Is Wheatgrass Beneficial for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

Is Wheatgrass Beneficial for Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsWheatgrass is said to be beneficial for kidney, well can it be used by Nephrotic Syndrome patients? Nephrotic Syndrome is a common kidney problem and always marked by severe swelling in the body like eyelid, face, foot, legs and ankle. With diagnosis of Nephrotic Syndrome, we must be very careful about many aspects like our diet, drinking, living habits and even common medicine that are bad for kidney. Wheatgrass is a food that is reported to have many health-benefits. For this reason, many Nephrotic Syndrome patients wonder if they will be benefited from it.

As for the question: Is wheatgrass beneficial for Nephrotic Syndrome patients? I am sure the answer is :”Yes, wheatgrass is beneficial for Nephrotic Syndrome patients in some ways”. The followings are the several benefits of wheatgrass on Nephrotic Syndrome:

1. Wheatgrass is a nutrient-rich type of young grass in the wheat family. For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, they can get a group of nutrients from wheatgrass such as calcium, magnesium, amino acids, chlorophyll, vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E.

2. Wheatgrass increases red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure. Persistent high blood pressure damage kidney tissues directly, so tight control of high blood pressure is very important for Nephrotic Syndrome patients who have hypertension. Wheatgrass lowers blood pressure by dilating blood vessels. Seeing from this aspect, wheatgrass is beneficial for Nephrotic Syndrome.

3. Wheatgrass also help to neutralizes toxins. Kidney is an important internal organ because it is responsible for cleaning toxins away from kidney. When kidney function is affected due to Nephrotic Syndrome, many toxins will build up in the blood. Many active compounds found in grass juice are proven to be able to cleanse, neutralize and digest toxins in our cells.

Wheatgrass is beneficial for Nephrotic Syndrome patients in many ways, but it is possible for them to get recovery by taking wheatgrass. In cases of Nephrotic Syndrome, kidney function keeps decreasing because kidney tissues are injured severely. Therefore, if we want to get kidney function improved, we must repair damaged kidney tissues. Only in this way, can Nephrotic Syndrome be controlled fundamentally.
