Tasty and Kidney-friendly: The Perfect Apples Recipe
People with weaker kidney health should choose low potassium fruits, and apple is one of the best choices. Apple is easy to buy and incredibly nutritious. Apple is undoubtedly a delicious fruit whether eaten alone or baked.
Apple is often seen as kidney-friendly food as it is low in potassium, phosphorous, and sodium. Even people with chronic kidney problems or who need dialysis can consume apples safely. The pectin found in apples helps with blood sugar and cholesterol level control, thus lowering the risks of kidney damage. Apple is also rich in antioxidants, dietary fiber, and vitamin C.
If just eating apples seems dull, try to spice it up with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Cinnamon is thought to benefit kidney health by regulating blood sugar levels.
Here’s a recipe for Cinnamon Stewed Apples (4 Servings)
1 tablespoon butter / vegan butter
4 medium apples (peeled, cubed/sliced)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Although apples and cinnamon are good for kidney health, don’t binge on them. Over consumption can cause adverse effects on the body.
