It’s a wellness world and we’re all just living in it. From the litany of health experts to the growing tide of wellness-focused products on offer, it’s hard not to focus on the well-being of our bodies, minds, and souls. Inspired by this cultural zeitgeist, we thought we’d throw our proverbial hats into the ring with a special collaboration that we’re all incredibly excited about. To shine a light on the importance of our kidneys and how much they impact our overall health, we partnered with The National Kidney Foundation on an exclusive Embellished Rhinestone Ring. To get you more acquainted with the function of these all-important organs, we wanted to share a few facts below, courtesy of The National Kidney Foundation.
Here's 5 things you probably didn't know about your kidneys
Kidneys work as a filtration system for your body - they remove waste and toxins, make red blood cells, and keep your bones healthy.
37 million people are affected by kidney disease and millions don’t know they are affected.
Kidney disease can affect everyone, including both the elderly and the younger demographic.
Exercise and a healthy diet can help improve kidney function.
Staying hydrated and drinking water and decreasing salt intake also helps improve kidney function. Remember your kidneys filter everything you eat and drink. Don’t believe us? Drink water and monitor your urine for 3 days straight and watch it become clear!
We’re giving 20% of the proceeds from our #SonixXNKF Rhinestone Ring to The National Kidney Foundation. So shop away and remember to #heartyourkidneys!
