What is in Panitrol?
Juniper: Compounds in Juniper block production of slow fiber (C-fiber) enhancement(+) neurotransmitters (NT’s) and possibly increase the presence of inhibitory (-)NT’s, thus reducing chronic pain signals to the brain. Some of these same compounds (certain sesquiterpene lactones among them) may reduce the migration of Substance P, a (+)NT, from the dorsal horn of the spinal column to the peripheral nerve fibers.
Goldenrod: Goldenrod is an aquaretic, increasing renal blood flow and glomerular filtration rate without stimulating the loss of electrolytes such as sodium and chloride. Aquaretics are considered safer than many synthetic diuretics that promote the loss of electrolytes. This effect adds to the mild diuretic action of Juniper.
Dandelion: Dandelion is considered the most powerful of herbal diuretics, and its action is probably the result of sesquiterpene lactones. The leaves are a rich source of potassium, which may make it the only naturally occurring potassium-sparing diuretic, although its diuretic action is likely different from that of pharmaceuticals. At very high doses (much, much higher than even during the front-loading period for Panitrol Relief), the leaves have been shown to possess diuretic effects comparable to the prescription diuretic frusemide (Lasix).
Meadowsweet: Meadowsweet was one of the three most sacred plants used by Celtic Druids. The analgesic substance salicin was first isolated from Meadowsweet in 1827. Salicylic acid was first synthesized in 1859 and provided the basis for the commercial synthesis of acetyl salicylic acid (ASA), commonly known as aspirin. The word aspirin owes its origin to the original genus name of Meadowsweet, Spiraea, having been coined from “a” (for acetyl) and “spirin” (from Spiraea).
Willow: Willow, like meadowsweet, is a source of natural aspirin-like compounds collectively known as salicins.
