To clean toxins out of your blood, the Kidneys have millions of tiny sensors with filters.

  • High blood pressure makes the kidney arteries narrow, kidneys can’t get enough blood, they starve and filtering stops.

    Cascade effect: Kidney tries to get more blood by sending signals that tell your body to raise your blood pressure.

     
  • High blood pressure breaks filter parts.

When  kidneys can’t filter well , toxins build up in your blood.
