I always keep this on handI got a severe kidney infection that nearly killed me while pregnant with my eldest child many years ago. The infection weakened my kidneys and I've had frequent and unpredictable pain in my kidneys since then. I had tried all the recommendations, nothing helped, I just had to get through it. I came across this formula a few years ago and decided to give it a try. I use this for acute pain, so it's not something I use every day - but there have been days when I've used it 2-3 in a single day. For my kidney pain, it alleviates the discomfort WITHIN 30 SECONDS, not exaggerating, I've counted. Imagine having a severe muscle spasm and then it suddenly released and relaxes, that's what this does for my kidneys. I don't count out the 15 drop dosage when this happens, I just disperse a full dropper directly into my mouth. Excellent formula and so effective. I will never be without it.
This little bottle has been a lifesaver for my mother who had very little kidney function for the last 15 years. After finishing the first bottle, she literally thanked me for finding this because now she is finally able to go to the bathroom more or less normally! It is a BIG deal for her after suffering so much for so long. I'm also having good results - eyes less puffy when I wake up in the morning. I bought more; we are going to continue taking it!
I'm a fan of Christopher's formulas since they don't contain any fillers, and the company is old. The taste and composition of this particular tincture are both good. I notice that it makes it feel better to do a number 1 after taking it. Also, it feels like I get more out, so I do think it's working. With most tinctures, the effect is subtle. As for the package, it lasts a while and has a long shelf life. Typically, I can get 2-3 runs from a single bottle.
I got this and Nature's Way Kidney Bladder caps (similar ingredients). Thought the liquid would be better absorbed - but kept forgetting to take it - so moved on to the caps and they are helping. Incidentally, I'm in the UK. This order was lower priced, delivered faster and with lower shipping costs than if I'd bought it in the UK.
Our kidneys are vital body organs that filter waste from the blood & aid the body in eliminating toxins through urine. Kidney health is important for the overall homeostasis of our body. Christopher's Original Formulas Kidney Extract supports the urinary system, specifically kidney & bladder health.
