URINARY TRACT infections
(UTIs) can be painful and
inconvenient. They are also
very common. If you’re a
woman, you have an
increased risk of developing
a UTI; many experts suggest
half of all women will develop
a UTI in their lifetime, with
many experiencing repeat
infections over the years.
UTIs don’t always show signs or symptoms, but when they do, signs can include
a burning sensation while urinating, cloudy
urine, a frequent urge to urinate and pelvic
pain in women. When treated properly, UTIs
rarely lead to complications. However, an
untreated infection can have serious consequences, including recurring or serious infections and permanent kidney damage.
Research shows that cranberries can help
reduce the frequency of UTIs in individuals
with recurrent urinary infections by fighting
the bacteria that cling to the urinary tract.
However, finding pure cranberry juice at the
grocery store and drinking a healthy dose can
be a rather bitter experience.
Health Balance Cran-Max Cranberry 500 mg
capsules (Item #6809950) help prevent recurring UTIs and provide 10,000 milligrams (mg)
of fresh cranberry equivalent in each capsule.
The capsules contain 100 per cent of the
cranberry—including pulp, fibre, seed, skin
and highly concentrated juice.
Cran-Max is manufactured using a specialized patented process in which cranberry
fibre is infused with cranberry juice and
subsequently dehydrated to a powder. This
process makes each 500 mg capsule rich
in vitamins, antioxidants, anthocyanins and
proanthocyanidins, which have been shown
by some studies to help keep bacteria from
binding to the walls of the bladder and urinary
tract. The capsules contain no genetically
modified organisms, artificial flavours, colours
or sweeteners and have no preservatives,
gelatin, soy, dairy, gluten, wheat or yeast.
