#KidneyCleansingWednesday: CABBAGE

It is that time of the week again when we give all our attention to the Kidney. Kidney cleansing Wednesday is about pampering the Kidneys, making them green and full of strength.

The Kidney magician for the day is CABBAGE.

Cabbages are cruciferous vegetables filled with phytochemicals. Phytochemicals work to break apart free radicals from the body. Many phytochemicals are believed to combat cancer and support cardiovascular health.

Cabbages are high in Vitamin K nd C; they are equally high in fibre and a good source of Vitamin B6.

The property of cabbages that makes them Kidney friendly is that they are low in potassium.

Cabbages can be consumed as a vegetable with rice and pasta dishes or raw in salads and coleslaw. It is the green Kidney day, do some honour.

Give your body a green treat today.
