Drinking cranberry juice has been a traditional method used to prevent urinary tract infections. Cranberries contain antibacterial compounds that act against the coliform bacteria that cause urinary tract infections. The primary mechanism of action may be the decrease in the adhesion of bacteria (most notably E. Coli) to urinary tract cells. However, the disadvantages to this include the ingestion of unwanted calories, artificial preservatives, colours, flavours, sodium and refined sugar.
Cranberry Complex 500 mg helps prevent bacteria that initiate urinary tract infections from adhering to urinary tract lining. It contains naturally occurring proanthocyandins that possess antibacterial activity. Each capsule is derived from 500 mg of fresh, pure cranberry juice concentrate. A daily dose of one capsule is equivalent to an 8oz glass of cranberry juice.
All the natural benefits of cranberry juice without the calories or added sugar.

Cran-Max™ Cranberry………………450 mg (Vaccinium macrocarpon, fruit)

stocked up when it was on sale. I find these cranberry supplements really helpful in preventing recurring UTIs!
I've been using this for years to prevent bladder infections and it works beautifully. I recently discovered that it can work to reduce ear-infections too, so I've been giving them to my son who gets them every year during the fall/winter seasons.
I used to suffer from at least 3 urinary tract infections per year and antibiotics were my only remedy. Now I consume these capsules regularly and haven't had a bout of UTI in over a year! Interestingly, it was my family doctor who recommended I consume cranberry juice to prevent them but these are more affordable and convenient.
At the first sign of a urinary tract infection, I take four of these with two Jamieson Vitamin C capsules, and the urinary tract infection doesn't stand a chance. These pills really work!!!
Just started using this product to maintain good urinary health and it is amazing. I highly recommend this.
