    What Seeds Are Good for Kidney Disease PatientsKidney disease patients should have a strict dietary plan to protect their kidney from the further damage. Seeds like sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, Chia seeds, etc are the popular leisure food in our daily life. There is a question: when as diagnosed with kidney disease, can patients eat seeds?

    As we all know, kidney is an important organ which is packed with numerous functions. Its mainly job is to filter the bloodstream. There is no certain answer for what seeds are good for kidney disease patients. Because diet is just like double-edged sword, eating rightly can be good for you, otherwise, it is harmful for your health. There is no exception with seeds.

    Certain seeds are good for kidney disease patients.

    Grape seeds

    Researchers have found that taking dietary supplement like grape seed extract can restore the health of your kidneys and improve kidney function. Grape seed extract is rich in antioxidants which can fight against the free radicals. Taking grape seeds extract can help support filtration function of your kidneys, reducing the strain that can lead to impaired function.

    Sunflower seeds

    Sunflower seeds contain rich unsaturated fatty acid which cab lower serum cholesterol level and prevent occurrence of cardiovascular diseases.

    However, not all seeds are good for kidney health, for example:

    Chia seeds
