No, it does not: Renavive contains more than a dozen ingredients (P Niruri, T Terrestris, Parsley Seed Extract, L Inermis, F Racemosa, B Diffusa, C Nurvala, R Sativus, H Indicus, A Aspera, D Pedicellata, Asphaltum, MM Root). The company claims it 1) relieves pain, 2)dissolves stones, 3)"cleanse & protects" the kidneys, 4)prevents stones. Their claims are unsubstantiated and I don't recommend it.
