2013-11-17 15:18

Is Nettle Leaf Tea Good for CKDIn the search for a more natural lifestyle, many people turn to herbal teas, nettle leaf tea is included. As it is often known, nettle leaf tea has been used for hundreds of years as a herbal medicine. Traditional herbalism recognizes several benefits of nettle tea. Is it good for CKD? Here are some medicinal benefits of nettle leaf tea for CKD.

1. Diuretic

The flavonoids in nettle act as diuretics, which de-obstructs the passage of urine flow. Swelling, a common symptom of CKD, results from the retention of fluid and sodium. Drinking nettle tea is helpful for relieving it.

Moreover, it helps the body to expel increased and unnecessary amounts of uric acid and bacteria from the body, which in turn limits the chances of developing urinary tract infections.

Also, nettle tea acts as a renal detox wherein it dilutes any formed kidney stones, washes toxic wastes and metabolic rejects out of the system, purifying blood by forcing the kidneys to discharge higher levels of water in the process, and also ousts bladder gravel.

All this makes it a rather effective depurative.

2. Anti-inflammation

Nettle leaves are thought to have beneficial anti-inflammatory agent—hox alpha. It curbs the action of cytokines which induces inflammation and pain in joints. Once the inflammatory factors in the body are wiped out, the damaged kidneys will recover.

3. Boost immunity

Nettles contain rich vitamins, which has the function of boosting immunity.

4. Other effects

Nettle leaf tea can also be used to lower blood sugar levels, treat diarrhea, nausea, anemia etc.
