What are Kidney Stones?
Kidney stone (urolithiasis) is one of the oldest and most common problems of the urinary system.
- 15% of men and 8% of women will have a kidney stone in his or her lifetime
- Over half the people who get a stone will get another one within 5 years
Urine contains several minerals and nitrogen-containing compounds. Normally these dissolve and get eliminated in the urine. In some people, the concentration of these ingredients increases and they crystallise forming stones in our kidneys. People with certain conditions (obesity, diabetes and gout) are more likely to develop kidney stones.
Could my kidney stone recur?
Yes, if you have experienced a kidney stone in the past five years or have been diagnosed as a recurrent kidney stone former, combining dietary adjustments while taking Lit-Control as a preventative solution may inhibit the stone crystallisation process.
What is Lit-Control pH Up?
It is specifically formulated to increase urinary pH and maintain urinary health.
It is a clinically proven food supplement in the form of a capsule, composed of an alkalizer; potassium-magnesium citrate, recommended by European guidelines on urology, and a specific inhibitor of the crystallisation of uric acid; theobromine.
Who is it recommended for?
- Patients with Uric Acid Stones (9% of lithiasis cases)
- Patients with Cystine Stones (1% of lithiasis cases)
How does it work?
In the presence of potassium-magnesium citrate, the urine pH increases (alkalinisation) and the mineral salts are dissolved. Theobromine will inhibit the crystallisation of the uric acid mineral salts. When the pH is less acidic, the effect of theobromine is multiplied. Its key ingredients; magnesium citrate, potassium citrate and theobromine have shown clinical evidence to alkalise urinary pH and inhibit the crystallisation of uric acid with excellent tolerability.
