Cordyceps and Kidney Disease: Herbal Remedies For Kidney Disease, Cordyceps Mushroom, Herbs, and CKD
Cordyceps is a type of mushroom that has shown to be very beneficial with kidney disease. Whether it’s in a pill or powder form, cordyceps supplements have shown to be extremely therapeutic for people with kidney disease. If you’ve just found out that your kidneys are damaged, there are many things you need to get right. Following a renal diet (often low in protein), exercising regularly, limiting alcohol, avoiding high-sodium foods and processed meats, quitting smoking, and taking effective supplements are among some of the basic measures that you need to take with kidney disease. Along with everything you do to achieve normal kidney function, cordyceps mushroom supplements can be an effective herbal remedy for kidney disease. Cordyceps Sinensis, the type of mushroom used for cordyceps supplements has been around for around 300 years and its therapeutic benefits are valid to this day. Taking cordyceps supplements with kidney disease can support good kidney health as cordyceps have been shown to reduce inflammation, lower creatinine levels, manage blood sugar levels, all of which come together to help delay the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Always be mindful to check with your nephrologist or dietitian before taking any supplements. Cordyceps also has a variety of other benefits for your overall health like improving bone health, boosting immune function, cardiovascular benefits, and protecting from some cancers. Cordyceps has also been shown to reduce the protein in urine with kidney disease. If you detect high amounts of protein in your urine, you may need to see your kidney doctor manage that issue.
