If you need more reason to add fruit and vegetables to your diet, here you go: Grape seed and skin has just been found to help fight kidney disease!
 
Nutrition experts recommend eating at least five servings of fruit and vegetables per day for optimal health, says FSP Health.
 
And grape seed and skin extract is already known to contain powerful antioxidants, says ScienceDaily
 
Now, there’s reason to include grape seed in your diet.
 
Fight kidney disease with grape seed!
 
One cup of grapes, with about 100 calories, provides more than a quarter of the daily recommended values of vitamins K and C, says WebMD
 
Now, research has found that grape seed and skin are key aspects in the fight against kidney disease caused by high-fat diets, reports the NRC Research Press.
 
That’s because most kidney disease changes your blood PH as it goes into a state of metabolic acidosis
 
So while doctors usually prescribe medications such as sodium bicarbonate to balance this out and preserve kidney function, you can also neutralise the acidity with grape seed and skin, as they’re alkaline.
 
Even if you haven’t been diagnosed with kidney disease, you’re at risk of metabolic acidosis if you eat lots of fatty foods as they’re highly acidic, says the Newswise website.
 
You don’t have to eat a bowl of grape seeds for your kidneys to benefit…
 
If you don’t relish the thought of munching a bowl of grape seeds, remember that grape seed is also available as a dietary supplement in capsules, tablets, and liquid extracts.
 
So add more grapes, grape seed extract or even raisins to your diet and you’ll improve your kidney function in the long run!
