Combines cranberry concentrate made from 100% cranberry fruit solids and d-mannose for time-tested, concentrated support of urinary tract health*.
Cranberry concentrate provides urinary tract support without the unwanted sugar found in cranberry juice or juice cocktails. It enhances the acidity of urine and maintains a healthy urinary tract ecology. A randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled trial involving over 150 female volunteers reported positive support for a healthy urinary tract after administration of a cranberry beverage. d-Mannose, a simple sugar found in cranberries and other fruit, is included in this formula to provide enhanced support. One study suggested that d-Mannose may play a role in supporting healthy genitourinary function by maintaining a healthy mucosal surface.*

Cranberries are known for their ability to prevent the build up of bacteria in the urinary tract.
Here is an innovative way to get all the cranberry power you need. 2 softgels a day will help keeps things clear.
Can a glass of cranberry juice a day keep the urologist away? You might have heard that cranberries help prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs), but are these berries really as medicinal as they are tart and tasty?
There is some science behind the claims that cranberries can protect against urinary tract infections, especially in women who are prone to getting UTIs. Yet the benefit for other groups of people isn’t as clear. Plus, there are no real recommendations on how much cranberry juice you’d need to drink to get any protection against UTIs.
Cranberries: The Science Behind Urinary Tract Protection
Scientists used to believe that cranberries protected against UTIs by making the urine more acidic and, therefore. inhospitable to bacteria like Escherichia coli (E. coli) that cause urinary tract infections. Now the thinking has shifted.
Researchers now believe that cranberries contain substances that prevent infection-causing bacteria from sticking to the urinary tract walls. There are a couple of different theories about how exactly cranberries do this. Some studies show that certain antioxidants in cranberries change the bacteria so that they can’t stick to the urinary tract. Another idea is that cranberries create a Teflon-like slippery coating on the urinary tract walls that prevents E. coli from getting a good grip.
Studies that have analyzed the effects of cranberry products on urinary tract infections have gotten mixed results. Here’s an overview of the evidence:
A few studies have found that drinking cranberry juice or taking cranberry pills can prevent UTIs, especially in women who are at risk for these infections:
Before you rush out and buy cartons of cranberry juice, there are a few caveats you should know about.
Currently, no medical organization recommends drinking cranberry juice or taking cranberry pills to prevent UTIs. However, the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada does suggest that women who often get UTIs drink pure cranberry-lingonberry juice to reduce their risk.
The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology has stated that drinking cranberry juice has been shown to lower symptomatic UTIs but also states that there is not enough evidence to recommend its use to prevent UTIs.
For people who want to try cranberry products for UTI prevention, there are no real recommendations on how much to take or which form (juice vs. pills) works better. Different cranberry products have very different compositions.
Bottom line: If you like cranberry juice and it doesn’t bother your stomach, aggravate another medical problem, or interact with medications, drink it. It might help prevent urinary tract infections, but don’t expect it to magically cure every urinary tract problem that ails you.
