Why you'll love it

Because, while urinary tract infections are fairly common amongst women and are often short lived and self limiting, up to 40% of these infections may become chronic leading to increased antibiotic use and decreased quality of life (hello running to the bathroom every 5 minutes or that lovely burning pain…). In fact, UTIs are amongst the top three reasons why antibiotics are prescribed today, but it doesn’t have to be that way! If you suffer from chronic UTI’s, have tried implementing measures after sex without success or want to break the UTI-antibiotic cycle to avoid antibiotic resistance, then this supplement may be just what you are looking for!

A UTI (urinary tract infection, also known as cystitis or bladder infection) results from an overgrowth of bacteria causing an infection in any part of your urinary system including the urethra, bladder or kidneys. While both men and women can experience the discomfort of a UTI, women tend to suffer from them more often due to anatomical differences which make it easier for bacteria to enter and proliferate the urinary tract. Additionally, certain conditions such as warm temperatures, increased moisture and environmental pH can contribute to the likelihood and frequency of these infections.

The good news is that in many cases, UTIs are easily preventable. Staying hydrated, peeing before and after sex, wiping from front to back, avoiding tight fitting pants and changing your feminine sanitary products regularly can all be very helpful lifestyle measures that are relatively easy to implement. The use of Cranberry supplements has also been extensively studied and shown positive results for prevention when it comes to reducing the number of UTI episodes without the use of antibiotics. Keep in mind that you may still need antibiotic therapy to cure an active infection, but supplementing with a good quality, high potency cranberry supplement while on antibiotics can help reduce the course and prevent the adhesion of even more bacteria during your treatment.

Why this formula?

This unique, highly concentrated formula is simple, natural, and backed by science. The active components of the cranberry responsible for preventing adhesion of bacteria to the bladder wall are known as proanthocyanidins (PACs) and are most accurately measured and standardized using the DMAC/A2 scientific method.  This method of testing helps to ensure that you are getting only the most potent active components of the cranberry in each capsule. Whereas standard cranberry capsules available on the market typically contain 1% (or 5mg) of PACs, our supplement contains 15% (or 36mg) which is the clinically proven amount necessary to prevent and decrease the frequency of UTI’s.

This supplement is extracted from whole fresh cranberries which ensures that the active component comes from all parts of the cranberry. In fact, 125kg of cranberries are used to make 1kg of this highly concentrated formula.

Typically, cranberry products are known to have high levels of Vitamin K and Oxalates which can interfere with blood thinners and aggravate kidney stones, however this supplement has been formulated with the removal of Vitamin K and contains only has trace amounts of Oxalates.

how much plate

How much do I really need?

Small but mighty, one capsule a day is all you need to help prevent recurring UTI’s and decrease the frequency of antibiotic use. By comparison, you would need to drink 4 glasses of cranberry juice or take 9 capsules of most other formulas to achieve the same concentration of active ingredients as you’ll find in just one of our capsules!
