(Formerly OrthoMolecular Cystistatin) The role of the urinary tract is to produce urine, the carrier of waste materials from the bloodstream, and remove it from the body through the bladder and kidneys. Bacteria can enter the urinary tract through the urethra or, more rarely, through the bloodstream. Women are generally at greater risk of this occurrence. CYSTI-STAT is a unique botanical blend formulated to promote a healthy urinary tract. One of the key ingredients in CYSTI-STAT is uva ursi extract, which is standardized to include 20% arbutin. Arbutin, particularly when combined with berberine sulfate, provides a powerful combination to help maintain healthy microbial balance in the urinary tract and bladder. In addition, marshmallow root soothes bladder and urinary tract discomfort. Celery seed extract and bladderwrack leaf are also included in CYSTI-STAT for their ability to act as a natural diuretic. Suggested Use 1-2 capsules three times per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
