Whole Nutraceuticals began with the creation of Whole Kidney, a patent-pending dietary strategy for kidney stone patients - and there is a great need for it. Almost 20 percent of men and almost 10 percent of women in the U.S. have had a kidney stone, according to the American Urology Association. Half of people who get a kidney stone will unfortunately develop another.
In the U.S. alone, $2 billion per year is currently being spent on the treatment of kidney stones - a result of more than 2 million outpatient visits per year because of them.
To combat kidney stones, the AUA recommends avoiding some foods and adding others.
- Avoid salt (make sure you read labels), sugar, and foods high in oxalate such as spinach, beets, chocolate, tea and nuts. Caffeinated drinks that dehydrate, like coffee and soft drinks, should also be avoided, as well as more than two servings per day of animal protein.
- Patients should make sure their diet includes citrate, potassium, magnesium, phytate, Vitamin D, and a normal allowance of calcium.
That's why Whole Kidney is made up of organic, non-GMO dried lemon, banana, kale, flaxseed and mushroom - whole foods rich in the the AUA’s recommended nutrients - plus all of the beneficial food components nature intended. Simple and powerful, easy for the body to absorb.
And don't forget - the AUA also recommends drinking at least 2.5 liters of water per day. So each time you take Whole Kidney, drink at least 20 ounces of water.
