Cranberry helps maintain optimal urinary tract health
Did you know that 20% of all women have it, 80% of all women will get it, and that 1 in 7 women will see their doctor because of it? Still, no one likes to admit that they have a painful, burning sensation when urinating.
Post-pubescent women are especially prone to urinary tract infections, which are caused mainly by the E. coli bacteria. The illness is more likely to strike during the summer months, during pregnancy, or when one's resistance is low.
Doctors typically prescribe antibiotics. However, these do not protect against a recurrence of the infection. In addition, antibiotics can cause side effects such as a disorders of the intestinal flora or allergic reactions, which can be cause for concern in cases of chronic, recurring urinary tract infections.
Consequently, individuals with chronic urinary tract infections are thrilled to learn that nature provides an effective alternative to antibiotics in the form of cranberries.
The full power of the American cranberry
The cranberry is a particularly valuable fruit. It contains a number of important nutrients. While its vitamin C content is low compared to other types of berries (e.g. black currant), the amount of vitamin B2 it contains is remarkable.
The more potent American cranberry has been intensively researched. Nevertheless, it is still not possible to identify the active substances with 100% certainty.
However, it is assumed that the substance Arbutin contained in the cranberries inhibits bacteria. Furthermore, Cranmax boasts a very high 36mg of proanthocyanidins per capsule (secondary active plant substances), which also contributes to maintaining a healthy urinary tract.
Cranmax contains the active ingredient spectrum of all cranberries
In studies, Cranmax has shown that it can prevent and relieve the symptoms of urinary tract infections. It also exhibits a more powerful and faster effect than other cranberry products.
Cranmax is made from the whole cranberry, i.e. from the pulp, skin, seeds and juice. A special manufacturing process is used to concentrate the whole fruit into a powder, however without using solvents or preservatives.
In fact, 17kg of fresh cranberries are required to produce half a kilogram of Cranmax concentrate. This means that Cranmax is 3 times higher in antioxidants than conventional cranberry juice.
The integrated, patented Bio-Shield® Technology protects the Cranmax cranberry concentrate from being degraded by stomach acid. As a result, a greater amount of active ingredients reaches the small intestine, where the concentrated, active plant ingredients can be more completely absorbed into the blood by certain enzymes.
The bioactive agents of Cranmax cranberry concentrate prevent E. coli bacteria from settling in the walls of the urinary tract. Consequently, the bacteria are flushed out of the urinary tract.
