Vitamins That Can Shrink Kidney CystWhen people are diagnosed with kidney cysts, they begin to seek different ways to shrink the kidney cysts in order to prevent the progression of kidney disease. Dietary therapy, herbs, surgery, drugs and supplements are all taken consideration by them. Are vitamins beneficial for shrinking renal cysts? If so, what kind of vitamins have such function?

In fact, apart from herbs and dietary changes, some vitamins can also help to balance the hormones that may be causing ovarian cysts. These include:

1. Vitamin E

It is known as the most popular antioxidant, which can defeat free radical and inhibit the gathering blood platelets, so as to keep blood circulation flow fluently. If so, enough oxygen and nutrition can be supplied to kidneys and improve the self-repairing ability of kidneys.

2. Flaxseed oil

Put flaxseed oil into the patient’s daily diets because it can help dilate blood vessels and increase the vascular elasticity so as to lower high blood pressure naturally. Hypertension is also one f complications of enlarged kidney cysts. Flaxseed is a natural remedy for lowering high blood pressure.

3. B Vitamins

B vitamins, especially vitamin B3 is known as a very effective treatment to shrink kidney cyst. First of all, vitamin B3, also called nicotinamide, is proven to be safe and effective for treating PKD, through inhibiting the activity of SIRT 1, because the decline of this protein can slow down the formation and growth of kidney cysts.

Those vitamins indeed have some benefits to shrink kidney cysts to some extent. Nevertheless, the benefits are limited and if patients take vitamins with large dosage for a long time, they may experience some side effects such as nausea, vomiting, mild fever, itch skin, and high blood pressure, and so on.

Vitamins contain chemical components, so they are not so good as herbs which are natural. Traditional Chinese herbs are good for inhibiting the secretion of cystic fluids and improve kidney function as well. So, you may as well try some Chinese herbs.
