March 14, 2024: World Kidney Day

On the second Thursday in March, the world comes together for World Kidney Day: an opportunity to raise public awareness of the importance of these vital organs and the diseases that affect them. This year’s theme is “Kidney health for everyone, everywhere: from prevention to healthcare and treatment”.


The kidneys perform essential functions for our health:

– Filter blood and eliminate waste and excess water.

– Regulate blood pressure and electrolyte balance.

– Produce hormones that help regulate red blood cell production and bone health.


How many people are affected by kidney disease?

Kidney disease is a major public health problem. It is estimated that 10% of the world’s population is affected by chronic kidney disease.


What ingredients are beneficial for kidney health?

On this World Kidney Day, it’s important to point out that dietary supplements can play a role in protecting and supporting kidney function.

Certain food supplements can :

– Help protect kidney cells

– Reduce inflammation

– Improve renal function

– Prevent complications of kidney disease

The role of dietary supplements for kidney health :
