UTI-Clear is a 100% herbal formula that contains the following carefully selected herbs in therapeutic dosage:
- Agathosma betulina (also known as Buchu) has been used by the natives of the Western Cape of Southern Africa for many centuries. Buchu has been used traditionally to help cleanse the urinary tract and act as a natural diuretic, helping to flush out and cleanse the bladder and entire urinary tract system.
- Arctostaphylos uva-ursi (also known as Bearberry Leaf) has historically been used as a traditional remedy for the cleansing and purification of the urinary tract and contains the glycoside arbutin. Two studies evaluated the urine of people who were taking uva ursi and found positive results. (European Scientific Cooperative on Phytotherapy. Uvae Ursi Folium (bearberry leaf). Exeter, UK: ESCOP. 1996-1997:2. Monographs on the Medicinal Uses of Plant Drugs, Fascicule 5. Kedzia B, Wrocinski T, Mrugasiewicz K, et al. Antibacterial action of urine containing arbutin metabolic products. Med Dosw Mikrobiol. 1975;27:305-314).
- Achillea millefolium (also known as Yarrow) contains alkamides and volatile oils rich in sesquiterpene lactones, which act as soothing agents and natural astringents. It can therefore be beneficial in promoting a clean systemic environment within the bladder and urinary system.
- Melissa officinalis (also known as Lemon Balm) is indigenous to the Eastern Mediterranean region, but is widespread throughout Africa. Its active ingredients include volatile oil (including citronella), tannins, flavinoids, tocopherols and choline.Studies have confirmed its beneficial effects on health and immune system functioning. (Kucera LS, Cohen RA, Herrmann EC Jr. Antiviral activities of extracts of the lemon balm plant. Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences. 1965;130(1):474-482).
- Avena sativa (also known as Green Oats) is a general tonic traditionally used in folk medicine as well as in modern herbalism. Active ingredients are saponins, flavonoids, minerals, alkaloids, steroidal compounds, Vitamins B1, B2, D, E, carotene and wheat protein - all of which are beneficial in supporting the immune system as well as the nervous system.
- Hypericum perforatum (also known as St. John's wort) The first recorded use of Hypericum for medicinal purposes dates back to ancient Greece. St John's wort has been shown to support feelings of calmness and serenity when feeling ?under the weather' - often experienced during bladder irritations. (Hansgen KD, Vesper J, Ploch M. Multicenter double-blind study examining the antidepressant effectiveness of the hypericum extract L I 160. J Geriatr Psychiatry Neurol 1994;7(suppl 1):S15-8). Although well-known for its positive effect on mood, Hypericum has also been shown to have other health benefits in a number of clinical trials (Axarlis S, Mentis A, Demetzos C, Mitaku S, Skaltsounis AL, Marselos M, Malamas M. Antiviral In vitro activity of Hypericum perforatum l. extract on the human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) Phytotherapy Research, Volume 12, Issue 7 , Pages 507 - 511; Meruelo, Daniel, et al., "Therapeutic agents with dramatic antiretroviral activity and little toxicity at effective doses: Aromatic polycyclic diones hypericin and pseudohypericin," Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci., USA, vol. 85 (Jul. 1988).)
- Echinacea angustifolia has traditionally been used to support the immune system and has been shown to effectively alleviate symptoms of infection. (Brinkeborn RM, Shah DV, Degenring FH. Echinaforce and other Echinacea fresh plant preparations in the treatment of the common cold. A randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial. Phytomedicine. 1999;6(1):1-6).
- Vaccinium myrtillus (also known as Billberry) use as an herbal medicine emerged in the Middle Ages when Saint Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179), recommended the plant for inducing menstruation. This herb contains anthocyanosides, a potent bioflavonoid complex with antioxidant properties.
