The kidneys are best known for creating and clearing urine from our bodies. But did you know that they are also largely responsible for clearing the toxins in your body that the liver cannot, and serve an important role in maintaining your blood pressure. So remember to also thank your kidneys after next weekend’s outings.
Be FIT. Be Productive. Be Jōbu.
