What Kind of Tea Is Good For Your KidneyTea has a long history in China and it is well know for its own clean taste and medical value. However, not all people can drink tea freely. For kidney disease patients, the strong tea is not suitable for them because too much caffeine or other substances that are harmful for the body. On the contrary, they can take some lighter tea which can not increase the kidney’s burden. Here we will recommend some tea which is good for your kidneys.

Before list the kinds of tea, I’d like to share some info about our kidneys and kidney disease. Our kidney is one of important organs to guarantee our body health. Our kidneys produce the urine, regulate our blood pressure, eliminate metabolic wastes, active vitamin D and stimulate the production of red blood cells. That’s to name a few functions of kidneys. However, once you are diagnosed with kidney disease, it means that there is something wrong with your kidneys. In other words, kidneys lose their abilities as they once did. In such condition, patients may suffer high blood pressure, infection, kidney stone, proteinuria, swelling and so on. Therefore, in daily diet, they have a very strict limitation to control illness condition well. Now, let’s see have a look at what kind of tea is good for your kidney?

Green tea

Green tea has been consumed for thousands of years. It contains compounds as polyphenols (plant antioxidants) which inhibit kidney stones and prevent cancers of the prostate, liver, breast and colon. It also reduces cholesterol and is used as a heart tonic. Besides, green tea has anti-inflammatory, astringent and diuretic properties which are good for kidneys.

Hibiscus tea

Hibiscus tea has numerous benefits for kidney kidney disease patients. For example, it can strengthen patient’s immune system due to its abundant vitamin C. It can lower high blood pressure and eliminate swelling because its diuretic properties.

Chamomile tea

Actually, chamomile tea is a good choice for people with kidney disease, which can help them to improve overall condition. It contains high level of glycine, which can relieve muscle cramp. What’s more, it has an obvious effect in relieving pain, like headache, ache due to nervous tension. It can comfort bad emotions like anxiety, tension, anger and so on.

All of these tea are beneficial for your kidneys. But what I want to stress is that you should drink then in right amount. Otherwise, they also can worsen your illness condition. As for how much you can take in one day, you’d better consult a dietitian according to your condition, or you can talk with our Online Doctors directly. Best wishes for you!
