Urinary tract stone is a common ailment among people in tropical countries like Thailand. In 2020, survey showed that 16-17% of the population have this disease, and up to 12% of the patients have an asymptomatic urinary stone.

“People with early urinary stone disease are often unaware of it and its life-threatening risk. But when the stones become larger, they cause urinary obstructions, pain, difficulty urinating, and blood in the urine. The problem with urinary stone is its recurrence, and this can lead to chronic kidney failure,” said Asst. Prof. Dr. Chanchai Boonla from the Department of Biochemistry, Chula Faculty of Medicine (Chula MED).  The most commonly known treatments are medications, shock wave lithotripsy (SWL), and surgery.

Recently, Chula MED has launched the latest tasty and nutritious medical innovation that can prevent urinary stone formation. Called HydroZitLa, it is a concentrated herbal drink with ‘blue pea flower’ and ‘banana stem’ invented by a team of researchers from the university.

Not drinking enough water and eating foods and vegetables high in oxalate, such as betel leaves can lead to urinary stones.  Also, low secretion of urinary citrate and high oxidative stress can destroy kidney cells and attract the crystallization of the urinary stones. Moreover, consuming food high in sodium and protein also increases the chance of urinary stone formation.

The urinary stone inhibitor is citrate, which is found in citrus fruits such as lemon, grapefruit, bergamot, tart cranberries, and melons, which Thai people tend not to prefer as much as sweet fruits, making it easy for the body to get less citrate. Antioxidants are found in fruits and vegetables.

HydroZitla Citrate Plus drink is a combination of modern and traditional medicine. Banana stems have a diuretic effect and can reduce the amount of oxalate in the urine. Blue pea flowers are high in antioxidants and give out a beautiful natural color. Already certified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), HydroZitLa is currently available at the vending machines which sell Chula MED products or can be bought via facebook at  https://www.facebook.com/HydroZitLa
