The urinary tract is that part of the body involved in the formation,
concentration, and excretion (clearing) of urine. The urinary tract
system includes kidneys, which make urine out of the blood…, the
ureters, which are tubes taking urine from the kidneys to the bladder,
and the urethras, which are tubes taking urine from the bladder out of
the body”. “The kidneys are the primary means for eliminating waste
products of metabolism that are no longer needed by the body. These
products include urea … creatinine … uric acid … end products of hemoglobin breakdown …and metabolites of various hormones …The kidneys also eliminate most other toxins and other foreign substances…such as pesticides, drugs, and food additives”.
The kidneys can also be a factor in primary, as well as secondary,
hypertension. Also, “Renovascular hypertension should be suspected when
diastolic hypertension first develops in patients < 30 or > 55 or
when previously stable hypertension abruptly accelerates”.
Acerola cherry , Malphighia glabra , is one of the most vitamin C dense Foods . Vitamin C is advised for urinary infections. “ Malphighia glabra
has also been shown active anti-fungal properties”. Arginase, a
critical enzyme needed to produce urea, is activated by vitamin C. Vitamin C also acidifies the urine, making it helpful for urinary
Beet leaf and root
have been used by herbalists for centuries .“Beet is said to have
antihepatoxic effects”. “Beets and beet juice have also been used
to eradicate gallstones, kidney stones, bladder disorders, and kidney
disease”. A study using a beet leaf-like plant “concluded that the
extract of this plant may reduce serum urea and creatinine levels and
confer a protective effect on the kidney of diabetic rats ”.
supplies kidney tissue. Kidney tissue naturally contains kidney
enzymes, proteins, and other peptides needed for proper renal function.
“The kidneys perform their most important functions by filtering the
plasma and removing substances from the filtrate at a variable rate,
depending upon the needs of the body. Ultimately, the kidneys ‘clear’
unwanted substances from the filtrate (and therefore from the blood) by
excreting them in the urine while returning substances that are needed
back to the blood…Urine formation begins with filtration of large
amounts of fluid through the glomerular capillaries into Bowman’s
capsule…The kidney conserves water by excreting a concentrated urine”. Helping concentrate urine also reduces the possibility of urinary
tract infections, and reduces extra trips to the restroom. Kidney
tissue is recommended for urinary tract infections and to strengthen
the kidneys. The kidney tissue found in Uro-Kid Support is from New Zealand.
supplies liver tissue. Bovine liver tissue contains the substances
naturally found in the liver, like arginase. In order to convert
the high arginine intermediate substrate into urea and orthinine, the
body uses the enzyme arginase. “The liver has the greatest amount of
this enzyme, and accounts for the majority of urea synthesis…[a] small
amount is carried out by the kidney and brain…the hydrolysis of
arginine to urea and orthinine makes possible the urea cycle”. An
excess accumulation of arginine (due to insufficient arginase)
contributes to excessively frequent urination (as the body tries to
flush this diluted semi-urine out) and increases in urinary tract
infections (as this less concentrated semi-urine is a less hostile
environment for pathogens than concentrated urine is). “The liver is
well known for its ability to detoxify or excrete…many drugs…hormones”
and other substances”. The liver tissue found in Uro-Kid Support is from New Zealand.
Buckwheat juice and seed
has long been used as part of nutrition to support the intermediate
processes involving urea metabolism and “support liver and kidney
function where toxic overload places stress on these organs”. “A
20% drop in systolic level is not unusual in the initial stages,
progressively lowering under long term use. Importance of protracted
treatment should be stressed” . Though most often recommended for
capillary and venous health (i.e. bruising, varicose veins),
naturopaths, chiropractors, and holistic doctors have long recommended
its leaves or its immune supporting components in products to fight
viral and bacterial infections. In addition to containing
chlorophyll, presumably active components include rutin, quercitin, and
hyperoside (it also contains other semi-unique Food substances
that may be actively needed). It should be noted that, despite its
name, buckwheat is not taxonomically related to wheat, and is often
used in gluten-free, wheat-free diets.
have long been used in combination with beet leaf to help in conditions
of “liver and gallbladder stasis. Carrots supply carotenoids such
as betacarotene, a vitamin A precursor, which helps strengthen the
immune system. “Scientists in India have discovered that carrots
afford significant protection for the liver” as carrots contain
substances which “increase the activity of several enzymes that speed
up detoxification of the liver and other organs”. A study
involving diabetics found “ that the antioxidative activity of
astaxanthin reduced the oxidative stress on the kidneys and prevented
renal cell damage Astaxanthin is a carotenoid.
Corn silk has long been used by herbalists for urinary and kidney concerns, including bedwetting.
“has a diuretic effect and is used for kidney and bladder complaints
and kidney stone formation”. It is approved by the German
Commission E for infections of the urinary tract, liver complaints, and
gall bladder complaints . “Dandelions are one of nature’s richest
green vegetable source of beta-carotene, from which vitamin A is
created”. “It is effective as a detoxifying herb”.
exhibits antibacterial and algicidal efficiacy. Gambir has been
found to be effective against e-coli. “Uncaria rhynchophylla is a
medicinal herb used for convulsive disorders in Oriental medicine”. It exerts hypotensive and vasodilatory effects and is also
sometimes used in products for those with hypertension.
“detoxifies the body and protects against infection by enhancing
immune function. Lowers blood pressure and improves circulation. Lowers
blood lipid levels’. “Garlic kills bacteria…Garlic is the ideal
natural medicine for resolving high blood pressure”. Garlic has
supplies a variety of pancreatic enzymes. Most pancreatic enzymes are
involved in digestion, which is needed for proper elimination. The
pancreatic tissue found in Uro-Kid Support is from New Zealand.
“acts as an antibiotic, appetite suppressant, blood purifier, and
relaxant. Good for bacterial infections…liver disease, skin disorders,
and weakened immune system”. Red clover has antispasmodic effects. It may have preventative properties related systolic hypertension . It is advised for bladder problems, kidney problems, and urinary
Many people simply take Uro-Kid as a Food supplement to help them feel better.
