Kidney Health and Tea

Kidney Health and Tea

The kidneys are a pair of bean-shaped organs on either side of your spine, below your ribs and behind your belly. Each kidney is about 4 or 5 inches long, roughly the size of a large fist. The kidneys' job is to filter your blood. 

Teas that are best suited to help the kidney

Green Tea: Green tea contains an even smaller amount of caffeine, about 30 mg of caffeine for an average 8-ounce cup. 

There is less potassium in green tea than black tea, and it has no phosphorus and only 2 mg of sodium!

  • A cup of green tea is full of compounds called "polyphenols," which function as antioxidants.
  • Green tea also has a high level of epigallocatechin gallate which also creates a hindrance in the formation of kidney stones. Doctors also recommend green tea to prevent kidney damage and end-stage renal failure.
  • Green tea contains ECG(Epicatechin gallate) which is a potent anti-oxidant preventing kidney damage. It also reduces inflammation and cell death. Thus, it proves to be a potent anti-cancer therapy.
  • Green tea also prevents oxidative stress caused during malaria infection that leads to impaired renal function, which is a common reason for death among malarial patients.
  • If you already have stones in your kidney then also green tea is helpful as it also helps in the removal of stones.
  • Green tea also shows a positive impact on the patients going through atherosclerotic dialysis.
  • Green tea also helps to improve certain things regarding kidney disease which include blood urea, nitrogen, uric acid, creatinine levels, and glucose excretion.

White Tea

White tea is unique because leaves are picked much earlier in the growing season, giving them less time to oxidize.

  • White tea infusion (Camelia sinensis) has antioxidants properties.
  • The infusion contains polyphenols that induce antioxidant response element (ARE) response via nuclear factor E2-related factor 2 (NRF2).
  • Adriamycin (ADR) has anti-tumour properties and oxidative effects. Oxidative stress is related to a variety of kidney diseases.
  • Oxidative stress is prevented through long-term intake of white tea

Some Do’s and Don’ts for Tea to be Effective 

  • Do drink at least 1-3 cups every day. Experts point out that because polyphenols are not retained in the body for long, it stands to reason that frequent, ongoing tea consumption is necessary to see the benefits.
  • Don’t drink more than 5 cups a day. Too much of anything is bad for health.
  • Do brew your tea correctly and for not more than 5 minutes.
  • Do not add sugar to your tea. Sugar has its own quality and it may not help the kidney.
  • Do consult your doctor if you feel the need.
  • Don’t think Tea alone will do the trick, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle for a healthy kidney.

Conclusion

The message is loud and clear – Tea leads to a healthy, happy kidney.
