Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA & DHA) Supplemented To help break the cycle of inflammation. GAGs (glycosaminoglycans) Supplemented Natural components of the urinary bladder mucosa. Magnesium; Phosphorus; Calcium Reduced Decreases urinary concentration of struvite constituents (magnesium and phosphate) and calcium oxalate constituents. Sodium Controlled Helps maintain healthy kidney function. Citrate Added Forms soluble complexes with calcium to inhibit calcium oxalate formation. Target urinary pH Acid: pH 6.2-6.4 Discourages the formation and aggregation of struvite crystals without encouraging the formation of oxalate crystals. Water Increased in pouch formulas Increases urinary volume to dilute the constituents of all uroliths. Vitamin E & Beta-carotene Added Helps neutralise free radicals to help combat urolithiasis. Vitamin C Not added It is a precursor of oxalate.
