VV Cranberry Concentrate - 400mg 60 caps
Cranberry juice, used for years and recommended by many doctors for patients
with recurrent urinary tract infections, has now been shown to be effective in
several clinical trials on patients with active and recurring urinary tract
infections. Cranberry juice has also been shown to reduce the amount of ionized
calcium in the urine by more than 50% in patients with recurrent kidney stones.
Cranberry produces a certain class of molecules known as flavonoids,
substances that have been investigated for their nutritional benefits and
antibacterial activity. Studies have shown that the particular flavonoids
produced by the cranberry have a strong antibacterial effect. Cranberries
contain a type of flavonoid that is capable of defeating the bacteria that cause
urinary tract infections, and this flavonoid is attached to a sugar that seeks
out the cells that line the urinary tract. Cranberry is great for urinary tract
infections and kidney stones.
