Below we've broken down the main functions of our Cranberry and the benefits it can provide.
Cranberries are naturally rich in a wide variety of phytochemicals which help create an environment where E. coli bacteria, responsible for creating urinary tract infections, cannot survive. Usage of Pacran® reduced UTI recurrence rates by 58% compared to placebo.
Cranberries are packed with phytochemicals which act as free radical neutralizers. Free radicals are responsible for oxidative stress in the body.
Cranberries may help support urinary tract health by the use of anti-adhesion capabilities. Whole cranberry fruit powder offers more potent benefits than other products that only contain components of cranberry. The synergistic effects of the whole fruit has been shown to inhibit bacterial adhesion to the cell walls.
