Urine Tract Supplement
• For centuries cranberry has been a popular folk remedy for urinary health. Research suggests that its benefits may be due to its ability to acidify the urine.
• A study done in mice and published in the Journal of Urology demonstrated that cranberry inhibited the adherence of Escherichia coli to the epithelial cells in urinary tracts by 80%. E. coli is the primary cause of urinary infections. Similar activity was found in human subjects as well.
• Research published in the New England Journal of Medicine has identified that certain compounds in cranberry, namely the condensed tannins or flavanoids (proanthocyanadins), are responsible for the anti-adherence effect.
• Several clinical studies have found cranberry juice beneficial in preventing UTI’s. The amount of juice required is 10 to 20 ounces per day and it may contain a fair amount of sugar and calories.
As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule, one to three times daily, between meals, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
