Is Prekese good for the kidneys and the liver? Is prekese good for the liver?
Prekese fruit is very healthy and harmless to the liver and the kidneys depending on how you prepare it to derive its health benefits. Prekese prepared with lemon, ginger and garlic before consumption is completely safe and healthy… It does not damage the kidneys and the liver. Also, persons who drink boiled prekese fruit, bark, leaf or root will rarely come down with kidney or liver failure or damage.
Consuming Prekese as a herbal remedy for diseases and well being becomes problematic if the Prekese herbal tea is prepared with alcohol especially dry gin or beer or combined with documented nephrotoxic hepatoxic herbs. The prekese will not cause the harm, it is its alcohol content that will most likely damage the liver and kidneys especially if taken in large quantities.
Herbal concoctions made with alcohol are very toxic to the liver and kidneys because these are the organs in the body that help detox and excrete toxic waste or chemicals from the body. Taking prekese soaked in alcohol can damage the liver and the kidneys… So be careful.
If you want to take prekese and you want your kidneys and liver to be unharmed, make the prekese with lime, ginger, lemon etc but never with alcohol like dry gin. Be warned.
What are the functions of the liver?
According to WebMD, “the liver is a large, meaty organ that sits on the right side of the belly. Weighing about 3 pounds, the liver is reddish-brown in color and feels rubbery to the touch. Normally you can’t feel the liver, because it’s protected by the rib cage.
The liver’s main job is to filter the blood coming from the digestive tract, before passing it to the rest of the body. The liver also detoxifies chemicals and metabolizes drugs. As it does so, the liver secretes bile that ends up back in the intestines. The liver also makes proteins important for blood clotting and other functions.”
What are the functions of the kidneys?
According to WebMD, “the kidneys are a pair of bean-shaped organs on either side of your spine, below your ribs and behind your belly. Each kidney is about 4 or 5 inches long, roughly the size of a large fist.The kidneys’ job is to filter your blood. They remove wastes, control the body’s fluid balance, and keep the right levels of electrolytes. All of the blood in your body passes through them several times a day for filtration and detoxification.
When blood comes into the kidney, waste from drugs, herbs, and foods gets removed, and salt, water, and minerals are adjusted, if needed. The filtered blood goes back into the body. Waste gets turned into urine for excretion.
You can now see the importance of the kidneys and liver. If you want to take Prekese, do so without alcohol, alcohol is toxic to the kidneys and liver.
Prekese is neither nephrotoxic nor hepatotoxic.
