  2. The kidneys reabsorb and redistribute 99% of the blood volume and only 0.1% of the blood filtered becomes urine.
  3. Refined carbohydrates and sugar help the body make kidney stones.
    SO STOP EATING THEM!
  4. Diabetes and high blood pressure are the two leading causes of kidney failure.
  5. Your kidneys receive about 56 litres of blood per hour.

These are just a few reasons why we need to keep our kidneys in fine form! They play such a huge role in how our body functions so stop procrastinating and start nourishing! You can start with this amazing KINDNESS KIDNEY CLEANSER and then try out my…

Notes

  1. For all of those hardcore sweet tooth’s out there! This isn’t a really sweet or strong tasting smoothie. This is why I love it! It’s super refreshing, simple and if you were wanting to sweeten it up, just add some more of your sweetener of choice.
  2. You could chill this recipe into ice blocks and they would make a delicious treat for the whole family.

Serve chilled and Happy Blending!
