Kidneys perform several vital functions of our body like filter waste products, excess water, and other impurities from your blood. These waste products are stored in your bladder and later expelled through urine.
In addition to this, kidneys also regulate pH, salt, and potassium levels in the body. They also produce hormones that regulate blood pressure and control the production of red blood cells.
Kidneys also help to activate vitamin D that helps your body to absorb calcium for building bones and regulating muscle function.
