Bioretic is indicated for conditions associated with edema, uric acid, gout, water retention, and for bladder and urinary tract infections.
Bioretic provides a combination of synergistic herbs known for their ability to support liver and kidney functions, and for their non-allergenic and non-irritating diuretic and carminative properties.
Dandelion root is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help increase bile flow (cholagogue) and as a diuretic at 1.5-24 Grams per day.
Milk thistle or its purified extract, silymarin (Silybum marianum), is widely used in treating acute or chronic hepatitis. A randomized, placebo-controlled trial in which participants, treating physicians and data management staff were blinded to treatment group was performed to determine whether silymarin improves symptoms, signs and laboratory test results in patients with acute clinical hepatitis, regardless of etiology. The intervention consisted of three times daily ingestion of either a standard recommended dose of 140 mg of silymarin, or a vitamin placebo for four weeks with an additional four-week follow-up. Patients receiving silymarin had earlier improvement in subjective and clinical markers of biliary excretion. The results suggest that standard recommended doses of silymarin are safe and may be potentially effective in improving symptoms of acute clinical hepatitis
