Get the urinary tract benefits of cranberry without the excessive sugar

Women have a one in two chance of dealing with a urinary tract issue during their lifetime. While it may be less likely for men, they're not immune, especially once they pass the age of 50.

Benefits

If you fall into any of these groups (and there’s a good chance you’re in at least one), taking a proactive step could make all the difference in your comfort and well-being:

  • Women who have gone through menopause
  • Any man or woman who is sexually active
  • Women who are using certain types of birth control, like a diaphragm or spermicide
  • Anyone who has trouble emptying their bladder completely
  • Anyone with blood sugar or immune health questions
  • Anyone with any type of blockage of the urinary tract, such as a kidney stone or enlarged prostate
  • Anyone who has had urinary tract issues in the past

The best approach for optimal urinary tract and bladder health is to make sure you’re giving yourself the right daily care. D-Mannose and Cranberry Extract is the perfect combination for providing that daily care.

Designed for long-term, regular use for both women and men, D-Mannose and Cranberry Extract can help you maintain your bladder and urinary tract health, whether you use it by itself or as part of a daily plan. It is also GMO Free, Gluten Free, and Soy Free.

Additional Information

If you fall into any of these groups (and there’s a good chance you’re in at least one), taking a proactive step could make all the difference in your comfort and well-being:

  • Women who have gone through menopause
  • Any man or woman who is sexually active
  • Women who are using certain types of birth control, like a diaphragm or spermicide
  • Anyone who has trouble emptying their bladder completely
  • Anyone with blood sugar or immune health questions
  • Anyone with any type of blockage of the urinary tract, such as a kidney stone or enlarged prostate
  • Anyone who has had urinary tract issues in the past

There are several things you can do to help support healthy urinary tract function:

  1. Drink plenty of clear, filtered or spring water every day to dilute your urine and help flush your urinary tract system.
  2. Urinate when you feel the need - don't resist or ignore the urge to go.
  3. Take showers instead of baths.

You’ve probably heard that drinking cranberry juice may be good for your urinary tract health. Some studies do show cranberry juice can have a positive effect on urinary tract health by promoting a healthy flora. And so does drinking blueberry, peach, and apple juice.

However, relying on this option can come with a big minus for your health...

These juices are all typically loaded with sugar!

Cranberry and other fruit juices contain fructose, a simple sugar that can potentially cause health issues, including stressing your immune health.

When you eat sugars and grains (which rapidly break down to sugar), it becomes more difficult to maintain a healthy balance of flora in your gut and urinary tract.

As a result, you're more likely to experience less-than-optimal urinary tract health.

D Mannose - the benefits of cranberry juice without having to consume all the fructose

Although D-mannose is a sugar, it has very unique qualities. Unlike other sugars, it does not convert to glycogen or get stored in your liver.

Your body metabolises very little of D-mannose so it doesn’t affect your blood sugar levels or stress your body’s metabolic functions. Most of it simply filters through your kidneys and collects in your urine.

And this is key to how D-mannose works to promote urinary tract health.

When D-mannose reaches your urine, it’s available to meet up with any unwelcome inhabitants that may be lingering in your urinary tract. Upon contact, it “coats” the invaders and carries them away during normal urination.

D-mannose helps nourish your healthy flora, too. Unlike other sugars, it doesn’t disrupt or affect the actions of your “friendly” bacteria.

But, beyond the sugar issue, here’s the problem with trying to get D-mannose from cranberry juice... Cranberry and other fruit juices contain some, but not much. The D-mannose found in supplements is 10 to 50 times more potent than that in cranberry juice.

Research shows that using D-mannose significantly raises blood mannose levels, which is what you need to raise the amount in your urine. And the amount it takes to do that effectively is more than what you may find in juice.

Another benefit of cranberries...

While many people assume it’s the D-mannose in cranberries that’s influencing their urinary tract health, there’s at least one other factor...

At first, researchers believed cranberry was valuable for bladder and urinary tract health because of its ability to lower urinary tract pH.

However, then they discovered that cranberry contains naturally occurring compounds that act directly in your urinary tract to promote health.

One of these compounds is proanthocyanidins (PACs), phytochemicals that provide antioxidant and protective qualities in your mouth, gastrointestinal tract and urinary tract.

PACs are also found in green tea, grapes, apples, and chocolate. However, the type of PACs found in cranberry – called A-type PACs – are different from the   B-type PACs found in these other foods.

Studies show that only cranberry PACs can potentially prevent unfriendly invaders from sticking to your urinary tract walls.

Researchers now agree that this unique quality is cranberry’s claim-to-fame in supporting urinary tract health. And dose really does matter.

With this cranberry extract, because it’s a concentrated extract and not a juice, you get cranberry’s valuable assets without all the fructose you find in cranberry juice.

The organic cranberries are grown under organic agricultural practices without synthetic pesticides and fertilisers not allowed under organic farming rules.

Suggested Use

Adults, as a dietary supplement, take 2 capsules daily.
