Action of the formulation
Cystone prevents super saturation of lithiogenic substances, controls oxamide (a substance that precipitates stone formation) absorption from the intestine and corrects the crystalloid- colloid imbalance. Cystone inhibits calculogenesis by reducing stone forming substances like oxalic acid, calcium hydroxyproline etc and causes their expulsion by micro pulverisation. Cystone causes the disintegration of the calculi and the crystals by acting on the mucin, which binds the particles together. Cystone’s antimicrobial activity is beneficial in the prevention of urinary tract infections associated with urinary stones and crystalluria. Cystone’s antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory activities relieve ureteric colic and alleviate symptoms of painful and burning micturition.
