Chinese herbs for kidneys & urinary tract disorders.
The kidneys are a pair of organs on the left and right sides of the abdomen (tummy). The kidneys have a number of important functions which include:
- Maintaining the body's fluid balance.
- Clearing waste substances from the blood.
- Regulating blood pressure.
- Making certain hormones.
- Balancing the levels of certain chemicals in the blood.
The urinary tract is a series of tubes and storage vessels that take the urine produced by the kidneys from inside the body to the outside. This includes the ureters, bladder and urethra. The ureters take urine produced by the kidneys to the bladder. The bladder stores urine until it is ready to be passed out. The urethra forms the passage between the bladder and the outside world. In men, the urethra also carries sperm.
