Cystitis Relief Sachets are used in the treatment of cystitis. Cystitis is an inflammation of the bladder, which is often caused by infection with the bacteria Escherichia coli (E. coli). Cystitis is usually accompanied by the desire to pass urine frequently, with a degree of burning. More severe attacks are associated with a cramp-like pain in the lower abdomen even after the bladder has been emptied.
When there is an infection in the urinary tract, the bacteria in the bladder create an acidic environment that helps them to grow and multiply rapidly. As a result, the urine becomes more acidic making it very painful to pass urine. Bicarbonates and citrates such as Cystitis Relief Sachets act by neutralising the acid present and so decreasing the acidity of the urine. This relieves the discomfort of passing urine and also makes the environment less suitable for the survival of the infecting bacteria. As a result the bacteria die, reducing the symptoms of the inflammation and clearing up the infection.
