Old Orchard Cranberry’s Tips on How to Take Care of your Kidneys

logo

Old Orchard Cranberry Healthy Balance

Kidneys are two bean-shaped multi-functional powerhouse organs of the urinary system. They expel waste from the body, balance body fluids, release hormones that regulate blood pressure, and control the production of red blood cells.

With all those jobs to be done, our kidneys deserve attention and care. The National Kidney and Transplant Institute has reported that Kidney Failure is the 7th leading cause of death among Filipinos and close to an estimate of 30,000-40,000 patients yearly undergo dialysis. Kidney disease often cannot be cured, but fortunately, it can be prevented early by taking care of our urinary tract. With the aid of Old Orchard’s resident US nutritionist, Amy Bragagnini, MS, RD, CSO, here are some tips that can help you prevent urinary tract and kidney infections.

  1. Eating Healthy and Exercising Regularly.

                Diabetes and high blood pressure cause most of the kidney problems. When blood pressure is high, blood vessels stretch to allow blood to flow more easily. The stretching eventually injures and weakens the blood vessels, impairing their ability to clean blood properly, including those in the kidneys. That’s why it is always best to follow healthy eating habits such as limiting intake of sodium (2,500 mg) and sugar, and controlling weight and blood pressure through exercise. Watchful eaters should also consider the addition of calcium-filled food (milk, yogurt, calcium fortified cereals, etc.) to their diet. However, Bragagnini notes that one must not mistake calcium supplements as an alternative to the natural food sources, as it could result to kidney stone formation when taken in excess.

  1. Giving up on Smoking.

If you’re smoking, you should quit now as smoking slows the flow of blood to the kidneys. This results to an impairment to function properly which increases risks of kidney cancer by 50%.

  1. Following Directions for Over-the-Counter Medications.

                Your kidneys can only take so much. Overdoing your medications create high toxins level in the body, posing great burden on the kidneys. So as much as possible, limit yourself from too much chemical exposure. If you really need medications, consult with your physician and follow the instructions well.

  1. Having them Screened Regularly.

                If diabetes or high blood pressure is in the genes, it is always ideal for you to have your kidneys tested regularly as part of your routine check-up. A creatinine level higher than 1.2 for women and 1.4 for men is a sure sign of a kidney problem.

  1. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!

“Fluid intake is another important step to help lower risk of kidney stone formation and urinary tract infection”, stresses Bragagini. Healthy individuals who aren’t suffering present kidney diseases should consume enough water and other fluids of at least 2 liters of fluid per day. Consuming enough fluid helps dilute the urine and helps flush toxins. Bragagini prescribes that pairing a meal with Cranberry juice in moderation is a great way to reduce instances  of irritation in the urinary tract. In fact, Cranberries are power packed fruits that are rich in Vitamin C and a source of Flavonoid and Phytonutrient contents called Hippuric Acid and Proanthocyanidin. These power duo components prevent UTI-causing bacteria from sticking into the wall of the bladder and urinary tract preventing further damage to the kidneys.

Bragagini closes by saying that the most important thing you can do to keep your kidneys safe is to take care of your overall body to reduce your chances of developing diseases that put a strain on your kidneys. Coupled by prevention, it is also aided by continuously doing consultation with your physician or dietitian.

Old Orchard can be enjoyed in three flavors: Cranberry, Apple Cranberry, and Cranberry Raspberry. There are also diabetic-friendly variants that contain 75 percent less sugar and only has 20 calories: Healthy Balance Cranberry and Healthy Balance Apple Cranberry.

Quench the 5 Most Common Signs of Dehydration with Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water

Summer season is upon us! This is the time to bask under the glorious rays of the sun and have fun- sunbathe at the beach, engage in outdoor sports, or just simply enjoy the balmy weather without the fear of rain disrupting our activities. 
However, with temperatures soaring during these sweltering summer months, we all need to be aware when our bodies are trying to tell us we need a good dose of rehydration. Water comprises 70% of our bodies, and once this level decreases by even a small percentage, we become dehydrated. Here are some of the most common symptoms of dehydration to watch out for: 

1. Increased thirst 

Thirst is the body’s most automatic indicator of dehydration.  It is the first reminder that we need to restore fluid balance for our bodies to function properly 

2. Headaches and dizziness 

When we are dehydrated, the water content in our body drops and results in a decreased flow of oxygen to the brain. This triggers the pain receptors surrounding our brains, inducing nagging migraines and feelings of dizziness. 

3. Decreased urination

Maintaining a healthy fluid balance is imperative in keeping our biological functions running smoothly. When we are dehydrated, the kidneys try to conserve water by concentrating urine, so when urine is appears in a darker yellow shade, it means that the body’s fluid balance has been compromised. 
4. Dry skin

Our skin’s appearance and elasticity is very much affected by our fluid balance. When we are dehydrated, fluids pull away from our skin and redirect to other major organs in the body to preserve proper biological functions.
5. Sluggishness and fatigue

Dehydration can definitely affect your body’s endurance levels throughout the day, causing feelings of tiredness and decreased alertness. This can impair concentration and cause a disruption with daily and work activities.

The most effective way to revert the effects of dehydration and heat exhaustion is by increasing fluid intake, and water is definitely the most effective key to restoring our body’s all-important fluid balance. Our bodies also lose important nutrients when we are dehydrated, so drinking water high in natural minerals and nutrients is also important in keeping our biological functions running in tiptop condition.

 Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water is complete with a high mineral profile to slake your thirst and provide your body with the nutrients it needs while giving you a deep sense of well-being apparent from your first sip. Whether at work, after sport or simply in between – Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water is the perfect companion to survive the scorching heat. 

                    

Drinking this when I want to perk up my taste buds without eliminating minerals that are essential for my body.

Originating from the depths of Germany’s Volcanic Eifel region, Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water has a unique nutritional balance of calcium, magnesium and bicarbonate, which cannot be found in regular drinking water. It provides the body with valuable minerals and trace elements that the body cannot generate on its own.  One liter of Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water satisfies 1/3 of the daily calcium requirement and more than a quarter of the magnesium requirement that supports your energy metabolism and can help to reduce tiredness and fatigue.
Its refreshing taste profile is amped up by its delightful fizzy mouthfeel, quenching your thirst deeply from the first sip to the last. Gerolsteiner’s natural sparkling fizz comes from its concentration of bicarbonates and is not artificially carbonated like soda. This aids the body’s digestive functions without the added calories, sugar and chemicals. 

This summer, have a fizzy pick-me-up thirst quencher. Keep yourself safe from dehydration and maintain your body’s vitality—refresh and rejuvenate with Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water!
