Each capsule provides the equivalent of 21.6 g of dried cranberries and is a great source of antioxidants. Approximately 10-20% of women experience one or more incidents of urinary discomfort or UTI each year.
Cranberries are rich in polyphenol antioxidant compounds such as proanthocyanidins, which reduce the adhesiveness of 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 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.
