Improvement on Kidney Health
Beneficial effect of Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) Fermented Extract on the progress of renal failure by Dr. Akira Kawashima – Associate Professor, Kidney Center, Tokyo Women’s Medical College and The Tokyo Women’s Medical College – Aoyama woman natural medical laboratory
Based on a case study, 4 patients who were on maintenance dialysis were given LAB Fermented Extract for a year. During this period, the production of uremic toxins (serum indoxyl sulfate, BUN and P) in the intestinal tract was observed to have decreased. This suggests that LAB Fermented Extract is potentially useful for improving protein metabolism and controlling the maintenance-phase of renal failure.
*Indoxyl Sulfate: An uremic toxin, is accumulated in the serum of patients with kidney failure. Normal range: ≤1.87 µg/mL
*BUN (Blood Urea Nitrogen): The level of BUN reveals how well the kidneys and liver are working. Normal range: 8 – 20mg/dL
*P (Inorganic phosphorus): The inorganic phosphorus level is measured to monitor its elimination by the kidneys. Normal range: 2.5 – 4.5mg/dL
