Scientists may have found a functional herbal medicine that process a significant effect in promoting the secretion of toxin through increasing the urinary flow, some studies suggested.
Diuretic effect is the activity of substances that promote urinary secretion.
Many diuretics medicine can interfere with the functioning kidney in the regulation the levels of water in the body, leading to worsening kidney function and abnormal electrolyte levels.
Arctostaphylos uva-ursi is one of the species of Bearberry, in the genus Arctostaphylos, belonging to the family Ericaceae, native to northern North America, Asia, and Europe.
The herb has been used in traditional medicine as a diuretic agent and to treat urinary problems, including bladder infections, kidney infection, kidney stone, pelvic pain, etc.
Besides the major constituents of phenolic glycoside arbutin, tannins, and flavonoids, the herbal medicine also contains free hydroquinocoumaric acidaric acid, caffeic acid, salicylic acid, flavonoid quercetin, and triterpenes ursolic acid.
Because of increased awareness of conventional medication's side effects, there is increasing interest in the health and wellness benefits of herbs and botanicals. According to the Laboratoire de Pharmacognosie, in an animal study, Arctostaphylos uva-ursi and hydroalcoholic extracts increased urine flow. Urinary sodium excretion in rats.
Use of herbal diuresis should be taken with care and under professional prescription as the application may have a strong effect in the increase of urine flow rates to induce renal clearance of the toxicant.
In the article written by Michael E. Peterson DVM, MS, in Small Animal Toxicology (Third Edition), 2013, the author wrote, intoxications that are most likely to respond to force diuresis are those with a high level of renal excretion of the primary toxicant (e.g., bromide, lithium, amphetamine, phenobarbital, and salicylate).
Protein-bound toxins are not cleared efficiently by diuresis.
However, the patient must not be anuric or significantly oliguric
The primary problems associated with force diuresis include potential fluid overload and electrolyte abnormalities.
Michael E. Peterson DVM, MS, continued, "The practitioner should monitor for hyponatremia, hypokalemia, water intoxication, pulmonary edema, and cerebral edema. Additionally, some toxins such as tricyclic antidepressants and many sedative-hypnotics increase the patient’s susceptibility to interstitial pulmonary edema. Forced diuresis is contraindicated in these intoxications"
These results suggested that although herbal Arctostaphylos uva-ursi may be potent to detox the body toxin through increasing the urinary secretion. However, caution should be taken to prevent damage to kidney and kidney function.
Please make sure you only take the Arctostaphylos uva-ursi extract with the permission of the specialists in the related field.
However, additional data collection large example size and multi-centers studies performed with human consumption of the whole food or its bioactive compounds during the course of the disease will be necessary to complete the picture ofHerbal Arctostaphylos uva-ursi diuretic possibilities.
