In each healthy kidney, there are about a million tiny units, called kidney unit, which can remove excess or unwanted internal impurities. Each kidney unit consists of two parts-glomerulus and kidney tubules. There is a large amount of liquid and soluble substances (such as minerals and wastes) being filtered from the blood to form liquid in the glomerulus, and this process is called "filtration". These filtered liquid then out of the glomerulus and into the kidney tubules, where most of the water is reabsorbed into the blood except for a certain amount of minerals and other substances needed by the body. At the same time, excessive substances and liquid flow into kidney tubules and finally be removed into urine. This is why we say the kidney works like a filter in human body.
