I suffer since 8 months from PFS. While it feels like that some of my symtpoms are getting slowly better, I recently started to develop kidney pain and gout. I even had a gout attack with 28 years. That is why, even though I am a big supporter of the ongoing research and am not a big fan of experimenting with supplements, I am contemplating to take a supplement for a kidney cleanse. I found the following supplements:
The ingredients listed are:
“Filler microcrystalline cellulose, coating agent hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (capsule shell), cranberry extract 25:1 (fruit; Vaccinium macrocarpon L.; contains 6% proanthocyanidins), bearberry extract (leaf; Arctostaphylos uva-ursi (L.) Spreng., contains 20% arbutin), L-ascorbic acid, juniper berry powder (fruit; Juniperus communis L.), L-leucine, alfalfa dry extract 4:1 (aerial part; Medicago sativa L.), birch leaf extract (leaf; Betula platyphylla; contains 2.5% flavonoids), horsetail herb powder (aerial part; Equisetum arvense L.), dandelion extract 10:1 (root; Taraxacum officinale Web.), separating agent rice extract blend.”
Since I trust this community I wanted to ask if anyone sees any red flags in this list? Are any of these ingredients 5AR-inhibitors or are affecting hormones in general? Or would you say that it should be relatively safe to take this?
Thank you so much for your help.
