Kidney Health

Renal health is integral to overall bodily functions, and the escalating prevalence of renal diseases poses significant challenges to public health. Hi-Q’s research delves into the comprehensive investigation of Oligo Fucoidan and Fucoxanthin in promoting renal health. These components hold promise in positively impacting renal health by alleviating renal inflammation and damage, potentially slowing the progression of chronic kidney diseases. Moreover, the antifibrotic attributes of Oligo Fucoidan and Fucoxanthin might provide supportive measures against renal fibrosis.

Potential Benefits of Oligo Fucoidan and Fucoxanthin in Kidney Health:

  • Inhibit renal tubule interstitial fibrosis in chronic kidney disease (CKD)
  • Exert protective effects on the kidneys of chronic kidney disease
  • Ameliorate Acute Kidney Injury (AKI)
  • Reduce AKI severity and promote kidney recovery of AKI (inhibiting kidney inflammation)
  • Improves diabetes-induced renal fibrosis
