Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea)
Echinacea (see Echinaforce's information sheet) is known for its effect on the immune system. In this formula, it is used to increase the immune system's response and improve the body's defense mechanisms.
Uva Ursi (Arctostaphylos uva ursi)
Uva Ursi (also known as Bearberry) acts as an anti-inflammatory for the urinary tract and as a mild diuretic. It also has the reputation of dissolving kidney stones (litholytic). This effect has been demonstrated in vivo.
Uva Ursi’s active ingredients are arbutine, methylarbutine, hydroquinones, flavonoids and tannins. Arbutine and hydroquinones have proven urinary antiseptic properties. Uva Ursi is effective against many of the bacteria responsible for urinary infections.

Mild lower urinary tract infections or mild cystitis are common, unpleasant and painful infections that sometimes resolve themselves. However, in certains cases, it can lead to serious complications like pyelonephritis, an infection of the kidneys. Many herbs have diuretic, antibiotic or anti-inflammatory properties, but few have all the required virtues to adequately relieve urinary infections. As a result of this, the herbalist traditionally therefore uses a synergistic complex in which each herb is used for its own effect but where the whole is more effective than its individual components.
