This is a tried and true formula to strengthen the kidneys. I have inherently weak kidneys, as I learned when I was a teenager through an Iridology analysis. In 2015, my tests showed there were two signs that were telling me that my kidneys were not functioning to their optimal level. 1st-by blood tests: the Glom filt level was at 54 then 62 (it should be in the 80s or 90s, but my Dr was telling me that it was normal). 2nd-my back was hurting. When I started on this formula, my back pain improved by 85% within the first week. I haven't had a problem since.
