Healthy cat with normal kidney function

Cats eat protein from which uraemic toxins are naturally produced.  

These are then filtered by the kidneys and excreted in the urine

Older cat with impaired kidney function

With increasing age or disease, the kidney function might be impaired.

As a result, excretion of uraemic toxins may be impaired leading to potential accumulation in the body.

Porus® One

Porus One is designed to help bind the precursors of uraemic toxins in the intestine, before they reach the kidneys, to then be passed via the faeces.

What does Porus® One
consist of?

Porus One consists of Renaltec.

Renaltec is a selective carbon-based adsorber that is shaped into tiny spheres.

Porus One is free of preservatives and additives and is excreted in the faeces. It is neither metabolised nor absorbed and does not accumulate in the body. 

Porus® One is not a powder. It consists of small,
black spheres.

Renaltec is composed of tiny, black homogenous spheres with diameters of 0.1 to 0.3 mm. Each sphere has a smooth surface and is perforated by numerous pores. The spherical shape and the inner branched channel system creates a large adsorption capacity.  

Precursors of uraemic toxins may bind inside the spheres because of an opposite electrical charge.

The pores are manufactured to be so tiny that only very small molecules, such as precursors of uraemic toxins, can enter the sphere´s interior. Particles with a larger diameter, such as vitamins, enzymes or cells, are less able to enter.

Supporting kidney health

The Renaltec spheres help bind precursors of uraemic toxins to be excreted with the cat’s faeces, with the aim of supporting the kidneys.
