Hydration & Your Kidneys

We all know it’s important to hydrate, but why? To answer this question, it’s helpful to understand the overall function of the kidneys—one of your body’s most essential organs.

Kidneys operate as a filter for your body. Together your kidneys clean around 135 quarts of blood per day, which is the equivalent of two full tanks of gas. Blood is filtered through your kidneys via millions of microscopic units called nephrons. The excess fluid and waste from your kidneys creates around two quarts of urine each day.

Another critical role of the kidneys is controlling your body’s pH levels, which measures the overall acidity in your body. High acidity is bad. Lower acidity (more neutral pH), or alkaline, is good. Acid tends to be more common in our bodies. Thus, people tend to have a higher acidic output into their urine, which can lead to inflammation, kidney stones, gout, and many other issues.

Your lifestyle, hydration routine, and the food you eat can increase or decrease the amount of acid in your body. Our bodies extract minerals from tissues and bones in order to balance the pH levels, which can lead to lower muscle mass and thinner bones. Adding extra electrolytes and minerals, such as those found in KSPtabs, can help restore your urine pH naturally.

Drinking large quantities of water without any flavor can be boring, monotonous and make you feel bloated. KSPtabs were developed to give your water a flavor kick while supporting and protecting your kidneys throughout the day by infusing your body with extra elements and minerals such as:

  • Potassium: Both an electrolyte and a mineral, regulates blood pressure, heart rate, and bodily fluids. It also prevents bloating.
  • Citrate: Helps support a normal urinary pH and reduce calcium crystal saturation—the basic building blocks of kidney stones.
  • Magnesium: Supports digestion and relieves cramps, aches, & spasms. Improves blood circulation, which keeps uric acid flowing until it can be expelled. It also binds to oxalates in urine, which can cause kidney stones.
  • B6: Maintains healthy urine parameters and promotes metabolism. Also supports brain function and prevents or reduces symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.

Find your current hydration level

Humans can survive weeks without food, but only a few days without water. By simply looking at the color of your urine you can travel back in time to see your hydration status.

Notice the color of your urine right after you wake up compared to the middle of the day. This rapid change in color is why it is so important to replenish your kidneys first thing in the morning with water and keep it going throughout the day. The more water your drink, the lighter your urine and the more hydrated you are.

Drinking water not only helps to remove toxins from your body, but it has added the benefit of improving your skin and energizing muscles. Adding KSPtabs to your daily regimen also gives your body that extra hydration lift to keep it performing at an optimum level all day.
