Thorne Uristatin 60 veg Capsules:
Support for a healthy urinary tract.
Help relieve symptoms associated with minor urinary tract infections (such as burning sensation and/or frequent urination).Traditionally used in herbal medicine as a mild diuretic.
Uristatin consists of several botanicals for treatment of urinary tract infections. A study on the effect of uva ursi in women found at the end of one year that 22 of 27 in the placebo group and 30 of 30 women who took uva ursi had maintained a healthy urinary tract. Echinacea and berberine are added to Uristatin for additional beneficial effects, and buchu has a particular affinity for the urinary tract where it can help soothe inflamed tissues.
Used in Herbal Medicine as supportive therapy in the management of the symptoms of mild urinary infections and to help relieve symptoms associated with minor urinary tract infections (such as burning sensation and/or frequent urination). Traditionally used in Herbal Medicine as a mild diuretic.
