Our kidneys have a vitally important function in that they detoxify the body.

Axar.az reports citing the National Institutes of Health, the average set of kidneys filters an astonishing 200 quarts of blood per day and produces about 2 quarts of waste. In the process, the important nutrients that we need to maintain the function of all bodily processes are sent back into the bloodstream. Kidneys work around the clock to keep us healthy, and even play a role in blood pressure.

The quality of our diets very much affects how hard the kidneys need to work to accomplish this goal. Certain foods put a lot more pressure on these bean-shaped organs, and should be eaten in moderation to avoid developing kidney disease. Luckily, it’s never too late to improve the health of your kidneys, even if you already have a kidney disorder. (Of course, at that point, your doctor will need to be involved.)

Here are 8 foods that put enormous strain on your kidneys. Some of them do have redeeming health value and should simply be eaten in moderation, while others should be avoided completely. Stick with us to find out exactly how to balance a kidney-friendly diet.

1. Red meat

2. Alcohol

3. Table Salt

4. Caffeine

5. Sodas and Energy Drinks
