Cranberry juice and cranberry extracts have shown benefit in preventing and treating urinary tract infections. In the U.S. alone epidemiological research shows that by age 26, one-third of women will have at least one urinary tract infection (UTI) diagnosed by a physician.
It is estimated that E. coli accounts for 80% of all UTIs in women. Recent studies have shown that components of cranberry juice, probably the proanthocyanidin flavonoids, reduce the ability of bacteria like E. coli to adhere to the lining of the bladder and urethra. In order for bacteria to infect they must first adhere to this mucosal lining. By interfering with adherence, cranberry juice or extracts greatly reduces the likelihood of infection and helps the body fight off infection.
As well, cranberries are high on the ORAC scale (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) that measures the the antioxidant ability of a substance. Research shows that high ORAC fruits and vegetables may help protect against chronic age-related conditions like loss of memory and coordination.
Suggested Use: CranRich Super Strength Cranberry Concentrate provides a high dose of bioactive cranberry nutrients known to prevent and treat recurrent urinary tract infections. The high proanthocyanidin content helps prevent pathogenic bacteria from attaching to urinary tract walls, which can cause infection. Cranberry’s antibacterial activity also inhibits ulcer- and cavity-causing bacteria to reduce the frequency of peptic ulcers and cavities.
Directions (Adults): Take 1 capsule, 1-3 times daily, or as directed by a health practitioner. Keep out of reach of children. For freshness, store in a cool, dry place.
Cautions: Consult a physician if you have symptoms suggestive of a urinary tract infection (UTI) such as pain or burning on urination; increased urinary frequency; or cloudy, foul-smelling or dark urine. While cranberries may lower the risk of UTI recurrence and diminish number of E. coli, urinary infections do require appropriate medical attention. Always drink large amounts of water to help flush out pathogens and their toxins.
