Protecting your Kidneys
Protecting your kidneys with diabetes and high blood pressure
Kidneys are remarkable organs. Inside them are millions of tiny blood vessels that act as filters. Their job is to remove waste products from the blood.
High blood sugar may overwork the kidneys, causing them to stop working properly.
How does diabetes cause kidney disease?
When we digest the protein we eat, the waste is created by our bodies. In the kidneys, millions of tiny blood vessels (capillaries) with tiny holes in them act as filters. As blood flows through the blood vessels, small molecules, such as waste products, squeeze through the holes. The waste becomes part of our urine. Useful stuff, such as protein and red blood cells, are too big to pass through the holes in the filter, so they remain in the blood.
Diabetes can damage this system. High levels of blood sugar make the kidneys filter too much blood. All this extra work is hard on the filters. After many years, they start to leak and useful protein is lost in the urine. Having small amounts of protein in the urine is called microalbuminuria.
Who gets kidney disease?
Not everyone with diabetes develops kidney disease. Factors that can influence kidney disease development include genetics, blood sugar control, and blood pressure.
The better a person keeps diabetes and blood pressure under control, the lower the chance of getting kidney disease.
Of course water is a wonderful way to aid the kidneys. Drinking 1/4 cup of “HOT” water at the end of your meals with 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice also aids the digestive process, and in turn, helps to control blood pressure. You can also make that shot of hot at the end of your meals a good cup of tea, my suggestion for today is Loquat Leaf.
Loquat Leaf and fruit (Nispero Japones – Spanish)
Loquat fruit and leaves have high concentrations of Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron, Potassium, Vitamin A and Ascorbic Acid.
Leaves can relieve diarrhea, depression and counteract intoxication.
Loquat Leaf has been scientifically shown to have a large amount of incredible health benefits. And below are some uses for this natural herb that may surprise you.
Loquat Leaf Releases Antioxidants
We know that Loquat leaf helps your body to release anti-oxidants, the wonderful anti-aging agents that your body naturally produces. Anti-oxidants have all kinds of benefits, especially the ability to neutralize harmful toxins in the kidneys. It is commonly used to prevent various diseases, increase immunity, and add life expectancy.
Loquat Leaf Combats Diabetes
One of the Loquat leaf’s most impressive abilities is that it helps combat diabetes. Loquat leaf produces a variety of chemicals called triterpenes, one of which is called tormentic acid. Tormentic acid has been shown to increase insulin production which may help to reduce diabetes.
Loquat Leaf Supports the Pancreas
The only way to fight Diabetes is to either supplement the pancreas’s production of insulin or to help the pancreas produce insulin by regenerating its cells. But we have strong evidence that Loquat Leaf supports pancreatic cells, which increases the production of insulin, helping diabetics in a natural way. Diabetes is a debilitating, degenerative disease. Insulin treatment helps, but anything that can assist the pancreas is of great help.
Loquat Leaf Assists the Liver in Detoxifying Chemicals
The pancreas isn’t the only bodily organ that Loquat leaf helps. It also helps the liver. Loquat leaf contains a substance known as Amygdaline (B-17), and this substance is known to help combat liver disorders as well as supporting the livers ability to process and eliminate poisons in the body. Amygdaline, incidentally, is thought to have its benefits through anti-oxidation effects.
Loquat Leaf Fights Skin Inflammation
One of Loquat leaf’s oldest reported benefits is the reduction of skin inflammation. And when Loquat leaf is used in topical cream, it can combat edema and histamine-induced skin contraction. In short, it helps the skin heal from inflammation of various kinds. Skin inflammation can often be painful and the soothing effect of Loquat leaf can be very beneficial. Taken as a tea will additionally help with inflammatory conditions.
Loquat Leaf Aids in the Fight Against Skin Cancer
Another benefit of Loquat leaf that’s getting much exploration is its ability to fight skin cancer as well. Loquat leaf contains chemicals that can slow skin cancer. Loquat leaf has the unique ability to suppress cancer cells’ ability to reproduce and grow. In this way, it can be a great asset to those with minor forms of skin cancer.
