Whole Fruit Cranberry Extract, Clinically Proven to Support Urinary Tract Health
New clinical evidence demonstrates the effectiveness of Urophenol®, a proprietary whole fruit cranberry extract with a high concentration of proanthocyanidins (PACs). When compared to typical cranberry supplements containing low PACs or non-standardized cranberry ingredients, a randomized, double-blind controlled study found that Urophenol® demonstrated a 43% reduction in the number of symptomatic urinary tract infections (UTIs) and symptomatic UTI with pyuria in women with moderate UTI recurrence.
The study also demonstrated that the high level of PACs in Urophenol® contributed to its multi-level modes of action, from the gut to the urinary tract. PACs are chains of polymeric flavonoids which interact strongly with proteins and glycoproteins. They have been shown to suppress the adhesion of E.coli, the bacteria known to cause urinary tract infections.
