Many people treat their kidneys like a bit of an afterthought. They don’t really think about them unless it’s already too late and something is wrong with them. But the kidneys are actually very important organs. They clean about 200 quarts a day and remove about 2 quarts that you then pee out. Kidney also help to regulate blood pressure, increase red blood cell productions, and synthesize vitamin D. As such, it’s very important to take good care of them. And you can easily do that from home with some herbs. On the next pages, we will list 9 herbs that are great for cleansing your kidneys. Read on quickly!
1. Chanca Piedra
Chanca Piedra, which literally means ‘stone breaker’ in Spanish, is a herb that is found in the rainforests of the Amazon, among other places. It’s known to improve the kidney and liver function that has also been shown to help against kidney stones, which is how it got its name. It’s not known how it works: it could be that the herb relaxes the urethra, washes out stone fragments, or increases passing of calcium. Whatever the reason, however, it does appear to work. The herb is most commonly consumed as a tea.
2. Hydrangea Root
Hydrangea root is a solvent that may smooth the ragged edges of kidney stones, which will make it easier for your body to excrete them. It also helps the body use calcium properly. Researchers are currently looking into the efficacy of hydrangea root with patients fighting autoimmune diseases, arthritis and diabetes. The herb is commonly available as tinctures or dried roots in capsules. However, do note that it’s thought to be safe only for a few days, and the dose should be under 2 grams at a time.
This plant seems to have some great health benefits for the kidneys. For starters, it’s used to detoxify the kidneys and tone the urinary extract. Secondly, clinical trials in animals also suggest that goldenrod might reduce inflammation, fight infections and work as a diuretic, which increase the passing of urine. It’s often taken as a tea or tincture. However, do be careful: allergies to these plants exist and are even quite common. If you’re allergic to ragweed, marigolds or chrysanthemums, it’s better to pass on goldenrod, too.
Horsetail, which is usually taken as either a capsule or a tea, has many benefits to the kidneys. It’s known to reduce edema and bladder and kidney stones, prevent UTI’s and help with incontinence. It’s also a known diuretic and antioxidant. However, it’s not all rosy with this herb. Horsetail contains something called thiaminase, which breaks down the vitamin thiamine. Therefore, extended use of horsetail may lead to a thiamine deficiency. Also, make sure the horsetail comes from Equisetum arvense, Equisetum hyemale, or Equisetum telmateia. Equisetum palustre is known to be toxic to cattle.
5. Gravel Root
Gravel root or Joe Pye weed has been associated with kidney health for a very long time already. It contains a substance called euparin, which is a solvent that has potent activity against harmful organisms and may protect against kidney infections. It is also used for UTIs, gout and kidney stones. It can, however, be unsafe to consume if you’re not careful. If you want to try this herb, look for ‘hepatotoxic PA-free’ on the label. Otherwise, it might contain hepatotoxic pyrrolizidine alkaloids which may cause liver damage.

6. Celery Root
Both celery seeds and celery root (also known as celeriac) are diuretics. These may help flush out kidney stones and at the very least, they increase the passing of urine. Celery root also contains potassium and sodium, which are considered stimulating for the kidneys. Celery root is extremely nutritious and can be either eaten or taken as a capsule. It’s said to loosen up stiff joints and fight colon cancer, too.
7. Dandelion Root
Dandelions are quite popular as decorative flowers, but did you know they have some great health benefits too? Dandelion root is a diuretic and the entire plant is filled with antioxidants, which are known to prevent cell damage. Moreover, dandelions are said to fight inflammation, reduce cholesterol and help keep your blood sugar and blood pressure at health levels. It’s usually taken as a tea, a capsule or a tincture. Dandelion root is considered likely safe as a food and possibly safe in medicinal amounts, which are larger than the portions found in food.
8. Marshmallow Root
Marshmallow root is used as a flavoring, but it can also calm urinary tract tissues. It is a gentle diuretic and known to soothe mucous membranes, which protect your body against viruses. Marshmallow root seems to have many health benefits and is common in herbal remedies. It also has antibacterial properties and fights inflammation. If you want to use this product as a kidney cleanser, tea is probably the way to go. Marshmallow root is considered to be likely safe.
Parsley is usually used as garnish for dishes, but it’s also very healthy for your kidneys. It works as a diuretic, is incredibly high in vitamin K and, as little bonus, it also helps freshen your breath. Just don’t eat parsley too much when you’re taking blood thinners: the high dose of vitamin K can actually decrease the effectiveness of the medicine.
