The BIOFITON® Healthy Kidneys supplement has a diuretic, detoxifying, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic effect, and also has properties that normalize the function of the glomeruli.
The effect of BIOFITON® Healthy Kidneys is aimed at obtaining a diuretic and hypotensive effect, as well as at restoring the right level of necessary vitamins and microelements in the body. It improves diuresis (the volume of urine formed over a period of time), with potassium salts not being removed along with the urine. Healthy Kidneys are used in the prevention and comprehensive therapy of inflammatory diseases of the kidneys and the urinary tract, accompanied by a decrease in the secretion of urine and nitrogen, urolithiasis, cystitis, diseases of the small pelvis.

Just as ash is produced as a result of the combustion process, various toxins are formed in the body’s metabolism. One of them is ammonia – a very toxic substance. If the special, very intricately arranged systems did not neutralize it and remove it from our body, serious poisoning would occur.

Ammonia is transformed in the liver cells into a non-toxic compound called urea, and is excreted as a result of continuous kidney function. However, their significance for human life functions is not limited to this. The kidneys regulate the amount of fluid in the cells and tissues and the concentration of sodium, calcium, phosphorus and other biologically important substances dissolved in it. In this way, the kidneys perform a very responsible function – they release the body from poisons and help maintain the biochemical balance of its internal environment.

Kidneys are an even organ. They are located on both sides of the spine, slightly below the diaphragm. In the kidney, we distinguish a thin outer layer, called the cortex, and the inner layer, i.e. the light one, which has the form of pyramids and is the main mass of the organ. The cortical layer consists of renal bodies, of which there are about two million in both kidneys – not all of them work simultaneously, but their activity depends on the needs of the body. Each kidney body consists of a cup-like double-walled capsule and a glomerulus of arterial capillaries lying in it. There is a narrow channel at the bottom of the capsule. At first it has a strange twisted shape, then it goes into a long straight tube to finally reach the top of the pyramid. Here in the inner layer it creates a loop and then turns back. Approaching the cortical layer, the channel twists again several times.

All these elements – the renal bodies – the first order twisted tubules, the straight tubes with the second order tubules loop together form the working structural and functional unit of the kidney, which is called the nephron.

How does nephron work? Into the glomerular capillaries of the arteries located in the cup-like double-walled capsule, blood flows in a wide artery, and it escapes from there through a narrow blood vessel. Due to differences in the cross-section of blood vessels, blood pressure in the capillaries is always elevated. This, in turn, conditions the passage (excretion) of water, salt and some organic substances, in particular urea, from the blood through the walls of the capillaries to the calyx cavity of the capsule. Filtered in the capsule, the so-called primary urine goes to the first order winding tubules, passes through the loop and returns to the second order winding tubules. However, there are very significant changes in this way. The thing is that the arterial vessel draining blood from the capsule of the capillaries then again falls into the capillaries, which densely entwine both the tubules and the nephron loop. Passing this way, the primary urine returns to the blood in the blood vessels around the nephron a large part of the water, all glucose and a number of other chemical compounds necessary to nourish the body’s cells. As a result, the so-called secondary urine is much more concentrated than the primary urine in the nephron. It goes to a separate collecting coil; each such coil combines several nephrons. Through the collectibles, urine is continuously poured into the renal pelvis at the entrance to the kidney, i.e. in the place where a hollow is located in the center of the bean-shaped kidney. The renal pelvis passes directly into the ureter – a narrow flexible tube, and both ureters – the pathways leading urine out of the kidneys – enter the bladder. The capacity of this tank is between 200 and 600 milliliters, but it can expand. When the bladder fills up, signals begin to reach the central nervous system about irritation.
This is the complicated route of unnecessary, ballast substances, from which blood is freed due to kidney activity. Their activity is extremely high. Scientists estimate that per unit of their mass, the kidneys receive 50 times more blood than the whole body. On average, 1800 liters of blood pass through it daily. This is a huge amount, considering that there are only 5 liters of blood in the human body. Only at such intensity of work, secreting within a day 1.5 liters of urine, the kidneys are able to cleanse the cells of our body from harmful substances. That is why it is so important to protect them from all kinds of diseases.
The most common kidney diseases are various types of inflammation in the kidneys and nephrosis. They infect various parts of the kidney tissue.
Inflammation of the kidneys usually appears as a complication after previous infectious diseases such as angina, scarlet fever, and rubella. Usually, the first factor triggering the disease is strong body cooling.
The causes of nephrosis can be very different: intoxication, especially mercury chloride, long-term use of strong drugs. Often, kidney disease is associated with damage to blood vessels and impaired blood circulation.
Acute and chronic glomerulonephritis is a glomerulonephritis with a primary focus. In terms of longevity and forecasts, it is one of the most severe kidney diseases – it leads to their failure. Symptoms of this pathology are very diverse: edema, hypertension, urine changes, anemia (anemia). As the disease develops, the kidneys stop effectively cleansing the blood of toxins and accumulate in the body.
Pyelonephritis is an inflammatory and infectious disease caused by the entry of bacteria into the renal pelvis and kidney tissue. It can occur in acute form (temperature, weakness, pain in the lumbar region, burning sensation during urination) and in chronic form (periods of exacerbation of the disease process).
Chronic pyelonephritis is a chronic inflammation of the interstitial kidney tissue caused by a bacterial infection. The course of this disease is long-lasting (it lasts for years). With bilateral process, chronic renal failure develops in the final stage. In the prevention of acute and chronic pyelonephritis, the fight against infections, removal of causes that disturb the proper outflow of urine, especially careful compliance with hygiene rules are of great importance.
Cystitis is an inflammatory-bacterial disease of the bladder mucosa and urethra, very common in women (5 out of 10 women at some point in their life suffers from this disease) and rarely in men, which is why it is considered a female disease. Inflammation is usually caused by the bacterium known as E. coli, which nests in the vagina and then enters the urethra through which urine flows. Getting into the urinary tract, the pathogen causes inflammation and associated symptoms: frequent and painful urination, a feeling of heaviness or cramping pain in the lower abdomen. Chronic cystitis often accompanies chronic kidney disease.
