A Healthy Urinary Tract Starts with Cranberries
Cranberry supplements can be used to sustain a healthy urinary tract. A unique cranberry supplement combined with probiotics and vitamin C boosts immune system health, too. Beat it, E coli! Let’s see how a unique cranberry supplement promotes slippery urinary tract health.
E coli (Escherichia coli) is a bacteria found in the intestines and fecal matter. Think Snidely Whiplash. The very definition of a urinary tract infection is that E coli bacteria has invaded the urinary tract. These bacteria have hair-like fimbriae that protrude and produce adhesins. Furthermore, these attach to receptor cells in the urinary tract. Imagine bacteria with “suckers” coating the urinary wall which consequently cause irritation and inflammation. Additionally, in the worst case, these nasty critters could migrate further into the kidney area. This is serious. Medical attention is in order.
The likelihood of urinary tract problems increases as we age. This is true no matter if we’re female or male while women are 50X more likely to experience a UTI than a man. Declining estrogen levels increase the risk of urinary tract infection in aging women. A swollen prostate can increase the risk in aging men. Once you get one, then you’re more likely to get another one later. This is because the bacteria burrow deep in the tissues where antibiotics may not be as effective.
Infections of the urethra often occur during sexual activity or after using the bathroom. You would know it if this issue was on your health radar. Burning, trickling urination is something you don’t forget. Other symptoms are fever, chills, and abdominal pain.
Urinary Tract Health with Cranberries
Now the good news! Starting in May, New Jersey cranberry bogs start to burst into blossom yielding the tart fruit later in the season. Two key compounds found in cranberries are fructose (or D-mannose), and proanthocyanins. Together they promote urinary tract slip-and-slide for the E coli. Nutrients found in cranberry extract bond with the bacteria “suckers” and get carried away when you urinate. Drink plenty of water. Get a slippery urinary tract.
Unique Cranberry Supplement Support
A good quality cranberry concentrate, like Solgar CranFlora capsules, can help support a happy, healthy urinary tract that resists invaders. It does this with 3 important ingredients:
- Cranberries help remove unwanted compounds from the urinary tract. This is how waste products get cleansed from the body. The cran supplement contains enough cranberry to be equivalent to 40,000 mg (40 g) of fresh cranberries—without the calories of juice! Leave it to nature’s cranberry fruit for support and relief.
- Probiotic L. acidophilus is found in fermented foods and in the gastrointestinal tract. This is where a large percentage of the body’s immune system is located. L. acidophilus supports normal, friendly immune function. These are the good bacteria! Think Dudley Do Right.
- Vitamin C plays an important role in supporting immune function. Ester-C® is a buffered, non-acidic vitamin C. Choose easy-to-digest Ester C when you’re sensitive to acidity. The patented, naturally-occurring vitamin C metabolites help increase the absorption and bioavailability of this essential nutrient. Your white blood cells will love it. Another win for your immunity. C also supports healthy inflammation processes.
How can we support the urinary tract naturally? This one dietary supplement, CranFlora, contains all three ingredients. The capsules are non-GMO, gluten free, and appropriate for vegans. Download our cranberry supplement informational flyer.
