Wheatgrass is a potently healthy substance and rich in minerals and other important nutrients that body needs. Usually, wheatgrass is recommended to people with kidney disease which can help relieve some symptoms. However, if kidneys fail to work, they should not consume it. Wheatgrass can do good to people with kidney disease in the following ways.
* It contains the essential enzymes which can enhance renal cellular activity. SOD is one of important enzymes in wheatgrass. It can help to eliminate the free radicals in body. If the levels of SOD in body declines, it can cause pathological changs in cells and make them lose their self-repairing ability. Therefore, it can promote the repairing of the impaired renal cells.
* Anemia is commonly seen in kidney disease. Wheatgrass can help relieve this condition.That is because the body can convert chlorophyll in wheatgrass to hemoglobin.Additionally, dangerous levels of toxins in body can damage to multiple organs in body. Wheatgrass can neutralize those toxic substances and wastes in blood, thus relieving the toxic symptoms.
* Wheatgrass can provide some important nutritional supplements to the patients with Kidney Disease such as vitamin A, 17 amino acids and minerals like iron, calcium and so on. These nutrients are important raw material for rebuilding of kidney structure.
* Wheatgrass can rebuild blood stream and increase the red blood cells count. In this way, it can remit renal ischemia and anoxia in kidneys. If the impaired kidneys can get ample blood and oxygen supply, it will delay the renal fibrosis.
While wheatgrass has so many benefits for people with kidney disease, it is not a cure at all and wheatgrass alone is not enough to control the condition.
Meanwhile, not all people with kidneys are allowed to take wheatgrass. So you should never consume it without your doctor’s permission.
