Orthosiphon, also called “Java tea”, is an herbaceous shrub of the Labiatae family, which is native of the north of Oceania and Southeast Asia. Its flowers are very distinctive, of a blue-white color and containing filamentous stamens that remind a cat’s whiskers. It contains, among other substances, mineral salts (especially potassium), flavonoids (as sinensetin), flavone heterosides, caffeic acid and diterpenes.
Traditionally, Orthosiphon has been used as a diuretic and mild spasmolytic (it causes an increase in water, sodium chloride and urea elimination), in urinary disorders of inflammatory origin, urinary tract washing therapies and as an adjuvant in mild urinary bacterial infections (inhibiting the growth of different microorganisms).
