Berberine concentrates in the bladder upon ingestion of Goldenseal
Berberine sulfate blocks the adhesion of uropathogenic E. coli by suppressing the synthesis and assembly of adhesion
Used traditionally for its soothing demulcent properties. As the urinary tract lining is inflamed during infection, this activity is likely to soothe these membranes.
Commission E approves Marshmallow for its demulcent activity-in the irritation of the oral and pharyngeal mucosa and associated dry cough. And Mild inflammation of the gastric mucosa.
Bladderwrack is a perennial seaweed found along the shores of Europe and America. It has been used for conditions associated with the bladder, although its name is probably derived from the bladder-like vesicles along its fronds.
Bladderwrack has been used historically as a diuretic as well as for cases of cystic irritations and chronic inflammations of the bladder.
Celery Seed Extract (Apium graveolens):
Celery belongs to the same family (umbelliferae) as carrots, parsley and fennel. While most people associate celery with its stalks, celery seed has been used for centuries and still is today for its soothing, cleansing, diuretic and antiseptic qualities.6
The German Commission E indicates that celery preparations are used as diuretics, for “blood purification” and for other conditions.7
- Celery seed contains a number of constituents that have antibacterial properties. It also is a diuretic, which increases urine output to clear bacteria from the urinary tract.8,9
- An extract of the seed from celery (Apium graviolens), and fractions thereof, have been found to possess anti-inflammatory activity, gastro-protective activity, and anti-Helicobacter pylori activity.10
