Your kidney health
Your kidneys are each about the size of a fist and sit near your spine below your ribcage. The insides of your kidneys are filled with hundreds of thousands of tiny filters called nephrons. As your blood moves through these nephrons, it is filtered to create waste. Nephrons combine this waste with water and other chemicals to create urine, which carries toxins out of your body. If your kidneys are damaged or sick, it may impact their ability to function properly, which can cause toxins to build up in your body.
