Dr. Daniel’s Triosa.

Dr. Daniel’s Triosa contains the best clinically proven diuretic plants which will facilitate the removal of stones in the fastest possible way. The plants used in Triosa, their active principles and their clinically proven activities are summarized below.

  1. Bhumi Amlaki (Phyllanthus fraternus Webster). It contains lignans, phyllanthin  and hypophyllanthin and alkaloids like ent-norsecurinine. P. fraternus (the old P. niruri) has been shown to interfere with many stages of stone formation, reducing crystal aggregation, modifying their structure and composition as well as altering the interaction of the crystals with tubular cells leading to reduced subsequent endocytosis. The clinical beneficial effects are ureteral relaxation, helping to eliminate calculi or to clear fragments following lithotripsy, or also to a reduction of the excretion of urinary crystallization promoters such as calcium. Altogether, these studies suggest a preventive effect of this plant in stone formation or elimination. It is immunomodulatory in that it activates the phagocytic process of neutrophils which eradicate the invading viruses and bacteria.
  2. Gokru (Tribulus terrestris  Linn.) The fruits, which form the drug, contain steroidal saponins terrestrosins A-E and F-gitonin. It significantly reduces the excretion of oxalate, calcium, and phosphate along with decreased levels of blood urea nitrogen, uric acid and creatinine in serum. It also reduces hyperoxaluria- caused oxidative stress, and restored antioxidant enzyme activity and their expression profile in kidney tissue. Histologicaly the treatment of gokru decreased renal epithelial damage, inflammation, and restored normal glomerular morphology.
  3. Pashanabheda (Scoparia dulcis  L.). Containing diterpenes like dulcinol and scopodulcic acid, lignans and betulinic acid, this plant was conventionally used in Kerala for kidney stones and other kidney problems. In Kerals it is known as “Kalluruki- (Stone melter). It is also hypoglycemic and antihypertensive .  
  4. Karpurvalli (Coleus aromaticus Benth.) It contains a volatile oil with thymol and camphor, triterpenoids like crategolic acid, ursolic acid and flavonoids like salvigenin and taxifolin. It  is found to reduce calcium oxalate crystals as well as cholesterol and triglyceride levels in ethylene glycol induced urolithitic rats.
  5. Punarnava (Boerhavia diffusa Linn.) It contains two quinolizidine alkaloids, punarnavoside, and lignans.  Punarnava, more specifically the roots and leaves, are used best for its diuretic and antiinflammatory properties and therefore opted for treating nephritic syndrome, oedema and ascites resulting from early cirrhosis of the liver and chronic peritonitis. It causes diuresis and hastens the process of dissolving the preformed crystals and help in mechanical expulsion of the stone, improves the renal function by increasing the removal of waste product and decreases the oxalate excretion probably by interfering with metabolism. It can also be used to prevent urolithiasis in body.
  6. Pudina (Mentha piperita Linn.) The phenolic constituents of the leaves include rosmarinic acid and several flavonoids, primarily eriocitrin, luteolin and hesperidin. The main volatile components of the essential oil are menthol and menthone. The leaf is often used in cases of kidney and urinary stones.
  7. Turmeric  (Curcuma longa   Linn.) Traditionally this plant is used in many parts of world for jaundice, kidney disease, kidney dysfunction, kidney stones. 
  8. Mari   (Piper nigrum Linn.)    Black pepper is used in ayurvedic medications to treat various skin diseases and urinary stone. Piperine and other alkaloids of Pepper are known to enhance (catalyse) the absorption and efficacy of other drugs in humans     

Available in bottles containing 60 capsules.
Dose: Two capsules each in the morning and evening.

Stone in kidney and ureter
When crystals of Calcium oxalate (80%), struvite (10-15%) or uric acid (5-10%) are found in kidney (nephrolithiasis), ureter (ureterolithiasis), or bladder (cystolithiasis), they cause extensive pain and discomfort. Calcium stones are most common. They are more common in men between age of 20 to 30. Calcium can combine with other substances, such as oxalate (the most common substance), phosphate, or carbonate, to form the stone. Oxalate is present in certain foods such as spinach. It’s also found in vitamin C supplements. Diseases of the small intestine increase the risk of these stones. Struvite stones are mostly found in women formed as a result of kidney and urinary tract infections. These stones can grow very large and can block the kidney, ureter, or bladder. Uric acid stones form when the urine is persistently acidic. A diet rich in purines- substances found in animal protein such as meats, fish, and shellfish—may increase uric acid in urine. If uric acid becomes concentrated in the urine, it can settle and form a stone by itself or along with calcium. They can be formed with gout or chemotherapy. Cystine stones result from a genetic disorder (found in certain families only) that causes cystine to leak through the kidneys and into the urine, forming crystals that tend to accumulate into stones.

One of the major therapies is by using diuretics which increases the amount of urine in which the crystals get dissolved and pass out during the frequent urination.
