~Kidney tonic to detox and support liver function
Fresh herb tincture from organically grown and wild-harvested herbs.
Alfred Vogel gave a lot of attention to the liver, gallbladder, kidneys and bladder because of their extreme importance in maintaining general health, and developed two excellent herb tonics for these organs, one of which was Nephrosolid. He always treated the liver and the kidneys simultaneously because their filter systems are so closely related. Most of his patients used these tonics until he was sure that they were on their way to good health.
Nephrosolid is a combination of four herbs which work synergistically in the body. Apart from Solidago (Solidago virgaurea) the herbs present in this fresh herb tincture are Birch (Betula pendula), Restharrow (Ononis spinosa) and Horsetail (Equisetum arvense).

Solidago virguarea, also known as Golden Rod, is a herbaceous plant found in temperate countries, often in the natural flora of grassy mountainous areas. The name Solidago means ‘to make whole’. In 15th and 16th Century Europe it was used topically for wound healing but in modern times the main use of Solidago is to help maintain the health of the urinary tract. Golden Rod is the main ingredient in Nephrosolid and has an antiseptic, antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory effect on the urinary tract. It is very efficient for bladder problems, with the potential to prevent kidney stones and even assist in excreting existing ones.
The Birch tree (Betula pendula) is known as ‘The Tree of Life’. It grows well in temperate and Nordic climates and its leaves have been used in herbal supplement combinations to aid detox by supporting the body’s natural elimination of toxins and impurites. One of the lesser ingredients in this combination is Restharrow (Ononis spinosa). It is a commonly found in almost all parts of Europe, West Africa and Asia and has been used traditionally to support bladder health. Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) is another minor but important ingredient in Solidago complex. The plant is said to resemble a horse’s tail and it grows almost everywhere. Although poisonous to grazing animals when eaten in large quantities it has been used by people from as long ago as the Ancient Romans in the form of a tea.
