Can FSGS Patients Eat Fennel

Can FSGS Patients Eat FennelFennel is not only a kind of vegetable, but also a herb. Because of its various health benefits, many people add it into their diet. Can FSGS patients eat fennel? In the following, let’s have a quick look.

Nutrient values of fennel

Fennel contains various minerals and vitamins, which can satisfy some need of body. For example, one raw fennel bulb provides 27% of daily potassium needs, 5% of sodium, 6% vitamin A, 11% calcium, 46% vitamin C, 28% dietary fiber, 5% vitamin B 6 and 10% magnesium, etc. Besides, it is also packed with phosphorus, zinc, copper, manganese, vitamin K, etc.

Health benefits of fennel

-Some of the minerals and vitamins in fennel can help you build strong bones so as to prevent renal bone disease, such as calcium, magnesium and vitamin K.

-High blood pressure is very common among FSGS patients. Dietary nitrates in fennel helps lower blood pressure and protect the heart. Besides, potassium intake in the early stage of FSGS can counteract the effect of sodium so as to lower blood pressure.

-The fiber in fennel helps lower cholesterol in the blood so as to decrease the risk of heart disease.

-Vitamin C and selenium in fennel can stimulate production of killer T-cells to boost immune system so as to protect you from diseases.
