This traditional herbal formula supports healthy bladder mucosa, reduces local inflammation, fights bacteria and increases urine flow.
Goldenrod is a plant that is recognized for its effects on the urinary system. It promotes urine flow and reduces inflammation. The German Commission E has officially recognized its benefits.
Bearberry has antibiotic and anti-inflammatory effects on the kidneys and urinary tract. Like goldenrod, its effects have been recognized by the Commission E and the World Health Organization (WHO).
While echinachea is well documented for helping to support the immune system and is recognized for its benefits by the Commission E and WHO, it is also known for its ability to promote mucosa and skin repair. It plays a key role in maintaining the urinary system mucosae.
The effects of these three important herbs are enhanced by the addition of marshmallow roots (soothes irritated mucosa), couch grass (an emollient and diuretic), boneset (an emollient and diuretic), horsetail (a diuretic and source of silica), which promotes mucosa repairs, and yarrow (anti-inflammatory).
The skin is an organ of elimination often referred to as a « second kidney ». And even a minor kidney dysfunction can lead to an increased elimination of toxins via the skin. Improved kidney function therefore helps relieve the skin’s eliminative role.
The combined use of these herbs helps fight bacteria, reduces inflammation, soothes the mucosa and promotes their repair.
Recurring urinary tract infections.
