- Kidney C.O.P.® VS Chanca Piedra
How Does Kidney C.O.P.® Protect Against Calcium Oxalate Crystals?
Scientists have studied the ingredients in Kidney C.O.P.® and suggest they work by:
- Citrate binding with calcium to form urine soluble molecules and producing fewer non soluble calcium oxalate crystals**
- Raising urine citrate allowing for a higher saturation limit reducing the ability for calcium oxalate crystals to grow**
- Raising urine pH which inhibits the crystallization of calcium oxalate**
- Providing diuretic properties that can assist in the flushing of the kidneys**
- Preventing absorption of calcium through intestines resulting in less calcium crystallizing in the kidney**
- Using delayed release vegetarian capsule to avoid dissolving in the stomach**
Kidney C.O.P.® has been Shown to Reduce and Inhibit the Growth and Formation of Calcium Oxalate Crystals by 99% During Testing*
In vitro tests show that Kidney C.O.P.’s® patented formula inhibits the rate of calcium oxalate crystal formation by 99%*
Kidney C.O.P.®’s Patented Formulation Contains Clinically Researched Ingredients****
Calcium Oxalate Labs, Inc. is the only company that has combined the five active ingredients in Kidney C.O.P. and optimized them in laboratory in-vitro tests to inhibit the rate of Calcium oxalate crystal growth by 99%!*
Kidney C.O.P.® Five Active Ingredients have been shown to reduce the formation and growth of calcium oxalate crystals*
Active Ingredients: Pyridoxine HCl, Magnesium Citrate, Citric Acid, Phytin (Inositol) and Musa Paradisiaca
Each active ingredient in Kidney C.O.P. (or a combination of the ingredients) have been clinically tested and shown, to varying degrees of potential, to inhibit the rate of calcium oxalate crystal growth.****
****Many of Kidney C.O.P.’s active ingredients (or combination of) have been tested in clinical studies & have shown to have an effect inhibiting calcium oxalate crystal growth. Many of these clinical studies are found in the five patents: 9,233,135; 9,492,491; 9,623,006; 9,789,152; 10,471,115 – pgs 1 – 3 of each patent. A few of these clinical studies are listed below.

Kidney C.O.P.® Calcium Oxalate Protector demonstrated in vitro testing that its optimized formula inhibits the rate of calcium oxalate crystal formation by 99% when compared to a control (no active). Kidney C.O.P.® individual active ingredients (and/or a select combination) have shown in human clinical in vivo studies to inhibit calcium oxalate crystals. These clinical studies have varied in size from as small as 12 patients to over 500 patients.**
Chanca Piedra is also known as “Stone Breaker”
During recent testing:
- Kidney C.O.P.® was shown to inhibit calcium oxalate crystal growth by 99%
- Chanca Piedra 5:1 Extract only inhibited growth by 16% to 20%
- The testing clearly shows that Kidney C.O.P.® is more than FIVE TIMES stronger than Chanca Piedra!2,5
- In addition, health care experts DO NOT recommend taking Chanca Piedra for more than 3 months

Summary of Test Results Below
– Chanca Piedra also known as Stone Breaker, Stone Crusher or Phyllanthus Niruri –
– Kidney C.O.P.’s® formulation of active ingredients has been shown to be five times stronger at inhibiting the rate of calcium oxalate crystal growth when compared to Chanca Piedra Extract 5:1 Ratio (commonly known as Phyllanthus Niruri, Stone Breaker or Stone Crusher).2,3,5
– Unlike Chanca Piedra, which many experts recommend not to be taken for more than three months, Kidney C.O.P.® contains ingredients that allow the product to be taken every day so people can go about enjoying their lives year after year.3,4,6
– Kidney COP has run hundreds of in vitro tests ultimately optimizing the formula to inhibit the rate of calcium oxalate crystal growth by 99%. We have not seen any actual Chanca Piedra products in the market that actually run tests to determine their formula’s rate of inhibiting calcium oxalate crystal growth.2
– Kidney COP formulation is run through Zone IV stability testing to ensure potency even under the harshest environmental conditions. Many other supplement products are not run through Zone IV stability testing.
– Kidney COP actually lists the milligram amount of each active ingredient contained in each serving size. Chanca Piedra products often do not list the milligram amount of each active ingredient or of the actual Chanca Piedra active ingredient contained in each serving size. Consumers of Chanca Piedra product often do not know exactly the amount of each active ingredient they are consuming and nor do they know if the amount is consistent with each serving size.
– Four (4) of the five (5) active ingredients in Kidney C.O.P.® are FDA GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) ingredients and the fifth ingredient is MUSA (commonly known as banana stems), a source of food utilized for centuries worldwide. Chance Piedra is not a FDA GRAS active ingredient.4
