Benefits backed by science
Cranberry is a superfood that’s been used for centuries thanks to its high level of nutrients and antioxidants. Cranberries prevent bacteria from adhering to the wall of the bladder. The anti-adhesion properties of cranberry, the proanthocyanidins, prevent adhesion of harmful bacteria which may reduce the risk of infection in the urinary tract.
D-mannose is a simple sugar that occurs naturally in some cells in the human body. Clinical trials evidence that D-mannose may also treat or prevent urinary tract infections. Research suggests it stops certain bacteria from sticking to the bladder walls. Scientists believe that the bacteria stick to the sugar instead. This helps the bacteria leave the body through your urine. Fewer bacteria in the bladder lowers your risk of a urinary tract infection.
Why take our Cranberry Blend
Our highly concentrated Cranberry Blend is vegan and rich in vital B vitamins including vitamin B1 (thiamin), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B3 (niacin) and vitamin B6. Our Cranberry Blend capsules also organically contain vitamin C because the berry naturally has a high amount of the potent antioxidant.
Our Cranberry Blend also contains d-mannose, which research suggests may also treat or prevent urinary tract infections by stopping certain bacteria from sticking to the bladder walls, but rather sticking to the sugar instead.
Cranberry has a high level of the antioxidant proanthocyanidins (PACs), which supports your body to block bacteria from attaching to the walls of your urinary tract. The PACs help your body to prevent infection, and research shows that cranberry supports a lower risk of UTIs, and can help improve your immune function. Our Cranberry Blend is made from a patented cranberry extract with a market leading concentration of PACs.
Our Probiotics could also help prevent UTIs.
Recurrent UTIs afflict a great number of women around the world. The use of probiotics, especially lactobacilli, as contained in our Probiotics, has been considered for the prevention of UTIs. Since lactobacilli dominate the urogenital flora of healthy premenopausal women, it has been suggested that restoration of the urogenital flora, which is dominated by uropathogens, with lactobacilli may protect against UTIs.
Approximately 50% of women will get one or more UTIs over the course of their lifetime. Evidence suggests that cranberry stop bacteria from adhering to the urinary tract wall and help prevent recurrent UTIs. In addition, cranberry may help lower risk of heart disease, improve blood pressure, boost immunity and manage cholesterol levels. Cranberries are a rich source of antioxidants, which help neutralize free radical damage.
Cranberries contain a particularly powerful group of polyphenols called proanthocyanidins. A-type proanthocyanidins appear to prevent pathogenic bacteria from sticking to urinary tract cells. Polyphenolic compounds in cranberries are also believed to be responsible for cranberries beneficial effects on cardiovascular health. Cranberries also offer vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin K which support immune function, blood clotting, and vision.
Cranberry pills are generally safe but a small number of people have reported stomach upset. Anyone with a sensitivity or allergy to salicylates (e.g. aspirin) or a history of kidney stones may want to consult their practitioner before taking cranberry supplements. If you are pregnant or have any other pre-existing medical conditions, we also suggest speaking with your healthcare professional before supplementing cranberry.
Research suggests you can take Cranberry Blend when it's convenient for you. We'd recommend earlier in the day and with a meal and water to help absorption. Avoid taking with caffeine as this can prevent absorption and increase excretion.
