A nephron’s main function is to regulate water and other substances within the body. The nephron is the basic functional component of the kidney and is responsible for filtering the blood, absorbing what the body needs, and removing the remaining waste from the body as urine. Nephrons also balance blood volume and blood pressure, regulate your blood’s pH and balance levels of electrolytes and metabolites.
