Health benefits of cabbage for FSGS patients

-Detoxify the blood

FSGS makes your kidney function decline, as a result, waste can not be expelled from the blood timely. Cabbage is rich in vitamin C and sulphur, which can remove toxins, such as free radicals and uric acid from the blood so as to reduce their damage to the kidneys.

-Keep your bones healthy

Bone disease is very common to see in kidney patients, because the damaged kidneys can affect the absorption of calcium and some other minerals. Cabbage is a good source of vitamin K, which makes your bone stronger and healthier so as to delay bone disease.

-Boost immune system

When your immune system is strong, you can overcome all the diseases. Cabbage is packed with various vitamins, especially vitamin C, which can neutralize the free radicals in your body so as to strengthen your immune system.
