What are the products of which vasa recta maintains concentration gradient?

Dear student,
Vasa recta helps in maintaining concentration gradient by reabsorbing large amount of water which otherwise would have been excreted in the urine. Thus, this concentration gradient is maintained by products or compounds which are NaCl,urea and water.
Water maintains concentration gradient at descending portion of vasa recta and Nacl and urea at ascending portion.
Regards
