If you love curry, you are already familiar with turmeric. It’s the distinctive herb that gives curry its color and flavor. Turmeric contains a compound called curcumin, which is stellar at reducing the effects of inflammatory enzymes that can cause chronic kidney disease. More than that, curcumin can prevent the growth of many types of harmful microbe, which relieves strain on the kidneys.
However, if you already have kidney disease, you will likely be advised to limit your intake of turmeric. It also contains a good amount of potassium, which diseased kidneys struggle to keep in balance.
