Love Your Kidneys (and urinary tract!) Elixir Recipe + Chia Seeds + Detox

Here’s a wonderful beverage to help keep your kidneys healthy and happy so you can detox naturally. You want those kidneys to be in good shape to filter the gunk out of your system, right? Of course you do!

After nimbly avoiding it for over a while week taking care of sick family members, I finally succumbed to a nasty summer flu. I tried my best to prevent it, but lack of sleep is the enemy of a strong immune system!  It only lasted a day, but it was icky, and I lost a lot of fluids (I’ll spare you the details – you’re welcome.). As soon as I could stomach anything more than a sip or two of tea or broth I used this recipe for a healthy elixir for some serious rehydrating.

Unsweetened cranberry juice is one of the stars in this drink. Cranberries are well known for their antiviral and antibacterial properties. They also help to stabilize free radicals. All of this means fewer toxins in your blood that your kidneys have to filter as well as healthier kidneys!

Your body needs to be well-hydrated for your kidneys to be at peak performance and perform their detox functions. If you are dehydrated the kidneys are not able to do their job properly, and toxins end up being recirculated in your system. This is NOT what you want for healthy blood and a healthy body!

Chia seeds are the co-stars in this drink. These ancient little seeds can absorb up to 30 times their weight in water and help to balance electrolytes and hydration levels. In addition to their super-hydrating properties, they are packed with minerals, fiber, and protein and were revered for their numerous health-benefits by indigenous tribes of Mexico.

Here’s how you can make your own magical elixir for hydrating your body, keeping your kidneys healthy, and giving you more energy!
