    Are Brazilian Nuts Unhealthy For Dialysis Patients

    2017-01-22 03:32| Font Size A A A

    Are Brazilian Nuts Unhealthy For Dialysis PatientsThe greatest health benefit of Brazil nuts lies in their high selenium content, and this is what makes them so special. Brazilian nuts have many health benefits. Well then, are they good for dialysis patients?

    Brazilian nuts are healthy for dialysis patients due to its high selenium content.

    Patients on dialysis are more likely to experience a deficiency of vitamins and minerals. During dialysis, the function of kidneys, the elimination of toxins from the blood, is supplanted. The disadvantage is that it is not just toxins that are filtered out of the blood but also vital substances like vitamins and minerals. As is the trace element selenium. Dialysis patients with selenium deficiency can suffer from hypothyroidism, muscular disease, skin disorders, myocardial weakness and the loss of red blood corpuscles. Selenium is a free radical scavenger and it plays an important role in protecting cell membranes against oxidation. Brazilian nuts contain the best known sources of selenium. In addition to selenium levels, the activity of the enzyme glutathione perosidase was also studied. The enzyme occurs in red blood corpuscles and is an important, protective function specific to the cells.

    Generally speaking, it can be concluded that dialysis patients can counteract a possible selenium deficiency by consuming just one Brazil nut every day and can improve their antioxidative status.

    Aside from proper diet, the most effective treatment for dialysis patients is Toxin-Removing Treatment which rid the blood of toxins and then repair injured kidney tissues and improve renal function. Only in this way can patients live a high quality life. Toxin-Removing Treatment includes many Chinese medicine treatments like Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Moxibustion Therapy and Medicinal Soup, etc. According to your specific illness condition, proper treatment will be chosen. Although dialysis can replace injured kidneys to eliminate toxins from the blood, it is just a temporary solution. Dialysis can cause many side effects like low blood pressure, infection, nausea, vomiting and itchy skin. What’s worse, your residual healthy kidney function will be damaged by long time of dialysis. Compared with dialysis, Toxin-Removing Treatment is welcomed by most patients. This therapy is not only natural but also effective in improving renal function.

    Brazilian nuts are good for dialysis patients. Besides, if you want to rid of dialysis, you can try Toxin-Removing Treatment. Our contact information is and whatsapp 008613463017175.
