The kidneys are a vital part of the urinary system. Located on both sides of the spine, just below the rib cage, they are the body's primary blood filtration system. They are responsible for purifying up to 200 quarts of blood each day, purifying toxins, shedding excess water, and regulating chemical balance. Without them, toxins and other impurities would quickly accumulate in the blood, leading to many dangerous health conditions.
Good kidney health requires drinking plenty of good, clean water, following a diet rich in whole grains,
vegetables, and fruits, and low in processed foods. Frequent exercise can also ensure kidneys stays strong and consistent. The Center for Disease Control recommends that adults get at least two and-a-half hours of medium-intensity aerobic activity and at least 2 days of strength-training each week.

health, by improving circulation and removing impurities from the blood. Goldenrod has long been used throughout Europe for treating urinary tract problems and boosting kidney function.
