Clinical research has shown that the ingredients in CranBiotic can help maintain critical flora balance in the urinary and gastro-intestinal tracts. Furthermore, the special microencapsulated spores in Lactospore + eliminate the potential negative interaction between cranberry and certain probiotics, rendering the probiotics ineffective.
Research indicates that cranberry helps inhibit harmful pathogens from adhering to the mucosal cells lining the urinary tract. A clinical study utilizing CranEX Cranberry extract showed excellent benefits with chronic UTI sufferers. This ultra high-potency, patented sugar-free cranberry extract is concentrated at 150:1 and is standardized for 30% polyphenols as proanthocyanidins (PAC).
Delivering viable live probiotics to the intestinal tract is a formidable technical challenge. Lactospore + is a naturally microencapsulated sporiferous preparaton of Lactobacillus sporogenes that is proven to deliver viable lactobacilli to the intestine. It is room-temperature stable and highly resistant to the action of heat, gastric acids and bile, containing microorganisms capable of rectifying the gastro-intestinal flora imbalance. CranBiotic provides 200 million friendly bacteria cells per daily dose. Lactospore + is uniquely engineered to remain viable in solution with CranEX high-potency cranberry extract.
CranBiotic is further enhanced with Fructooligosaccharides (FOS), which are non-digestible dietary fibers that help keep the gastro-intestinal system healthy by nourishing and promoting friendly bacteria; and Cratavin +, a standardized extract that provides natural support for urinary health maintenance.
CranBiotic is potency-enhanced with Futurebiotics BioAccelerators. Clinically-proven Bioperine + (Piper nigrum extract) improves nutrient bioavailability, while our proprietary natural compound of Ginger extract, Trikatu, and super-potent Digezyme + boosts digestion and absorption.
CranEX employs a unique, patented extraction process that produces a 150:1 super cranberry concentrate.
Healthy Urinary Tract Action Plan - The urinary tract is the body's filtering system for removal of liquid wastes. Harmful bacteria may invade the urinary tract, cling to the inside walls of the urethra and bladder and then multiply, resulting in a urinary tract infection (UTI). Contributing factors include the use of antibiotics, structural abnormalities of the urinary tracts, sexual intercourse, excessive sugar consumption, chronic vaginitis and waiting tool long to empty the bladder. Maintaining a balance of friendly flora is important to preserving and restoring a healthy urinary tract.
