Is wheatgrass bad for kidneys?

The main task of your kidneys is to remove waste products and excess fluid from your body through the production of urine. If your kidneys are not doing their job properly, these toxins and excess fluids can build up inside the body, so efficient kidneys are essential in maintaining good health.

Of course, if you suspect you have a specific kidney problem, you should consult your doctor. However, scientists have identified several lifestyle habits that will support the general health of your body and your kidneys and drinking our raw organic wheatgrass juice can be incorporated into this. 

  • Stay hydrated. It’s recommended that we drink two litres of water per day to help flush toxins through our kidneys and the good news is that you are contributing to your daily quota by mixing our organic wheatgrass juice with water, or a water-heavy juice or broth. The high level of nutrients and antioxidants in wheatgrass juice also helps to cleanse the urinary tract and the kidneys.
  • Eat healthily. We can support our kidneys by eating nutrient-rich foods and our raw wheatgrass juice is full of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes, all of which contribute to maximum digestive health.
  • Maintain a healthy weight. Being overweight raises blood pressure, which puts a strain on your kidneys, so you should keep active and eat well to sustain an appropriate BMI. Our 100% organic raw wheatgrass juice is packed with nutrients, vitamin B12 and chlorophyll; just one sachet has the equivalent nutritional value of 1½lbs of broccoli, making it a healthy low-calorie alternative to sugary snacks.

Whilst wheatgrass juice has many beneficial properties, people with decreased kidney function, need to take special care when changing their diet and should discuss this with their doctor.
