It’s a start. Start to a new and fresh decade, start to a new and fresh year, start to new and fresh work, start to a new and fresh lifestyle and start to know yourself and our bodies better. So, we thought that this year lets us burst out some of the myths that have covered the fitness industry with its dark clouds.
The kidneys are amazing organs that create urine and flush waste, surplus nutrients, and liquids out of the bloodstream. There is recent evidence that protein-high diets do not affect the function of the kidneys. Scientists have debunked a widely held and diverse theory that diets of high protein will affect the kidney of healthy adults.
Some say that your kidneys need to work very hard to clear the protein metabolites out of your body and that makes your kidneys more stressful. Adding more protein to your diet may slightly raise your workload, but it is a very small increase compared with the tremendous amount of work done by your kidneys.
Protein hardly has an influence on kidney function, however, it is much more controversial. Particularly its effect on glomerular fill traction rate (GFR), which is a test yet to measure how well the kidneys filter blood and remove waste. About 20% of your heart’s blood flows into the kidneys through your body. In a person, approximately 180 liters of blood are filtered out by the kidney each day.
For people with chronic kidney disease, a high protein diet can hurt, but it is not true for people with healthy kidneys. High blood pressure and diabetes are the two main risk factors for kidney failure. A higher protein intake benefits both the cases. In conclusion, there is no evidence that a high intake of protein harms the kidney of a normal person. Although people with kidney disease should take extra care. A high protein diet does, though, offer lots of health advantages and can even help you keep fit.
