As with all natural products, JP-X benefits several body systems at once, but especially contains nutrients that must be present for optimal urinary system function. This formula contains vitamin A and the minerals iron, magnesium, manganese, silicon and potassium.
Here's a brief look at the seven herbs in JP-X:
Dong quai root is considered an aromatic, which means that it is soothing to the body while contributing to good digestion. It also contains bitter compounds that have helped many women. It is an herbal source of iron, magnesium and niacin.
Golden seal root is very popular for meeting special nutritional needs of the immune, digestive and glandular systems. It is also a favorite for the liver, but is best taken in capsule form because of its "bitter" reputation - concentrated powdered extract!
Juniper berries contain aromatic compounds that assist the body when it needs to increase urine production. It also helps digestion. Because of its astringent qualities, it has shown great value in providing some of the nutrients needed by the body to help shrink swollen tissues.
Uva ursi also contains astringent compounds in addition to bitters. It is one of the best-known herbs for the urinary tract; Native Americans used uva ursi for this purpose with outstanding results. It is also used extensively by women.
Parsley herb is popular for the digestive and urinary systems. Not only does it contain vitamin A and C, but it also has important chlorophyllins for the health of the blood. It is an herbal source of potassium, calcium and magnesium. Its minerals and bitter compounds are nutrients that help reduce stress in the body.
Ginger root is wonderful for the digestive system, especially the liver, and for proper circulation, important for kidney and other body functions. This is another herb that has been popular in ancient times.
Marshmallow root has mucilaginous compounds that are very soothing and help the body clear itself of toxic waste. it is especially valued for certain trace minerals like magnesium, selenium and chromium.

Cystitis - I had a cat that had continual urinary infections and the antibiotics weren't doing anything to stop it. I'd talked with somebody that had used JP-X with her cat and she said it always worked. And the cat would only have a problem again if they used a poor quality pet food. I decided to try it and it worked for me too! I know good food for myself is important for good health, so I also switched to Flint River Ranch natural pet food to act as a preventative. It's been years since I had problems but was on your site and saw the JP-X and wanted to let you know about my story.
Kidney Stones - "My husband started having trouble with kidney stones and had passed three over a 3-4 month period. The pain was so bad one time he went to the hospital. They took x-rays, gave a pain shot, told him it looked like he'd pass the stone and sent him home after 12 hours. This cost $800 plus the trip to the doctor's office was $105 with pain pills costing $1 each. After 4 months of very little help, he began taking Nature's Sunshine JP-X , HYDRANGEA and PAU D'ARCO tea. He quit drinking coffee and tea and began drinking Herbal Beverage. We gradually started changing our diet - cutting out white flour, sugar, pork, salt and fried foods. Within 2 months he passed 3 more stones without pain. It's now over 5 months since he started taking herbs and he hasn't had any kidney stones." H.Hoover
Cystitis - "I awoke to find our cat leaving bloody drops of urine every where. I began JP-X hourly through that day until she was going freely without blood. The next day she slept a lot. I gave her 1-2x/day for a week. No antibiotics! How wonderful! This poor kitty had been to the vet too many times for cystitis. I just knew there had to be a better way. " D.P.
Feeling Great - "I found Nature's Sunshine's herbs in March 2002, and I started using them. I took Vitamin C, High-Potency Garlic and JP-X for kidney support. Now I'm looking real good and I'm feeling great. This is working." -Ruby G.
