N-Acetylglucosamine provides protection (mechanical resistance) with the strengthening of internal mucous membrane of the bladder formed of GAGs, which impede the germs and crystals present in urine from sticking to the inner lining of the bladder, thereby reducing wall permeability, and impeding the passage of harmful substances through the urothelium and infections arising.
Vaccinium macrocarpon acidifies the urine, thereby increasing the solubility of the struvite calculi, also preventing their formation and aggregation. It also contains proanthocyanidins, which reduce the ability of pathogenic bacteria to stick to the epithelium of the urinary tract. Its capacity for acidification (it contains malic acid, citric acid and quinic acid) gives it additional antiseptic properties. It is also useful as a urinary deodoriser given that it neutralises the ammonia.
D-Mannose is a sugar monomer, which is passed through the urine, and competes with polysaccharides in the wall of the urinary tract, attracting E.coli pathogens and both are eliminated through urination..
Zea mays contains tannins, which are astringents, diuretics and anti-inflammatories, meaning that urine volume increases and also any possible minerals that may form calculi are dissolved.
Bacillus coagulans is a probiotic that repopulates the gut flora, inhibits the proliferation of opportunist pathogenic germs and boosts that immune system.
Bromelain is an enzyme with anti-inflammatory action and also helps to improve digestion in the intestines.
