Our kidneys are powerful cleaning systems. They work daily without break to filter more than 200 liters of blood. When a person is dehydrated, this puts a great pressure and strain on the kidneys. This is the main cause for the many people suffering from kidney and bladder issues. It is recommended to drink about 2 liters of water on daily basis so that your kidneys function properly. Apart from plain water, you can consume certain drinks and smoothies, such as the healthy delicious smoothie explained below. Smoothie for the Kidney

- ½ cup almonds
- 1 peeled kiwi
