cholesterol-free meat replacement.
Compared to animal protein, soy is also a high quality protein, but is alternatively plant-based, making it cholesterol-free and low in saturated fat. Some soy products kidney patients should try include; Edamame, large soybeans that are harvested while still green, usually frozen in the pod or shelled and are typically served as an appetizer, soy milk, tempeh, and tofu.
