Cranberry Plus capsules contain a concentrated cranberry fruit extract that prevents urinary tract infections and improves antioxidant capacity. Approximately 10-20% of women experience one or more incidents of urinary discomfort or UTI each year. Cranberries (Vaccinium macrocarpon) are rich in polyphenol antioxidant compounds such as proanthocyanidins, which reduce the adhesiveness of E. coli bacteria to the uroepithelial cells that line the bladder.
In both healthy women and those with a history of bladder infection, supplementation with cranberry extract has been shown to significantly reduce the adhesiveness of two E. coli strains obtained from urine samples. Regular cranberry supplementation helps to reduce UTI incidence in women at increased risk of UTI infection, and may help to improve lower urinary tract symptoms in men. Due to their high polyphenol concentration, cranberries have also been shown to reduce oxidative stress in healthy participants and those with metabolic syndrome.
