Creatinine level implies the amount of waste products in your bloodstream or urine. Some studies have shown that nettle leaf has a significant effect on lowering high creatinine level. Then, how?
Nettle is popular all over the world. It is rich in vitamin C, vitamin B12, vitamin A and calcium and its leaf and seed are of great medical value. So it is a good habit for patients with high creatinine to consume nettle.
Its leaf is powerful kidney tonic and it can help improve kidney function. When renal function is improved, extra creatinine will be discharged naturally by the kidneys and its level will decrease accordingly.
Nettle leaf has the function of anti-inflammation by inhibiting the production of inflammatory substances in the body. It is also a good choice to treat kidney infection and urinary tract infection.
Most people consume it by adding it into boiling water. That is called nettle leaf tea. Drinking this tea can help increase urine volume and remove the metabolic wastes, promote the renal excretion, purify blood and strengthen the body, which achieves the goal of lowering high creatinine level. The proper dosage is 3-4 cups per day, 2-4g/d and 3 times each day.
In addition to this, nettle leaf tea can also help clear excessive uric acid from the blood. It is also particularly effective as a diuretic, so it helps lower hypertension as well as swelling.
Although it can lower creatinine level and improve kidney function, if does not mean you can consume it freely. When you are taking some certain medications, such as anti-hypertensive drugs or blood-thinning medicines, you ‘d better keep away from it. Furthermore, if you are allergic to it, or you have some stomach discomforts, you should avoid it.
