Is Taking Barley Grass Good for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

Is Taking Barley Grass Good for Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsIt is well known that barley is an important crop for most people. Few people know the health benefits of parley grass. In the following, we will introduce some of their health benefits and whether taking barley grass is good for Nephrotic Syndrome patients or not.

Alleviate hyperlipidemia

For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, hyperlipidemia is a common symptom which is caused by too much protein leaks into the urine. Barley grass has cholesterol-lowering effects, which attributes to the beta-sitosterol components. It is thought to act by inhibiting the intestinal absorption of cholesterol and accelerating its catabolism to bile acid.

Boost immune system

Nephrotic Syndrome patients often have a poor immune system. And infection, cold and some other aliments can cause the relapse of kidney disease. Barley grass is rich in vitamins, which can neutralize the free radicals in your body and boost immune system. It is said that barley grass has seven times more vitamin C than a single organ.

Balance pH

When kidney function impairs, patients easily suffer from acidosis. Consuming barley grass has also shown to balance the pH of the body. Because it is very alkalizing and useful for helping the cells in the body function optimally.

Support cardiovascular function

Cardiovascular disease is the main cause of death for kidney patients. Barley grass juice lowers the levels of free radicals, total cholesterol and low-density-lipoprotein cholesterol so as to help you support cardiovascular function.

Barley grass is also high in calcium and vitamin K, which can strengthen your bones. It also helps weight loss, increase energy, improve sleep quality, etc.

Though taking barley grass has so many health benefits, you had better consult your doctor before you add it into your diet, because the physical conditions are different from patients to patients. If you have any other questions, please contact online doctor.
