Can Cabbage Reduce High BUN LevelCabbage is one vegetable that appears commonly in our dish or salad. BUN refers to blood urea nitrogen. As one blood test item, it can reflect how well kidneys are functioning. As introduced by dietitians, some vegetables indeed can help lower high BUN level. Does cabbage have this effect?

Fortunately, the answer is yes. The reason why cabbage can reduce high BUN level is the following aspects.

The first one is the abundant content of vitamin C and folic acid. Vitamin C and folic acid can protect kidneys from experiencing further damage. Urea is one terminal product of protein breakdown, while BUN can help estimate the urea level in the blood which is discharged out of the body via kidneys. Therefore, if kidney excretion amount increases, more urea can be eliminated out of the body. Finally, BUN level can reduce naturally.

The second one is the rich content of dietary fiber. This can help make more waste products and toxins excreted out via bowel. Blood urea nitrogen is involved in these waste products and toxins. Here, we can know cabbage indeed can help reduce BUN level more or less. Therefore, in most cases, people with high BUN level can eat cabbage safely. (However, to be responsible for your health, you had better tell the doctor online your illness condition in detail, in order to get an accurate answer.)

In addition to cabbage, many other fruits and vegetables can also help reduce high BUN levels. For example, cranberry and blueberry also contain rich antioxidants, so they can help improve kidney function level, while some other foods such as bitter gourd and red bell pepper can help increase kidney output so as to eliminate more urea.
