It’s just a part of everyday life at this point. Today’s chat is filtered around the functions of the spigot of the cardiovascular system – the Kidneys. Their main job?

Kidneys also perform many other essential functions including helping regulate blood pressure, maintaining proper pH levels of the blood, all of which require a lot of energy and are necessary for life.
