Kibow’s education guide Probiotics and Kidney Health offers clear information on kidney issues and how probiotics can slow or even stop its progression.
In the U.S., there is a growing public awareness of two trends in medicine: first, there is a better understanding of the beneficial effects of probiotics and second there is widespread alarm at the prevalence of kidney disease.
In fact, few people know that kidney disease is the ninth leading cause of death in the U.S. The population continues to age and as contributing factors to kidney disease, such as obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure, spiral out of control. Americans and people globally may soon be facing a real health crisis.
In this booklet, we will discuss probiotics and the unique ability of certain probiotic strains to help remove uremic toxins from the digestive system. We will also examine the various types and stages of chronic kidney disease, commonly known as CKD. Finally, we will take a closer look at the cutting edge probiotic approach and the science behind it that shows it can help slow the progression of CKD and may provide some hope for sufferers of the disease.
