Definitely, and here is the Science to prove it.
In a recent study from the Indian Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences entitled “Identification of a Proteinaceous Component in the Leaf of Moringa Oleifera with Effects on High Serum Creatinine“, they found that Moringa consumption showed a decrease of approximately 20% in the levels of serum creatinine over a period of 24 hours.
“20% Reduction of High Serum Creatinine Levels in a 24 Hour Period”
What a Second… What is Serum Creatinine? This leads us to our next question of:
Creatinine is a natural by-product of the wear and tear of your muscles in your body.
Serum creatinine is the level in your blood, as opposed to your urine.
Everybody has creatinine, but we need to know how to keep on eye on the level and know when it is dangerously high.
Typically speaking, if your creatinine level is at or above 1.2 (mg per dL) in women and 1.4 in men (with two kidneys) damage and failure could result.
There is new research regarding how lemon juice can reduce serum creatinine.
In a scientific pilot study, Each patient drank 2 freshly squeezed lemon in 2 liters of water per day.
In addition to other observations (such as symptoms of gout), A decrease in serum creatinine was observed in all groups within 6-weeks.
Also, lemon juice stimulates the formation of calcium carbonate released by the pancreas and aids in alkalization of the blood and urine, neutralizing acids such as uric acid.
1 Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN):
“BUN is a measurement of waste products in your blood. BUN tests measure the amount of nitrogen in the blood”
2. Serum Creatinine Test
“This examines whether creatinine is building up in your blood. The kidneys usually completely filter creatinine from the blood. A high level of creatinine suggests a kidney problem.”
“This test screens for the presence of protein and blood in the urine.”
4. Estimated GFR:
“This test estimates how well your kidneys are filtering waste”.

At Mother Nature Organics, our customers often ask us about wheatgrass.
Wheatgrass, although a power-packed super grass common in juicing and healthy green shots, contains very high in potassium.
Therefore it is not a suitable drink for people with kidney disease.
This is why it is a common belief as to why is wheatgrass bad for you, not to mention that it can easily be contaminated with bacteria or mold.
Pregnant and nursing women are strongly advised to avoid any form of it.
Pregnancy and breast-feeding: It’s probably unsafe to use the root, bark, or flowers of moringa if you are pregnant.
Chemicals in the root, bark, and flowers can make the uterus contract, and this might cause a miscarriage.
There is not enough information available about the safety of using other parts of the moringa during pregnancy. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
