Do you know...? What your Kidneys do?

Your kidneys have four incredible powers:

1) Clean your blood and circulate a fresh supply around your body 12 times every hour. This works out to a total of around 200 liters of blood per day.

2)Process excess fluid and unwanted chemicals and waste in your blood. The result is about one to two liters of urine that you pass each day, detoxifying your body.

3) Keep your blood pressure regular by telling the blood vessels in your body when to expand and contract. 

4) Manage your body’s Vitamin D production, which is crucial for maintaining strong bones and producing red blood cells that carry oxygen around your body.
