Herbs to healthy, happy kidneys and bladder… Cheers!

Our kidneys and bladder are part of our body which are easy to neglect-drinking too little clean clear water passing them, and eating too much salty, refined foods.

The following herbs, which are found in our kidney and bladder herbal tea, are known to have a positive, cleansing effect on these organs:-
