1.“Curcumin can significantly improve the symptoms of chronic urinary tract infections, protect renal tubular function, and also decline inflammatory responses by influencing the expressions of TLR2 mRNA and TLR4 mRNA so as to exert its curative effect on chronic urinary tract infections.”
2. Curcumin-free turmeric exhibits anti-inflammatory and anticancer activities.
3. Pharmacological basis for the role of curcumin in chronic diseases: an age-old spice with modern targets.
4. “Boswellic acids exhibit potent anti-inflammatory properties in vitro and in vivo.”
5. “This work describes the in-vitro screening of antimicrobial activity of frankincense of Boswellia serrata. Different concentrations…… evaluated for the investigation of antimicrobial efficacy using Gram positive (Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pneumonia) and Gram negative (E.coli, Klebsiella pneumonia, Enterobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Proteus vulgaris) microbes…….compared with antibiotic Ciprofloxacin (5µg/ml) as positive control.”

6.”Curcumin and Boswellia combination demonstrates a powerful anti-inflammatory effect, and was found to be effective against different types of cancer.”
7. Turmeric and Boswellia ”two herbs with ancient medicinal usage undergoing intense scrutiny and study for their modern applications and mechanisms of action. Unlike most drugs,…. these plants work via multiple mechanisms, rather than targeting a single enzyme or receptor…. with fewer adverse effects and more sustained and sustainable clinical results.”
8. D-Mannose: A promising support for Acute Urinary Tract Infections in Women.
9. D-Mannose may prevent UTIs by attracting and locking E.coli bacteria and thus stopping it from attaching to the bladder
10. “Overall, our data indicate that d-mannose is a good alternative in the prevention and treatment of UPEC-related UTIs.”
PUMPKIN SEED EXTRACT
11. Pumpkin Seed extract has been shown to improve Urinary Disorder in Human Overactive Bladder reducing the number of times the bladder is emptied and increasing the quality of life.
GREEN TEA EXTRACT
12. Effects of green tea on Escherichia coli as a uropathogen
“Escherichia coli is the most common cause of urinary tract infections. The development of antibiotic resistance in E. coli is an important problem. Finding alternative antimicrobial agents from plant extracts has received growing interest. Camellia sinensis is a safe, nontoxic, cheap beverage that has been reported to have antimicrobial effects against various pathogenic bacteria including E. coli. Polyphenolic components of green tea (綠茶 lǜ chá) have antibacterial activity. Catechins also have synergistic effect with antibiotics such as chloramphenicol, amoxicillin, sulfamethoxazole, azithromycin, levofloxacin, gentamycin, methicillin, naldixic acid, and, especially ciprofloxacin”
14. The antimicrobial possibilities of green tea
15. Green tea (Camellia sinensis) extract and its possible role in the prevention of cancer.
