The kidneys are a critical detoxification organ inside your body. The kidneys are responsible for not only processing all liquids that enter the body but also for filtering and eliminating lymph fluid. Their #1 job is to keep your blood clean and healthy, which it does by the removal of waste out of your lymphatic system. They also maintain a proper fluid balance within the body, balancing salt, potassium, and acids. Acids are the waste product of basic metabolism that must be eliminated by the body. If they build up, it can cause damage in the body. The ability of the kidneys to remove this acid waste is vital to your health!
