OUCH! Don’t get a kidney stone.
Either you have had a kidney stone or you know someone who has and there is very little debate, THEY HURT!
According to the National Kidney Foundation, one in ten people will have kidney stones at some point in their life and they can be extremely painful depending on the size.
Now, according to Eat This, Not That!, researchers have found a way to help fight the chances of getting a kidney stone and you can start doing it immediately.
In a review by World Journal of Urology, researchers reviewed 13 past studies and found that drinking green tea can help prevent future kidney stones. “The current available literature supports in general, a potentially protective role for tea against stone formation, mainly for green tea,” the study authors said.
Researchers claim that the water used in green tea along with the teas antioxidants prevent the formation of kidney stones while also flushing excess minerals from the kidneys.
They noted that further research was needed but green tea had the best overall results.
