Herbs For Kidney Health: Kidney is an important organ in our body. They help to remove urine and toxins from the body. Kidneys remove excess water and waste from the blood and produce urine. Kidneys excrete nitrogen, potassium, sodium and phosphate through urine. The kidneys regulate fluid balance, producing hormones that help regulate blood pressure. The kidneys stimulate the production of red blood cells. The kidneys also produce a hormone called erythropoietin that stimulates the production of red blood cells. If the function of the kidneys slows down, toxins build up in them. Due to this, it can cause kidney stones, kidney infection, chronic kidney diseases.
