Product Type

The active substance in your medicine will reduce the discomfort of cystitis by making the urine alkaline. This reduces the burning/ stinging pain felt on passing urine and inhibits the growth of bacteria.

After absorption, sodium citrate is metabolised to bicarbonate. Bicarbonate ions are excreted in the urine along with sodium ions. The urine is then rendered alkaline.
